These stylish little flowers are fun to crochet, and they look great wherever you want to use them. I crocheted them with baby-friendly yarn, because I’m thinking of using them to adorn some baby projects I’ve been working on. The flowers would be equally fabulous if used on projects for kids, teens or adults.
With only two rounds to crochet, these flowers are reasonably quick to make. They’re small, although the precise finished size depends on the materials you use for making them. They make an ideal top layer if you like to construct three-dimensional, layered crochet flowers. They’re also lovely to use on their own if you need simpler-looking blooms.
The petals of these flowers are created using the popcorn stitch, and they are an interesting project to work on.
Skill Level: easy
- Yarn or Crochet Thread: You can use just about any size fiber to make this project. To crochet the flower you see pictured on this page, I used Bernat Softee baby yarn in a color called “Prettiest Pink.”
- Crochet Hook Size: To crochet the sample flower, I used a size H / 8 – 5.0 mm crochet hook. Feel free to use whatever hook works best with the yarn or thread you have chosen.
- tapestry needle for weaving in ends
My flower measures 2 1/4 inches in diameter when measuring from the tip of one petal to the tip of the opposite petal. Your flower sizes will vary based on the supplies you use and other factors.

Abbreviations Used in This Pattern:
- beg = beginning
- BLO = back loop only
- ch = chain
- ch-3 = 3 chain stitches
- dc = double crochet
- sc = single crochet
- sl st = slip stitch
- st = stitch
How to Crochet the Flower:
Ch 4. Join with a sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: Work 12 sc sts in ring. Join the work to the beg of the round with a sl st.
Round 2: [* ch 3. Work 3 dc into the sc st that touches the ch-3. Remove hook from active loop. Insert hook into the 3rd ch and then into the active loop again. Yarn over hook and pull it through both loops on hook. ch 3, sl st into the same sc where you worked the 3 dc sts.* Work 1 sl st in each of the next 2 sts.] Work sequence in brackets 4 more times to make 5 flower petals. The 6th petal will be almost the same; repeat sequence between *s 1 more time. Finish by working 1 more sl st in next st and then end off.
You can either weave in your loose ends or use them for stitching your flower to another item — for example, a crocheted headband or hat. If you want to do that, leave a long tail of about 8″ to do the seaming when you fasten off.
