Crocheted Flowers

Lion Brand® Bonbons®


 Exact gauge is not essential to this project.



1.     Each flower is made from a long strip of shells. The strip is rolled into a spiral, then the lower edges are sewn together to form the base of the Flower. The upper edges form the petals.
2.     To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.


With color of your choice, ch 17 (35, 53).
Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook (first V-st made), *ch 1, skip next ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch (V-st made); rep from * across - 7 (16, 25) V-sts at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, 5 dc in ch-1 sp of first V-st (first shell made), *sc in next ch-1 sp (between V-sts), 6 dc in ch-1 sp of next V-st (shell made); rep from * across, working last shell in the turning ch-sp - 7 (16, 25) shells at the end of this row.
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

With first color of your choice, ch 17 (35, 53).
Rows 1 and 2: Work Rows 1 and 2 of One-Color Flower, change color in last st of Row 2.
Do not fasten off.
Row 3: With new color, ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

Thread yarn tail into blunt needle. Roll first shell tightly to form center bud; sew together with 2-3 sts. Roll remaining strip to form Flower, secure by sewing in and out through layers of foundation ch at lower edge of Flower. If you want to make your Flower a pin or a barrette, glue the Flower to a pin back or barrette back.

Crocheted Flowers Reviewed by Emma Reesor on 2015-05-29 *****
My (large) flower took me about an hour to make and looks exactly as I was expecting. I'm using it to make a fascinator for an upcoming bridal shower and I think it is the perfect size.
