Pretty little flowers - free pattern

Pin It

First of all a big thank you to all of you who wished me well in my last post. The healing process certainly is going to be a lengthy one. Even after 2 weeks of daily dressing changes the wound doesn't show any sign of closing and I am having sleepless nights with my head filled with all sorts of questions. Will it ever heal at all, even if it does will it be proper? What if it gets infected? Do I need more sutures to close it? 
I'll be seeing the doctor next week. I hope I don't go crazy before that.

I want to rest my arms as much as possible. Too much movement sometimes hurts my back though I'm pain-free most of the time. So just to keep my crochet appetite whetted I chose to make something small and simple.

Since it was very easy I decided to write out the pattern as well.  Thus today I managed to keep myself busy crocheting, photographing and creating this post. 

  I used fingering weight yarn and size 2.00 mm hook. I have written the pattern using American terms. 

Pretty little flower
Round 1: Ch 5 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 2: Ch 1, and make 10 sc into ring. Join with a slip stitch to the first sc.
Round 3: Ch 3, skip next stitch and sc in next stitch, [ch 3, skip next stitch and sc in next stitch] 4 times. 
Round 4: In each loop make [sc, ch 2, (dc, ch 2) 5 times, sc]. 

If you want your flowers to have stems, join green in any sc between 2 petals and ch 10 or more if you want a longer stem, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in rest of the chains. Join with a sl st to the sc where you joined the yarn and break off yarn. 

Pretty little leaves 
Using green, ch 9, sc in 2nd and 3rd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in next 4 ch, 5 dc in last ch, dc in next 4 ch on the other side, hdc in next ch, sc in next 2 ch, join with a slip stitch to next stitch and break off yarn. Weave in all the loose ends.

Your flowers are ready. You can take a bunch of them and tie the stems together using a small piece of yarn. 

I hope you enjoyed the pattern. 

I have been trying to visit all your blogs and catch up on all the missed posts. 

Have a nice weekend!

PS: Sabrina of Yarn ism, I have been visiting your blog but I am not able to comment on your posts because I don't have a Google plus public profile. So please don't think I'm being rude.  


  1. Love the little flowers, so pretty. I am sure you are healing up just right, it takes your body a while to heal from the inside out especially after being cut into so deeply. I am sending you positive healing thoughts.

  2. Your type of wound will definitely take time to heal. Slow but sure. Hopefully all will be well when you next see the doctor. Your little flowers certainly are pretty. I will be making some of those up for sure with all the bits of yarn I have around here. I'm upset that so many people went crazy when they thought Google Connect would not be working anymore. There are several blogs where I can't comment and one of my favorite bloggers for years doesn't even have an email address so that I can write and tell her I didn't just stop commenting -- I don't have Google Plus and don't really want to upgrade. Oh well! Take care, Tammy

  3. Hola, son encantadoras las pequeñas flores y gracias por el patrón. Espero que te mejores muy pronto.

  10. Thank you so much Pradeepa for visiting my blog, I am so overwhelmed that you have mentioned me in your post... I was not aware that if you don't have a Google+ profile you cannot comment on blogger, this is really very annoying...I would have loved to read your comments on my blog.....Your wound is definitely going to heal maybe it is a slow process but I am sure it will heal...One of my cousin underwent a surgery and a similar kind of wound was left on her stomach It took a little time but it did close up...You are going to be fine very soon..Your flowers are very pretty and thanks for the pattern..


    1. Thanks, Sabrina. I saw the doctor yesterday and he said it's healing fine. So I am going to try to forget about it and carry on with my work.

  11. Check out using honey to assist with wound healing.

  12. Pretty flowers Pradeepa.
    Always be positive. You are in my prayers.I have faced a situation like this. I got boils in my eyes frequently and everyone at home told that because I am straining my eyes for doing emroidery, it happens. But time healed everything. so don't get confused and be positive always.

  13. Beatiful flowers! Eu faço uma parecida.
    Espero que melhore logo, muita saúde for you.
