How to Crochet a Flower

These are perfect for adding onto headbands, hats, baby dresses, bags or anything you like.

I show you how to make 2 flowers actually. A flat, smaller flower and a larger, double-layered flower. They only take a few minutes to make once you get the hang of how to do them.

If you’re not sure how to work any of the stitches shown in the video, you can see my How to Crochet playlist here.

You’ll need to know how to make a:

Slip knot
Slip stitch
Single crochet
Half double crochet
Double crochet
Triple crochet

I hope you enjoy it! If you have suggestions for any future videos, just let me know.

The yarn will be listed in my shop soon. To be notified when it’s ready, just make sure you’re signed up for my email newsletter there and I’ll let you know when it’s available for sale!
