Crochet Embellishments

Here are some of the crochet embellishments I created from the eBook –

Ruffled Blossom (page 11)

Fancy Flora (page 13)

Royal Rose (page 18)

Cone Flower (page 19)

Pansy (page 26)

The 96-page eBook has written instructions for crocheting flowers, leaves, motifs & shapes, borders, bands (with a decorative edge on the top and bottom), braids and cords, tassels, bead and button covers, curlicues and fringes.

I am always looking for new ways to embellish my projects – and learning new techniques to be able to design my own. The more you crochet, the more you learn.  I found this eBook extremely helpful and I am happy to have it – both to make quick embellishments to ‘pretty’ up my hats and because it taught me what loops to work in to create pretty flowers of my own.

“Pretty Up” My Hats:

The written instructions are clear and easy to follow and the eBook is filled with colour photographs.

There is a something for everyone in this book – a great ‘go to’ resource to have in your collection!

Which is why I am thrilled to be able to offer you a chance to win a eBook copy of this book for yourself!

  1. The Pansy flower looks great on your hat. I love the flower on the hat because of its simplicity and the flower brings the hat to life.

  2. I absolutely love the crochet embellishments created by Jean! They are so unique and creative, adding a lovely touch to any crochet project. I especially adore the delicate flowers and the adorable little animals – they’re just too cute! Jean’s attention to detail is truly impressive, and it’s clear that she has a real passion for her craft. As a fellow crochet enthusiast, I’m definitely feeling inspired to try my hand at some embellishments of my own.

  3. Embellishments really enhance any crochet projects! Gives it a little pizzazz!
