Crochet Pattern: Simple Six Petal FlowerBy Erin Burger – 28 Comments
This flower is much like the darling posy applique but is larger and can also be used as a motif for afghans, scarfs, table runners, jewelry and more. Motifs like this are also great ways to get rid of scrap yarn! Make up a bunch to decorate a blanket, one to add the cute element to a baby beanie or make a dozen or so and whip stitch them together for a belt or a bracelet.
Pictured are three of these simple six-petal flowers, the grey one was done in DK weight yarn with an H hook, the red one in sport weight yarn with a G hook and the black one in fingerweight yarn with a E hook.
Finished Size:DK weight flower measures 4″ (10.16 cm) X 4″ (10.16 cm), sport weight flower measures 3 1/2″ (8.89 cm) X 3 1/2″ (8.89 cm), fingering weight flower measures 3″ (7.62 cm) X 3″ (7.62 cm)
