A Tiny Flower

little crochet flowersUsing DK weight yarn and a 3.5mm hook this pattern creates a 6 petal flower about 3 cm (1 1/2 inches) across. Although I’m based in the UK, I’m using USA stitch names in this pattern.  Obviously you can make smaller or bigger flowers by using different size hooks and different weight yarns.

Tip: Make your chains in the 1st round quite loose, otherwise the 2nd round is a bit of a trial on the nerves.

Make a magic ring and make 5 sc (single crochet) in the ring.

Join last sc to 1st in the ring

Round 1: Chain 2, then slip stitch (ss) in 1st sc. Chain 2, ss in next sc and repeat around and join with a ss. You will end up with 6 chain spaces (ch sp).

Round 2: 1ss, 1 ch, 3 dc (double crochet), 1 ch, 1 ss in each chain space round. Join to 1st ss with ss.

As you can see from the picture, it’s a pretty cute pattern, and I think, quite versatile. The yarns I’ve used here are all Rowan Wool Cotton, in my favourite shades of purple.

    I want to join my flowers to make a scarf or shawl..can someone please tell me how?

    • Hi Malissa, thanks for your comment. I’ve never tried this, so can’t help you straight away, I’m sorry. I wonder if you could find a tutorial for joining crochet as you go via Google? If I get chance I will have a look and see if I can write some instructions.

  4. thank you! I just crocheted my first flower! Can’t wait to make more. Next up: the Frothy Flower pattern.
    p.s. – I love the Magic Ring.

    • So glad you like the pattern – all the very best with the frothy flower – it’s a bit tougher because it’s more 3-dimensional, but I’m sure you will do it. Yes, the Magic ring is excellent isn’t it. :)

    How hard would it be to add a stem and maybe leaves if necessary? I’d want to make flower bouqets. If you could leave that information, that would be greatly appreciated. Have a very wonderful day.

    Now these look ideal for my pass-the-parcel gifts – beats a chocolate coin! (To me anyway – we’ll have to see whether newly five year olds agree…..)

  7. This is great! I started making Newborn beanie hats and I wanted to put a flower on them but all I could find were big ones. This is perfect! thanks!
