I have made of few heart garlands before based on this idea where it is crocheted in one piece, giving you an instantly strung garland ready to hand up. With the idea of something summery in mind I attempted to make a pattern for this floral garland.  I think it worked well because I used a nice chunky yarn, giving it a bit of structure and adding to the size - you could easily use 2 or 3 strands of yarn if you didn't have any chunky to hand.

I ironed it on completion to help the flowers to lie flat.  I have written up a pattern if you are interested in giving one a go:-

In one piece? No weaving in ends? Now that is great!
