Simple Crochet Flower

This simple crochet ower is the one I used for my Crochet Flower Puzzle Ball. It is extremely plain and has just
4 petals, but that is partly why I like it. I know most owers have an odd number of petals, but I wanted
something I could adapt for a lot of usessomething almost square and easy to work up.

And as the pattern for the Flower Puzzle Ball was in need of a revamp, I thought I might as well post the pattern
for the simple crochet owers on their own.

This pattern is now available in Dutch, translated, with permission, by Elke Wellens from Het Haakbeest.

Materials

I have used Drops Paris Cotton and a 4 mm crochet hook (US


G/6 UK 8) for these little simple owers, but you can use
any yarn and hook you fancy.

I love the look and feel of cotton yarn and Drops has an
amazing array of shades, but I get so very frustrated when
Im crocheting with cotton. Because my tension is quite
tight, I end up splitting the yarn left, right and centre. It
drives me insane (but not insane enough to abandon the
cotton yarn).

So if you are prone to frustration (like me), I suggest that


you use acrylic, bamboo or wool anything that doesnt split
like there is no tomorrow.
You will need:

Simple Crochet Flower Pattern

Round 1
Start with the colour you are going to use for your center. Into a magic ring: ch 1, 8 x hdc.

Join to the rst hdc with a sl st. Ignore the chain stitch, it doesnt count as a stitch and is there purely to get you
to the required height. {8}

Round 2
Ch 1. Hdc inc in each of the 8 stitches around. Join to the rst hdc with a sl st. Ch 1 and bind off. {16}

You dont have to ch 1 when you bind off. I do it because it creates a little knot (last photo below) that lends extra
security so that the last sl st doesnt keep pulling into a bothersome loop. This knot will be hidden under the
stitches of the next round.

Because I made a bunch of these owers in one go, I prefered to make all the little circles rst and bind them off.
You are, of course, welcome to NOT bind off and simply add the colour in the following round into the sl st by
chaining 2 as in the chart at the beginning of the pattern.

Round 3

Change to the colour you are going to use for your petals. Join this yarn by pulling up a loop in the stitch after the
sl st join of the previous round. Ch 2. *Dc x 3 in the next st, sl st in the next 2 sts, dc x 3 in the next st* x 3.

Dc x 3 in the next st and sl st in the last 2 sts. If you bound off your little circles as I did in the previous round,
this will bring you to the sl st join at the end of the previous round. Dc x 3 into the stitch that contains the initial

Round 4
Ch 2. Dc inc in the same stitch. Dc inc in the next 2 sts.

Sl st in the next st, which will be the last st of the petal. Skip the next st (the sl st between petals). *Sl st in the
rst st of the next petal, dc inc in the next 5 sts, sl st in the last st of the petal, skip the sl st between petals* x 3.

Sl st in the rst st of the last petal. Dc inc in the next 2 sts. Join to the rst dc with a sl st. Ch 1 and bind off.
Work away your tails of yarn. {40 not counting ch sts and sl sts}

And there you have it. One simple crochet owera world of colourful possibilities.

Low Spirits, High Hopes


I love this photoit makes me happy to look at the colours and the texture and the shape of the owers.

November always hits me with a bang and EVERY year I forget to expect the seasonal lethargyto prepare for it.
It snuck up on my slowly this year and it took me almost two weeks to realize that I have a touch of the winter
blues, as people like to call it. It makes it sound so benign, doesnt it? A little bit under the weather, A spot
of bother, A touch of the winter blues. But when you feel as if you are spiralling out of controlwhen you
feel as if you cant get up, but darent sit down in case you dont want to get up again, it doesnt feel so benign.

And in the midst of this despondency, I crocheted these little simple owers and they MADE ME HAPPY!
Although no hobby can be a cure for what ails you, I believe that crochet is at least a balm. So if you, like me,
struggle to maintain (or regain) your joie de vivre in the winter months, nd a simple, quick, pretty little pattern,
get out your prettiest yarn, and hook up a little bit of sunshine. You never knowone might lead to twomight
lead to a whole basket full. Its worth a try.
