Crochet Puff Flowers are so pretty, but very easy to make.
This is a great way to use up any of your scrap yarn, as each flower uses a very small amount.
I tend to make these crochet puff flowers all with the same colour middle and a mix of different colurs for the petals. But they also look great in a colour theme of 2 or 3 colours, different shades of pastels, or lots of bright colours.
I just love these little flowers because they are so versatile… You can use them as embellishments on bags, hats or garments… Or you can sew them together to make a blanket, tea-cosy, bag or whatever you can imagine.
I’ve made a photo tutorial for you to follow here… and also a video to follow along as I show you how I make them and is a bit more in depth. i also show on the video how to join them together.
What you will need;
- Yarn.. Any type of colour you like.
- Darning needle or finishing needle
To start off, you will need to do a slip knot, then chain 4.Then slip stitch into the first chain to form a ring. Chain 1, and then do 11 single croches (US) … (This would be 11 double crochets in UK terms), into the centre of the ring. Then slip stitch into the first stitch to join into a ring (as seen in the picture)… Then snip the yarn and we’re finished with this first colour.
We then join our second colour thar we’re going to use for the petals, by pulling the yarn through and tying a knot to secure it. Then pull a loop through onto your hook and chain 3
We then yarn over and insert the hook through the same stitch as the one we joined the yarn into. Pull through a loop and pull the loop up as high as possible on the hook. .. Repeat that agin in the same stitch.
Then do it 3 times in the next stitch as seen in the photo.
Yarn over and pull through all the loops on your hook, and then chain 2
Slip stitch into the next stitch on the ring.
Chain 3.. and repeat the previous steps until you have 6 petals in total.
Slip stitch into the base of the first petal… sew in the end of your yarn… And you’re finished.
We’ve been working on the back of the flower, so when you turn it over you’ll have something like this.
I HOPE YOU ENJOY MAKING THEM AS MUCH AS I DO, I’D LOVE TO SEE WHAT YOU MAKE WITH YOUR CROCHET PUFF FLOWERS, MAYBE YOU COULD GIVE ME SOME MORE IDEAS OF WHAT I CAN MAKE WITH MINE… I’D ALSO LOVE TO SEE WHAT COLOUR SCHEMES YOU COME UP WITH. ?
I hope you have lots of fun with your crafts.
