Choose from 4 stunning colourways designed to honour the important women in our lives. Join the Crochet-a-long from July with crocheters from all over the world.
Here's what the designer, Emma, says about the CAL:
Floralia was a festival in ancient Roman to honor the goddess Flora, held in April. The festival included Ludi Florae, the “Games of Flora” which lasted for six days. The celebrations included nude dancing, gladiator contests, theatrical performances and circus events. The crowds were pelted with vetches, beans, and lupins, (symbols of fertility). Deer and hares also symbols of fertility, were let loose in honor of the goddess as protector of gardens and fields. They wore colorful garments during the festivities instead of the customary white robes.
In honor of all women I designed Floralia with my maternal mother and grandmothers in mind. From generation to generation they past down their knowledge, wisdom and strength to the next, hoping the next generation would flourish and prosper. We do our best to keep those family traditions alive while evolving and adapting them to the new modern ways of life.
Patterns will be available to download from the Pippin Poppycock website along with a full set of video tutorials to provide extra support to those taking part in the CAL. The first part of the pattern will be published on 1st July.
This yarn pack contains all the yarn needed to make the Floralia blanket, 15 balls of Stylecraft Special DK.
