seven-petal crochet flower pattern

I've had tons of requests for the pattern to this wide-center, seven-petal flower I crocheted for my bookmark post. I am really bad about writing down patterns for things--I usually just play around with my yarn and different sized hooks until I make something I like. So I finally had a chance to go back and figure out exactly what I did (thanks for your patience!). Luckily it's a really easy flower. It's similar to my five-petal pattern, so if you've tried the pattern in my How to Crochet A Flower video, you can do this one, too.



Seven-Petal Crochet Flower Pattern


Rnd 1: Ch 3, sl st to beg chain to form a ring.

Rnd 2: Ch 2 (counts as first dc), 6 dc in ring, sl st to top of first dc. (7 dc)

Rnd 3: Ch 2 (counts as first dc), 1 dc in same st, 2 dc in each of next 6 sts. Sl st to top of ch 2. (14 dc)

Rnd 4: Change thread color if desired. *Ch 2, 3dc in next st, ch 2, sl st in next st* across. Fasten off.

See--easy peasy! I like using a #10 crochet thread or embroidery floss for these little flowers, and a size 4/2.00mm hook. They're perfect for cards and scrapbook pages. But they can be done with any weight yarn and any size hook.

To add another petal, like in the eight-petaled flower below, simply add an addition dc in round 1. That will give you 8 dc, which will give you 16 dc on the next round, which is enough for 8 petals. E-mail me if you have questions!

Love your flower pattern. I would probably be giving it a try and use the crocheted flower to embellish my hair clips. Great thanks! :)

Leena said...

Thank you so much for your patterns! I can't wait to start making the flowers and butterflies as hair clips for my niece. Quick question - what thread do you use for both the flowers and butterflies?

Little Birdie Secrets said...

Leena,

I usually use embroidery floss for my little flowers and butterflies, but I also get good results from size 3 crochet thread. :)

Piccolina Designs said...

So cute. I have used your five petal pattern over and over again, so excited about this one.

I love your blog. Thank you so much for sharing your secrets! I'm having so much fun crocheting flowers and making rosettes. Quick question. Where did you find the jumbo paperclip for the crocheted flower bookmark? I'd like to make one of these for my grandmother. Thanks!

The South Florida Daniel Family said...

Hi. Can you tell me where you found the jumbo paperclip in the crocheted 8-petal flower bookmark? I'd love to make one for my grandmother. Thanks!
