One of the oldest cultivated flowers in the world, the Carnation has been used in art, interior design, perfumes and medicines. Associated with a wealth of meanings, the main symbolism behind the carnation is devotion, love, distinction and fascination. Popular in China as a wedding flower, the birth bloom of January, and the official flower for your first wedding anniversary, the carnation is a beautiful gift for a variety of occasions and our crochet version will stay bright and beautiful, whatever the weather.
