In Bloom Part 3 Video Tutorial

We turned our  In Bloom flower into a square last week, and this week we are making it into a flower again. Time for more flower petals in part 3!  In Bloom is a crochet along in which we make a cushion designed by Johanna Lindahl from Mijo Crochet in collaboration with FavoritGarner.

Resources

Yarn

The yarn that I’m using is Scheepjes Catona yarn which is a 100% mercerized cotton, sport weight yarn. These are the colors I have selected for my In Bloom, all are Scheepjes Catona 50g balls. Here are the yarn amounts that you will need to make a complete cushion:

  • Color 1 – 1 x 246 : Icy Pink
  • Color 2 – 1 x 240 : Amethyst
  • Color 3 – 1 x 394 : Shadow Purple
  • Color 4 – 4 x 130 : Old Lace
  • Color 5 – 1 x 173 : Bluebell
  • Color 6 – 1 x 247 : Blue Bird
  • Color 7 – 1 x 164 : Light Navy

Scheepjes Catona is available in 109 colors in balls of 10g (NEW!), 25g balls, 50g balls and for limited colors also in 100g balls.

I am following the color order as suggested by Johanna, but to make life easier for you, here is the order of my colors per round. I used a 3.5mm hook for all the rows in Part 3.

  • Petals Row 1 – 246 : Icy Pink
  • Petals Row 2 – 240 : Amethyst
  • Petals Row 3 – 246 : Icy Pink
  • Petals Row 4 – 394 : Shadow Purple
  • Round 24 – 394 : Shadow Purple
  • Round 25 – 394 : Shadow Purple
  • Round 26 – 240 : Amethyst
  • Round 27 – 246 : Icy Pink

Scheepjes Catona is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/International)Love Crochet (US), Knotty House (CA) or your local Scheepjes Stockist. Thank you for supporting my work by buying your yarn through the links on my blog. ❤

Video Tutorial

In part 3 of In Bloom we are making flower petals along the edges and on corners of the square we made last week. With this video tutorial I show you step-by-step how to make it.  I worked all rounds with a 3.5mm hook for this part.


One thing you will notice is that part 3 contains a lot of short rows, and inevitable this means a lot of yarn tails. Take your time to work away all those tails, there are a lot of them, but taking the time now will pay off next week because then we will connect the flower petals to our work and it’s going to be near impossible to work away the tails when you have your petals connected.

Next week I will release the video for part 4 of In Bloom. If you are making this pattern along with me, I would love to see your work. Feel free to share your work on my Facebook page, or tag me in one of your posts on Instagram.

With love,

Esther

  1. It looks so gorgeous! But I kinda know myself and I know I’ll never finish such a huge project… Maybe some day. Let’s keep on dreaming…
    I always love your explanations of patterns, stitches and how you make projects or CAL’s your own! Thank you for sharing.
