A crochet pattern book for a "crochet-along" style blanket featuring an assortment of different floral and butterfly motifs. Inspired by English Artists, Country Garden's and London's Garden squares. Comprehensive instructions and step-by-step images make this an ideal project for expanding your crochet skills and creating a stunning blanket along the way.
The patterns are grouped together and laid out in bite-sized pieces with the techniques getting progressively harder, so crocheters can choose to work through the project at their own pace within their own timescale.
"The final catalyst for my design inspiration for this blanket was the work of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant of the Bloomsbury Group.
Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant tended to use a most appealing colour palette in their still life paintings, often using soft greens, saffron yellows, slightly murky blues and teals combined with nude camel shades, salmon pinks and hints of darker richer tones.
Vanessa was particularly keen on painting flowers. Over her lifetime she created many wonderful still life flower paintings, which featured flowers cute from her garden, ceramics and sumptuous fabrics- the ideal objects for me to use as design elements within this project."
Bonus: A free yarn substitution guide can be downloaded from the Janie Crow website to use in conjunction with this pattern book to create an alternative version of the Bohemian Blooms project called Bloomsbury Gardens.

Welcome to the world of Janie Crow!
My Great Grandmother, Alice, simply had a love of yarn. As a child I remember watching her arrange crochet granny squares on her lap and making decisions about which colour combinations went together. Her speedy hook and agile fingers fascinated me, but it wasn't until much later on in my life's journey that I also found myself enthralled by, and addicted to, the art of crochet. I guess I finally got to grips with the technicalities of crochet around 15 years ago and over the last decade I have felt confident enough to design projects aimed at the home crafter.
I would love to see crochet recognised as a platform for creativity and so I have made it my mission to seek out pathways that will enable me to reach a wide audience to whom I can demonstrate the versatility and integrity of the craft. I try to highlight the differences between 'home made' and 'hand made' and challenge the often derogatory and ageist image of those (mostly women) who choose to design and craft with yarn. I hope that by doing so I am validating the skills of so many others.
