It is incredible to see a tiny seed transform into a beautiful plant with blooming flowers.
Although it is currently quite chilly in Sweet Home Alabama (I know…it’s May), the flowers have started to bloom! Folks are landscaping, planting gardens, and sitting outside to soak up the sunshine.
My sweet Nana crocheted herself an adorable wreath for spring and requested I make her some simple crochet flower appliques to add.
We are a winning combination: she prefers larger crochet projects like afghans and I prefer smaller crochet projects I can complete in a small spec of time.
So on this beautiful Saturday morning, I made a hot cup of coffee and am sitting by a window with my hooks and a pile of flower-colored yarn.
Simple Crochet Flower Applique
-Acrylic, worsted weight yarn in color of your choice
-Size G Crochet Hook (Changing hook size gives you larger or smaller flowers)
sl st– Slip Stitch
SC– Single Crochet
HDC– Half Double Crochet
DC– Double Crochet
Simple Crochet Flower Applique Pattern:
Begin with you center color of choice.
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1, SC 10, pull tight
Round 2: 2SC in each stitch (20 stitches) on the last stitch, switch to your petal color of choice
At this point, I like to make sure the magic circle center is pulled tight and tie the end to the beginning strand of petal color to keep it secure.
Round 3-Petals: ch 7, sl st in 2nd st from hook, SC, HDC, DC in the next three stitches, skip one stitch in your round and sl st into the next* repeat until the end of the round. You will have 10 petals. Tie off.
Leaf (make 2):
with green, ch 10
- sl st into the 2nd ch from your hook, SC, HDC, DC in the next three stitches, HDC , SC, sl st,
- now turn your work and repeat down the backside of your chains, ch 1, tie off.
Using your tapestry needle, sew the tips of your two leaves together then attach them to the back of your flower through the back stitches so the green will not show through.
So at this point, you can decide if you’d like to sew the petals down onto the surface on which you are attaching the flower or you can use fabric stiffener to prevent the leaves from curling. I chose to leave them be; however, my Nana may decide she’d like them not to curl.
Aren’t they beautiful?!
