My crochet Chamomile & Sage pattern is available in my Etsy shop now. This is the last CrochetObjet pattern published for 2021 and I think it’s a nice one to share as the last blog post for this year. A lovely thankful way to say bye bye to the past year and to welcome the new one with a crochet flower collection. I thought you might find it helpful to know a little bit more about this pattern before you dive into the making.
This design is part of a collaboration between mYak and CrochetObjet knitting but also part of the botanical crochet patterns I created inspired by Japanese crochet fibre art. I’ve written about this here before. This Chamomile and Sage pattern was made so you can create your own wooly garden. Enjoy the playful variety of flowers in the pattern to create a brooch and decorate your shawls, sweaters, bag and gift wraps. Or as shown here, create a unique Chamomile & Sage Wreath of your own.
About the level
I created step by step instructions for you. Including quite a few close up pictures, to make it easier for you to follow. You should be familiar with the basic crochet stitches though. Please don’t choose it as your first crochet project.
Check out my YouTube channel for some crochet stitches support. I plan to upload a new video that shows how to crochet the first part of the flower, the pollen pad. I already have the video recorded, just need to edit and upload it. I’ll update you on my IG and FB accounts once uploaded. It was so rainy here in the past week which made me want to enjoy some cosy relaxing days. I’ve been very slow and lazy during the last few days and all I wanted to do is just sit on the couch, surrounded by my project bags, knit and crochet and watch knitting podcasts on YouTube. This is why my new video is not up yet.

Sizes and measurements
What Yarn to use
My original Chamomile & Sage pattern is made of mYak Tibetan Cloud yarn. Cols: Cherry Blossom, Callicarpa, Peony, Wild Daisy, Cladonia, Botton D’Oro. Baby Yak Silk in col: Savriti. Tibetan Cloud is a Light DK/ Sport Weight yarn which is similar to my 4 ply GrannyKit cotton. Feel free to use any yarn and colours of your choosing and enjoy playing, nothing will come out wrong, that’s for sure.The centre of the flowers uses about 3 meters of yarn. The Petals around 2.5 meters and approx. 1.5 m for the Sage leaf. Kit with the original yarns are now available in mYak online shop. Shop kit here.
What size of crochet hook to use
For my original flowers I used a 2.5 mm crochet hook. Try different yarns and hook sizes. Checkout the different results you get. The beauty of this pattern is that it’s made with a smaller hook than the yarn calls for.••
