Week Twenty One Of The Country Garden Crochet Along

week twenty one of the country garden crochet along blog image

It’s Week 21 of the Country Garden crochet along and this week we’re making our crocodile flower square which we will be attaching between our arrow and colourwork arrow panels

If you would like the ad free printable version, it is available either as part of my Lifetime Pattern Pass, or you can purchase it on its own for just £5 from Ravelry

This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation are:

  • slst (slip stitch)
  • sc (single crochet) = Double Crochet
  • dc (double crochet) = Treble Crochet

If you would like to follow my colour scheme in either Paintbox Cotton Aran or Caron Simply Soft, you can find my colours here
