We’ve rounded up our fave crochet flowers for your viewing (and making) pleasure.
Crochet flowers need not explain themselves. We know they’re beautiful, versatile and look pretty darn glam as wedding bouquets. So the next time someone asks you why you’d want to make crochet flowers, send them a link to this here post – our list is all the justification you’ll need.
Not only have we found 40 ways to make crochet flowers but this list of (mostly) free crochet patterns also includes ideas and ways for how to use them. Embellish a swimsuit or create a crochet paper clip, but be warned, crochet flowers are almost as addictive as granny squares. Happy hooking!

Crochet Easy Tiny Flower
By Sara McFall of My Merry Messy Life
- CH = chain
- SL ST = slip stitch
- SC = single crochet
- DC = double crochet
- CH 3
- Join with a SL ST to form a ring
- CH 2 (counts as first single crochet)
- Work 9 SC into the ring (10 total)
- Join with a SL ST to beginning CH 2 (you can change colors here, by fastening off, then join the new color with a SL ST)
- CH 2
- Work 1 DC in the same space (technically it’s next to the CH 2) as the CH 2
- Work 1 SC in the same space
- SL ST in the next space
- *Work a petal in the next space – 2 DC, 1 SC
- SL ST in the next space*
- Repeat around until you’ve worked 5 petals
- Join to beginning petal at the CH 2
Step #1 – chain 3. Join with a slip stitch to form a ring and chain 2. The chain 2 counts as the first single crochet.
Step #2 – Work 9 single crochets into the ring. Join with a slip stitch to the beginning chain 2 and chain 2.
Step #3 – Double crochet into the same space as the chain 2, then work a single crochet into that same space.
Step #4 – Work a slip stitch into the next space
Step #5 – Work another petal into the next space – 2 double crochets, 1 single crochet. Then, slip stitch into the next space.
Step #6 – after you work 5 petals (with a slip stitch after each petal), work a slip stitch into the last space and join to the beginning petal with a slip stitch.
See this flower on my shell bracelet. Merry Crocheting!
As you can see in the guide we’ve put together here, there’s really very little to it at all! It’s just a case of mastering a few of the simpler crochet stitches and injecting a little of your own creativity into the mix! Stick with a single block color of your choosing, mix it up with a nice two-tone effect or go wild with as many colors as you can lay your hands on – every one’s a winner!

We also love to see these flowers being used as decorative touches around the home. Mounted as decorative wall art, added to cushions or simply scattered around to create an amazing springtime ambience the whole year round, trust us when we say there’s no such thing as having too many crochet flowers around the home!

Round 2 – slip stitch into first chain, *Ch 3
- Yarn over and insert the hook into the same Yarn over once more and pull up a loop as long as your beginning in Ch 3 to form a long loop.

Crochet Flowers Pattern
The pattern for these flowers is as follows:
- Chain 63
- Decrease in the fourth chain from the hook and in each stitch all the way across
- Skip a stitch and decrease 6 times into the next stitch. Skip one stitch and single crochet into next stitch. Repeat all the way across.
- Bind off, leaving a 10 inch strand. Roll your flower and sew together with the strand.
I have a brilliant tip if you want a variety of colors and don’t want to buy a ton of full sized skeins of yarn. Get these lovely Lion Brand bonbons:
Are they not the cutest things you’ve ever seen in your life? I love them! The only thing better than full-sized skeins of yarn is mini ones! So get crocheting and make a bunch of flowers. Then you’re ready to assemble your crochet flower bouquet . . . here’s how it’s done.
Gather These Supplies
- Lion Brand bonbons – Crayons
- Crochet hook (size depends on how large your flowers are)
- 3/16″ dowel rod – 2
- Acrylic paint – green
- Craft knife
- Hot glue gun
- Ruler or tape measure
Use your tape pencil and pencil to mark off 12″ on the dowel rod. Each dowel rod is 36″ long and will make three stems.
You can use a regular saw to get through your dowel rod quickly, but if you aren’t a saw kind of gal (I didn’t have access to one), then use your craft knife as a saw. Just go about partway through on either side to score and then break it over a table. Hi-yah!
Here are all my dowel rods, ready for paintin.’
Use a pretty bright green color to paint your dowel rods.
Let them dry.
Then simply hot glue to the back of a flower – they take about two seconds to set.
Display your pretty crochet flower bouquet in a fun vase – I love how they look with the natural wood. Happy spring to you!
