Project Description:

This flower was designed to embellish a matching choker-style necklace.

This flower could also be used in a variety of other craft projects.

Colors:

The flower can be crocheted using either one or two colors, whichever you prefer. If you need some color inspiration, please check out the color variations for this project to see more possibilities.

Materials:

Both the necklace and the flower are crocheted with embroidery floss. If you aren't making this flower to match the crocheted necklace, you might want to use other materials. Feel free to make substitutions; this pattern could easily be worked in either yarn or crochet thread.

If you need a larger flower, be sure to check out this free flower pattern as well; it is similar, but utilizes worsted weight yarn.

If you are working the choker necklace pattern, see the complete list of materials given on the pattern page for that project.

Crochet Instructions:

This flower is worked in the round. Work in back loops of stitches until directed otherwise.

Ch 3. Sl st to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3.

(Sc in ring, Ch 1.) Repeat sequence inside parentheses 7 more times for a total of 8 times. Sl st to join.

Round 2: Ch 8. Next, you're going to anchor this chain to the previous round. Skip a sc st and then sc in the back loop of the next sc st. (Ch 8, skip next sc, sc in following sc.) Repeat sequence in parentheses 5 more times. Ch 8 for last petal. Sc to join this petal to the previous round in the stitch that is right beside the base of the first ch-8 petal.

You should end up with 8 flower petals total at the end of this round.

Round 3: Work 6 sc into the space formed by the first petal of round 2. (Insert hook into next petal and work 6 sc.) Repeat sequence inside parentheses 6 more times, once for each remaining flower petal. Sl st to join.

End off, cut the yarn, and weave in the loose ends.

In round 4, you will be starting a new layer of flower petals. Work into front loops of the sc sts formed in round 1.

Round 4: Join new color of embroidery floss, draw up a loop and ch 4. (Skip the next sc in round 1. Sc in front loop of the following sc. Ch 3.) Repeat sequence in parentheses 6 more times.

Sc in the same spot you began your chain for the round.

Round 5: Work 4 sc in each petal all the way around the flower. Sl St to join.

End off. Weave in loose ends.

Embellish the Flower:

The flower in the sample has been enhanced using a faux hydrangea flower and a metal scrapbooking brad. Other possible embellishments include buttons and jewelry findings.

Embellishing is optional. The crocheted flower is lovely on its own, so you can feel free to use it as-is if you prefer that. If you are using the flower as the focal point in a necklace, adding a pretty bauble in the center can really dress it up.
