These three-dimensional crocheted flowers are much easier to make than they look! This project is a fantastic stash-buster; you will need a small amount of any type of yarn with an appropriate-sized hook to make these. Join Brenda as she demonstrates all you need to know to create these beautiful embellishments.
3D Flower Pattern
Ch 10. The tenth chain is only a turning chain; it does not count as a stitch.
Row 1: Beginning with the second chain from the hook [HDC, ch 2, HDC] into each chain across, turn. 18 HDC, 9 ch-2 spaces.
Row 2 (WS row): Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), *Slip st into the next ch-2 space, ch 1, 4 DC into same ch-2 space, ch 1, sl st into same chain 2 space, (one petal made) repeat from * working into each chain across. 9 petals made.
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.
With RS facing, coil the crocheted strip until it looks like a flower, and use the yarn tail to sew through the center of the flower to keep it in its coiled position. These yarn ends can also be used to sew the flower onto something else.
Try sewing a few of these onto a hat, or bag. Add a border of small flowers (made in a thin yarn with a small hook) around the neckline of a sweater. Stitch a hair clip to the back of a single flower for an adorable hair accessory. Or completely cover the front of a throw pillow with these in a variety of colors for some gorgeous flower-garden theme home décor. There are so many creative uses for these pretty little crocheted flowers!
