Following on from the best-selling Nicky Epstein’s Knitted Flowers, Epstein now brings her beautiful blooms to crocheters: over 40 crochet flowers and patterns for garments to use these floral embellishments. Featuring Vogue Knitting’s characteristically beautiful layout and photography, this keepsake volume features stitch pattern, petal constructed, cord and felted flowers. Some make fanciful pieces of jewelry; others can adorn handicrafts for a fabulous finishing touch.
Epstein offers yarn suggestions and colors, and encourages crocheters to experiment with all the interesting choices in the market today to create breathtaking corsages and bouquets. Among the pretty garden blossoms: a calla lily, blue and purple pansies, a delicate and lacy white wedding boutonniere, complete with a pearl center; and a selection of floral corkscrews. A Selection of the Crafter's Choice Book Club.
