Crochet ajour pattern | Free DIY guide

Ajour patterns are decorative crocheted lace patterns that give the crochet a special beauty and at the same time provide it with a lot of charm.

Crochet ajour pattern looks complicated at first glance, but it is not. There are only sturdy stitches and double crochets, which in combination with chain stitches create wonderful patterns. With our instructions, it's easy to crochet ajour flowers. We will show you step by step how you have to work each row so that the entire pattern is visible. We have also drawn a separate crochet for each row. This should make it easy to understand and rework our Ajour pattern.
