Little crocheted flowers (CAL)


Hello..... today I thought I'd share with you these tiny little flowers. I came up with this pattern when I needed a little flowers for a recent make.  I wanted a tiny flower that had lots of petals, that I could use as part of a decoration. Which I'll tell you all about another time.........


These little flowers ended up with nine petals, I needed four for my make but you can make as many as you like.  They would be great for decorating brooches, hats, scarfs, gloves, well anything you can think of that needs a tiny bloom really.

So here's the pattern!!


Chain four and form into a ring.
Then chain 2 , then do 9 double crochet (uk) into the ring.
Then if you want to you can fasten off and add a new coloured yarn, like I did.

Join new yarn to the ring
then chain 2, *then 1 treble and 1 half treble into the first stitch then slip stitch into the next*
repeat from ** another nine times until you have nine little petals

To finish slip stitch into the base of the first petal and fasten off, and ta-dah your little flower is complete.

I made mine using Stylcraft Special DK in Fondant and Cream. ( I do love this yarn as it's available in so many colours)


My make also has some other crochet elements including these super cute little hearts.  I made them using the Teeny Tiny Hearts tutorial over on 'Attic24' they are so cute and really easy to make. Lucy really does write the most fabulous tutorials.

So have you guessed yet what I've been making?
 I'll let you in on the secret very soon as my little make went off in the post today, so I'll be able to tell you all about in a few days.

I hope the pattern is understandable and if you make a little flower, please let me know how you get on.

Happy Crafting
