Valentine’s Day Tutorial: How to Crochet a Simple Flower

I’ve been seeing a lot of crocheted hearts around the internet, so to continue with the theme of Valentine’s Day without crocheting a bunch of hearts, I figured a flower pattern might be appropriate.

If you’re looking to crochet a flower like the one displayed above, you can use a 5.00 mm crochet hook and Vanna’s Choice yarn, from Lion Brand.  The colors I used are Rose Mist, which is faded pink, and Seaspray Mist, which is faded green.  If you want to go a different route, I’d highly recommend using light colors; I had originally created a handful of these flowers with the Charcoal Print yarn, but it was hard to tell what they were.

The good news is that one flower uses such a small amount of yarn that you can probably get away with making about one dozen flowers with just a skein of yarn–that is, if you have the time.  They also don’t take very long, but I’ve learned that these things can get pretty frustrating when you make them one after the other.

Now that I’m done rambling, grab the color you would like to use for the petals of the flower and watch the video below!
