How to Crochet a Flower: Video Tutorial. 10-Petal Crochet Flower

It’s a fact of life:  crochet patterns are easier with a visual.

That’s why I’ve created this video (after many requests) as a sequel to the first JJCrochet video tutorial on how to make a 6-petal crochet flower.

Here’s the latest video:  How to Crochet a 1o-Petal Flower.  I’m no producer, but I’m pretty proud of it!  Watch the video and let me know what you think.

And here’s the free crochet pattern written out:

10 – Petal Crochet Flower Pattern

Ch 4, join with sl st to form loop.

Round 1:  Ch 2 (counts as first DC), 9 more DC into loop (10 DC).  Join with sl st.

Round 2:  Ch 1 (counts as first SC), 2 sc in each stitch (20 SC).  Join with sl st.

Round 3:  Chain 1 + 3, *skip stitch, SC in next stitch.  Chain 3* Repeat from * to * around.  (10 Ch-3 “petal loops” made).  Join by working a sc into the first ch-3 loop.

Round 4:  4 dc, sc.  Into each ch-3 loop, work [sc, 4 dc, sc].  End by working a sl st into back of first stitch.

Cut yarn, fasten off.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think. 🙂  Happy Crocheting!

    I decided about a week or so ago to teach myself to crochet. I watched an awesome but short tutorial online that gave me the basics to get started. After successfully making a few potholders, I decided I really wanted to try a baby hat. After a very exhausting and frustrating week I decided to try something smaller like a flower and in searching, I found yours. I had done 1 or 2 before this one, but they just weren’t looking great. I don’t know what you or your pattern did so differently, but I have now made 3 perfect little flowers in a couple hours (and that’s with making dinner, feeding the kids and getting them off to bed). I’m so happy ~ I didn’t just make a flower, but suddenly it all made sense while working. I saw the stitches and the pattern take shape and I knew what I needed to do next. I actually understood it! Thank you for such a great tutorial and for making me feel like I wasn’t crazy for trying this!

    Hi Maureen – So good to hear from you, thanks for commenting! I love that moment in crocheting when everything just clicks and you understand what to do. I’m sure your 3 flowers turned out great, what are you planning on doing with them?

    Thanks again for letting me know you found my flower tutorial useful- I’ll have to make more videos soon!

    Keep those hooks going,

    I found your blog when I was searching for a flower pattern for the hat I just crochet. There were patterns with HDC and all that, but I wanted something easy and simple, and I found this to be very easy 🙂 Thanks for posting such a easy pattern 🙂
