Mini Crochet Flower Tutorial

Mini Crochet Flowers

 Well, happy Friday everyone- and happy last day of September!  It doesn't really feel like fall to me until October is here.

So, I promised a crochet flower tutorial and here it is! This one is really simple.  It only requires two basic crochet skills:  chain stitch and slip stitch.  Not too complicated.

And for those of you who have trouble reading those tricky crochet patterns ( it's almost like learning another language),  I'm presenting it step by step without abbreviations, but with tons of pictures! 

Materials:
Any type of yarn of your choosing
Any size crochet hook ( just depends on how big you want your flower to be)

Pattern:

Step 1: Make a loop and chain 5.



Step 2:  Slip stitch into the beginning loop to make a ring.


Step 3:  Chain 5, slip stitch into the ring.



Step 4:  Repeat step 3, 5 times making 6 petals

 Step 5:  Fasten off and weave in ends.

That's it!  You are done!  Let me know if you try it out.  This is the first pattern I've ever come up with entirely on my own, so I'd love to know how it works out for all you crocheters out there.

  3. Wow! That sounds simple! I might have to try this. I learned to crochet last winter and crocheted 5 scarves the first week. I have wanted to try flowers but didn't think I would be able to.

  4. What little crochet knowledge I have/had was what my grandmother taught me more than 45 years ago. Fortunately, this actually looks like something I can do! Now to find that crochet hook...I know it's around here some place. Thanks so much for the pattern.
