Easy Crochet Flower Pattern

Easy Crochet Flower Pattern

 This is a simple crochet flower pattern with a twist.  The flower is crocheted around a silver 9mm jump ring.  For this particular flower, I used all six strands of standard, bright pink, embroidery floss.   Jump rings can be found in jewelry supply stores or websites.  I suggest using soldered rings rather than split rings so the thread doesn’t slip through.  The ring I used for this pattern is 9mm in diameter and made with 20 gauge wire.  I’m using a size 4 stainless steel crochet hook.

This crochet flower pattern was designed by me, is copy-righted and free of charge. Please feel free to use this pattern for personal use only. I do sell my crochet items in my Etsy Shop, Catalina Inspired, so I’d appreciate credit for the design and that it not be used for re-sale.

The crochet stitch abbreviations I’m using are standard but you can refer to the post – DIY – How to Make a Crochet Headband for abbreviations.

One Single Crochet in the Silver Ring

To begin, yarn over the crochet hook and do one sc in the ring. Ch 6, sc in ring and repeat around the ring so that you end up with 5 sc in the ring and 5 flower petals. It should look like this:

Round 1 - 5 Flower Petals Made with Ch 6 Spaces

Round 1 – 5 Flower Petals Made with Ch 6 Spaces

   Now, do 9 sc in each ch 6 space. You may need to push the stitches over in order to fit 9. Sl st in the first sc.  It should look something like this: 

  

Round 2 - 9 sc in each ch 6 space.

Round 2 – 9 sc in each ch 6 space.

Round 3 – sl st in next sc. * Hdc in next sc.  Dc in next 2 sc, ch 1, dc in next st, ch 1.  Dc in next 2 sc, hdc in next sc, sl st in next 2 sc.  Repeat from * around the flower.  At the end sl st with first sc and tie off.  It should look like this when finished.

    What an interesting way to blend metal and cloth – it piqued my interest because I am a wire bender who’s been contemplating learning how to crochet. Beautiful job!
