I wanted to show you how to make pretty crochet floral blanket.
What you need:
Colorful yarn (I use red heart but you can use any medium worsted weight yarn)
Size K crochet hook (you can use a smaller hook but I wouldn't advise using anything larger)
The flowers I use for this blanket are called millefiore flowers. Here is how I make them.
*make a magic loop with your yarn*
1st round: chain 3, 1 triple crochet. chain 3 slip stitch into the ring. Do this 7 times
pull the loop tight so the middle of the flower tightens together
fasten off and tie together
The flower should look like this
Crochet as many of these flowers that you can, I typically make a bunch in between my regular crochet projects and store them in my TOMs bag.
Once I have a bag full of flowers I start stitch them together using the embroidery needle. What I will do is get 6-8 of the same color flowers, stitch them together in bunches and then stitch the bunches all together until I have a blanket.
Its hard work but you will absolutely adore the complete blanket. If you don't want to crochet the blanket yourself I should have some up for sale in my shop next week.
