How to Crochet a Flower Motif –Free Pattern for Beginners

Crochet flowers and crochet hearts give me immense pleasure, making them our all-time favourite. They are simple, fast on hook. For today’s pattern, I thought of making a flower with heart-shaped petals.

The pattern is simple; no advance stitches included, the basic granny square stitches are used at the start and curved clusters in the last round to give the motif the heart shape. Perfect for beginners. One can use stash yarn for this project. Colour of the thread can be from self to multicolored. Total four numbers of round required to hook this pattern.

Recommend yarn thickness is 3ply and above, 2ply can be an option; the size of the motifs will be small, less than 2inches.

This pattern will suit to make bags, blankets, etc. The yarn or thread requirement will vary depending on the use. According to the hook size will vary.
