Crochet Flowers Round-Up

May 27th, 2011

Pin It

Want to add a touch of whimsy to any project? Whip up a few crocheted flowers! These small, portable projects are also a great way to use up yarn scraps. Here are five of my favorite crochet flower patterns:

Flowers
Top row: Mother’s Day Flower (left), Tradescantia (right)
Middle row: Narcissus
Bottom row: Irish Rose (left), Six Petal Flower (right)

Once you’ve crocheted the flowers, what can you do with them? The possibilities are endless! Here are just a few suggestions:

  • Attach a pin back for a versatile accessory.
  • Add a bobby pin for a floral hair accessory.
  • Sew onto an afghan for a pop of color.
  • Add to a tote or market bag for some pizazz.
  • Sew to a hat or scarf for a stylish twist on a favorite pattern.

What are your favorite ways to use crocheted flowers? Be sure to let us know in the comments! Knitters, check back next week for a round-up of flowers for you!
