BotaniCAL roundup

This extended 6-week CAL was a BotaniCAL including all my patterns that fit the botanic theme (flowers, plants, fruits etc):

PlanetJune BotaniCAL crochet-along patterns

For October, the Ravelry group have decided to have two CALs: the main Accessory-Along, and a bonus Halloween CAL. (If you’d like to take part in one – or both! – see the end of this post for more details.)

Okay, now back to the BotaniCAL roundup! Check out all the Posy Blossoms projects – I created this pattern (and the Crocheted Embellishments tutorial) with the hope that people would use the blossoms to embellish all sorts of things, and that’s exactly what’s happened: we have lampshades, slippers, baby dresses, afghans, paperweights, pacifier clips, toys, hair and jewellery accessories, and more…


(For speed, I just give credit with participants’ Ravelry usernames.)

Aren’t they all lovely? I hope this roundup will inspire you to try a little crocheted embellishing too – one tiny flower only takes minutes to make and, as you can see, adds fun or style to all kinds of things…

    I am so glad the botanical CAL happened this fall because participating got me started making my bobble trees! I have completed three – and each one is better than the last! It is a great pattern for practicing crochet. And the trees are beautiful. I totally love them.

    I am creating a fiber forest for my elves to play in this winter and the bobble trees will be front and center!

  2. Great roundup! I have yet to make some of those acorns!
