Fast and Easy Crochet Flower

This crochet flower tutorial is perfect for beginners. It works up in 5 or 10 minutes and uses only a few stitches. Any size hook can be used. The larger the hook, the larger the flower. You can even add a button to the center or crochet a center of another color to enhance the appearance.

Hook of choice
1 color yarn of choice

  1. Chain 4 to start.

  2. Slip stitch into the first stitch of the chain. This creates a small loop (shown in image 3 below).

  3. For the first round, do 2 single crochets in the next chain.

  4. Chain 1.
    Do a single crochet in the next stitch.

    Tip: As you go, crochet over the tail so that you won't have to weave it in at the end.

  5. For the second round, slip stitch into the same stitch you just did.

  6. Chain 1.
    Do 2 double crochet into the next stitch.

  7. Chain 1.
    Slip stitch in the same stitch. This creates the first petal.

  8. Repeat the above process to make each of the five remaining petals.

  9. To finish, cut the yarn to create a tail. Pull your yarn through, and then move to the back of the flower to weave in ends.

    Tip: If you leave your last tail long enough, you will have a piece of yarn to use for attaching the flower onto other items, such as garland, clothing, or other crochet projects.

How to Crochet a Flower with Two Colors

This flower works up in about 10 minutes. It uses only two colors. The stitches involved are the slip stitch, double crochet, half double crochet, and triple crochet. This is a great crochet flower for a hat, too.

"They work up really, really quickly, so you can make a whole bunch of them. Make a garland or use it to embellish an outfit." — Chris Hammond, designer

Hook of choice
2 colors in yarn of choice

  1. Chain 4.
    Do a slip stitch to join to the first stitch.

  2. Make a ring. In that ring, you will start working double crochets.
    Chain 3 for your first double crochet.

  3. Make 13 double crochets in the ring, which will form a larger crocheted ring.

  4. To finish the round, do a slip stitch in the turning chain you worked at the beginning.

  5. Cut your yarn and pull the tail through. Then weave in your ends.

  6. Find any double crochet on your ring.
    Slip stitch with the second color.

    Tip: Leave yourself a tail of the second color for the end.

  7. Chain 4.

  8. Skip a double crochet.
    Single crochet into the top of the next double crochet.

    Repeat this all the way around your original ring. You will see how quickly you form loops around.

  9. End with a chain 4 and then a single crochet to finish your row (loops).

  10. Chain 2 in the first space.

  11. Then in the first space, make a half double crochet. (Half double crochet = yarn over, pull up a loop, and yarn over and pull all three.)

  12. Do a double crochet.
    Do a triple crochet.

    Therefore, your pattern is a half double crochet, double crochet, then triple crochet.

  13. Go the other way. Do a double crochet.
    Do a half double crochet. This creates a petal.

  14. Do a slip stitch at the top of the single crochet that is at the end of the loop.

  15. Repeat what you did on the last petal on the next: Half double crochet, double crochet, triple crochet. Then down the other side of the petal with double crochet and then half double crochet.

    Join into the single crochet with a slip stitch.

  16. Repeat for the remaining petals. (Only five stitches per petal.)

  17. To finish, join a slip stitch to join in between the two petals.

  18. Cut your yarn and pull through the tail.

  19. Weave in your ends and the crochet flower is complete!

These would look so much better if they were worked in a thinner yarn or even a #10 thread. Regular #4 weight yarns make flowers look so much more bulky than they should be. Flowers should be delicate, feminine, and lacey. I could not get the video to play. I got an error message that said it could not be loaded because of server error.

This is a fantastic resource for beginners since it offers the tutorial, not only a pattern for each.
