3D Crochet Flower with Stamens


Motif Description

My most successful pattern ever remains to be my 3D Scalloped Flower. In my efforts to top that record, I created this 3d flower motif. This pattern has two variations for the stamens. (This photo shows the Swirled Stamen.) Even though the pattern calls for plarn (plastic bag yarn), you can still use any other yarn you desire.








On my daughter's second birthday, January 13, 2012, I unlocked this beautiful reward - the PURPLE STAR AWARD! This is very rare, so I've been told. Congratulations to me!

Thank you for such a wonderful crochet flower pattern article. I visited so many articles and so many did not contain patterns. I was very disappointed until I found your article. Thank you for doing everything just right :)

Nice lens.

How lovely - very much enjoyed this. :)

@anonymous: Hi Tammy! I'm glad you took the time to make this pattern. What I mean as the previous row is this "In ch-2 sp, work 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 tr, 1 dc, 1hdc, and 1 sc". I now know where all this confusion is coming from because I forgot to write, "TURN".

Thanks for your comment Tammy!

anonymous on January 08, 2012:

This is very creative. Excellent work, but I'm confused with the petal part. I understand the first part but not ... "Ch 2, 1 dc in sc of previous row, 1 dc and 1 tr in hdc, 1 tr and 1 dtr in dc, 2 dtr in tr, 1 dtr and 1 tr in dc, 1 tr and 1 dc in hdc, and 1 dc and 1 hdc in sc. Sl st to the nearest sc in stamen. TURN. 14 sl st across petal, sl st to the nearest sc in stamen.) 5x." ..... What previous row?

@MoiraCrochetsPl: You're welcome, but it's really my opinion

MoiraCrochetsPl (author) on December 11, 2011:

@anonymous: Thanks Renee...

anonymous on December 10, 2011:

I think it is really creative, not only the pattern but the thread that had been used. Really amazing

chgreen on September 19, 2011:

had no idea what plarn was til I came here. interesting.

anonymous on September 04, 2011:

This is so cute. I have lots of plarn (from making shopping bags) left so could easily use it for these. Thanks.

MoiraCrochetsPl (author) on September 03, 2011:

@anonymous: Can you specify which part is difficult to understand so I can address your concern?

anonymous on September 02, 2011:

That is a great flower. I am having a hard time reading the part to make the petals, tho.

jessicahoward on September 02, 2011:

@happynutritionist: I'm glad you like it!

happynutritionist on July 20, 2011:

Such a delicate use for plarn...pretty too. I have blue and yellow bags I've been saving from the pink ones year...but imagine a yellow stamen would work well. Will have to try this!

I love the way you have used plarn (I learned a new term today). Lovely design too. I've added this lens to my crochet flower patterns lens.

Cynthia Sylvestermouse from United States on July 10, 2011:

Fabulous! I have never used plastic bag yarn. I just may have to try your pattern just so I can "play" with it :) Angel Blessed and added to "Squid Angel Mouse Tracks in Crochet"
