This week's Crafty Friday tutorial is a nice and easy project for Crochet Pro's or even Beginners and the end result is so pretty. This tutorial has been requested by our customers too, so we really hope you all like it.
You can use these really sweet flowers for anything, they are perfect for any number of craft projects, you could string lots together to make pretty bunting or even stitch them in to a blanket. They take a matter of minutes to make and can be made in a variety of sizes simply by changing the crochet hook size or the weight of yarn.
What You'll Need to Make a Simple Crochet Flower
How to Make a Simple Crochet Flower
Begin your flower by making a slip stitch and then a chain of 4 stitches.
Push your hook through the first chain you made and slip stitch it with the chain on the hook to create a circle.
Make one chain stitch.
Work 4 Double Treble stitches in to the centre circle.
After the fourth Double Treble, make 1 Double Crochet stitch.
This completes your first petal, your finished flower will have 5 petals in total.
Repeat the previous step a further 4 times.
You now have 5 petals.
Slip stitch the last stitch on the hook with the one chain you made at the very beginning.
Chain 1. Cut the yarn, leaving a small tail.
Remove your hook and pull the yarn tail to create a knot which will hold your flower together.
Using a darning or knitters needle, weave the tail in to your flower, so it is hidden.
You should now have a finished simple crochet flower!
Remember you can play around with the hook sizing or even the weight of your yarn to create bigger or smaller flowers, depending on what you want to do with them at the end.
As always, all of the supplies to make these flowers can be found in our shop.
