How to crochet a flower

Hi there!

I promised to make a tutorial on crochet-flowers tomorrow. And you know, I always keep my promises 😉 And I decided to post this one here today so you have nearly the whole weekend to practice! Ready?! Here it is.

To make these pretties…

you will need

yarn in the colour you love and a crochet hook. I suggest to use a large hook for the first flower you make. It’s a bit easier!

1.) Chain 6

2.) Insert hook into first stitch you made, yarn over the hook

3.) pull at once through the 2 loops.

Now you have a ring!

4.) 2 Single-crochet in each stitch around.

5.) And now, yarn over the hook

6.) insert hook into the next stitch

7.) through the stitch. And now you have 3 loops on your hook.

8.) Now, yarn over again (Uh, I feel like I’ve said this too many times ^^) and pull through all 3 loops at once. Now, once again yarn over the hook, pull into the SAME stitch, yarn over, pull through loop. Now you have again 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops.

9.) 2 more loops will remain on your hook. Yarn over and pull through these two loops.

Repeat steps 8-9 once again.

After you have done this, repeat the steps 5 – 7. You will now have your first leaf:

And now,….

10.) Insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over the hook,

11.) and pull through all 2 loops at once.

12.) Repeat steps 5 – 11  5 more times.

Finish your flower off.

TADA! Really easy, right?!

Now, you can start working on projects like cute brooches (like the ones above) or hair accessories. If you need smaller flowers, use a smaller hook and thin yarn.

Have fun crafting!

    omg, yeah…. that’s a little bit stupid of me -.-* yo need to do this: yarn over, into the loop, yarn over again and pull through loop…. it’s like the second half of step 8 ^^
    now, you actually should have 3 loops 🙂
