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:
