How do I make crochet flowers?

Most of the projects require basic stitches only, such as double crochet, single crochet and chain stitch. There are many different crochet patterns in the theme, but you can roughly divide it into two types:

Flat Flower Applique

This is the easiest type of crochet flowers, because it’s worked in the round and doesn’t require much skills. All you need to know is how to work in rounds and have basic crochet stitches under your belt. Such flowers can be then sewn onto garments and accessories, or used to create a bunting.

3D Flowers

Three-dimensional flowers are much more interesting, because they aim to imitate real flowers. Crocheted petals are often reinforced with wire, or made with lots of elements, but the finished project is worth the time and effort. Wired stem creates a solid base for such decoration, which can be ten organized into bouquets, or put into a vase.

Which crochet flower pattern to choose?

First of all, assess your crocheting skills, but don’t be too afraid to try more ambitious projects. Crochet flowers require little amounts of yarn and work up quite fast, so you won’t loose much time even if you fail. It’s best to start with easy crochet flower pattern (free pattern – if possible) and make a small crochet flower. Beginner projects often require bigger crochet hook and heavier yarn weight, so it’s easier to see what you’re doing.

Every kind of yarn has different qualities, so be sure to know what’s what before you start. Learn more about types of yarn in my Yarn 101 Series!

You can find patterns for all your favorite flowers in different sizes, such as crochet rose patterns, crochet tulips, crochet poppy, flower bunting, or puff flowers. Some of the patterns feature crochet flowers and leaves, which makes them look even more lifelike. Many designers decide to add simple crochet flowers to crochet headbands, because they instantly elevate them to the next level!
