Crochet Wedding Boutonniere Flower, Leaf Motif

Crochet Wedding Boutonniere Flower, Leaf Motif

I love making small ornaments for embellishment and here is my new collection of Crochet Wedding Boutonniere. They are pretty simple and quick to make. You can use stash yarns or lace threads of various colors to crochet, the finished size depends on what kind of yarn or lace thread you used.

General Direction:

Using the Motif –

Unlike most crochet patterns, this pattern has no gauge, no thread requirement and no hook sizes.

That’s because you can vary the size and appearance of each motif to fit the needs of your project. If the motif is for a bedspread, you could choose size 5 cotton thread and an appropriate hook, the same motif could be made with size 10 cotton thread and a similar hook for a doily.

When choosing the thread and hook for your project experiment with a variety of threads to achieve the appearance and texture that pleases you.
