If you would be happy spending all your days on a meadow full of flowers, but you don’t have the garden on your own, this post is for your. We all know that the world of crochet is full of fantastic floral motifs, but today’s hero won my heart! I’m talking about puff flower, of course!

This adorable tiny piece of crochet can be a decoration on its own, or end up attached to each other, creating fantastic, dense meadow of flowers. As you will see later in the post, you can transform it into a baby blanket, hot pad, or a brooch.

Aren’t these flowers the cutest? Let’s find out how to make them! As usual, below you can see sneak peaks of what’s to come in the round up section, and all of the pictures combined below are properly linked later in the article.

Puff Flowers Crochet Ideas

Cute and simple

Crochet puff flower uses only two techniques, which are circular center and puff stitch. There are many ways to combine them together once they are done in bigger amount, but that’s a whole different story. Two parts of this tiny crochet piece allow you to use one color for the center, and the other for puffy petals, but it’s all in your hands.

How do I start?

To make your own puff flower, you can use any type of yarn and corresponding hook you want. The finer yarn you will choose, the smaller your puff flower will be. Puff stitch looks best when made with at least medium weight yarn, because it needs the volume to form squishy puffs. Using thread or very fine yarn won’t work well in this project, so keep it in mind.

This is a great project to use up leftover scraps from your previous projects, because you need very little yarn to make one flower. Below you can see simplified process of making puff flower, as shown by Bella Coco in her video tutorial.

We start by making slip knot, four chain stitches and closing them with slip stitch to create a circle. This creates a great base for a round of single crochet stitches, and puff stitch that is used to create petals.

Pinks and Lilacs

Puff Stitch Flowers by Teresa (teresa_z_k)

Aren’t these puff flowers the sweetest? As you can see in the photos below, Teresa decided to use magic ring instead of joined chain stitch, which is totally fine, because it creates tight center without the gap. Additional puff in the middle looks very cute, especially if it’s made with differently colored yarn, so try it if you like it!

Puff Stitch Flowers by Mamlik

This amazing pastel blanket by Mamlik is not only beautiful to look at, but it’s also a great example of creating a successful color scheme. As you can see below, author chose six colors, and mixed up petals and centers – blue with white, pink with yellow, and so on. This way, when you combine all the flowers together, the palette stays cohesive and fun.

When you choose your colors, remember to keep the balance, because it’s very important. Below you can see two fantastic color schemes by Mamlik again, and both of them work amazingly well. Top one stays in the middle ground with colors and their vibrance, but bottom one uses bright pink as a feature element.

Cool!
