Crochet Flowers of Spring

Mar 20, 2014

We haven't seen the last of snow and freezing temperatures here, but I caught my first glimpse of spring flowers a couple of days ago. It was a tiny pansy peeking out from brown foliage; its brilliant purple and yellow colors representing the optimism of spring.

Now I have blossoms on the brain. It's time to pull out my hooks and yarn. There are so many possibilities for crochet flowers. Here are a few of my favorite crochet flower ideas.

 
   

Flower Embellishments

Crochet flowers are quick and easy, and you can use them to embellish anything. Whip up a garden of blossoms to lay in rows down a scarf or shawl. Or create a cluster of different size blooms to embellish the neckline of a sweater. A single flower is the perfect addition to a hat or beanie.

Flower Fabric

Join a bouquet of flowers together to create the entire fabric. You can shape that fabric into a 3-D piece such as a purse or a gorgeous shawl. Individual flower motifs can be joined as you go or finished separately and then seemed together into your desired shape. This is a fun method to use to create an Irish crochet inspired sweater or skirt.

Flower Accessories

For a quick touch of spring, use a single crochet flower motif. Add a few beads for a bit of sparkle and a hair clip for an accessory that is perfect for a special occasion or use it as a brooch. A crochet flower can also create a stunning necklace or bracelet.

My favorite flower to crochet is the big Sunflower.  There are dozens of patterns, using lots of different stitches and they decorate both an afghan that I made to look like a flower garden and the extras make great coasters on side tables.

My favorite emergency flower is a carnation based on "ch3, sc1".  You make a small center ring with a ch3.  Then ch3, sc into the ring 6 times or so, or as many times as will fit.  Then continuing in a coil, (ch3, sc1) 6 time or so in each ch3 loop you made in the first round.  The massive increase makes a puffy flower/ball.  If you make it really dense, it works instead of a pompom, too, for those of us who are wary of pompoms falling apart.
