I love to crochet flowers! Really I like to crochet anything! It, like this little blog is a creative outlet for me! I love that I can take projects with me and work on them while waiting for kids, riding in the car or relaxing at home or on vacation. Crochet really is the perfect portable project! You can be ready to create anywhere!
If there is one thing I know about myself is that I must create. It is part of me and brings me tremendous joy. The act of creating can calm my nerves and sooth my soul. I was excited to hear about the Cre8time initiative devoted to helping everyone reclaim there creativity. The Cre8time website is a fun place to learn and share projects.
If you want an easy way to Crea8 here is a quick and easy project. Actually this is just the beginning! These crochet flowers are part of a larger project I will share soon!
Simple Crochet Flower Pattern

ON the rose pattern you could make sure that in the fourth sc space that you slip stitch first then single crochet and then 3 hd crochets. It is confusing that you did not add those steps
Do you have a leaf pattern for the Pretty Rose pattern?
They turn out so pretty & I wanted a leaf for it to put on
an afghan. Thanks so much
I am going to make your flower garland and I went to your pattern for simple crochet flower you have everything written except how to end you circle and join a new color for the pedals.
I fastened off after I tightened and slip stitched circle shut. Than I just joined new color and followed directions for first petal and rest of flower. Is this how you would do it. Thank you for sharing your patterns with us!
Just learned the “magic circle” and proceeded to make a five petal flower. Where are the instruction for making the center of the flower? I see some with lovely contrasting colors in their centers. Thanks.
I am so glad you found the pattern helpful! Thanks for letting me know.
