Are you ready for Mother's Day?
Not only does it provide an occasion to spend some quality time with loved ones, it offers the perfect excuse to dig out your knitting needles or crochet hook to make your mum something really special.
After all, a homemade present has such a unique charm.
Any great gift needs a card to go with it and luckily for you, we have a fabulous crochet pattern for a flower to attach to one in our online store.
We've chosen to use a hot pink DK yarn for the petals and a vivid green for the stem, but you can be creative with other colours. The pattern requires an intermediate level of crocheting knowledge, making it ideal for a beginner looking for a bit of a challenge.
Mum will also adore being handed some beautiful hand-crocheted blooms you've made with our Rose Bouquet Crochet Pattern.
Another benefit of stitching a bunch of roses? They won't perish after Mother's Day like fresh flowers so will look perky in their vase all year round.
As well as yarn and a size 3.00 crochet hook, you'll need florist's wire and green florist's tape to give your bouquet a professional finish.
The team here at The Knitting Network HQ all love sitting down for a cuppa and catch-up with our mums.
With this in mind, we suggest surprising yours with this glorious beach hut tea cosy.
Its adorable design is sure to remind her of fun days spent by the sea with the family. Use a combination of pastel shades and it'll bring a fun pop of colour to her kitchen too.
Our Bobble Top Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern is just as cute if you'd rather get to work on a more subtle design.
Mother's Day 2017 is on Sunday 26 March so you'd better get crafting!
