FPF: Two Crochet Flower Patterns

It’s Friday again so that means free patterns.  Yay!  Happy Free Pattern Friday (FPF)!

Today, I’m giving you two different crochet flower patterns to try out.  The perfect accent for your summer project!  One pattern is a basic, 5-petal flower crocheted in the round and the other is a crochet rosette that’s rolled and sewn at the end.  Different techniques create two different looks, but equally beautiful crocheted flowers.  Of the two, which one’s your favorite?

Crochet Flower Pattern 1: 5-Petal Puff Stitch


  • Small bit of any yarn.  I used Vanna’s Choice, worsted weight yarn.
  • Any crochet hook you’d like.  I used a size H (5.0mm).

Special Stitches

Puff Stitch (PS): *Yo, insert hook in loop.  Yo, draw up a loop.  Yo, draw through 2 loops.* (<– I like to think of this as the first part of a regular dc if that helps.  Just leave off the last “yo, pull through 2 loops” you’d normally do when crocheting a dc.)  Repeat from * to * twice more.  4 loops on hook.  Yo, pull through all 4 loops.


Ch 3, join with sl st to form loop.

Round 1: ch 2, PS, ch 4.  *PS, ch 4*  Repeat from * to * 4 more times.  5 Puff Stitches total.  Join to first PS with sl st.

Round 2: Into each ch-4 space work, *sc, 5 dc, sc*.  To join, sl st in top of first ch.

Fasten off, leaving a 10 inch tail to weave onto a hat, pin, purse, sweater… whatever you’d like!

Crochet Flower Pattern 2: Rolled Rosette


  • Small bit of any yarn.  I used Vanna’s Choice, worsted weight yarn.
  • Any crochet hook you’d like.  I used a size F (4.0mm) to form a tighter rosette.
  • Darning needle

Note: Flower is worked horizontally, then rolled and sewn to create a bud.  If it sounds confusing, don’t worry, it’s not – pictures below so you know just what to do!


Ch 20 +1 (counts as first sc)

Row 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook and each st across (21 sc).

Row 2: Ch 1.  *Skip next st, [hdc, ch 1, hdc, ch 1, hdc, ch1] into next st. *  Repeat from * to * until two sts remain.  Ch 1, sc in last st.

Fasten off, leaving a 12 inch tail.

You should now how a curved piece that looks a little something like this:

On the side opposite your long 12-inch tail, tightly roll the rose along the bottom chain.  Like this:

All rolled?  You should have a budding rosette that’s ready to be sewn up.  Using a darning needle, weave long tail back and forth through the flower to anchor everything down.

Confused by the puff stitch or not sure how to sew up the rosette?  Leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail and I’d be happy to help.  Happy Crocheting!

    Hello. I started to crochet because all 4 of my children where home with a Tummy bug. I saw your tutorials on Utube. They where brilliant. I am slowly trying to read patterns. But I’m English and English terminology of crochet is different from American. So I will get an American crochet book. But anyway my kids are soooo impressed. So I thankyou again, for explaining your crochet. It’s really fantastic.
    Many late nights because I don’t want to stop trying. Thankyou very much . Brooke.

    Glad you’re enjoying the patterns, Brooke! It can be tricky translating patterns from English to American crochet, but the simple trick is to go one stitch up if you’re translating an American Pattern to English (e.g. 1 single crochet in ah American Pattern = 1 double crochet in America).
