Crochet Garland Commission


I recently had a commission, from a lovely friend, to make a crochet garland for her bedroom.

Now she has received it and is happy with it I can finally reveal what it looks like! It’s taken a while for me to do and I’ve been looking forward to sharing it.

Full Length Garland, by Shirley Rainbow

I made the garland using Rico Essentials Cotton DK, in Plum, Violet, Natural, Sage and Bluegreen. Working with some of these colours was a little out of my comfort zone and gave me a few challenges, as I went through my usual creative cycle ( this is okay, this is not okay, this is really rubbish, I am really rubbish, oh this isn’t so bad after all, actually this is quite good…. !!!) I am now pleased with the result and I may work with purple and lilac again one day!

The patterns I used are as follows:

And the small flower? I made that pattern myself and I’ll be sharing it here soon.

  1. It is super lovely! And the colors are SO me! XD I’ll try to make one myself, but if it doesn’t come out right, I know where to get one ❤
