Crochet Flower Pattern (Advanced: Ridged Version)

Ridged Crochet Flower Pattern

Before I dive right into the pattern, you may have noticed JJCrochet and this blog have gotten a facelift!  No more blue and black borders – the pink and cream/ tan/ gray theme is in charge of the show.  I was getting tired of the old layout and wanted a site that was better from a design perspective, now that I spend a good majority of my time (real job) online.  I never was much of a pink girl, but it’ll do.

Okay – so onto the pattern. I was crocheting a hat yesterday when I wanted to add a flower, but not a typical flower.  I’ve made designs in the past and figured it was time I chronicled the unique style of crocheting ONTO of the stitches.  Yes, you heard correctly – this flower is worked all in one piece.  The third round that gives the raised, 3-D circle in the center is made by working on the sides of the stitches of Round 1.

If it sounds confusing, don’t worry – I’ve made a video showing what to do:

The crochet video is also a good introduction of how to make this style of flower and is super easy and simple enough for someone who know a few stitches.  I’ve gotten feedback from other videos I’ve made that I crochet a bit too fast (guilty), so I tried to slow it down.  Watching it back, it still might be too quick, but I tried to crochet as slowly as I could without poking myself in the eyes.  {If you listen closely, I sigh twice in the video during my painfully slow crochet session.}

So here’s the pattern for the flower.  Either follow it the whole way through if you’re an adventurous, advanced crocheter, or stop after Round 2.  Whichever way you choose to go, you’ll still end up with a cute little flower.

Materials

Size J crochet hook (or whatever sized project you’re working on)

Worsted weight yarn (I used my go-to favorite, Vanna’s Choice)

Instructions

Chain 3.  Join with sl st to first chain to form ring.

Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as first dc), dc into loop.  *Ch 3, 2 dc into loop*.  Repeat around until you have 10 dc and five, ch-3 loops. Join with sl st into first ch-3 loop of round.

Round 2: Ch 1 (counts as first sc).  Work 5 dc, 1 sc into ch-3 loop.  (Skip 2 dc from previous round),  Work *1 sc, 5 dc, 1 sc into ch-3 loop*.  Repeat around to make 5 patterns.  Join with sl st to first sc.

Congrats, you’ve made a flower!  If you’d like to work the ridge at the center of the flower, continue on.  If not, Fasten Off.

    I just tried your flower with the ridge. The directions were very clear and concise. Worked great! I love it! I’m going to attach it to the side of a hat I am making for one of my friends. Thanks for the post.
