If you missed the start of our exclusive CAL do not fear. You can still download the patterns for free:
It all began with the meconopsis which was arguably the simplest of the three floral motifs. Two colours were used in each motifs with a whopping 80 motifs in 20 different colour ways.
This was followed by the hellebore flower with three different shades.
The beautifully textured scabious was our third and final bloom.
It was great to see some of you getting stuck in to our latest CAL over the last few weeks and sharing photos of your progress over on our Knitting Network Facebook page. Here are some of our highlights:
Sarah E Laking enjoyed crocheting a fabulous range of the scabious motifs in an array of colours ready to sew together into something lovely. Looking great, Sarah!
It was blooming brilliant to see the colour theme Helen Squire chose for her meconopsis motifs. Having the double layer motif creates an interesting 3D texture.
