The 4-6-8 Crochet Flower

4-6-8 Crochet Flower

Throughout the years I have crocheted my fair share of flowers. And of course, some patterns are better than others. So, here is a pattern I have written for a flower which I think looks great and lays flat for attaching to a clip or other accessory. To make this exact flower, here is what I used:

  • size G hook
  • Lily Sugar ‘n Cream 100% cotton yarn, small amount
  • Yarn needle for sewing in ends

In US terms:
Ch 3

Rnd 1: in 3rd ch from hook, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 2, ss, *ch 2, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 2, ss, repeat from * 3 times, 4 petals total.

Rnd 2: working behind the petals, ch 2 then ss in the bottom of one of the dc of the first petal, then ch 2 and ss five more times evenly spacing the loops ending with a ss in the first loop, total of 6 loops.

Rnd 3: in first loop, ch 2, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 2, sc. in the next five loops, sc, ch 2, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 2, sc. in the last loop, end with a ss instead of sc, 6 petals total.

Rnd 4: working behind the petals of rnd 3, ch 3, then ss 8 times evenly spaced in the bottom of the dc of the petals of rnd 3, ending with a ss in the first loop, total of 8 loops.

Rnd 5:  in first loop, ch 2, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 2, sc. in the next seven loops, sc, ch 2, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 2, sc. in the last loop, end with a ss instead of sc, 8 petals total. Fasten off, leaving a tail to sew, if desired.

My flower measures approximately 3.5 inches in diameter, but you can always change the size by using a different size yarn or hook or both.

I’m rather new to writing down patterns, so hopefully this pattern makes some sense!

Please feel free to make or sell products from this pattern. I just ask you to link back to my site.  Please do not copy this pattern as your own.  Please do not re-publish photos as your own. Thanks!

Happy crocheting!

    • It depends on the yarn and hook you use. I’ve made it using standard worsted weight all the way down to embroidery floss. If I use standard worsted weight and an H hook, my flowers turn out about 3 – 3.5″ in diameter.
