Project Description

I was working on crocheting a granny hexagon with flower center; for my first attempt I used a similar small flat flower applique that looks a little like this flower. I wasn't thrilled with the way that version of the hexagon turned out, because the flower petals were a little too wide and much too close together for the project I had in mind. So I decided to try a new version of the flower, making the petals longer, slimmer and further apart. This flower is the result of that experiment.

Crochet Skill Level: Very Easy. The pattern is appropriate for advanced beginners -- anyone who has learned and practiced the basic stitches enough to be comfortable with using them together.

Supply List:

  • Yarn or Crochet Thread: You could crochet this flower using any yarn or crochet thread. I think it is nicest when crocheted with a smooth yarn, but I'd be interested to try it with a variety of different novelty yarns too. I used a medium weight yarn, Cascade 220, to crochet the sample flower. Cascade 220 is a lovely soft wool that is available in a wide range of beautiful colors.
  • Crochet Hook: I used a size I crochet hook to crochet the sample flower. This is a good size to use with medium weight yarn, but you could choose a different size depending on the yarn or thread you want to use, and the size you want your flower to be.
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Finished Flower Size

This crocheted flower measures about 2 3/4 inches when crocheted with Cascade 220 and a size I crochet hook.

Your finished flower sizes will vary based on the yarn and hook you use (plus other factors such as your individual way of crocheting.)
