Summer Flower Branches


An whimsical decoration for the bedroom, inspired by this sakura motif

How to make the flower (this is my interpretation of the motif, not the pattern by Yoko Johnston):
chain 4, close the chain with a slip stitch:


Chain 2, *sc, ch1* 4 times, change the color, sl st, chain 4, 2 tr in one stitch:


Chain 3, sl st. The first petal is ready. Make 4 more petals. Transfer the last sl st behind the flower:



Chain 3, sl st to connect with the opposite petal. Try to tug in the ends in the process of crocheting the flower and thus save time and effort to weave in four ends after the flower is ready:

I'm not an experienced crocheter, so making a flower took me about 6-7 min. Make as many flowers as you want:


I made about 30 and arranged them on lime-tree branches:

  7. I lOVE this! I think I could possibly even do this. We made some spring flower branches with little puffs of roving, so I think I need to try the summer flowers too.
