Here’s a free crochet flower pattern that’s great for the beginner, and it’s so versatile with color options! I make these all the time and they work up really fast. They are about one and a half inches wide and tall.
Free Crochet Pattern for an Easy Tiny Flower

I got my inspiration from Attic24 – Lucy has incredible talent for crochet and she also has a free pattern for flowers. I wanted my petals to be bigger, so I changed the pattern a bit for myself. See this flower on my shell bracelet.
