Crochet flower and leaf - free pattern

Pin It
Hi, how are you all doing? Unbelievable events are happening around us and the future has never felt so uncertain. Everything is getting scarier day by day and I refrain myself from watching the news as much as possible. How lucky we crocheters are to have something to keep ourselves distracted, something that we love doing day in and day out. My only regret now is that I don't have enough yarn to do any big projects. I do have a huge amount of yarn but not enough in each color or variety to design a garment, so I'm sticking to smaller projects. I was working on a cable stitch sweater which I have to put on hold indefinitely as I ran out of yarn. Now I've taken out all the small leftover balls of yarn to make beautiful flowers and leaves. Here is my free pattern for you.

Materials:

Use any yarn you have and a suitable hook.

Size:

The size of the flower may vary depending on the yarn and the size of hook used. The flower that is shown here was crocheted using lace weight yarn and 1.75 mm crochet hook and measures approximately 13.5 cm across.

Abbreviations used (US terms):

** - repeat instruction within asterisks as many times as directed.
[ ] - work instructions within parenthesis as a set as many times as instructed.
ch - chain
st/sts - stitch/stitches
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
tr - treble
dtr - double treble
