Anyone who is practiced in the art of crocheting knows that this hobby is as calming as it is creative, and, the best part is that you don’t need to have your grandma’s skills to get started. Today we are going to share the perfect project for all of you newbies out there. And, no, don’t worry, you won’t be assembling any strange decorative pot holders—you’ll be making impressive-looking flowers!
This tutorial comes to us from crochet master Bella Coco. If you’re at ALL interested in this form of crafting, then she is the one to check out. Her almost quarter of a million subscribers says it all—this girl can make some amazing stuff!
But back to our task at-hand. Bella Coco calls these dainty trimmings puff flowers. They can be made in order to attach to a larger sewing project, or just used on their own to add some shabby chic charm to your home.
Before you get to crocheting these beautiful embellishments, let’s first gather together the necessary materials:
Yarn (you will need to separate colors to make one flower)
4.5 millimeter crochet hook
Create the center
Bella Coco crochets these flowers starting from the inside out, so don’t worry about visualizing the petals yet. Just focus on the middle— or the pistil for all of you botanists out there!
You can get started on this by taking the yarn color of your choice and wrapping a section of it around your finger so that it forms a slip knot. Then, using the knot as a base, create a chain stitch and secure it so that you are left with a circular shape.
Next, perform twelve single crochets by inserting hook into the center and yarning over. Don’t worry about the loose end of yarn; you will make use of that piece later.
