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.
Crochet Easy Tiny Flower
By Sara McFall of My Merry Messy Life
- CH = chain
- SL ST = slip stitch
- SC = single crochet
- DC = double crochet
- CH 3
- Join with a SL ST to form a ring
- CH 2 (counts as first single crochet)
- Work 9 SC into the ring (10 total)
- Join with a SL ST to beginning CH 2 (you can change colors here, by fastening off, then join the new color with a SL ST)
- CH 2
- Work 1 DC in the same space (technically it’s next to the CH 2) as the CH 2
- Work 1 SC in the same space
- SL ST in the next space
- *Work a petal in the next space – 2 DC, 1 SC
- SL ST in the next space*
- Repeat around until you’ve worked 5 petals
- Join to beginning petal at the CH 2
Step #1 – chain 3. Join with a slip stitch to form a ring and chain 2. The chain 2 counts as the first single crochet.
Step #2 – Work 9 single crochets into the ring. Join with a slip stitch to the beginning chain 2 and chain 2.
Step #3 – Double crochet into the same space as the chain 2, then work a single crochet into that same space.
Step #4 – Work a slip stitch into the next space
Step #5 – Work another petal into the next space – 2 double crochets, 1 single crochet. Then, slip stitch into the next space.
Step #6 – after you work 5 petals (with a slip stitch after each petal), work a slip stitch into the last space and join to the beginning petal with a slip stitch.
