Easy Small Flat Crochet Flower Applique

It could be argued that no crochet pieces lie totally flat, because all crochet has texture and dimension. While that is true, it is also true that some crocheted flowers lie flatter than others, and some are more three-dimensional. This flower lies at the flatter end of the spectrum. It makes a nice applique; if you need a quick flower to stitch to another item, this one's a great choice.

Easy Flower Applique With Treble Crochet Petals

This flower is similar to the flat flower applique linked above. There are a couple of slight differences. The petals each have one less stitch in them, making them slimmer; the stitches are treble crochets rather than double crochets, which results in slightly longer petals.

I designed this pattern because I wanted a flower with long, slim petals to use in a flower granny hexagon pattern I was working on. This flower works perfectly for that purpose.

Easy Crochet Sunflower Applique

Sunflowers are so cheerful and uplifting, don't you think? It only makes sense to want to crochet them, because they make delightful appliques and embellishments.

Real sunflowers are complex and intriguing, with much texture, many petals and many little eye-catching details. These sunflowers are as simplified and abstracted as possible, in hopes of making them simple to crochet and also easy to use.

This is an accurate rating if you crochet the sunflowers in light worsted weight or worsted weight yarn, as you can see in the two largest flowers in the picture.

You could also make tiny sunflowers in fine crochet thread if you like, but at that point the project gets a little more challenging, only because it's not as easy to hold onto the work, and not as easy to see your stitches.

If you need a little flower for dressing up small crochet projects like baby clothes, gadget cozies or pouches, this popcorn flower might be just what you need.

This little flower is a bit more three-dimensional than the flatter flower linked above; the petals have more depth.

This easy crocheted flower has a lot of "blank space" in the center, making it the perfect layering piece. You can pile all kinds of different embellishments on top of it -- beads, buttons and baubles or even other crocheted flowers. If you're a minimalist, don't worry, the flower is also beautiful on its own; no additions are necessary.
