Want to whip up a simple, quick, pretty little flower that can be used for decorating just about any type of craft project? If so, take a look at this one. You can use this pattern for crocheting a small flower applique that lies flat. It could adorn small projects such as hair clips, headbands and gadget cozies, or you could crochet bunches of these flowers to stitch onto larger projects.
Crochet Skill Level: Very Easy. The pattern is suitable for advanced beginners -- anyone who has learned and practiced the basic stitches enough to be comfortable with using them together.

- Yarn or Crochet Thread: You can try making this project using any yarn or crochet thread. I recommend smooth yarns but it could also be interesting if crocheted in textured novelty yarns if you want to experiment. I used Pale Blue Bernat Softee baby yarn to crochet the sample flower.
- Crochet Hook Size / Finished Flower Size:
Flower measures a bit shy of 2 inches when crocheted with Bernat Softee and a size F hook.
Flower measures about 2 1/4 inches when crocheted with Bernat Softee and a size H hook.
Your finished flower sizes will vary based on the yarn and hook you use (plus other factors such as your unique way of crocheting.)
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
