I enjoyed making the Owl Crochet Card for my friend in January that I decided to make another one. This time a crochet flower card for my other lovely friend.
I think making cards like this could be my ‘thing’ I really enjoy making them. I’m thinking of maybe doing a mermaid next? Or perhaps a fox? I’m not sure. What do you think? I know lots of patterns for crochet flower.
I do love to crochet. I think my favourite thing to make is blankets. I like amigurumi which is, basically, anything small. But my eyes struggle with tiny details. Plus they need more concentration. I mostly love a pattern that I can just carry on doing while listening to my e-books. Something a little less complicated.
My daughter bought me a wool pack and the pattern for a cardigan for Christmas. It was such a lovely yarn and I was so pleased with the way it turned out.
I took this photo before I washed and shaped it. But honestly, I couldn’t wait to wear it. It’s so cosy and purple is my favourite colour.
I’m a little less keen on making clothes because, even though they are a repeating pattern, they do require sewing and I’m not a huge fan. But saying that, I have just started my very first piece of embroidery, it’s a little bee and so far so good, but it has a long way to go just yet.
In case you missed it, here is my Crochet Owl Card.
What a gorgeous cardigan – I love the colours – and the crochet flower card is so pretty. I’ve never learned how to crochet but maybe I’ll try and learn one day!

Your card is beautiful. I love the idea of a crochet card. They could keep it as a card or turn it into a brooch. My sister gave us an embroidered wedding card. I loved it and it’s framed in our bedroom now. I love your cardigan. I hope you are wearing it lots. I’m impressed by your colour matching front. #mmbc
To be honest, the colour matching was just random, I hoped the wool would do it’s job. I do wish that maybe I’d done one of the pockets with a different part of the wool as it looks rather dark, but it’s only a pocket. And yes, I’m wearing it, the wool is so soft. x
Your crochet flower card is sweet! #MMBC
Thank you Carol x
What a beautiful and thoughtful card.
Thank you, my friend loves it.
The cardigan is so pretty. I love the colour. I’d love to learn to crochet. I tried teaching myself with YouTube but I didn’t get very far. Think I need a human teacher! #MMBC
don’t give up. My 12 year old daughter picked it up quite quickly, although she’s not done more than a granny square yet, start small and easy. x
The card is so lovely. What a lucky friend to receive that. I like the idea of a fox too. Your cardigan is amazing. What a great talent to have.
