As spring is very slowly emerging, my favorite thing is watching all of the flowers pop up! In fact, this weekend I’ve been madly crocheting even more flowers to put on hats, purses, headbands, or just as decoration! I wanted to share some fun flower patterns so everyone can enjoy spring, even if it hasn’t quite gotten to your neck of the woods yet.
The first pattern is from Lauren Dahl, and is this great spiral rosette flower! You could make it in any color, with almost any yarn! Our Silk Roving yarn would look especially fabulous. You can pick up the yarn here, and the pattern is available here!
The next knit pattern is for these great pinwheel flowers! Frankie Brown put up this great free pattern on Ravelry – you can take a look at it here. The pattern is free, but Frankie does ask for donations, if you’re able, to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation. You can choose to donate here. So many yarns would work beautifully with this pattern! You can try Kaleidoscope Banana Fiber yarn, or any of the Lux Adventure yarns, just to name a few!
The next pattern is for these great crocheted flowers called “Flowers in the Wild”. Great with solid colors or variegated yarn. I think they would look especially fun with Firecracker Recycled Resolution yarn! You can find the pattern here.
These are the ones I’ve been crocheting all weekend! You can choose three coordinating colors, but I have had great luck using variegated yarn. Our 3-ply Silk Cloud would probably look great! The pattern is by “B.Hooked Crochet”, and you can find it here.
Hope you are inspired to add some spring into your crafting projects!
Enjoy, and Happy Crafting,
