Crochet Pattern: Carnation

By Emilee Gettle – 10 Comments
While out shopping I’ve noticed that crocheted accessories are all the rage. So, this week’s crochet pattern is for a white and pink tinged carnation. There are so many uses for this project. You could make several and chain or slip stitch them together to create a sweet, spring accent scarf. You could also make two and attach hair bands for your daughter’s pigtails. Sew a piece of felt and a pin back onto the flower to wear on your jacket. Why not whip up a few to dress up some headbands. They are a perfect handmade alternative to bows for gifting too!

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 1″ (3 cm) high and 2 3/4″ (7 cm) diameter

Materials:
White Baby Yarn (approximately 10 yards)
Pink Baby Yarn (approximately 3 yards)
Crochet Hook H (5 mm)
Scissors

    Thank you for this pattern, I was looking for a flower to add to beanies for cancer patients. This looks pretty, yet not too “time consuming” so I can make more…. Thanks so much
