Crochet Easy Tiny Flower {free crochet pattern}

Here’s a free crochet flower pattern that’s great for the beginner, and it’s so versatile with color options! I make these all the time and they work up really fast. They are about one and a half inches wide and tall.

I got my inspiration from Attic24 – Lucy has incredible talent for crochet and she also has a free pattern for flowers. I wanted my petals to be bigger, so I changed the pattern a bit for myself. See this flower on my shell bracelet.


Crochet Easy Tiny Flower

By Sara McFall of My Merry Messy Life


  • CH = chain
  • SL ST = slip stitch
  • SC = single crochet
  • DC = double crochet


  • CH 3
  • Join with a SL ST to form a ring
  • CH 2 (counts as first single crochet)
  • Work 9 SC into the ring (10 total)
  • Join with a SL ST to beginning CH 2 (you can change colors here, by fastening off, then join the new color with a SL ST)
  • CH 2
  • Work 1 DC in the same space (technically it’s next to the CH 2) as the CH 2
  • Work 1 SC in the same space
  • SL ST in the next space
  • *Work a petal in the next space – 2 DC, 1 SC
  • SL ST in the next space*
  • Repeat around until you’ve worked 5 petals
  • Join to beginning petal at the CH 2
