Crochet Flower Pattern

Having a go-to crochet flower pattern should be every crocheter’s goal. This crochet flower isn’t fancy, but it works up quickly and is great for adding detail to a project.

Crochet Flower Pattern

It’s a great flower for beginner to learn – I’ve even written out the crochet abbreviations and taken pictures along the way so you know exactly what to do. For the more experienced crocheter, this is a good “base flower” that you can add more petals to (why stop at 5?) or a second layer for added volume.

Round 2: Chain 3 + 1 (counts as chain-3 space plus 1 single crochet). Skip 1 stitch, single crochet in next stitch. *Chain 3, skip 1 stitch. Single crochet in next stitch.* Repeat instructions from * to * around two more times. Chain 3, skip next stitch. Single crochet into first chain-3 space to join Round 2. (5, chain-3 spaces).

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.}

Crochet Flower Pattern

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)

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.

Crochet Flower/ Star Pattern

It’s 1:30am Wednesday morning so naturally, I grab my trusty J crochet hook and a skein of yarn, fully intending to crochet a flower.  The funny thing with free-form crochet, though, is you can start out with one idea and end with a completely different project.  Ever been there?

Crochet Flower for Beginner

Instead of crocheting a flower, when I was finished, I looked down and saw I’d crocheted a sharp-looking flower or a 6-point star.  I don’t know if the mustard-yellow yarn was sending my brain a subconscious message or if this is what I get for crocheting past midnight, but whatever the cause, I present to you this non-flowery, very pointy, crocheted star.

Pictures, free instructions, and full crochet pattern follow.  I’ve never created a picture tutorial, but figured I’d try it out.  Let me know if it was helpful – Enjoy!
