Flowers make me happy. Whether they’re real ones, fake ones, or my favorites – crochet ones, I love the sight of them. This pinwheel crochet flower free pattern came from my desire to branch out and create a flower with more depth and dimension. Sure enough, this pinwheel flower has it!
You can use any type of yarn you’d like, but I chose cotton yarn, because I love the feel of it. Sometimes acrylic yarn just isn’t fun to work with, you know?
You can make the flower in any color you’d like, so it’s perfect for any season. Want to add it to a fall bouquet? Use a rust or deep purple color.
Need an addition to your Spring centerpiece? Go for light colors like pale pinks and soft yellows. The possibilities are endless!
This free pattern is definitely easier than you guys think.
I’ve been using these as larger coat appliques and I strung a dozen of them together with a pretty ribbon to use as decoration in the house. You can also put them on a small dowel and use them in a centerpiece if you wanted to. There are a ton of possibilities!
Let’s get start!
For this project you will need to know crochet basic stitches.
How to make a magic adjustable ring, half double crochet and double crochet. If you are absolute beginner, check this out. how to make magic ring.
Let’s start with a supplies.
– I used scraps yarn
– 3.50mm crochet hook (you can make them bigger or smaller by using bigger or smaller size crochet hooks)
Make magic ring or adjustable ring and 10sc in ring (10 sts)
(sc in the next stitch from hook then chain 6, in the next stitch make sl st) now we will repeat it around. you will get 10 loop.
(In the first loop make 14dc in the loop then sl st) and repeat it around, the end!
See how simple and easy is that?
Whatever you decide to do with them, just remember to have enough yarn on hand to complete the project. You could switch out the colors for each petal if you didn’t have enough of one, but that’s entirely up to you.
Enjoy this new pattern and let me know what you decide to use it for! Happy crocheting!
