In less than 40 stitches, you can whip up this cute circular crochet flower with just the right amount of ruffle!
Ready to make something adorable?
In just a few minutes, you can easily make today’s crochet flower design, which easily works up with a little bit of a ruffle. A tiny separate piece for the center means that the finished flower is very 3-dimensional without using any complex stitches.
The ruffle flower is part 5 of a 10-part crochet pattern series that is ALL flowers and leaves.. The floral wreath CAL is the original project that I created to feature all of these flowers, but they can really be used on any sort of project and stand alone as a collection. All 10 designs are quick and simple to create, but and this ruffle flower adds a lot of whimsy. Enjoy!
Below, you can find all the details for how to access this pattern. It is free today only, including a detailed video tutorial!
About the Crochet Ruffle Flower
The official gauge for this floral series, including today’s project, is 10 rows and 9 stitches for 2x2in using dk yarn and an e/3.5mm hook. It is NOT critical to exactly match that gauge in order to successfully crochet the ruffle flower, but that is the official gauge for anyone who might be interested..
You can always experiment with crocheting this flower in different weights of yarn other than dc. However, I would personally recommend keeping your hook size small enough(compared to your yarn) that the stitches stay fairly tight, so that your daisy doesn’t turn out floppy and loose.
Made with the yarn and hook size that have originally been used, the ruffle flower is 1.5 inches across. Feel free to play with using other yarn sizes and/or hook sizes to get flowers that are larger or smaller.
For each tiny flower that you’d like to crochet, you will need:
- DK yarn- each ruffle flowers 4 yards for color 1(for the petals) and less than a yard of color 2(for the center).
- An E/3.5mm hook
- A tapestry needle(this is optional, but good for weaving in ends.
This flower is worked in the round, but uses very basic stitches and would be suitable for a beginner to try. Be sure to watch the video tutorial below for full details!
Some ideas for creating variations with this pattern might be to use different weights/types of yarn, and to experiment with unusual color combinations!
