Easy Crochet Flower Patterns and Tutorials
All these patterns are so easy that once you make one, there will be no stopping you. Learning how to make a flower is easy when you use these applique patterns ideal for headbands, hats, scarves, bags. In fact I can attach a flower to most of my crochet projects.
My daughter was looking for a headband with a flower design on it. I made a head band with no problem but I had no clue how to crochet a flower. It looked complicated, and as I only really had the basics of crocheting I was a little nervous to attempt these but knew they would finish off some of my projects just perfectly.
These crochet flowers looked so cute and dainty to me, but very advanced for a beginner like me.
I can't believe how easy they were to make, though.
To my delight I have found plenty of crochet flower patterns that are easy and collected them here for you too.

After our success with knitting a hooded scarf last year, the children at my daughter's school were getting bored knitting squares. When she arrived with her headband and crocheted flower, we made a deal that if they learned how to knit the headbands, I would make small flowers for them! It is a great motivator! And great to see the children engaged in such a fantastic craft.
This is their favorite design: Watch the easy-to-follow video!
Easy Free Patterns
As a beginner at crochet I wanted to try each of the patterns out to see if they really were that easy. I have included photos of my finished flowers following each pattern. I will also add more patterns as I find them and add photos as I make each one.
I have found these easy to follow crochet videos to accompany the patterns.
How to Crochet a Rose
Undoubtedly one of the most popular flowers to make is a rose, but many shy away from it thinking it is more advanced.
If you can chain, single crochet, double crochet and skip a few stitches, then you can make this.
I love how it can also be transformed by the different colors used, or rolled more tightly to give it a tiny rosebud effect or loosely.
Three Small Flowers
These small flowers are all made slightly differently using two new techniques: the magic circle and the invisible join. And create cute little flowers for those special projects.

I made this headband by:
60 chain st. (enough to go round my daughters head comfortably) and used 1/2 double crochet st.for 8 rounds.
And then simply attach our chosen flower.
With each of our flowers we have kept long ties, and used these to thread the flower to the headband. My daughter likes to change the flowers so we also used a pin to attach them.
Perfect 3D flower with tw layers, fantastic and easy to make for your hats, headbands and all your projects that need that finishing touch.
