Crochet Pattern: Two Layer Flower

By Erin Burger – 6 Comments

One of my favorite things about crocheting is making fun and colorful flowers. This pattern is for a larger sized flower that can be made in two colors, like in the pattern, or with an abundance of different variations. This flower can be embellished, like in the photo, with a button or even a little mini pom-pom and would be great for a fun hat embellishment or a homemade corsage you can keep forever.

Skill Level: crochet skill level intermediate

Finished Size: flower is 4″ (10 cm) in diameter

Small amounts of Worsted Weight yarn in Color A and Color B
Crochet Hook G (4.00 mm)

Gauge: not needed for this pattern

    Hi. I was wondering if anyone has a crochet pattern for a sunflower. I’m making a market bag in blues and would love to embelish it with yellow sunflowers. Thank you.

    I love this flower pattern, but i am having trouble understanding Round 3. “working behind flower, sc into ch6 of Round 1” ??? is there any way to explain to me (duh) what this means?

    Am i going from behind and single crocheting into the “hole” that i have just fringed with the sc, hdc, dc,dc, hdc, sc?

    help! please and thank you.

      Hi Anita, yes the single crochet is made into the same hole (space created by chaining 6 on round 1) that you made the other stitches in. The single crochet you make will be next to the stitches you already made.
