Crochet Flowers

I have an idea.....and it involves....crochet flowers. Now it's ages since I crocheted (probably years!), but it's like riding a bike..yes?
I trawled the internet looking for a pattern or a tutorial for a cute simple (it had to be simple.I am happiest with instant gratification). Now I did find some great stuff,especially on utube but nothing exactly what I was looking for.

Thank God for our little crochet group meeting,which met on tues night...Emily our master crocheter,hands and hook quicker than Concorde, showed me How To.

I got this fab yarn (trying to break a lifetimes habit of calling all yarn Wool) in pippablue (of course,sure where else would I go).


And made these...
My idea is to make children's fleece hats and have a cute detachable(handy for washing!) flower.

Made these too from 'fluffy' yarn....mmmm did not turn out quite how I had imagined...bit of a blobby flower...


As usual I am linking up this weeks 'makes' to a few fun blog parties....lush friday,simply designing,amy lou's sew and tell,

The crocheted flowers in the first picture are lovely - but you are right the fluffy ones are a bit weird!! :)

What cute flowers! Love the versatility that you get from making them removable.

I have picked up the hook again too after a long break. I am really enjoying it. Your cute crochet flowers will make a lovely accent.

Yvonne said...

I really wish we loved closer. I would so like to learn to crochet! Beautiful little flowers.

Kristen said...

Cute crochet flowers! So neat and you can use them in so many ways. I bet they would look too cute on matching fleece scarves!

Hey Andrea,

Couldn't find an email addy for you, so I'm contacting you this way. I just awarded you the Versatile Blogger award. :-) Read about it on my blog.

Hi there, I found you through a mutual friend, Michelle. What a great blog you have and what wonderful craftiness you have come up with. Your crochet flowers are wonderful. I have a book with some patterns for flowers, my goal was to make some for my 19 yo daughter. As she says, flowers are hot this year! I will be following to see what else you come up with and will probably link up to your Friday party.
