When spring rolls around, many people like to start decorating with flowers, whether it’s planting, putting together bouquets, or prepping the ground for plants. Others, however, may wish to stay indoors and decorate with flowers in another way. We found a way for even the most indoorsy person to enjoy the springtime, by making some of these beautiful little crochet flowers. Small projects like this are great for whipping up a center piece, accessories for a favorite outfit, or adorning the pillows in your sunroom. They are also handy to take while running errands, as even a minute or two can keep the project going.
This particular crochet pattern uses the following crochet terminology:
- Chain (ch)
- Slip stitch (sl st)
- Single crochet (sc)
- Double crochet (dc)
- Treble crochet (tc)
- Half double crochet (hdc)
- Double treble crochet (dtc)
Unlike knitting projects, there are more than two stitches to learn for crochet, although you aren’t limited by knowing only one stitch. You can make a variety of things with just the single crochet stitch, and the great thing about this pattern is that even if you don’t know the treble crochet or double treble crochet stitch, they’re very similar in make to the double crochet stitch, so learning is very easy and this pattern works up quickly enough so that it retains your interest.
You might want to crochet several dozen of these flowers and make a garland, a table runner, napkin holders, bookmarks, brooches, or coasters, however you prefer to show off your skills. These flowers (and the end result) would make excellent presents for a new neighbor, a teacher, an older family member, or friends. You can even customize the colors to make some in their favorite color, or their birthstone. You can use different types of yarn, from cotton to wool, and if you enlarge the pattern, you could felt these flowers and make the perfect addition to a spring hat.
