Easy Crochet Flowers

The other day I blogged about the new section of my Etsy Shop devoted to Claire Bear Hair accessories. Today I thought I would share one of the flowers I use to decorate the Claire Bear Hair line.

This flower is very simple. It was inspired by a lot of Shamrock motifs I saw around St. Patrick's Day on Pinterest. I considered making some of those but didn't get around to it in time for the day itself. However, when looking them over, I couldn't help but think that if you added a few extra "leaves" the leaves would turn into petals and you would have a flower.

So here is the very simple pattern:

Chain two then single crochet six times in the second chain from the hook.

Slip stitch in the first single crochet then chain two.

 Double crochet three times in the same stitch (the single crochet).

Slip stitch in the side of the last double crochet.

Slip stitch again in the next single crochet space, and repeat around until you have six petals.



And that is that. It works better with finer yarns. These I did in cotton yarn which isn't quite as dainty.
