Marianna's Little Crochet Flower


This pretty little flower is easy to make ~ and would be a cute adornment for many projects - tops, baby jackets, bags, purses, headbands ….. or it would make a pretty brooch with the addition of a pin.

I think it looks cute on this little baby top

Marianna’s Little Crochet Flower

The flower is made in three parts – the inner petals, outer petals and the centre.

The instructions  are written with UK terms.            tc = treble crochet

I used DK yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook. 

Inner Petals

Chain 3 and join with a slip stitch to make a ring.

Round 1:      Chain 2,  2tc, slip stitch into ring then  [3tc, slip stitch into ring] 5 times. Fasten off. (This makes 6 little petals).

Outer Petals

Chain 3 and join with a slip stitch to make a ring.

Round 1:      Chain 2,  11tc  into ring then  join with a slip stitch.

Round 2:    Chain 2, then 2tc into the same stitch, slip stitch into next stitch,  [slip stitch, chain 2, then 2tc into the same stitch, slip stitch into next stitch ] 5 times. Fasten off. (This makes 6 petals).

Centre

Chain 30. Fasten off. 

Tie a knot in the middle of the chain, then tie a knot again on top.

Assembly


To assemble the flower - push both ends of the chain into the hole in the centre ring of the inner and outer petals, leaving the knot on the outside.

Leave the two ends hanging down or catch the ends together to make a loop.

Darn away loose ends.

 

Feel  free to use this little flower for your projects ……. but the idea is mine,  so please link back to me.

  4. How cute! I love them. I wish I could follow crochet patterns but I have no idea what they mean. I need to look up the stitches on video I guess.

    Thanks for linking up!
