Now the Hydrangea flowers are easier to knit and available in a single pattern! These flowers are so beautiful that you will want to make dozens and decorate not only bags, but garments, sweaters, shoes. . . and put on a pretty frock and go straight away to a garden party to drink tea, eat small sandwiches, and, perhaps, have a mint julep.
One of the things that make hydrangeas so beautiful is the way their petals change color as they are touched by the sun: a pale creamy petal turns pale blue and then dark blue as the days go by. The designer sought, with the two colorways included in this pattern (a combination of blues and a combination of pale pinks to pale greens), to represent the variation in petal color and size we find in our gardens.
