CROCHET PATTERNS (Pattern #27 Maybush Blossom) – 365 Flowers Bouquet Project

Introduction

365 Flower Bouquet Project – PATTERN DIRECTORY,  the landing page of my blog contains links to all the flower crochet patterns I've designed so far.

If you are familiar with Ravelry and you’d like to have a go at my patterns, join us at 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet on Ravelry.

The Maybush (Spiraea cantoniensis 'Lanceata') is a deciduous or semi-deciduous shrub growing in arches towards the ground. Its white, double flowers are quite spectacular giving a striking display to any common hedge.

The name is quite confusing, because the shrub flowers in September and October in the southern hemisphere. Luckily, there is an explanation for that…the shrub flowers in May in the northern hemisphere :-)…
