If you’re already a yarn crafts enthusiast, then you’re probably already in the know about just how much fun making crocheted flowers can be. If you’re not and you’re just beginning to try new patterns and search for quick, easy projects, then crocheted flowers are actually a fantastic place to start practicing some of your basic skills! We’ve been doing them since we barely knew how to hold our crochet hook and we’ll still be doing them just for fun for as long as we possibly can.
Just in case you love the idea of crocheting adorable little decorative flowers just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the best patterns, designs, and tutorials we’ve come across over the years!
1. Crocheted ademium flowers
These adorable little ademium flowers outlined stitch by stitch on The Little Treasures are a fantastic place to start! The chains and shaping are easy enough for a beginner to handle but they’re still great practice in following a pattern and making things that don’t just have straight edges. We like to make many in all different colours and then use them to embellish other things.
2. Little layered flowers
Rather than making flat flowers, would you rather make something that has a little more 3D shape or volume to it? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Pumpkin Patch Designs made these fantastic flowers that appear to swirl out from the centre in a spiral to their edges! They’re still small enough, though, that they’re a great way to use up scraps and yarn ends.
3. Dual coloured Amelie flowers
Just in case you prefer working in finer yarn weights or would like to practice making things that require more than one colour, here’s a lovely flower design that will get you working a little cleaner on that swap! Craftsy shows you how to make a dual coloured Amelie flower in careful, clear detail that you’ll easily learn from.
4. Spiralled flowers
Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about flowers that have some kind of spiralling aspect to the, but you’re slightly more advanced in your skills, so you’re looking for something more challenging than the twirling flower you saw before? In that case, we think you might get along a little better with this pattern from Zekira Djonko that shows you how to make petals that appear to spiral from within one another.
