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 🙂
