Learn How to Crochet Flowers with 5 Free Crochet Flower Patterns

Jul 28, 2011


Crochet flowers inspire creativity. You can use them to personalize hats, bags, sweaters, and more. They are quick and easy to whip up and a resourceful use of those luscious yarn scraps you just can't bear to toss. I've been creating a bouquet's worth of these vibrant, blossoming embellishments and they're just waiting to be attached to finished pieces.


Here we give you five patterns with instructions for creating eight flowers plus a basic single crochet hat in four sizes. Each pattern is perfect for beginner crocheters or experienced crocheters looking for a quick project. You can work the patterns as they are given or mix and match the flowers, embellishing your choice of projects, to create your own unique masterpieces.


The Colorful Crochet Flowers by Mags Kandis are a great way to use up those little bits of left over luxury yarns. The possibilities are endless: use them for bookmarks, key fobs, or to embellish a hat. Play with your favorite color combinations for your own unique bouquet.

The Corsage in Bloom by Christina Potter combines three thread crochet flowers to create wearable embellishments. She provides instruction for combining these three flower patterns to make either a choker or brooch.

The Primary Hat by Toni Rexroat and Susan Hazel Rich provides instructions for a basic single crochet hat in sizes from baby's to men's. The eye-catching peony flower is created using four individual crocheted circles. You can vary the size of these circles to modify the flower's size.


The Flower-Power Posy by Heather Lodinsky is a simple, two-row flower perfect for embellishment. Or play with joining rows of posies to create a scarf or table runner. You can finish a handful of flowers in under an hour. This small embellishment is the perfect project to learn how to crochet flowers.


Three colors combine to create the Starburst Flower by Heather Lodinsky. This striking flower is a perfect project for leftover bits of yarn. You can also work this easy flower in one color. Then let your imagination decide what to embellish, from hats and scarves to garments and bags.


So gather up your leftover yarn and use it to embellish your latest pieces. We hope you enjoy using these free crochet flower patterns to embellish your projects. Share pictures of your projects in the member gallery at CrochetMe.com.

Good questions RNak. Both the Flower-Power Posy and Starburst Flower do not list hook size or yarn weight. These patterns can be used with any size yarn from thread to worsted weight. So, choose your yarn first. Then select the recommended hook size for the yarn chosen.
