Crocheted flowers, lovely to make. I have crocheted flowers before, but this flower is even easier to crochet. Here you can see how with just a magic ring, chain stitches, single crochet and slip stitch you can crochet this flower in just 10 minutes!

A lot can be done with these simple crochet flowers. With a safety pin you can make a beautiful brooch. For a summer scarf, sew the flowers together nicely. Or crochet many more for a beautiful flower blanket. At least I’ll crochet a few more for a nice summer scarf.
The pattern itself is very simple. It is especially useful that the petals are immediately hooked to the entire flower. The only point with any attention is to crochet along the bottom of the chain near the petal! But a photo of how you do it step by step makes it very clear.
- 1 ball Drops Safran (Of course you can get several flowers from 1 ball, no less than 20!)
- hook pin nr 3.5 mm (see conversion table for other metrics)
- magical ring ring (you can read how to crochet it here)
- chain stitches (ch)
- single crochet (sc)
- slip stitch
Always handy to crochet a test piece, you can visit the next post for this.
So here is the pattern
You can follow the pattern in 2 ways. The first way is through 2 tables, the first table describes the complete flower and the 2nd table describes crocheting a petal in the flower. A second way is through a photo tutorial, the pattern tables contain references to the photo tutorial to make the whole thing clearer.

PS. If you plan to crochet a lot of flowers, then sew in the threads immediately after crocheting 1 flower,… this will save you a very tedious work afterwards!
