Crochet Flowers for Beginners with Free Patterns

You’re going to love these crochet flowers for beginners with free crochet patterns because they crochet quickly and every one of these easy crochet flowers is done in one piece.

Why are these patterns good for beginners?  

Crochet flowers can be quite intricate to make and will expand your crochet skills. But they don’t use very much wool and they crochet together very quickly. Pretty flowers are the perfect way to practice several different stitches in a small project. As they use very little material if you get lost, pull it apart and start again.  No stress about wasted time, or ruining materials like you can get with a bigger project.  You can make these flowers with scrap yarn, dollar store yarn, or crochet cotton. Crochet cotton is the smallest to work with and the hardest to see, but I am using 4 wt cotton yarn weight for the flowers, but thin yarn works well too.

If choosing the simplest flower to make,  the forget-me-knots and the small roses are the easiest crochet flowers to make and have simple flower patterns.  Each flower is listed separately, with its free pattern.  But I am including a very detailed tutorial with step-by-step instructions plus a video tutorial.

Every easy crochet pattern is worked in the same G-6 or 4 mm hook size. You can also choose to crochet with a thicker-weight yarn and a larger crochet hook to practice the flowers. Check your yarn label for the yarn weight and the recommended crochet hook size. Remember that your blossoms will end up much larger than the ones I am doing.

How to Use Crocheted Flowers

Although crocheted flowers are making a comeback along with granny squares, we don’t see them everywhere like we used to. I think it’s because most women don’t have the free time to make large elaborate crochet projects.  Small little touches of crochet flowers make beautiful flower embellishments for home decor, especially for Spring decor.  It’s easy to whip up some little flowers using basic stitches. It’s a great way to spend a few minutes happily crafting.  The largest of the flowers in this post took me half an hour to make. Attach some to your curtain tie-backs, pin them to the corner of a valance, sew them to a shopping bag, or put them in a little girl’s headband, hair clips, or hair scrunchie.  I am making several to embellish a birch bark Easter bunny I will publish soon.  

Crochet Abbreviations used in all the patterns in US Terms

Chain Stitch – ch

Slip stitch –  sl st

Single Crochet – sc

Half-double Crochet – hdc

In crochet patterns, an asterisk (*)  indicates that you must repeat the instructions immediately following it.  You will see in some patterns I tell you how often to repeat with a number.  Or I will tell you to repeat what’s in the asterisk until the end of the round.  

If you have never crocheted before I recently created a very thorough step-by-step guide on everything you need to know to become confident with crochet. If you find thus blog post confusing you can check out this Beginners Guide to Crochet – How to Get Started.
