Crochet chains
Whilst the crochet element of Cyrus may seem daunting, the floral flowers are fairly simple to make, even for beginners. To make a chain:
Make a slip knot on the length of the hook.
Pass hook under the yarn (known as yarn over hook), catch yarn in the nook of the hook and pull the yarn through the slip knot and onto the length of the hook. This makes the first chain.
Repeat for as many chains as you need. See illustration for double crochet.

Cyrus: 86cm x 130cm
