5-Minute Crochet: Simple Flower

simple flower crochet pattern for beginner

Here’s a simple pattern for crocheting a flower.

Materials you’ll need:

  • Any yarn you like, preferably medium weight
  • A crochet hook that matches your yarn

ABBREVIATIONS (US Crochet Terms)

st(s): stitch(es)
sl st: slip stitch
MR: Magic Ring
R: Round
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
hdc: half-double crochet
dc: double crochet

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Start with a MR (or just chain 4 and join it with a slip stitch to make a ring).
  2. R1: Ch 2 (counts as the first dc). Then make 9 more dc into the ring. Join with a sl st to the top of the first ch 2. You’ll have 10 dc in total.
  3. R2: Ch 3, skip 1 st, then sl st into the next stitch. Keep doing that around. You’ll end up with 5 ch-3 loops.
  4. R3: In each of those ch-3 loops, do this: sl st, sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc, sc, sl st. Repeat that in each loop around.
  5. Finish off and weave in the ends.

Feel free to play around with different colors and hook sizes to make it your own! Happy crocheting!
