Are you a visual learner? I am too! That’s why I like to make crochet videos I find I learn better when I can see something being done. Click the video above to follow along making your crochet flower step by step.
Easy Crochet Flower Pattern
To begin making your crochet flower, start by making a slip knot.
Slip stitch into the first chain to form a circle.
Chain 2 and make 10 double crochet stitches into the center of the circle.
Insert your hook into the first chain 2 spot and slip stitch together to close the circle.
Chain 3 and insert your hook into the 2nd stitch from the chain to form a loop. These will be the loops you crochet your flower petals into.
Continue the loop pattern around the circle until you’ve made 6 loops.
To form the crochet flower petals into each loop do this pattern.
1 single crochet, 1 half double crochet, 1 double crochet, 1 half double crochet, 1 single crochet.
It should look like the photo above.
Continue making the flower petal pattern in each loop around the circle. When the last loop has been formed slip stitch to close the flower. Cut the working yarn and pull it through the loop on the hook to fasten off.
Your simple crochet flower in now finished! Just weave the ends in and you’re ready to sew it onto a crochet headband or hat.
If you would like to make larger flowers you can simply use a bulkier yarn and larger hook.
To increase the size of the flower petals alone you can increase the pattern repeats inside each loop. So instead of 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc into each loop you would make 2 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, 2 hdc, 2 sc to form a thicker flower petals.
