Crochet Pansy

This crochet pansy is flat enough to be an applique, but you can also manipulate it to give it dimension in a bouquet. Make one or a dozen as desired.

Crochet Flower Tips and Ideas

Whether you just want to try your hand at crocheting flowers or have a particular project in mind, specifics of these flower patterns do not have to limit your creativity. There are numerous ways to alter and customize these flowers to fit your vision.

  • Don't restrict yourself to the colors used in these patterns. Crochet flowers are the perfect projects to use up those small bits of yarn from your scrap basket.
  • There are two basic methods for reducing or enlarging the size of each flower. Simply use a smaller or larger crochet hook, or use thinner or thicker yarn.
  • Create bouquets by recycling old silk flowers. Remove the silk flower heads from the stems, add a dab of glue to the stem end and insert into the center-back of your crochet blooms.
  • Add a fancy finishing touch to your flowers with sequins, buttons or beads.
  • Add hangers to your flowers to use as ornaments, or string them on a cord to use as garland.
  • To help shape the petals on the poinsettia or other large flowers, weave craft wire through the stitches on the back of the petals.

Relaxing Pastime

Many crafters crochet as a way to relax. Even if you have no idea how you will use your finished posies, crocheting flowers is a great way to ease the tension of a hectic day. Keep a basket of yarn near your favorite easy chair whenever the need arises.
