Large Crochet Flower Pattern – Free

July 18, 2020

I love Large Colorful Crochet Flowers! And the centre of my Ragwort Square makes a beautiful crochet floral embellishment. You can use any scraps of yarn you have in your stash – the more colorful the better! The added texture of the popcorn stitches makes this Large Crochet Flower Pattern extra special. Read on for the easy to follow instructions.

These pretty Crochet Flowers work up fast, and are perfect for adding as embellishments to your projects. You can add a pin to the back of the flower to make a brooch for a special gift. One would be beautiful attached to a Summer Hat for a child! String a few flowers together for cheerful floral bunting…..these appliques are perfect for many projects including yarnbombing.
