My memories as a child are of sitting on the grass making daisy chains, or of holding a
buttercup under someone else’s chin and asking “do you like butter”, and looking to see if there was a yellow reflection under their chin.

The dog rose to me is also symbolic of historic England, the shape is that of a Tudor Rose.

And finally the geranium reminds me of my Nana who taught me to crochet.

Bloomin’ Blanket has had a refresh.
I have rewritten the pattern with a few minor changes to all of the squares to improve the final shape and size of each.

I have also made full video tutorials. Each of the videos is approx. 30 to 40 minutes long and there are a total of 14 videos.
As mentioned above you will need the pdf to use alongside the videos, especially to check your stitch counts.
Videos can only be  viewed in your members’ dashboard – My Crochet Collection, so do make sure you are signed in when you purchase.

The Geranium holds the meaning of coming together, having a sense of togetherness, of mind body and spirit.

Symbolising co-operation and camaraderie, expansion of ideas, aligning to greater purpose and focusing on the greater good for the whole.

 

 

The Daisy holds the meaning of bubbling over with happiness, having a positive outlook and celebrating and appreciating the simple things. The Daisy has long been used to know the feelings of another, as one asks he loves me he loves me not until all the petals are gone.

 

The Dog Rose is a symbol of being welcome and hospitable.

It is also a symbol of being prolific, blooming over and over again, it brings a special meaning and reminder of
finding new ways to express yourself.

 

The Buttercup symbolises an everlasting embrace of love and commitment and to hold something close to your heart, perhaps a meaningful secret, or a romantic rendezvous.

The Central square is the Summer Bloom Mandala.

 

And finally the Bloomin Plain Square, which has a petal like centre.
