I’ve crocheted a lot of flowers similar to this one – for all kinds of purposes. I love to wear them as brooches, but they’re fun to sew onto hats, headbands, jackets, or anything else you’ve made or purchased. Carolyne has created a great tutorial that will have even the rankest beginner turning out splendid flowers to use everywhere! Get her tutorial and pattern here.
I’ll work up a bunch of these in some scraps of variegated yarn (my personal favorite) and pin them to my jacket lapels. How will you use them?
My secret little tip, which I’ve probably shared before, is to simply use a small safety pin to affix the flower. No glue, no sewing, no sweat!
