One of the biggest joys of my life is crocheting. Equally fun is finding different patterns to create and share with my friends and family. One of the most popular forms of crocheting is amigurumi where you create stuffed animals, dolls, toys, food, and even plants. I’m a huge fan of amigurumi and have several books filled with adorable patterns. But, I’m always on the search and I found a pattern book that features all things garden related and I love it! Enter the Kawaii Crochet Garden.
Inside the Kawaii Crochet Garden book, you will find 40 super cute amigurumi patterns for plants, garden bugs and more. The table of content features patterns divided by color!
Flowers come in a variety of colors that are healing to the soul. They brighten, they cheer, and they can influence and lift our mood for the better. I love all the colorful patterns that can fill our home year-round. No digging, no watering and no weeding, just attractive crocheted flowers. Aside from flowers, you can crochet a few bugs – bees and ladybugs are always a delight to see in our gardens.

String of Pearls
Each pattern is put in one of three skill levels, beginner, easy, and intermediate using a cute seed face emoji. The onset of the book shares what tools and material you will need to make the included projects. Then they tap into color theory and how to use different hues for the most attractive results. Then they dive right into creating projects by color.
All the patterns are adorable with the sweetest little faces. Each crochet pattern features full-color images and easy-to-follow written instructions. Plus, you might find a quirky little point about the pattern you are crocheting or a craft tip to make life easier. All the plants are featured either as a bulb or in colorful vases. The back of the book offers techniques, stitches, and how to put your pieces together neatly.
Did you know there is a secret language to flowers? For instance, daisies mean innocent! I personally love Forget-Me-Nots, Lily of the Valley and the Pansies not for their meaning, but because I just love their beauty. If you don’t have time to grow a garden, then get your supplies and enjoy crocheting your own homemade floral park.
