Crochet Flowers can be fun crochet projects at any time of year and they are definitely hot in the hooks. Delightful appliques and embellishments.

For today’s project we will make two variety of crochet flowers. These pretty flowers are worked in one color. It is crocheted in the round starting in the center and working outward from there. This is an easy crochet project that works up quickly.

Supply List for Crochet Flowers:

  • Yarn or Crochet Thread: You can use just about any size fiber to make this project. We have used Anchor Size 20
  • Crochet Hook Size: To crochet the flower, we used a size I.00 mm crochet hook.
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Finished Size:

The flower measures about 1.5 inches in diameter. Flower sizes will vary based on supplies used and other factors.

 

General Direction:

Unlike most crochet patterns, this pattern has no gauge, no thread requirement and no hook sizes.

That’s because you can vary the size and appearance of each motif to fit the needs of your project. If the motif is for a bedspread, you could choose size 5 cotton thread and an appropriate hook, the same motif could be made with size 10 cotton thread and a similar hook for a doily.

When choosing the thread and hook for your project experiment with a variety of threads to achieve the appearance and texture that pleases you.
