Project: Crochet Flowers

It's time for a winter fiber flower fix.  I put two new patterns together yesterday for crocheted flowers, one for finer [fingering] yarns and one for heavier [dk, worsted] yarns.   I'll be introducing these in person at Yarns Unlimited in Bloomington, IN on Sunday, Feb 6 at our winter Knitreat.  Go to their website for more info.  It's in the Events section.    www.yarnsunlimited.com


5 Petal Crochet Flower
This 5 Petal flower is for finer yarns.  I made it with my Nuthatch Cable yarn in the Sunset colorway.   See my website for more information and photos of the yarn.    The finished flower is 3 inches across.   I keep thinking it needs an extra something in the center - maybe a button?

Crochet Camellias

These Crochet Camellias are made out of my Cotton Bamboo yarn. [It's on my website, too.]  It's between a dk and a worsted weight yarn.  I used an H hook for the green one and F for the gold one.   They are about 3 1/2 inches across.   The gold one is a bit smaller.

  1. The red one looks like a Plumeria flower. I would market these on your Etsy store. I see several girls/women in the city wearing these as hair pieces, brooches and attached to hats and scarves. Also I know that brides are constantly looking for flower alternatives for their wedding (try offbeatbride.com) and these would be perfect.

  3. I love these! Could a crocheting neophyte like me make them? I'd love a tiny little pearl button at the center of the five-petal flower.
