Hello!

I wanted something more old fashion and country style. The rug I had had for a long time but after I put the crocheted flowers onto it it had a new leave of life. Gave it sort of an old world charm.


Material

  • 10-20 8 ply wool or any scrap wool
  • 4mm crochet hook
  • 1 any old blanket or crocheted rug you already have

Method

  1. Make crochet flowers to put on blanket or throw over/rug.
  2. For large flowers,

    Row 1: Using colour 1 yarn, Ch 4, join to form ring

    Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as 1st dc) , dc 11 times, sl st to top of ch 3 made. Fasten off. (12 dc).

    Row 3: Using colour 2 yarn, join with slip stitch to top of any st. Ch 2, 3 tr in same st, ch 2, sl st next st. *Ch 2, 3 tr in next sc, ch 2, sl st in next sc* repeat * to * around, joining with slip st in bottom of first st made. Fasten off and weave in ends.
  3. Sew all crocheted flowers randomly on blanket/rug. Admire your finished project.

Notes

I tend to crochet rugs in Winter as it relaxes me and keeps my knees warm. First time I have tried the flowers though.
