Pretty crochet flowers

If you ask me girl can never have too many flowers. I love to give and receive a bloom, but what I really love is to crochet some! There’s nothing cuter than a little bunch of crochet flowers displayed in a simple jam jar on your kitchen table, as part of a brooch or even to brighten up winter shrubs in your garden, and with a little practice you can easily achieve some stunning effects.

Give it a try and see if you don’t get hooked yourself, if your not already that is!

The pattern I’ve used here is from one of my fave books: Crochet Bouquet by Suzann Thompson.

make 5 chain and join with a slip stitch to form a ring. then there is only one round:

make 3 chain and do 2 treble clusters into ring. yarn around hook, insert into ring, yarn around hook and draw through 2 loops on hook (do this twice) yarn around hook and draw through all 3 loops on hook. Repeat for a total of 5 times. Fasten off, and weave in all yarn ends.

  1. I made these flowers to adorn my tea cosy – my first ever knitting project and these flowers became my first ever crochet project. I then put them on my egg cosies, I made a bouquet to hang behind my door to stop it banging against the wardrobe and I have them on my slippers (knitted and then felted) so I can tell left from right. One friend pointed out that crocheted flowers are becoming my signature.
