Neverending Zinnia


"What makes this flower 'neverending' is how it is built. Between each round of petals is a round of increases, so the petals don’t pile on top of each other. So rather than getting taller and bulkier, the flower stays the same height, and just gets wider. So, theoretically, you could keep adding rounds of petals and increases to make it the size of a football field, and it would still only be less than an inch tall, making it great as an addition to things like blankets and throw pillows. It’s not one-dimensional like your typical appliqué. It has depth and interest, without the bulk!"

I love this flower and now I can crochet one! So cool. The written pattern is well done and easy to understand and follow. I guess you can make this Neverending Zinnia as big or small as you wish. I can see some pillows in my future. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet zinnia pattern.

I actually made this never-ending Zinnia last summer. Silly me, I did not take any pictures of it and I have since gifted it to a friend that was absolutely entranced with the pillow that I made with it. I keep saying I will make another but with all the wonderful crochet patterns I just want to keep moving it forward instead of repeats.

This is a beautiful piece. I love all things frilly and feminine and this never ending zinnia fits both of those bills. I completely understand the concept of how it grows and I just can not wait to get started on making this.

I love this pattern, but don't download anything that has to have something else installed to get it, it would be nice to have a way to get the pattern without being forced to install a new program. Thanks

Hi shaaron, You don't have to download anything to get this pattern. Click the link above, "Click here for crochet pattern," and scroll down a bit to see the full written out tutorial. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

This is one of the easiest one of these neverending flower patterns around. No tricky chains that you have to figure out how to attach in the back. As long as you can find the Front loop and the Back look, youre all set. There is an instructional video for one of the designers other flowers that uses similar techniques.

Love this! I saved this pattern. I would love to do this in varied colors! This would look cute on a hat, on a straw bag, sewn to a pillow,-the more I look at it the more ideas I get! The pattern looks simple enough that it would be a great pattern to teach to beginning crocheters or kids,

This is the best ever idea i have seen for pillows for your couch or bed, it is the neverending zinnia

This is my new favorite flower. It's so easy and works up beautifully! Sat here just making flowers cause it was fun. Didn't need the pattern after a few. Thanks for a good, versatile flower. Used on a hat and several headbands. So cute for spring!

I have been crocheting for over 50 years and flowers are one of my favorite things to make. I use them on so many things. I have been making purses lately and a plain purse comes to life wearing a flower. That being said, I have never found such an easy pretty flower pattern than this one. I have to thank the person who posted it for sharing this beauty.
