Pointed Flower Crochet Pattern
I find I do my best crocheting in the winter when I’m all cooped up inside! Once the hats and mitts are all done I like to toy around and find different ways to accessorize! I decided to make a flower! I have always been baffled with how people make these beautiful flowers all the time. Me? I’d get half way through and end up taking apart what I have done because it now looks like a spider web of tangled yarn! I have finally found a flower pattern that actually made sense. I have altered this pointed flower crochet pattern so I hope that it makes sense to you too. As usual, there are lots of pictures to help you along! When finished, this flower measures about 5.5 inches around.

- Size H/8 – 5.00 MM Hook
- 1 ball of BERNAT chunky yarn
- 1 large button
- embroidery needle (or small enough to fit through the hole on your button)
- ch = chain
- slst = slip stitch
- st = stitch
- sc = single crochet
- hdc = half double crochet
- dc = double crochet
- BL = Back loop only
- FL = Front loop only
Begin by chaining 5. Slst into the first chain to form a loop. Ch1. Note, this ch does not count at the first st.
ROW 1: Sc 7 st into the loop. This is instead of into the chain. I find it looks better this way since the yarn wraps around the loop instead of being worked into it.
NOTE ROW 2 WILL BE WORKED INTO THE FRONT LOOP ONLY:
ROW 2: Ch 8 then slst into the first FL. This will form a large loop. *Ch 8 then slst into the next FLO for form the next loop.* Repeat this all the way around. There will be a total of 7 loops.
ROW 3: Working into the loop for your first petal, *1 sc, 1 hdc, 6 dc, ch 2, 6 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc*. This petal is complete. Move directly to the next loop and repeat * instructions for the entire row. This will total 7 petals.
NOTE: ROW 4 WILL BE WORKED INTO THE BACK LOOP ONLY.
Row 4: Once you have completed your front petals, move straight to the back row. At this point in the project, your yarn will be connected to the last sc of your last petal. Flip your flower over and slst into the first BL. *Ch 10 then slst into the next BL to connect your loop.* Repeat * instructions for the entire row for a total of 7 loops.
NOTE: forming the back petals can be a bit difficult to manage, not that it is a challenging pattern, just that it is a lot of petals to manage… it will not likely look like a flower during this phase. If you can stick it out and get through the entire row, it will definitely be worth it in the end. Here is what it sort of looks like in this stage:
Row 5: Working into the first loop: *1 sc, 1 hdc, 11 dc, ch 2, 11 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc* Your first petal is complete. Repeat * instruction for the entire row for a total of 7 petals. Once complete, fasten off your yarn and work in all loose ends.
Lay your flower out and fold your petals over each other to form the ‘fan’ look. Attach your button into the center of the flower by using your embroidery needle and some left over yarn. You are now finished!
