I made this quite some time ago for my sweet little niece. This pattern is from Vickie Howell (her Sheepish yarn is no longer carried in-store) using her Sheepish yarn. I ended up using a very soft acrylic since a … Continue reading

Here is my version of the crochet headband from the Flower Girl Cottage. I crocheted the headband using cotton yarn until it was about 21 inches, then sewed the two ends together. The flower is from my pattern here. I crocheted the flower in the same color as the headband and in cream, and I haven’t decided yet which looks the best. I should probably put alligator clips on the backs of the flowers that way I can change them out from time to time.

The 4-6-8 Crochet Flower

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!

Crochet Flower Purse

Crochet Flower Purse

So, I started this project months ago, like seven months ago, and it is just now finished! My sis really liked this handbag on etsy, so I looked for patterns and ideas to put something similar together. This bag is definitely one of a kind – I pulled ideas from here, there, and all over to make this bag. The “Blooming garden crochet bag” is very similar to what I used.

First, I crocheted 12 flower squares using cotton yarn with an H hook using various colors I had on hand, some Lily Sugar and Cream, some Hobby Lobby Love this cotton using this pattern. I only did one row around the flower rather than two. Then I crocheted 7 squares in taupe for the bottom and sides based on this pattern, and just did the first three rows. I joined the squares using the flat-braid joining method. After that, I single crocheted 4 rows around the top using a decrease on the sides. Then, I single crocheted over cord for the handles, designed and sewed in a custom fabric liner complete with magnetic clasp, and then finally DONE!!!

Crochet Valentine Romance Headband – spring version!

Completed Headband with flower

I have really enjoyed the Crochet Valentine Romance Headband (free download on ravelry). So far I have made a blue one for DD2, a purple one for DD1, and an adult size in purple. The pattern on ravelry is JUST the headband. So I designed my own flower to which I added a lovely purple button.

The flower was crocheted with Caron Simply Soft yarn in white with an E hook. The headband was crocheted with Bernat Satin yarn in lavendar. I will work on putting together a tutorial for the flower.

Batch of Crochet Headbands

Here are some fun headbands/earwarmers I’ve been working on. They would be perfect for a Valentine’s gift or just a fun project to make for yourself. I crocheted each of these in 100% cotton yarn (except for the Delightfully Chunky Headband Earwarmer which is crocheted in a wool poly blend). If you’d like to purchase the finished product, please see my etsy shop:

My New Favorite Crochet Flower

I received this hat for Christmas, and I loved the crochet flower, so I had to try to recreate it.

My version is not exactly the same as that of the one from my hat, but it is close. In fact, I think I like my version slightly better! I like the detail and how flat the flower lays – a perfect addition to any hat, headband, etc. If there is enough interest, I will do my best to write up my version of this flower.
