Free Quick Crochet Gift – Beginner Flower

Quick Crochet Gift - Beginner Flower, can be used as a brooch, on wreaths, on hair ties.  Your only limit is your imagination!

This quick 2 round flower is now my favorite quick make. You can add the center in yarn (included in the pattern) or add a button. I think these would even look amazing with a printed and sealed picture. Like a little flower frame!

I did a few with the little crochet circle middle but I also did one with a button.

I also tied one to an elastic to make a pretty (almost Poppy looking) hair flower.

I tried to do a little better with pictures this week but I can really tell when I look at these that my digital previews are so much better than my photo ones. It’s a work in progress and I am learning so it’s all good.

Ok on to the actual pattern

Tools needed for this pattern

  1. Crochet hook – I used a 5mm but gauge isn’t critical for this pattern so use your favorite size.
  2. Worsted weight yarn (you can use whatever yarn you want to use but bulky yarn will result in a larger flower and thinner yarn will result in a smaller flower)
  3. Yarn needle
  4. Pin backs if your want to turn these into brooches
  5. Hair elastic if you want to turn them into hair ties

Skills needed for this pattern

  1. Magic Loop or chain 3
  2. Double crochet (DC)
  3. Half Double Crochet (HDC)
  4. Slip Stitch (SS)

The Pattern

  1. Make a magic loop or chain 3
  2. If you chained 3 then do 12 DC into the 3rd chain from your hook (the first CH you made)
  3. If you made a magic loop
    1. Draw up a loop
    2. Chain 2
    3. 12 DC into Magic Loop
  4. SS to first DC
  5. CH 2
  6. 5 DC into each DC around
  7. SS to first DC
  8. CH 1 and cut yarn
  9. Pull yarn tail through the CH you just made to lock your stitch in place

Center of Flower

  1. Do step 1 to step 4 from the main flower then skip to step 8 and 9
  2. Sew the flower center to the middle of the flower
  3. All I did was use my crochet hook to pull my yarn tails through the flower and then I tied them in the back

Congratulations! You made a super simple flower that you can use for so many different things.

Here are some more pictures just because it was fun taking them! Also I used my free printable tags from my post yesterday to display these flowers. I love the way they turned out.
