I designed these creatures (and flower) in memory of a friend (Kath – Dread Herring).
You will need a 1.5 mm hook and 4 ply wool. The royal bluebell pattern is written in American crochet notation. The others are depicted with diagrams.
Purple swamp hen
With white wool crochet 6 sc into a magic ring. Then change to purple/blue wool. Attach the wool to one of the 6 white sc. Chain 4 (one is a turning chain). Now, working back along the chain, sc, hdc, dc. You have now formed a petal. Now slip stitch into the next sc and repeat 4 more times so that you have 5 petals in total. Slip stitch into the first petal.
Attach green wool between two petals. Chain for a bit and then sc back along the chain.
Weave in ends.
