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.

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!

Step-by-step beginner crochet instructions for a free crocheted flower.
