Flower Basket Wrap
This shawl is like a beautiful basket of summer flowers gathered from the garden to encourage the plants to flower again. Best of all, these flowers will last you through the colder seasons bringing a cheery touch to your wardrobe and warmth to your shoulders.
The stitches and simple shaping of the jacket make this an interesting, yet simple crocheted garment and the flowers are an excellent portable project to carry with you on the go. This make offers the chance for stash-busting to use small quantities of your favourite leftover yarn scraps in the floral section to turn your jacket into an album of your favourite craft memories. The pattern includes links to video tutorials for each of the flowers.
