5 Petal Crochet Flower Pattern

by | Accessories, All Designs, Crochet, Free Patterns

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!

5-Petal Crochet Flower


G size (4.25 mm) crochet hook
Small amount of cotton or acrylic worsted weight yarn.
Yarn needle
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.

        Thanks Leslie! I use pins so the flowers can be interchangeable, but that’s because I can never make up my mind on anything! 🙂
