This little flower is crocheted using a combination of basic crochet stitches and popcorn stitches. The flower can be used by itself as an applique, or it can be layered on top of larger flowers to create interesting three-dimensional blooms.
Skill Level: easy
- Yarn or Crochet Thread: You can use just about any size fiber to make this project. To crochet the flower you see pictured on this page, I used Bernat Softee baby yarn in a color called "Prettiest Pink."
- Crochet Hook Size: To crochet the sample flower, I used a size H / 8 - 5.0 mm crochet hook. Feel free to use whatever hook works best with the yarn or thread you have chosen.
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
My flower measures 2 1/4 inches in diameter, measuring from the tip of one petal to the tip of the opposite petal. Flower sizes will vary based on supplies used and other factors.

Ch 4. Join with a sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: Work 12 sc sts in ring. Join the work to the beg of the round with a sl st.
Round 2: [* ch 3. Work 3 dc into the sc st that touches the ch-3. Remove hook from active loop. Insert hook into the 3rd ch and then into the active loop again. Yarn over hook and pull it through both loops on hook. ch 3, sl st into the same sc where you worked the 3 dc sts.* Work 1 sl st in each of the next 2 sts.] Work sequence in brackets 4 more times to make 5 flower petals. The 6th petal will be almost the same; repeat sequence between *s 1 more time. Finish by working 1 more sl st in next st and then end off.
