Pattern: Quick and Easy 5 or 6 Petal Flower

I’ve been making this quick and easy flower for years now. It’s a great way to use up scraps, and it’s a cute appliqué for headbands, baby booties, and with a hair clip and some glue, it’s adorable in little girls’ hair!

All you need is a small amount of scrap yarn and an appropriate crochet hook for the yarn. It can be made in any weight. I personally love tiny little flowers and use fingering yarn or dk weight yarn with a 3.0mm or 3.5mm crochet hook, but I’ve made them with worsted weight yarn as well with great results.

Begin with a magic circle/magic loop (to learn how to make a magic circle, which is wonderful for anything crocheted in the round–hats, flowers, amigurumi, etc., check out this video tutorial). All of the stitches are made in the magic loop: *Ch 2, 2dc, ch 2, sl st in magic loop. Repeat from * 4 more times for a 5 petal flower and 5 more times for a 6 petal flower. Fasten off and weave in ends (or leave a long tail if you plan to sew it onto something).

That’s it! It really is that easy!
