How to get the Pattern for the Crochet Garland
Handmade Crochet Garland Details
This beautiful garland features a cheerful mix of crochet flower motifs in different colors. Strung them together on a crochet chain and it’s an easy way to add a handmade touch to any room.
I used a similar crochet motif to make my 15 minute tassel stars and always wanted to create a lovely garland with the flower motifs. I choose some colors from my stash of worsted weight (aran) cotton yarn and made 9 flowers which I joined together. Easy peasy!
It is a simple pattern using basic stitches. You will use a double crochet cluster stitch in round 2, and it is explained in the pattern.

Materials for a Crochet Garland
This easy crochet garland is a great way for to use up yarn scraps. You can use any yarn weight and matching crochet hook size, but be aware the size of the crochet flowers will change. If you use a lighter weight yarn, your garland will be smaller.
I used a worsted weight yarn in cotton fiber. You’ll also need a 4.50 mm crochet hook and a yarn needle to weave in those loose ends.
Cotton yarns are best for their durability and vibrant color options, but acrylic yarn would also work well.

How to Care for your Crochet Garland
To keep your precious crochet flower garland looking its best year after year, a little TLC goes a long way. Store your garland in a cool, dry place, preferably in a cloth bag to prevent moisture and dust buildup.
If it needs freshening up, a gentle hand wash with mild detergent will do the trick. Lay flat to dry and avoid direct sunlight to maintain those vibrant colors.
