Today I have a lacy crochet flower tutorial to share with you! I love making little flowers, and love the lacy center in these! They are really quick and fun to make, so you will soon be surrounded by a pretty pile of flowers! IMG_0490.JPGRound 1

1. Begin with a magic ring. Work 12 sc in circle. Here is a great tutorial for making a magic ring.

Round 2

2. Chain 3, skip next dc. Slip stitch in next dc to form little loop. Continue until you reach last ch3DSC_9562DSC_9565

3. For the last chain 3, you will instead work one chain and the connect to the beginning ch with a double crochet (the starred stitch in the picture below). This allows you to have your hook in the right position for the next round. DSC_9569_FotorDSC_9572

Little Flower Tutorial!

Group of Flowers Go_Fotor

I really love making flowers.  There are so many things you can do with them!  I love using them as coasters, or connecting them into long garlands.  We have a ton floating around the house, and my little cousins love collecting them every time they’re over. These little guys are easy to make and are definitely addicting!

To start, chain 5 then slip stitch in first chain to form a ring. You will work out of this ring for the first round.

You can also easily adjust the size of your flower just by changing hook size.  Each of the flowers below were made with the same yarn and pattern, but with different hooks.

Three sizes go right

This is my first attempt at a tutorial and it was really fun to make!  I hope everything is clear enough, but if you have any questions, please let me know!
