I know it seems like I’ve been talking crochet a lot these days, so I just want to explain a bit. Not that crocheting needs explanation, I love it! But right now, my craft space is under renovation and has no floor, which means 99% of my supplies are in storage, and the only thing I could get to were my crochet hooks and a couple balls of yarn. So there it is. You’ll see my desk re-do once I’m done, and my new floors once they’re in too. If you can’t wait, imagine how I feel! For now, here’s a little crochet flower for you to enjoy!
When I was making hats for my craft fair, I discovered that I tended toward boyish or at the very least, gender neutral hat colors and designs. Maybe because I have a little boy at home and always despair at the lack of cute boy designs. I did make “girlie” hats, in hot pink, for example. But I’m not a (very) girlie girl, and you won’t ever catch me with a hot pink hat. I’m also terrible at making up my mind, so I like having options available for those last minute mood-dependent decisions. I decided to make (and sell) crocheted flower pins that can be pinned to a hat (or not), so you can mix and match flower and hat colors.
I couldn’t find a flower pattern that I loved, so I made up my own. These little flowers are quick and easy to make, and can brighten up any outfit. Or group them together for some springtime cheer!
If you’d like to sell items from this pattern or share it with your friends, I just ask that you give credit back to One Dog Woof. Please do not repost or re-distribute the pattern in its entirety. Thanks!
5-Petal Crochet Flower
G size (4.25 mm) crochet hook
Small amount of cotton or acrylic worsted weight yarn.
Pin or Barrette
Abbreviations, in US terms:
ch = chain stitch
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
hdc = half double crochet stitch
dc = double crochet stitch
Magic Ring: Wrap yarn around 2 fingers as if to start with a chain, pull up a loop, but do not tighten. Yarn over, and secure a chain stitch on hook. Work Round 1 stitches into ring then pull tight.
*Note: If you intend on attaching a pin or barrette to the flower, I recommend leaving a long tail before you start, and using the tail to secure the pin/barrette once the flower is complete.
Round 1: Start with a magic ring. 5 sc in the ring. Join with sl st to first sc, pull tight.
Round 2: *Ch 3, sl st in next sc*. Repeat from * 4 more times. The last sl st will be in the sc you started with. You should have 5 loops.
Round 3: Work (sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc, sc) in each ch-3 space.
Round 4: * Ch 5, working behind the first set of petals, sl st in the back of the sc from Round 2*. Repeat from * 4 more times, with the last sl st at the beginning of the first ch-5.
Round 5: Work (sc, hdc, 5 dc, hdc, sc) in ch-5 space. Join with a sl st in first sc of round.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
This picture is my attempt to show where to make the slip stitch after the 5 ch in Round 4. This is the back of the flower, with the white section being the back of the sc stitch from Round 2.
I absolutely love these. I’m looking forward to your crochet-along with all these fabulous yarn projects I keep seeing!!
This is an AWESOME pattern! We are actually experimenting right now with knit and crochet flowers for a wedding bouquet…. and this is definitely going on the list of ones to try!
Side note…. I love the crochet posts. ~Stephanie
Those are really cute and I can think of a ton of uses for them…particularly on a plain scarf I have!

Thanks for the tutorial! I am excited to try these out.
Cute ! Great pictures too
Very cute! I am stopping by from what it is Wendsday link up!
My sister is an artist who does a lot with crochet. She made about 1000 of these flowers and used them in an art installation piece. This is a picture of it. http://www.torpedofactory.org/galleries/target2012/PushPullPlay_Artwork.htm
Found you through Skip to my Lou http://georgielee.blogspot.com
Really awesome tutorial!!
Great post!! I included it in my post Βόλτα στη Γειτονιά #20 🙂
Have a great week!!
Thank you for the tutorial. This was my first time making a crochet flower and I love it. Your tutorial was easy and it made me more confident to try even more. Thank you!
I really really like this flower!!! It’s not too chunky and it is just plain simple and pretty! Thank you!
I appreciate how much work went into that great piece. Very pretty. I make a bunch to put on baby hats that I knit.
Thanks Leslie! I use pins so the flowers can be interchangeable, but that’s because I can never make up my mind on anything! 🙂
That flower is so cute !!!! 😉
Im just starting to crochet and find this pretty and easy. Thanks for sharing.
Perfect! Exactly what I’m looking for to make and adorn my daughter’s “boyish” hat. Thank you!!
These would be pretty in variegated yarn!
They would! If you try them, let me know on my Facebook page – I’d love to see your results!
I can not print this pattern..could you email it to me?
Do you mean you couldn’t print it from the browser? I do not have a PDF copy of the pattern to give away – it’s just available on the website.
How did the bridal bouquet turn out? I’m working on one now for my daughter.
It is but natural that you would buy a good amount of jewelry for the special occasion and thus
invest a considerable amount of money in it. You
can get Rich Coal from the NPC Provisioner in the 21st Hall, outside the crafting bunker.
Presentation folders for jewelry display certainly
are a great option for under stock storage when it comes to a fine
jeweler’s excess jewelry, jewelry folders also are very good for the
traveling jewelry salesmen who are trying to sell their jewelry.
Hello CheWei, I would like to thank you for sharing this tutorial for this lovely crochet flower motif. I am making them now and they’re so easy. I am making some with an extra round with three sets of petals, I will also make some the same as yours and some smaller ones stopping at round 3. I am hoping I can join them altogether somehow to make myself a summer vest. That’s my plan anyhow. When I am finished I will post some pictures on my blog 🙂
Many thanks for this – I needed something to set off the blanket I am making for my new grandchild and these are perfect.
Thanks very much for the pattern I made it in white Bernat Satin. The flower is very pretty. Easy pattern to follow. I am very grateful.
Very pretty flowers. How do you attach the flower to a hair clip to attach to a hat
These are so adorable! Made a couple for my nieces’ hats 🙂 Thank you so much!!
I left a long tail and wrapped it around a hair barette or pin, but you can also just glue it in place. Thanks!
Thank you for posting the free flower pattern! It is so lovely 🙂 I have included it on my blog Karla’s Making It (linking to your pattern, of course)! You can view it here http://www.karlasmakingit.com/free-crochet-patterns/free-crochet-flower-patterns/

other web site which gives these information in quality?
Thanks for any other magnificent post. The
place else could anybody get that kind of information in such a perfect means of writing?
I have a presentation subsequent week, and I’m at the look for such information.
