I promised a look at what all those colourful ends had turned into; so here it is, a cushionful of daisies! It is a happy combination of 2 of my favourite things – I like flowers and I like crochet so the 2 together for me are a winning combination.
32 multi-coloured daisy squares, all edged with lovely soft cream lambs’ wool.
Finished off with some cream buttons which have a distressed finish.
I found the pattern in this book, and really loved how it looked especially when I started playing around with many different colours in a random mix. It was a lovely project to work on, very restful and rewarding to see how the mix of hues brought the end result together. The flowers were made with a mixture of yarns; predominantly acrylic but also some wool/acrylic mix and other blends of wool and synthetic fibres. A riotous rainbow was what I was after, so the colour was the main consideration in my choices. The cream lambs wool is a favourite from this Ebay seller, just a lovely yarn to work with and it sets off the daisies a treat.
