Crochet Pattern: Lover’s Knot Flower AppliqueBy Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment
|This lovely, little flower applique uses the Lover’s Knot stitch (a.k.a. Love Knot, Solomon’s Knot, or simply Knot Stitch). The Lover’s Knot stitch is simple and lacy, which I love to use for clothing patterns to achieve nice drape. Never did I think I would use it for an applique, but it works very well to give the flower light and lacy petals. If you aren’t familiar with the Lover’s Knot stitch, please see the Lover’s Knot stitch tutorial before getting started. Crocheted in only 2 rounds, the flower is quick and easy to crochet. Crochet a few flowers and attach them to a headband or hat, or add pins to the backs and use them as brooches.|

Knot – Lengthen the current loop on your hook to 1”, yarn over, pull through the one loop on your hook: this creates an elongated chain stitch, single crochet in the back ridge of the chain.
