11 Free Crochet Patterns For Flowers

Updated on July 5, 2013

Crochet Flower Patterns for Every Purpose - Free!

Love the look of crochet flowers? The following free patterns will give you lots of new crochet flowers to try out and use on any of your projects, from hats to bags and scarves, or on their own as cute accessories. Crocheting flowers is both soothing and addictive, and you'll be surprised at all the uses you can think of for them!

Crochet flowers are also awesome scrap buster patterns - you'll only use a few yards of yarn for each one, so you can use up those ends of balls that you haven't got the heart to throw away but haven't got enough of to do anything else with. They make great stocking stuffers and small gifts to let people know you're thinking of them, too!

Crochet Rose Brooch Pattern

This gorgeous, full rose complete with leaves is made up with an easy-to-follow pattern, and could be made into a brooch or fastened to a hat, bag, or scarf to give it a pretty, feminine touch that isn't overly fussy.

Tips for Crocheting Flowers

  • Use up your scrap yarns! Most crochet flower patterns use very little yarn, so making a bunch of them is a good way to use up the ends of balls that are too good to throw away.
  • Gauge is irrelevant with flower patterns, so use whatever yarn you like, and a suitably sized hook! You can make flowers with everything from thread up to bulky yarns with spectacular results.
  • Flowers are great projects for beginners, because they're quick to crochet and look impressive - but mostly aren't difficult! It's a great way to teach someone else to crochet.

Crochet Rosette Pattern

These tiny little rosettes would look great stitched all over an afghan, added to a floppy summer hat, or stitched around the hem of a children's dress. They should only take minutes each to crochet, so you can make plenty of them quickly!

These bright, happy little flowers are intended to be used as fridge magnets - which they would look amazing as! - but you could use them for anything you like. Children's hats and totes would look especially gorgeous with a few of these added to them!

These are also bright and solid enough to look amazing as a spring centrepiece. Couple them with a few crocheted balls and put them in a glass bowl for a pretty, bright decoration sure to get people talking!

6 Ways to Use Crochet Flowers

  • Put a single large, bold flower on the brim of a crocheted hat! Flowers are a lovely finishing touch that really personalises a hat pattern and makes it yours.
  • Use tiny flowers to make a necklace! Either attach a chain with split rings, or just make a crocheted chain and attach it to the flower. You could even group multiple flowers to make a big statement necklace!
  • Attach brightly-coloured flowers to totes, clutch purses and backpacks to give them an extra touch of fun. Or go for the same tone to add a subtle, classy detail.
  • Make magnets! Simply glue craft-store magnets to the back of your flowers and stick them up on the fridge for everyone to admire.
  • Take flat flowers and make a scarf or blanket out of them! You could even put them between hexagons on a granny hexagon blanket for a pretty, impressive throw!
  • Make them into hair clips or headbands! You can dress up cheap, plain dollar store headbands and hair clips with some pretty crochet flowers. Let your imagination run wild!
