3 Easy Crocheted Flowers

I love seeing flowers outside in the spring and summer. They attract beautiful butterflies, buzzing bumble bees, wee honey bees, and if I’m lucky a humming bird or two! However their time ends and scent fades over the course of the season. While I know they’ll be back the next year I wistfully imagine flowers that never fade…

Which is why I’ve put together 3 crocheted flower patterns that you can make any time of the year and will never fade away!

What can you make with them?

Motifs and embellishments are the first thing to think of with crocheted flowers. However, the puff flower pattern can be connected to be turned into a shawl, scarf, blanket, basket, bag, or whatever else you can dream up!

Individually, they can be used as decore, ornaments for a spring tree, put into baskets and jars, or made as cat toys. I think these are especially useful for cottagecore or faecore decorations.

Crochet Therapy

All of these flowers are easy to make and don’t require that much yarn. That makes them wonderful to use for quick calming projects for when stress or anxiety hits.

Supplies

  • Worsted weight yarn
    • You can use any color you like
  • 4.5 mm hook
    • You can change the hook to get different sizes
  • Snips
  • Yarn needle

Abbriviations

  • Mc = Magic circle
  • Ch = Chain
  • Sc = Single Crochet
  • Yo = Yarn over
  • slst = slst
  • St = Stitch
  • Hdc = Half Double crochet
  • Dc =Double crochet
  • Pull up a loop = insert hook into st, yo, pull the loop through
  • Puff st = Yo, pull up a loop, 4 times, yo, pull through all the sts,

The Puff Stitch Flower

This crocheted flower definitely has the typical flower shape going on. Based off of the puff stitch, they can be sewn together to make a squishy, flowery fabric for just about anything you want.

Foundation row. Make 6 sc in a Mc, pull the circle closed, slst to the first st.

Row 1. *Ch 2, Puff st (Yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through all 9 loops, slst),

ch 2, slst into the next st,* repeat from *-* 5 more times.

Connect the last ch 2 to the base of the flower with a slst.

Tie off, pull the yarn tail through to the back, and tie the tails together at the back, and snip off the ends.

The Bullion Flower

This flower is made using the cone variation of the crochet bullion stitch. Bullion flowers are great to use as motifs and for embellishments on hats, blankets, scarves or amigurumi.

Foundation row. Make 12 sc in a Mc, pull the circle closed, slst to the first st.

Row 1. Ch 3, *Yo 10 times loosely, insert hook into the sc, Yo once and gently pull through all of the loops on the hook, ch 1,* repeat from *-* in each of the 12 sts, slst to the top of the first st.

Try to taper the loops so that they’re bigger at the top of the stitch and smaller at the bottom. You might need to practice a few times to get it right.

Tie off, pull the yarn tail through to the back, and tie the tails together at the back, and snip off the ends.

Simple Flower

Last but certainly not least, I have a simple 5 petal flower. These are very pretty with a different colored center, but you can do it all in one color as well.

Foundation row. Make 6 sc in a Mc, pull the circle closed, slst to the first st.

Row 1. Ch 1, sc, *hdc, dc, dc, hdc all in the same st, sc in the next st,* repeat from *-* in each st,

when you come to the last 2 sts, skip 1 st, and work into the last sc, instead of the last sc, work a slst into the first sc to join the round.

Tie off, weave the end to the back, and secure the 2 ends with a knot. Trim the excess.

Experiment!

I suggest making a bunch of centers and then you can finish them up with a different color for the petals. Be sure to try lots of color combinations with these flowers!

You can make two of the simple flowers and sew them together with a bit of stuffing inside if you want to turn it into a more 3d shape.

This is how you can sew the puff flowers together make a flowery fabric. Use a yarn needle to sew the flowers together, you will be working in the chains stitches at the back of the flower as shown.

Go through each stitch twice to make sure it’s secure, I suggest doing them in batches so that you can sew a bunch together at once. You can use a regular needle and thread if you prefer.

I’m sure there’s much more that you can do with these flowers than I can show in this post so be sure to try some different things and experiment with these lovely little flowers.
