It’s been a long summer, and I haven’t been able to write very many free crochet patterns for you because things have been a little bit hectic. Today, I finally had some time to sit down and write up a new design. As usual, I’m not quite sure what type of flower this is. Maybe similar to a gerbera daisy? If you think it looks more like something else, I’d be happy to hear suggestions.

If you’d like to make one of these flowers for yourself, here’s how!

Materials:

  • H crochet hook
  • Small amounts of worsted weight yarn in 3 colors (I used 100% cotton)
  • Tapestry needle for weaving ends

This crochet flower measures approximately 5.5″ in diameter (without the leaves).

Directions: 

With your first color, ch 3.

Round 1: Work 12 dc in the first chain. Sl st in the top of the first dc (not into ch). Ch 2. (12)

Round 2: *2 dc in each stitch* around. Sl st in the top of the first dc. Ch 2. (24)

Round 3: Skip one stitch, sc in the next stitch. *ch 2, skip 1, sc in the next* 10 times. ch 2, skip 1, sl st in the first ch 2 space made in this round. Cut yarn and weave ends. (12 chain 2 spaces made)

Round 4: Join your second color yarn with a slip stitch in any of the ch 2 spaces. Ch 6. dc in the third chain from hook, dc in the next three chains. Sl st in the same ch 2 space. *Sl st in the next ch 2 space, ch 6. dc in the third chain from hook, dc in the next three chains. Sl st in the same ch 2 space* around. You should now have your fist layer of petals (12 of them).

Now it’s time to make the second layer of petals behind the first.

Round 5: Sl into the ch 2 space from round 3, ch 3. *Sl st into the next ch 2 space from round 3, ch 3* around. End with a sl st into the first ch 3 space. (12 ch 3 spaces made)

Round 6: ch 6, dc in the third chain from hook, dc in the next three stitches. Sl st in the same ch 3 space. *Sl st in the next ch 3 space. Ch 6, dc in the third chain from hook, dc in the next three chains. Sl st in the same ch 3 space* around. You should now have a second layer of petals showing between the petals of the previous round. Cut yarn and weave ends.  (12 petals made.)

Leaf:

Ch 10.

Row 1: hdc in the second ch. dc in the next 2 chains. tr in the next 3 chains. dc in the next 2 chains. hdc in the last chain. ch 2.

Don’t turn your work. You will be working the other side of the leaf now.

Row 2: hdc in the first stitch (so you’ll be hdc in the base of the hdc you just made). dc in the next 2 stitches. tr in the next 3 stitches. dc in the next 2 stitches. hdc in the next. ch 2. sl st in the top of the hdc on the other side of the leaf. Cut yarn and weave ends.
