Crochet Bouquet – finally

I have been fiddling around crocheting three dimensional flowers for about five days now. The instructions came in a book by Suzann Thompson, Crochet Bouquet. This particular style is called Aster-oids. They are very simple to make, in terms of stitches, using only chain, single crochet and slip stitch.

I found the idea of making the flowers to be a lot more fun than the actual making turned out to be. Working them was a rather fiddly undertaking. The one great virtue of flowers made out of yarn is that they won’t ever wilt.


One of six children, I was raised by a busy mom, who instilled in me a love of fabric. Though I learned to sew and knit at a young age, it was the arrival of my first grandchild that pushed me into action. A long-time knitter, I am now ready to explore all things fiber.

  1. Your crochet flowers turned out beautifully. I know this kind of crochet can be fiddly and frustrating. Good for you for hanging in there. I have not been too productive lately. I am trying to finish my Dear Jane quilt and the triangles and challenging. Google Dear Jane Quilt so you can see what I am talking about.
