Do you love the look of crocheted flowers? Of course you do, because who doesn’t, I say! A pretty crochet flower in a bright color just says spring to me. I say you take some of these pretty yarn flowers and create a bouquet. My friend Cindy has a roundup of 10 crocheted flowers, so your first step is to pick the flower that you want to make (any of the patterns she suggests will do). The pattern for these flowers is as follows:
- Chain 63
- Decrease in the fourth chain from the hook and in each stitch all the way across
- Skip a stitch and decrease 6 times into the next stitch. Skip one stitch and single crochet into next stitch. Repeat all the way across.
- Bind off, leaving a 10 inch strand. Roll your flower and sew together with the strand.
I have a brilliant tip if you want a variety of colors and don’t want to buy a ton of full sized skeins of yarn. Get these lovely Lion Brand bonbons:
Are they not the cutest things you’ve ever seen in your life? I love them! The only thing better than full-sized skeins of yarn is mini ones! So get crocheting and make a bunch of flowers. Then you’re ready to assemble your crochet flower bouquet . . . here’s how it’s done.
Gather These Supplies
- Lion Brand bonbons – Crayons
- Crochet hook (size depends on how large your flowers are)
- 3/16″ dowel rod – 2
- Acrylic paint – green
- Craft knife
- Hot glue gun
- Ruler or tape measure
You can use a regular saw to get through your dowel rod quickly, but if you aren’t a saw kind of gal (I didn’t have access to one), then use your craft knife as a saw. Just go about partway through on either side to score and then break it over a table. Hi-yah!
Oh, and if you want another quick crochet project – these crochet bath scrubbies are for you.
