I've been looking for the perfect pattern to finish a beanie, and I think this may be it! It kinda looks like a Columbine! I'll let you know how it turns out. :D

Julie, you are a genius!!!Thanks for sharing.I love pom poms, so I'll give a try.

I love this flower and so does my five year old. I crocheted them and put a button in the center and a rubber band on the back. My daughter has very long hair and often wears pony tails. There are pictures on my blog of them.
Thanks so much for posting the pattern. It is really lovely.

I love this flower, I've just finished my first one (and there will be many more!) and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I used light blue and dark blue/purple in cashmerino aran. It's going to be a Christmas present for one of my friends.

Wendy said...

This is adorable! Super easy! Thanks so much for sharing!

Tilia said...

Hi, I'm an absolute beginner at crochet and I have a bit of difficulty understanding what you mean with "ch-3 space". A chain minus 3... space? Idem with the "ch-4 space". Please help me? tilia.linden @ gmail . com

Julie said...

Hello Tilia. It would be the space that was created when you made 3 chains on the previous round. On the first round you made 3 chains then connected them to the base with a single crochet forming a space. When you come to the space on the next round work all of the stitches within the parentheses for each space.

Thank you for this wonderful flower!!

I used it to create a beautiful winter wrap around shawl for my grandmother.

I have posted pictures and the pattern for my shawl. I included a link to your page for the flowers!

Hmm. I've made several flowers following other patterns, yet this one is stumping me.

Can you please explain round 1 to me a little more? I Chained 1, single crochet in ring, chained 3, single crocheted in ring (three times)...and then I get lost. I tried chaining 3, then slip stitching to first single crochet, but that type of joining doen'st look round at all, and it isn't matching the picture.

What am I doing wrong? I think it's the "repeat *to* around 3 more times" that is throwing me, plus I am confused by the "(5 ch-3 loops)."

Thank you! I really want to make some of these for barrettes for my daughter.

Wnderlnd said...

Can you please clarify Round i directions. I have made other flower patterns, but this one is stumping me a bit.

This is what I did: made a ring, Chained 1, single crocheted in ring, chained 3, single crocheted in ring, repeat chain 3 and single crochet into ring 3 more times, then chained 3 and slip stitched into the first single crochet to join.

It isn't round at all, and looks (space wise) that it needs another loop.

I also don't know what the (5 chain-3 loops) means.

Thank you! I really want to make this work. it's adorable.

Julie said...

Hi Wnderlnd. After you did the "ch 3, sc" into ring round you end up with five chain-3 spaces (or loops). When I put (5 chain-3 loops) at the end, I put it there to let the reader know how many stitches or spaces they should have at the end of a row or round.

So, there should be 5 chain spaces which will end up making 5 petals. If you want more petals, you can repeat the "ch 3, sc" again. There should be one chain-3 space per petal.

I've been searching the internet & pattern books for cute flowers I can make into baby hair clips with thread. This one couldn't get any cuter. At each stage, I am thinking wow this would be super cute just like this! Easy instructions too. You've definitely designed a wonderful flower, I will be making more of!

Hello. I am new to crochet and I don't really understand reading directions for this at all! I've done round one and it looks like I have one of the petals for the small flower in the middle but I'm stumped what to do next. I really don't understand if I repeat what I just did or start a new process. Thanks!
