I have been busy crocheting lots of little flowers for a craft project. They are very simple to make, so I thought I would pop the pattern on here.

They only use a very small amount of yarn so are great for using up those little left overs from other projects.

Most of the ones in the pictures here were made with cheap acrylic yarn but I have also used cotton, wool blends and more exotic yarns too.

I make mine with two colours of yarn, but you can of course make single colour versions too.

Little Crochet Flowers

You Need:

  • small amounts of Double Knitting or Light worstead weight yarn
  • 3.5mm crochet hook (US size E)

You can use thinner or thicker yarn, just use a thinner or thicker hook too – experiment to find a combo you like 🙂
I have made tiny ones with no 10 crochet cotton and a 1.5mm hook

What to do – British version:

Using the colour you want for the middle:

Chain 6 and join into a ring with a slip stitch

Round 1 – Chain 1 then double crochet 10 stitches into the ring, slip stitch into the first stitch to end

Fasten off and join the petal colour to any outside stitch

Round 2 – [5 treble crochet in the next stitch, Slip stitch in the next stitch] Repeat all the way around so you have 5 petals

Fasten off

 

What to do – American version:

Using the color you want for the middle:

Chain 6 and join in to a ring with a slip stitch

Round 1 – Chain 1 then single crochet 10 stitches into the ring, slip stitch into the first stitch to end

Fasten off and join the petal color to any outside stitch

Round 2 – [5 double crochet in the next stitch, Slip stitch in the next stitch] Repeat all the way around so you have 5 petals

Fasten off

You can also easily make a 6 petaled variation by putting 12 stitches in to the middle ring (instead of 10), then making each petal from 4 trebles (instead of 5).

Use your little flowers as embellishments for crocheted or knitted items like bags, pillows or hats. Add them to birthday cards or scrapbooks. Or how about turning them into beautiful, lightweight jewelry such as earrings?

I would love to hear how you have used your little crocheted flowers in your crafting projects.
