How To Crochet a Simple Flower for Absolute Beginners

When I first learnt to crochet I remember the one thing I enjoyed crocheting the most was flowers.

They are great fun to do by themselves but you can also add them to so many other projects, such as appliqu├ęs on hats. You could also make lots of them and turn them into some gorgeous bunting or a pretty headband for a special little girl in your life.

This flower is very easy to make but that is easy for an experienced crocheter to say right? So I thought I would work on a video tutorial that is slow enough for absolute newbies to crochet to try. I really hope you find it useful and can follow along but for those who just want the pattern then please just read on! (^-^)

You will need
- Any yarn you like but I chose some yellow DK/Light worsted weight yarn
- Any hook size that is suitable for the yarn you are using but I chose a 3.5mm crochet hook
- Scissors

Simple Flower

Step 1

Step 2
*ch4, 3tr into centre of loop, ch4, sl st into loop* repeat from * to * another 4 times to make 5 petals.

And that is it!
