Crocheted Flowers are a great way to use up little bits of leftover yarn. They have lots of potential uses as an embellishment. They look great on shirts, bags or hair bows. Or, add a stem and make a bouquet!
Crochet Adorned: Reinvent Your Wardrobe with Crocheted Accents, Embellishments, and Trims has lots of great ideas.
And, they're sort of addictive.
I've begun including them as a little thank you gift in my Etsy shipments.
I worked out this little flower design, and wanted to share it with you.
Here's the pattern:
QuiltedCupcake Crochet Flowers
- With center color, Start with a magic ring. (FYI, link to Magic Ring video)
- Chain 2, make 16 HDC (half double crochets) into the ring and join.
- Chain 1, make 1 SC (single crochet) in each HDC from previous round. Join.
- Finish off center color, add in Outer color.
- Chain 1, make 1 SC in each SC from previous round. Join.
- *Chain 4, 1SC in next stitch* Repeat all the way around. Join and finish.
You can easily alter the look by increasing the number of SC rows you do in steps 3 and 5. Here's one with an extra row of SC in outer color:
Note: hook size doesn't really matter. I used an H and a J for these. It's another way to alter the look of the flower. If it starts to curl up, just add an extra SC or 2 as you do steps 3 and 5 to make it lie flat.
