There is nothing better to cheer yourself up than colourful spring flowers on a grey drizzly day. Now you don’t need to wait until the weather warms up to have lots of beautiful blooms in your home. Try making this simple crochet garland in all your favourite spring shades.
- Scrap yarn in all your favourite Spring colours
- Corresponding crochet hook for yarn
- Yarn Needle
- Magic Ring
- Double Crochet (dc) – US Terminology
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Slip Stitich (sl st)
Choose your favourite method to create a garland cord to your desired length. This could be as simple as a chain stitch, a foundation single crochet or a crochet cord which is my preferred option. This will give you an idea of the number of flowers you need to fill your space.
Seven Petal Flower
Working into a magic ring.
Chain 3, work 14 dc stiches and join with a slip stitch to 1st Dc (ignore ch3).
(These are the central spines to work your petals around.)
Step 1: Join contrasting colour to any dc with a slip stitch.
Step 2: Ch7 then turn, sl st in second ch from hook, work another 5 sl st back down the foundation chain.
Step 3: Sl st into original dc, sl st in next 2 dc
Repeat steps 2 & 3 until you have completed your circle. (7 Spines)
Sc into 1st ch, sc into the first ascending ch, 5 dc into each ch, 2sc in top turning ch, 5 dc into each descending ch, sc into last ch. (4sc, 10dc)
optional – sl st into centre sl st from round two to keep your petals neat
Repeat this into each of the spines until you return to start, sl st, fasten off and weave in ends.
Your Spring Flower is complete.
Now you need to make as many flowers as you like and attach them to your garland cord. I find that odd numbers work best but follow your heart and make however many you want.

Quick Tip: You can reuse your garland cord for more than one project over the seasons and attach whatever motifs you like using snap fasteners. This makes for a quick and easy transition from one look to the next .
