Do you have odds and ends of scrap yarn stashed away? This multicolored crochet flower is a fantastic craft project for using up scrap yarn.

Materials:

Yarn:

You'll need four different colors of yarn in small amounts:

  • Color A - Camel is color A in the sample flower.


  • Color B - Baby green is color B in the sample flower.


  • Color C - Yellow is color C in the sample flower.


  • Color D - Blue is color D in the sample flower.

My sample flower was crocheted in worsted weight cotton yarn, but you can try this pattern using any fiber in any weight you like. It would be lovely to work this flower with crochet thread.

Crochet Hook:

Choose an appropriate hook for the yarn or thread you want to use. If in doubt, check the label for recommendations.

I used a size H / 5.0 mm hook to make the sample flower.

Other: Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends

Gauge:

Gauge will vary depending on hook and yarn / thread used.

Finished Size:

Finished size will vary depending on the materials you use. My sample flower measures approximately 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

Crochet Instructions for the Flower:

Ch 4. Sl st to the first ch to form a ring.

Round 1: Using color A, work 5 sc in ring. Sl st to join to beg of round.

Round 2: Using color B, work 2 sc in each sc. Sl st to join to beg of round.

Round 3: Using color C, work a sl st in each sc, all the way around.

For the last two rounds, flip the flower over so that you will be working into the back.

Round 4: For this round, work through 1 loop only of the sts from round 2; this will be the loop closest to you after you've flipped the work over. Attach color D. ch 6, skip 1 st, sc. (Ch 5, skip 1 st, sc.) Repeat all the way around – 6 petals total.

Round 5: Into each flower petal work the following sequence: (sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc, sc.) Repeat all the way around. Join with a sl st.

End off. Weave in ends.
