It's super easy and doesn't cost anything if you are like me and have a yarn stash. I like these for adding some personality to my other creations, like baby outfits and purses. But my grand daughter asked if I could put a pretty gem in the middle and attach thus to a hair clip? Consider it done.

This is such an easy flower to make. It could be used on so many different projects and an applique or embellishment. This is so easy to customize also by playing around with different yarn types and colors and using different items as the center of the flower. Quick and easy.

These quick little cuties really are a snap to work up. Grab your scrap stash and put it to work! The designer uses regular four holed shirt buttons for the centers, but use your imagination and see how they look with novelty buttons instead. Or use a metallic yarn and a faceted bead in the middle. The possibilities are endless with this one.

Thank you so very much for the flower patterns.It will make my hat very pretty.

Looks great thank so much keep the patterns flowing.

Where it says ch, 1 sc into next chain how many chains is it supposed to be?

In round one after *2 sc in next chain, it just says ch, then 1 sc in next chain how many ch am I supposed to do?

great pattern if you don't have a lot of time!

Nice flower,you can even fracture the pattern with only two petals to create a little mickey mouse.

Yukino, what a great idea, I never would have thought to make this pattern in to a tiny Mickey Mouse! That will be perfect for a blanket I'm crocheting for my daughter, I wanted to put bunches of tiny Mickey Mouse heads in the corners of the blanket and this will be perfect!

I clicked on the blue 'P' and it came up with share with friends. At the end of that it had +More, I clicked on that and there were several more options that also included print. Hope this will also work for you.

i agree with wendy - copy and paste - but i don't do word - i send it to myself in an e-mail

I simply copy and pasted into "Word" then printed. Patterns I really like I also save to my computer.

How do you print off your patterns?

I found this pattern and adorned my water bottle carriers with adds an embellishment I had been looking for. I also attached a cute flower button to it. My knitting guild ladies loved the "gift" that each one got from me (60 ladies, 60 flowers)...Thanks for sharing.

Love this quick and easy flower! Great way to use up scrap yarn and extra buttons, and makes a really cute applique for clothing. Thank you!
