This design is dedicated to the sweetness of lavender. You can make plenty of little bonbons and pop them anywhere you like. And what is more, I hope that these three designs will spark your inspiration to try andwork with different stitches and make your own little lavender bonbon designs! You will find two ‘regular’crochet and one Tunisian crochet designs in this bundle. The bonbons are constructed in two different ways. While you make them, you will quickly see that the underlying principle is always the same, so hopefully, they will give you the confidence to play around.

About the Designer: Lilinette Crochet
Lili, the designer behind Lilinette Crochet, was born and raised in the north of the Netherlands. She spent her school years in a public Waldorf school where she learned about art, architecture, wood, metals, and working with her hands, head, and heart. This is also where she learned to work with yarn. In school she was fortunate enough to learn spinning, knitting, crocheting, mending, embroidery, weaving, and sewing.
After many years of working on and off with yarns, she started as an indie crochet designer in December 2017. Lili likes to work with diversity, in terms of techniques, yarns and colors. She is also passionate about slow fashion and finding ways to reuse and recycle materials. Many of her yarns come from thrift stores and other second hand sources. Colorful designs are what she’s known for.
