Beltane blessings to all of you who celebrate it!
I love how the whole world seems to be blooming at this time of year (though my allergies don’t love it quite so much.) To celebrate this May Day, here is a round up of beautiful flowers that DON’T make me sneeze:
Wildflower Crown by Tiny Owl Knits:
This simple knit headband is embellished with tiny crochet flowers. The perfect accessory for any spring celebration!
Layered Ribbon Flower by Lorene Haythorn Eppolite:
Also available on Ravelry. Originally designed for a valentines day hat, these would make great embellishments for blankets, dresses – almost anything! The post also includes instructions for making the flower into a pin. Lorene has lots more free flower patterns like this one in her Flower Repository.
Shell Stitch Dog Collar with a Big Flower by Sara Sach :
Also available on Ravelry. This is a fun and unique pattern for all the dog lovers out there! After all, why should humans be the only ones who get to wear handmade flowers?
Easy Tiny Flower by Sara McFall:
Also available on Ravelry. This simple, 2 row pattern is so quick and easy, you can make a whole basketful! A great way to use up leftover scraps and add a little decorative touch to any project.
Double Layer Daisy by Lauren Brown:
Also available on Ravelry. The tapered petals and double layer design give this great flower that little extra touch of realism, but it’s still easy enough to make in just a few minutes!
Simply Irresistible Crochet Flower by Oombawka Design:
This flower pattern features a unique, ruffled texture in the center. The post has a great photo tutorial for the flower, and also has a link to the free hat pattern it was first used on!
Flower Garden Bonnet and Leaf Cape Cover by Elisabeth Spivey:
This little outfit makes me smile every time I look at it – what a great baby gift or photo prop idea! The hat is available in bigger sizes too.
Flower Bib by Jessie Rayot:
Also available on Ravelry. Pretty and frilly, just like every little girl’s bib should be! This bib features Jessie’s Large Flat Flower motif in the center, with a scalloped edge and strap.
