Even a beginner can enjoy this easy 7 petal flower crochet pattern. You will find written instructions and a helpful photo tutorial below.
How to Crochet a Flower in Layers
You will first create the flower centre. Add your first layer of petals. (You could stop here and use this small crochet flower as it is!) Holding this layer forward you will work behind the back of the petals from round 2, to create a chain loop between each petal.
For your final round, you will use each chain space to create another layer of petals to form your double layer flower.
Center of the Two Layer Crochet Flower
You will start by crocheting 4 chains which you will join together to form a ring, and then work single crochets into this ring.
You can use a contrast color for the centre which changes the look of the flower and use different colors for the petals if you wish.

Best Yarn for Crochet Flowers
I use scraps of DK weight yarn for my flowers, but you can use any yarn weight you wish – just use a matching hook. My favourite yarn for making flowers is a cotton yarn as it washes well, keeps its shape and comes in a huge selection of colors!
With excellent stitch definition, cotton yarn is perfect for smaller projects like these crochet flowers.
