Free Flower Crochet Pattern

I saw this flower on Pinterest yesterday and fell in love. Either that or I'm just so sick of making owl hats that I jumped at the opportunity to use my hands to create something different. Regardless, I'm pleased with how this flower came out. I'm not sure it fits into the categories of rosette or daisy... maybe a chrysanthemum (you will not believe this... I spelled that right the first time!)?  Anyways, I'm still trying to put off making owl hats for just a few more minutes so I decided to post about it and let you know exactly how I made mine.

Materials:
  • G hook (next time, I think I'd use a bigger hook, perhaps an H or J)
  • Small amount of cotton worsted weight yarn (used Lily Sugar 'n' Cream in hot pink)

The basic pattern for this flower came from the Crochet Geek website. The linked post even includes a video tutorial. I wanted a bigger flower and knew the shape of petal I wanted, so here's what I went with. 

Ch 51.

Row 1: SC in the second ch from hook. *ch 2, skip 1, SC* around. SC in the last ch. 
Row 2: *Ch 2, 5 DC, ch 2, sl st* in the first chain loop and in each chain loop until you reach the end. Leave a long tail.

You should have been creating a long spiral of petals. Once you're finished, arrange your spiral into a flower and secure with the tail. After you secure the back, attach a pin or an alligator clip and add a pop of color to your winter wardrobe!

Hi Lauren! I've been crocheting since I was 9 (40+ years!) and I love finding new things to crochet!

I'm also a 1st Cent. Christian and live north of Boston, MA. I was baptized in 1989 and I've been through a lot of ups and downs, but I'm still an "over-comer".

It's nice to know that we share our love of Christ as our savior and our love of crafts as well! Your girls are beautiful!
