Easy Peasy Flower Pattern & Tutorial

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my very first blog post. I am equal parts nervous and excited about this. Crochet has become such an integral part of my life that this blog just felt like a logical next step. And all this is happening because of the amazing community of crafters on Instagram.

Ok, so about these flowers.

This is such an easy pattern to make. 3 rounds and you are done!

So lets start.

The tutorial on how to customise these and join them as you go can be found here.

The tutorial to turn these in squares can be found here

Any yarn and a hook corresponding to the yarn size (I have used 10ply cotton yarn and a 5mm hook for the flowers here)

A darning needle

US Abbreviations

Pattern & Tutorial

Round 1

Make a slip knot. Ch 4 and sl st in the last chain from the hook to form a circle. Ch 3 (counts as first dc) and then make 13 dcs in the circle. Join with a sl st in the 3rd ch of the first ch 3. Break yarn and weave in the ends. (Total – 14dcs)

Round 1

Round 1

Round 2

Sl st in any one of the dcs from the previous round. Ch 4, sk 1 dc and sc in top of the next dc. (ch 3, sk 1 dc, sc in top of next dc) 5 times. Ch 3, sk 1 dc and then sl st in the 1st ch of the first 4 ch’s made. Now you can add another colour here or continue with the same yarn. (Total – 7 3ch-sp)

Round 2

Round 3

In the first ch 3 sp, make 1 hdc, 1 dc, 2 tr , 1 dc, 1 hdc and then make a sl st in the same ch sp. Make (1hdc, 1dc, 2tr, 1dc, 1hdc, sl st) in the next 6 ch 3 spaces from the previous round. Sl st in the first hdc, break yarn and weave in the ends. (Total – 7 petals)

This is my first written pattern so if you find any mistakes or if something doesn’t make sense then please do ask and I’ll be more than happy to help.

And, thank you so much for stopping by.

Yay I’m so excited, I found this easy to understand unlike many patterns that confuse me completely. I love the styling on your post too. Beautiful.

  6. I appreciate your flowers and it seems very nice, I found a similar pattern and I thought that is such a beautiful craft, my back room is all lighter shades and a really calm feeling whilst I have been doing a small amount of work in there. I thought they look beautiful and it is nice for me to see yours different and a really nice effect.

  10. LOVE this flower pattern. Can’t wait to get yarn to crochet some for a scarf. Is it alright to print this out for my own use? Subscribed to your blog also:-)

  11. Thank you so much for this very easy to follow tutorial! I have been crocheting all my life but never learned how to make flowers. I just found your pattern yesterday and have already made 6 flowers! Already in a flow like I’ve been making them for years! The last one I just finished minutes ago, I tried a variation on the 7 petal. I decreased the tr by 1. It makes for slightly pointy petals. I plan to put the flowers onto crocheted slippers but haven’t quite figured out how to attach them.. Do you have any tips? Thanx again!

    • Yes I just made my first flower and tried to make the rest of the square and found out you need 8 petals for the square. What is going on here?
