Crochet Floral Wreath out of Flowers, Leaves and Pistils
What you'll learn
- make 3 kinds of flowers: Puff flower, Hibiscus flower and Irish lace rose
- make 2 kind of pistils: Corkscrew and Irish lace round button
- make an Irish lace leaf
- understand pattern reading - which I explain through the above projects
- make a Floral Wreath using the items we have just learned
- The basic crochet stitches such as slip knot, chain stitch, double crochet etc.
- You will need yarn and a crochet hook. I suggest for the easier handling to choose yarn you can work with easily, not too thin, not too thick.
- You will also need scissors and a darner needle
- Styrofoam wreath
First we start with these uncommon patterns:
Irish Lace Rose
Irish Lace Button - we use this as a pistil
Irish Lace Leaf
I carefully choose these patterns, because I wanted them to be not so obvious. So when you look at the result, not for sure you can make it just like that. It also took me a while to find out, how they are made, therefore I find them very exciting.
The Irish Lace Crochet is especially close to my heart. This is a trend in crochet, which I find really special and it is pretty different, although using the very same stitches.
In the end of each item, I will explain the pattern, also you can download and print them too.
In the second part of the course, we will make the Floral Wreath.
I will use a different yarn for the wreath compared I am teaching the items with, hence this would have been too thin to demonstrate with.
I use the British terms, but I attach a dictionary, and I will also write up on the screen the American crochet terms when they are needed.
Choose your favorite colors, get the right yarn, can be solid colors, or gradient, buy a wreath base, get some ordinary pins, and let's start it!
You will enjoy every second of it, (I do ;)) and in the end you will have a fabulous floral wreath, which never withers.
Who this course is for:
- This course is designed for those, who are familiar with the basic crochet stitches and techniques.
- Those, who never held crochet hooks in their hand, this course might be overwhelming, therefore not recommended.
- Once you are familiar with the basic stitches, it is enough, from here I explain everything in detail.
I am an e-learning, marketing and business specialist, and also a scuba diving instructor. I have learned to crochet from my mum in early ages, and have kept on learning and practising it since. In crochet there is no limit, and you can basically do it anywhere, since for crochet you need very few components. I keep on learning new techniques and I am very happy to share this really enjoyable handicraft with others.
