I’ve noticed that I have shared quite a few things I’ve made from other people’s patterns on here but there hasn’t been much that, has come directly from my own brain. Sooo I am going to rectify that now and share a pattern that I’ve come up with myself.
It’s a pattern for some little flowers. I’m sure there are lots of similar ones out there but this one is nice because I created it for my friend’s daughter. She wanted some hair clips with crochet flowers and this is what I came up with. There are two sizes because the first one I made was just a bit too big to stick on a hair clip so I down sized it. I don’t remember if I took photographs of the orginal flowers I made, it was about two years ago!
Please excuse me if the pattern doesn’t work, I’ve never done this properly before. My note book has words and pictures that I can just about decipher, translating that has been…interesting…
For both of these I used a 3mm hook and Stylecraft Special DK. I’ve written the pattern in UK terms.
Small flower pattern.
Chain (ch) 6 and join with a slip stitch (ss).
Ch3, 1trb into the ring (counts as 1 pair of spokes). (Ch5, 2trb into ring) x5. Ch5 and join with a ss to the top of the ch3. [6 petals]. Fasten off (Fo).
Join new colour with a ss in between a pair of spokes. Into each 5ch sp (space) make 6dc. Ss in between each pair of spokes. Join with a ss to the first ss. Fo and sew in ends.
Extra small flower pattern.
Ch5 and join with a ss.
Ch2, 1 half treble (htr)into ring (counts as 1 pair of spokes). (Ch3, 2htr) x4. Ch3 and join with ss to the top of the ch2. [5petals]. Fo.
Join new colour with a ss in between a pair of spokes. Into each 3ch sp make 4dc. Ss in between each pair of spokes. Join with a ss to the first ss. Fo and sew in ends.
With the help of a glue gun just wodge these on a hair clip. I can see lots of them together on a head band too or do whatever you like with them!
There, my first pattern. I do have more that I’m going to blog about including one that I am completely in love with that, is very cute indeed. I want to see if I’ve got this one right before I get over excited though. I’d love to hear what people think but please don’t hate it!!

That is a cute little flower! Thank you for sharing.
Beautiful, thank you for sharing, must make a few.
Let me know if it works!!
Yeah, will do, I’m sure it’s perfect!
I’m trying out your pattern, very easy to read and pictures really help. On round 2 of big flower do you mean 6 SC into each space. your pattern reads 6 DC, I did the dc but looking at your picture it looks like a 6 SC. Hope this makes sense. I would say it looks good with either. I did 6 dc and it looks pretty. hope I’m not confusing things!
They’re UK terms where a dc is the same as an sc. I’ll check to make sure though. Thank you for making it!
What a sweet little flower! I’ve book marked it to try later, but the instructions look very clear and easy to follow. Thank you.
Lovely. Let me know how it goes!
I’ve just made one of each using embroidery thread instead of wool, they are so darling!
Awesome! I bet they look really pretty 😀
These flowers are adorable. I can think of a ton of projects I could use these cuties.
