LET'S PLAY - CROCHET FUN - FREE PATTERN #2

CROCHET FREE PATTERN SPRING GARLAND MOTIF


SPRING GARLAND - EASTER GARLAND - 5 PETAL MOTIF

Week #2 of Let's Play - Crochet Fun

How did you go last week?  Did you enjoy making the Spring/Easter Coaster?
How many did you make? and did you use different colours?  Did you have any difficulties with the pattern?
I would love to hear from you and also see your creations.

I had a hectic week, so only managed to make four, need to make another two more coasters for my Easter Sunday table setting, and I will be more than happy. 

But right now I am making these easy-peasy garland flowers...


CROCHET FREE PATTERN SPRING GARLAND MOTIF

Simple 5 Petal Motif
This week's free pattern is a very simple motif, where you can exercise and perfect your chain stitch.  

The pattern is an easy three (3) rounds of crochet.

I started with chunky yarn and then proceeded to make a few smaller motifs using a smaller hook with 4ply (Fingering) and 8ply (DK) yarn.  

You can see the different sizes below.

So are you ready to make a few spring motifs?  Get yourself a cuppa and grab some yarn and your hooks and let's play, let's have some crochet fun!

HOOK:  H-8 (5mm)
