Chelsea Flower Show Inspired Patterns

By Amy Sosbe 3 years ago

The world-renowned Chelsea Flower Show begins on Tuesday 21st May for 5 wonderful days! In celebration of this quintessentially British event, we’ve found some of our loveliest patterns inspired by nature and all things floral.

The Royal Horticultural Society was founded in 1808 and the very first Chelsea Flower Show held at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, London was in 1913, an amazing 106 years ago!

Did you know that the Great Pavilion at RHS Chelsea is roughly 11,775 square metres, enough room to park 500 London buses?! The show is also attended by 157,000 visitors each year!

Of these visitors, includes members of the British Royal Family and this year, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, has co-designed The RHS Back to Nature Garden, along with the award-winning landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White. The garden is based in a woodland setting as a space for families and communities to come together and connect with nature.

The patterns we’ve found encapsulate our beautiful natural world, from floral cushions to knitted vegetables!

This super fun children’s jumper is as fun to knit as it is to wear! Knitted in the lovely King Cole Cottonsoft DK yarn.

Hours of fun can be had with these crocheted garden vegetables.
