Crochet Flowers and Clips - free patterns

My friend wants me to make her some crochet flowers and attach them to some clips for her daughter so I thought I would take the opportunity to blog it to remember what I did!

I made several variations of these flower here in all sizes. I used a G Hook and an H Hook. You can just use whatever you like though and it will come out a little different each time.

The Patterns:

CROCHET FLOWER 1 - Flowers 1, 2, and 3


Summer Petal Flowers  Flowers 5, 6, and 7
Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Worsted Weight Organic Cotton)
G and H Hooks (you can use a larger or smaller hook depending on the yarn you use or how big you want your flower)
Yarn Needle


Chain 2
8sc in 2nd ch from hook (8sc)
2sc in each st around (16sc)
(attach a new color yarn or continue with same color)
chain 3, skip 2 sc (sc in next st, chain 3, skip 2 sc) 5 times.
chain 3, skip next st, sl st in beginning chain 3 (you will have 6 chain 3 spaces)

Petals (you will have 6 total):
work 2dc, 1tc, 2dc, sl st in the first chain 3 space
(sl st, 2dc, 1tc, 2dc, sl st) repeat 5 times in each chain 3 space. End off.

Leave a long tail if you want to sew this flower to a hat, headband or other item.


Chain 2
6sc in 2nd chain from hook (6sc)
2sc in each st around (12sc)
Attach new yarn color
(chain 2, sk 1, sc in next st) 6 times *you will have 6 chain 2 spaces*

Petals (you will have 6 total):
(dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc, sl st) repeat this 6 times into each chain 2

work this in each petal
(sl st in 1st dc, 2dc in 1st ch 1 space, 2dc in 2nd ch 1 space, 1dc in sl st) repeat 6 times
Sl st into sl st to end off.

Here are directions on how to attach the crochet flower to an alligator clip. Just use the same directions and instead of her silk flower, use your crochet flower.
