Sat a maiden and her lover;
And the thoughts within her he
Yeamed, in silence, to discover.
Round them danced the sunbeams bright,
Green the grass-lawn stretched before them
While the apple blossoms white
Hung in rich profusion o’er them.” ~ Will Carleton
“Break open a cherry tree and there are no flowers, but the spring breeze brings forth myriad blossoms.” -Ikkyu Sojun
Both patterns are worked in the round and I use abbreviations according to US crochet language. I can provide the pattern in UK crochet language if preferred, please just contact me.
The finished cherry blossom is approximately 6cm (2.25”) in diameter and the finished apple blossom is approximately 5cm (2”) in diameter. The blossoms would make lovely hair-clips, brooches or decorations in the house.
US size E (3.5mm) crochet hook
DK acrylic yarn in white and lemon yellow for apple blossom, and in baby pink and rusty red for cherry blossom.
