Springtime Crocheted Flowers

Awhile back I promised links to some of the crocheted flowers that made up my Springtime Garden Wreath. I can’t remember exactly which patterns I used to make this collection, but here are eight of the dozens of patterns I used to make this. There was the quick crocheted flower, a 5-petal flower, and a 7-petal flower, This is an excellent scrappy project for bits and pieces of leftover yarn.


Here’s the wreath as I was putting it together. The flowers are pinned on the foam base side-by-side. Here’s a double flower, and a floating flower I referenced even though I didn’t crochet any layered flowers. Some of them look like double flowers because I placed a small flower on top of a larger one. Here are some Teeny Tiny Flowers, I have used.

I used some of the long tails to stitch the flowers together with the same yarn.

Other times I used a contrasting yarn to make the attachment.

These “roses” were not made in the round, but rather in a strip that was wound up after I finished it.

Find one of the rose patterns here.  I think the variegated yarn makes it a lot more interesting than if I’d made them all out of solid colors.

I needed some leaves to fill in the blanks, and they were easy to create after I followed a couple of patterns.


Here is one leaf I used, and here is another. It was fun to mix and match different greens in the leaves.

And in case you’re wondering, it took several hours for me to weave in all the tails and get this tidy and ready to hang. I really need to do that as I go instead of waiting until I have to do them all at once.

Ugh!!! So tedious.

It’s Memorial Day weekend and I’d planned to have a patriotic wreath up by now, but, as usual, time slipped up on me.

It won’t be crocheted this time and if I have some of the heavy-weight fusible stabilizer handy I will get started tonight.

Thanks so much to all the crocheters out there who wrote the patterns I used to make this wreath.  I’m not a very good pattern-follower, but your instructions made it easy. After I figured out the techniques I was able to go off-script and make all these flowers without getting bored and abandoning the project.

Anybody else do that?

Have a great and safe holiday weekend.

    I love this Jan! I never thought to crochet a wreath for my door. I usually just go with silk flowers. Putting this on my to-do list – I should probably just go straight to fall flower designs since that’s when it will likely be done! LOL 😀

    Great idea, Tami! Lots of leaves in gold, orange and red. I think I’ve seen a pattern for an acorn somewhere.
    I intended to do silk, I have two boxes full of dismantled flowers, but couldn’t make enough of them work together to fill the wreath. Two boxes is enough, so I decided to keep crocheting flowers.

      You are welcome! I can barely follow a pattern so there’s no way I could write one. Instead of reinventing the wheel I’m happy to link to someone who’s good at that sort of thing.

    Glad you’re happy with it. Love the idea of a wreath in crochet flowers. I’m new to it and just learning thanks to lucys attic site. Personally I do much prefer the appearance of work done in pure cotton or pure wool which is a shame as acrylic is so much cheaper but hey ho, i justify it as its such a pleasure. well done on your blog and thanks for sharing it all with us.

      Thanks! I really like working with the cotton. It’s a good thing because I have a huge collection of colors now. Maybe I better start on some fall leaves for an autumn wreath.
      I’ve found some bamboo and hemp I want to use too but it is much more expensive so I’m not buying it until I know what I’m going to use it for.
      Thanks for reading and getting in touch!
