Where I live, we’re starting to see colorful flowers popping up everywhere – with this tutorial, you can bring that blossoming joy to wherever you are, indoors or out! These puffy crochet flowers have an extra 3-D pop that sets them apart from standard flower patterns. Whether you’re new to crochet or already a pro, you’ll be able to use this simple technique to create a sophisticated depth using ordinary yarn or string.

Once complete, these little flowers can be used to embellish all sorts of things. They can be seamlessly added to a larger crochet or knit project, of course. But they can also be glued onto any object – such as pens, picture frames, magnets, or key chains.

For a super easy hair accessory, slide a bobby pin through one of the yarn loops and pop it right into the hair. If you have a little more time and materials, sew or glue it onto a barrette, alligator clip, or headband for a more versatile, longer-lasting hair accessory.

Try grouping together a few crocheted flowers in either similar or contrasting colors to create a more complex accessory or decoration!

What you’ll need to make a crochet puff flower

How to crochet a puff flower

1. You will use one color for the center of the flower and one for the petals. Starting with the center color, make a slip knot and chain 4.

2. Work a slip stitch into the first slip knot to form a ring with the chains.

3. Chain 1 and then work 12 single crochet into the center of the ring.

4. Finish this round by working a slip stitch into the first top-stitch of the round. Pull out 2-3 cm (or about one inch) of yarn and cut it off of the skein.

Take a different colored yarn for the petals and start with a slip knot. Pull the slip knot through any one of the top stitches of round 1.

5. Work 3 chains from hook.

6. Yarn over and pull through the yarn once through the same stitch.

7. Pull out the loops on the hook and make their lengths even with the chain 3’s length.

8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 one more time into the same stitch.

9. Now, repeat the process into the next stitch 3 times. While doing so, keep the hook inside all the loops.

10. Yarn over and pull through all the loops.

11. Bring the loose ends of the loops together and work a slip stitch as firmly and neatly as possible.

12. Pull the second chain into the first chain like a regular crochet stitch.

13. Work 3 chain stitches.

14. Continue crocheting the second petal as you did in steps 6-12 for the first one.

15. Continue to crochet following the petal making pattern and complete all the petals around the center. It will take about 6 petals to create a full flower.

16. After forming all the petals, work a slip stitch into the initial stitch of the first petal. Pull out the yarn about an inch and then cut it off from the skein.

17. The loose thread should be moved to the reverse of the crochet flower and secured with a few stitches through your crochet work

Your crochet puff flower is complete! Add it to your favorite accessory! Sew or glue a pearl bead to the center if you want to dress it up a bit. I hope you enjoyed!
