100 flowers to knit & crochet

By Lesley Stanfield, published in 2009
Available on Amazon

The crochet and knitting patterns are pretty much divided 50/50. The first half of the book is knitting and the second half is crochet. Terms are British English, and the crochet patterns are presented both in writing and with charts. However, sometimes the written instructions do not correspond with the charts, so be sure to check both and compare with the picture... The book contains a flower directory where all the flowers are sorted by color (knitted & crocheted together) for easy reference:

There is also patterns for a few bugs and butterflies, and some fruits and vegetables:

My favorite patterns are all the leaves:
