Things to Make: Free Crocheted Flower Garland Pattern



I've had so much fun with my crocheted heart garland and crocheted shamrock garland, that I thought I'd make another garland for Spring!!

This cute little flower can be used on other fun projects, too, of course!!  (Don't be scared away by the pattern...it's really much simpler than it might seem at first glance!!)



Here's the pattern:

Materials Needed:
size I crochet hook
scrap yarn in desired colors

Abbreviations:
ch  = chain
hdc =  half-double crochet
dc = double crochet
st = stitch
sl st = slip stitch
sp = space
rem = remaining
rep = repeat
beg = beginning




FLOWER

Ch 4, join with sl st to form a ring.

ROW 1
Ch 1, work 9 sc in ring, join with sl st to beg ch 1.

ROW 2
Ch 3, work 2 dc inst at bottom of ch, sl st in next ch, *work 3 dc in next ch, sl st in next ch *, rep from *to * 3 more times.  5 petals made.

You can stop there if you want teeny tiny flowers, or you can continue with another round to make the petals fuller, as follows:

ROW 3
Sc in next st, hdc in same sp, work 3 dc in next st, hdc in next st, sc in same st, sl st in sl st from previous row, * sc in next st, hdc in same sp, work 3 dc in next st, hdc in next st, sc in same st, sl st in sl st from previous row *, rep from * to * 3 more times.  Fasten off.  Weave in ends.



GARLAND

Ch 25, * sl st in top of one petal of flower, ch 15 *, rep from * to *until all flowers are joined, ch 25, Fasten off.



For my garland I've used Caron Simply Soft yarn in various pastel colors...I love how soft and simple it looks!  But it has such a pretty sheen to it!  (Maybe I'll keep this one to hang over the crib once baby #5 arrives in June!)

If you like the way this looks, but just don't want to make one for yourself, you can purchase this cute garland in my shop, here!



Happy Spring, Everyone!!!

Too cute! We made some of these cute flowers to use on hair clips (http://our-everyday-art.blogspot.com/2010/10/crochetted-flowers.html), but never imagined using it as a garland--I love the way it looks. So springy and so natural-homey-comforting too. :)

Let me start off by saying THANK YOU!!! I'm still somewhat new to crocheting (maybe 5 months in?). I have been very bored with it. I'm tired of scarfs and blankets annoy me. But I get stuck becuase I have a hard time understanding patterns.

Well I totally get yours and not only that, I have a few skeins of different pastel yarns (6 in fact!). So now I'm off to make my own!!!

THANKS AGAIN!!!!

I've been searching crochet sites for the past several days for an EASY, cute flower to use as an applique on some slippers I made for a friend.

When I saw your flower garland and then looked at the pattern I knew it was PERFECT! These work up so fast and the pattern is so easy to remember. For the slippers (which are black) I'm using a hot pink in RH and they look so cute! Thanks for sharing :)

Hi, I love the garland. Do you use American or UK stitches in the pattern? Thanks

zybercon said...

I learned basic crochet stitches as a young teen from my mother, and have made several blankets with the zigzag pattern, only design I knew. Recently I have purchased several books to teach myself how to read patterns and expand my crochet knowledge. I have become very frustrated at trying to find easy patterens to practice with. Browsing pinterest, I came across this flower patteren. I just finished my first flower and could not be more excited. This is the first pattern I have come across that says easy for beginners and actually was! I can't thank you enough for giving me my excitement to crochet back!
