Orchidea all'uncinetto | How to crochet an orchid




Buongiorno a tutti! Oggi vi propongo un nuovo progetto! Una deliziosa orchidea all'uncinetto :D Io le considero, senza dubbio, tra i fiori più belli e affascinanti... l'unico inconveniente è che sono abbastanza difficili da curare (tutte quelle che ho avuto sono morte stecchite nel giro di poche settimane :( )

Hi! Today I want to show you a new project: A crocheted orchid! I found theese flower beautiful, but I've never been able to keep them alive :( This is the reason why I decided to crochet them :D 



Sono molto soddisfatta del risultato finale e spero che piacciano anche a voi! Lo schema è abbastanza semplice, di seguito trovate due video in cui vi spiego come realizzarne una tutta vostra :)
Spero che sia tutto chiaro, lasciate un commento per farmi sapere che cosa ne pensate e per restare aggiornati su tutti i miei lavori, seguite la mia pagina facebook : MaryJ Handmade

I'm really satisfied with the end result, and I hope you like it too! The pattern is quite easy to follow. Below you can find 2 videos where I show you how to crochet the orchid :) I hope that everything is clear and understandable. Please, let me know what you think about it, leaving a comment!
