When looking for a great flower for the Mother and Daughter hats I made a few weeks ago, I really couldn’t find one I wanted. I ran across this one by Lucy over at Attic 24 and it was kinda~sorta what I was looking for, but not quite. So I came up with one of my own! Then when I made some ear warmers last week (pattern to come) I changed it up again and finally ended up with the look I wanted. So here it is!


Just about any works! Just use the hook to match. This sample was made with Vanna’s Choice.

Sample was made with 4.5mm (US7) hook, but use the size hook that works with the yarn you choose.

Other Notions:
Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Stitches and Abbreviations used:
sl st ~ slip stitch
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
hdc ~ half double crochet
dc ~ double crochet
tc ~ treble crochet
rnd ~ round
beg ~ beginning
sp ~ space

Start with a magic circle, or ch3 and sl st to join together into a ring

Rnd 1: ch3 (counts as first dc) 13dc into ring, sl st to top of beg ch3, pull tight


Rnd 2: * work entire rnd in front loop only of top of rnd 1* sl st into next st with second color,** (hdc, 2dc, hdc) in next st, sl st in next st, rep from ** 6 more times (7 petals made), sl st into same st as first sl st


Rnd 3: *work entire rnd in back loop only of top of rnd 1 * sl st into back loop of same st (the one that rnd 2 ended in) with first color ch 1, (2sc in next st, sc in nest st) 7 times (21 sc), sl st to top of first sc


Rnd 4: * (hdc, dc, tc) in next st, (dc, hdc) in next st, sl st in next st rep from * 6 more times, omitting last sl st

Rnd 5: with second color * sc over sl st, sc in back loop only of next 5 sts, rep from * 6 more times, sl st to first sc


Clip yarns, end off, weave in ends or leave them free to tie flower onto a hat, ear warmers, or whatever else makes you smile.

    This is the first written pattern I have ever followed! I am so happy. Everything else has been from YouTube. I feel like you have opened a whole new world to me. Thanks!
