3D Crochet Flower with Stamens

Updated on January 28, 2012

Motif Description

My most successful pattern ever remains to be my 3D Scalloped Flower. In my efforts to top that record, I created this 3d flower motif. This pattern has two variations for the stamens. (This photo shows the Swirled Stamen.) Even though the pattern calls for plarn (plastic bag yarn), you can still use any other yarn you desire.

I won the PURPLE STAR AWARD!

      Thank you for such a wonderful crochet flower pattern article. I visited so many articles and so many did not contain patterns. I was very disappointed until I found your article. Thank you for doing everything just right :)

      @anonymous: Hi Tammy! I'm glad you took the time to make this pattern. What I mean as the previous row is this "In ch-2 sp, work 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 tr, 1 dc, 1hdc, and 1 sc". I now know where all this confusion is coming from because I forgot to write, "TURN".

      Thanks for your comment Tammy!

      I think it is really creative, not only the pattern but the thread that had been used. Really amazing

      anonymous 5 years ago

      This is very creative. Excellent work, but I'm confused with the petal part. I understand the first part but not ... "Ch 2, 1 dc in sc of previous row, 1 dc and 1 tr in hdc, 1 tr and 1 dtr in dc, 2 dtr in tr, 1 dtr and 1 tr in dc, 1 tr and 1 dc in hdc, and 1 dc and 1 hdc in sc. Sl st to the nearest sc in stamen. TURN. 14 sl st across petal, sl st to the nearest sc in stamen.) 5x." ..... What previous row?

      This is so cute. I have lots of plarn (from making shopping bags) left so could easily use it for these. Thanks.

      @anonymous: Can you specify which part is difficult to understand so I can address your concern?

      That is a great flower. I am having a hard time reading the part to make the petals, tho.

      I love the way you have used plarn (I learned a new term today). Lovely design too. I've added this lens to my crochet flower patterns lens.

      Such a delicate use for plarn...pretty too. I have blue and yellow bags I've been saving from the supermarket...no pink ones year...but imagine a yellow stamen would work well. Will have to try this!
