Easy Crochet Flower Patterns and Tutorials

All these patterns are so easy that once you make one, there will be no stopping you. Learning how to make a flower is easy when you use these applique patterns ideal for headbands, hats, scarves, bags. In fact I can attach a flower to most of my crochet projects.

My daughter was looking for a headband with a flower design on it. I made a head band with no problem but I had no clue how to crochet a flower. It looked complicated, and as I only really had the basics of crocheting I was a little nervous to attempt these but knew they would finish off some of my projects just perfectly.

These crochet flowers looked so cute and dainty to me, but very advanced for a beginner like me.

I can't believe how easy they were to make, though.

To my delight I have found plenty of crochet flower patterns that are easy and collected them here for you too.

After our success with knitting a hooded scarf last year, the children at my daughter's school were getting bored knitting squares. When she arrived with her headband and crocheted flower, we made a deal that if they learned how to knit the headbands, I would make small flowers for them! It is a great motivator! And great to see the children engaged in such a fantastic craft.

This is their favorite design: Watch the easy-to-follow video!

Easy Free Patterns

As a beginner at crochet I wanted to try each of the patterns out to see if they really were that easy. I have included photos of my finished flowers following each pattern. I will also add more patterns as I find them and add photos as I make each one.

Video Tutorials

I have found these easy to follow crochet videos to accompany the patterns.

How to Crochet a Rose

Undoubtedly one of the most popular flowers to make is a rose, but many shy away from it thinking it is more advanced.

If you can chain, single crochet, double crochet and skip a few stitches, then you can make this.

I love how it can also be transformed by the different colors used, or rolled more tightly to give it a tiny rosebud effect or loosely.

Headband Patterns

I made this headband by:

60 chain st. (enough to go round my daughters head comfortably) and used 1/2 double crochet st.for 8 rounds.

And then simply attach our chosen flower.

With each of our flowers we have kept long ties, and used these to thread the flower to the headband. My daughter likes to change the flowers so we also used a pin to attach them.

Thank you so much.

This is a beautiful flower crocheting lens, Lisa. My goodness, and a Squid Blessing!

Tamara14 on December 20, 2011:

You might not believe this Lisa, but I was introduced to some very similar cute little flowers just the other day at my hairdresser who does that as a part time job/hobby and sells them to us customers. She even made them into little rings to put on your finger by knitting a small ring and then stitching it on the reverse side of the flower. Super cute and so nice to do with kids. Thanks for making such a nice lens out of it. Blessed!

C A Chancellor from US/TN on December 19, 2011:

I can recall my Mom teaching me some basic crochet when I was a child but I've forgotten how to do it now. I keep thinking that I'd like to get the tools and learn these skills again. Someday...

Tjoedhilde on December 19, 2011:

Very cool and so creative. I wish I could create stuff like this, but crochetting always makes me angry. I just don't have the patience. After seeing these beautiful crochet flowers I might try and control my temper and give it another go though, they are amazing!

Close2Art LM on December 18, 2011:
