I love these pretty 3D Crochet Flowers and I can’t stop making them! They are the perfect relaxing little project and you can use them in so many creative ways. Once you have the pattern down (it is easy, I promise!) they will only take minutes to make, and just use scraps of cotton yarn.
My inspiration for these crochet embellishments are beautiful Peony Flowers and the lovely fluffy blooms they make!
I designed this pattern to be suitable for everyone. Creating the chains behind the petals can seem a bit tricky at first but you will soon get the hang of it. The small flowers above are made using a sports-weight cotton and a 3mm hook. You could also use a heavier weight yarn and make larger flowers – experiment with whatever yarn you have and enjoy creating different colour combinations!
The flowers below are made with an Aran/Worsted weight yarn and a 4mm hook.
How to Use 3D Crochet Flowers
- Add these to an Easter wreath in pastel colours, or they would be adorable sewn to a Baby Blanket.
- You could create a bunch of these flowers for a flower bouquet
- My favourite way to use them is to attach to a hair pin or clip for a cute hair accessory!
- You can add a pin to the back of the flower to make a brooch, or add one to a child’s hat
These pretty flowers only take minutes to make, and are perfect for adding as embellishments to your projects. . You could also make some crochet leaves to add to your flowers, and you can find a leaf pattern in this post below. Just click the link
