Crochet flowers: how you make them
There are all kinds of ways to make crochet flowers. If you’re just starting off, here are two simple patterns to try. Use your favorite colors and your choice of material. You’ll need the following items:
- Wool or cotton yarn (color and thickness)
- Crochet hook (metal, plastic or wood)
- Thread and basic sewing needles
- Buttons (your preference)
For these two techniques, you’ll need at least need to know the basic stitch. In crocheting, chain stitches create a chain that serves as the base of the project. To chain stitch, you need to stitch two or more loops together to form a chain. Continue to stitch a rectangular or circular base and onward to crochet the following patterns.
Once you have your rectangular chain, wrap it over itself to create a rose. After, shape it with your hands to form a perfect rose.
When you have the shape, sew the rose secure with your needle and thread. By sewing it shut, your crochet rose will keep its shape. This is one of the easiest ways to create crochet flowers.
Our next idea will tackle flowers with petals. Start with the same kind of chain from the first pattern. Wrap it around itself and start crocheting individual circles. If you want, use different colors for the circles to create a more colorful flower. After, take one of the circles and use it as the center of your flower.
Lastly, attach the petals one by one onto the circumference of the base circle. Sew them on securely with a matching color of thread. And you’re done! Now you have a beautiful crochet flower. If you want, add a cute button in the center that matches in color. Secure it with glue or by sewing it on.
