This Tiny Crochet Flower can be whipped up in just a few short minutes, and makes a cute addition to virtually any project.
Today we’re back with another free pattern as part of the Floral Wreath CAL. This time, our free design is for something that I am simply calling the “tiny flower”
This miniature crochet bloom is actually made in two pieces-the main flower piece and the center- and the whole thing can be whipped up in just a few minutes. The yardage you need to crochet one of these is very minimal, and like all of the patterns in this series it would make a great stash buster when making lots of flowers. Or, if you just want to make one or a few of these, they would make a great accent on pretty much any projects.

About The Crochet Mini Flower
The official gauge for this project is 10 rows and 9 stitches for 2x2in using dk yarn and an e/3.5mm hook. However, I would like to stress that it is NOT critical to exactly match that gauge in order to successfully crochet this tiny flower(or any of the flowers in this series for that matter).
You can easily create this daisy using other weights of yarn. 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, this tiny flower is only about one inch 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 tiny flower uses up to 2 yards needed for color 1(for the whole flower piece), and less than half a yard needed for color 2(for the center piece).
- An E/3.5mm hook
- A tapestry needle(this is optional optional, but good for weaving in ends(link to weaving in ends post).
This tiny flower is worked in the round, but uses very basic stitches and would be suitable for a beginner to try.

In color 1
Setup: ch3 or 4 sts and ss in your first chain to make a very small loop. OR, alternatively, create a magic circle.
Round 1: *ch5, sc into the center of the loop* Rep 9x(10x total). SS into the bottom of the first ch5. Bind off.
Switch to color 2
Create a magic circle, leaving a generous tail. Ch2, and then sc4 into the magic circle. Ss in to the top of your ch2 to close the round. Bind off, leaving another generous tail at the end.
Using the ends from your small circle, place it into the center of the flower, and tie the ends securely on the other side.
