Crochet Pattern: 5-Petal Flower

5 Petals Flower main

I created the crochet pattern for the blue 5-petal flower that I attached on “The Dazzles” after some requests from readers. And that was weeks ago, I have a tough time writing the crochet pattern as it involved 2 layers on the petals, front and rear, and they then join-up by single crochet the outer row along the petal. I want to make sure that my instruction is clear for you all to understand. So…. in order to make it easier to understand, I photographed and showed some of the easy-to-get-confuse instructions in pictures :)

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
sl knot = slip knot
slst = slip stitch
flo= front loop only
hdc= half double crochet
dc = double crochet
fo = fasten off

1. Yarn (suitable for 3mm crochet hook)
2. 3mm crochet hook
3. Small amount of poly-fill
4. Decoration rhinestones and beads
5. Elastic hairband and brooch pin

Finished dimension:
approx. Diameter 115cm (4.5”)

Crochet Pattern:
beg sl knot
r1 – ch10, join with slst on the first ch to form a base ring
r2 – ch1, 15sc in ring, join with slst on first ch to complete r2

Petals (5 clusters)
*(all crochet stitch is 1 crochet to 1 stitch, no increment, no decrement)
r1 – ch16, turn
r2 – 1sc on 2nd st from the hook, 2sc, 1hdc, 7dc, 1hdc, 3sc, 1sc flo onto the 1st st of the centre ring, turn
r3 – 1sc on 2nd st from the hook, 1sc, 1hdc, 9dc, 1hdc, 2sc, turn
r4 – 1sc on the 1st st from the hook, 1 hdc, 9dc, 1hdc, 3sc, 1sc flo onto the 2nd st of the center ring, turn
r5 – 1sc on the 2nd st from the hook, 1sc, 1hdc, 9dc, 1hdc, 2sc, turn
r6 – 1sc on the 1st st from the hook, 2sc, 1hdc, 7dc, 1hdc, 3sc, 1sc flo onto the 3rd st of the center ring, turn**
Repeat ** 4 times to make 5 petals on the front layer
Repeat ** 5 times to make another 5 petals on the rear layer
fo and hide the yarn end into the flower.

Join the 2 layers of petals by single crochet the outer row together. 15sc on side, 3sc on tip, 15sc on side again, move on to the next petal. Stuff small amount of poly-fill into the petals before completely join-up both layer. Repeat 4 times for the other 4 petals.

Sew some rhinestones and beads onto the petals to decorate it. Sew the elastic band and attach the brooch pin at the back of the flower to make it into hairband-brooch combo.

Note: The yarn I am using is woven type acrylic fiber which has a little elasticity and will not fray, you can try other yarn to create a different style on it.

crochet1Get ready to crochet the petal.

crochet2Make 16 chains follow the pattern to crochet row 2 until you reach “flo” instruction.

crochet3flo – Front loop only.This is the single crochet of the front-loop-only of the center ring. I used the front loop for layer 1, and reserved the back-loop for the layer 2 of the petal.

crochet5This is 1 layer of 5 petals and I am ready to make the second layer by using another loop of the stitch.

crochet6This is the rear side of the 1st layer. See the loop that I reserved (yellow pointer), now I am going to use this loop to crochet the layer 2 of the petal.

crochet7Completed first petal that has 2 layers :) Continue to crochet the rest until you have all 5 petals for layer 2.

crochet8Time to join-up both layer with single crochet the outer row along the petal.

crochet9Stuff some small amount of poly-fill to make the flower a little filling to add dimension to it. Continue to crochet until you reach the end of the petal, move on to the next petal. Skip the stitch that crocheted on the center ring.

5 Petals Flower 2

Now you have completed the bare 5-petal flower, you can decorate it with beads and rhinestones to glamorize it (like the blue one I have made).

Attach an elastic hairband and a brooch pin at the rear side of the flower by hot glue, and the flower is ready to charm your apparel.

Have fun making one today!!!!

    flowers are very beautiful, very charming, congratulations, I liked very much, and wait some new models !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Hi liked your flowers, only the description is not very clear how to knit! could I ask you to place the scheme, thanks!

  15. Wow, how beautiful! Just found your site as I’m surfing around. Love your work. I was wondering if you could share exactly which thread you used. I’d love to make these and want them to look just like yours. I’m biting at the bit to git it a try. :)

    You do beautiful work and thanks for sharing!


    • Hi Laina, this is not the usual thread meant for crochet. I am not sure what is the name or brand of this thread either. I found it in the craft shop I used to go and bought a bunch of it in loose packing. Traditionally, some used it for embroidery/cross stitch on the bamboo mesh.

  16. OK, thanks. I’ll see what I can find. Does it need the elasticity?


  17. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful work. I tried out your beautiful 5-petal flower and I am so happy with it. I have posted it on my blog and linked to your website. Thanks again.

  18. Thks, actually it is red but I think it is the light effect as I took the pics at night.

  19. Please may you tell me the Brand or where I can buy that type of Yarn you used in this Tutorial… I have been looking for years here in the USA and have not seen it… I highly appreciate you help… Thank you in advance

    • Hi JenniferG, I think it is not common in USA and it doesn’t come with any branding on the packaging. I am afraid I really can’t give you any information more than the picture shown in the tutorial.

  20. Thank you for your intention to try to Help I appreciate it

  21. I found the picture of these crocheted flowers awhile back and loved it. I used the picture as my profile picture. I am just now coming across the FREE pattern for these, I cant wait to get started… thank you sooo much for sharing this with everyone!! :)

  22. I’d love to take a stab at this pattern, I have made stars before. What are the directions before getting started on the petals?

  23. Could you tell us please, how to begin the flower from the beginning? What makes up the center ring? How many stitches did you use around the center ring before you began making the flower petals. These are SO pretty! Thank you for sharing them with us.

  24. Цветок бесподобный!Очень хорош!Спасибо!

    Translation (by Google):
    A flower of unparalleled! Very good, Thank you!

  25. Well, good grief! Once I sat down and actually LOOKED at the pattern, my question was answered. If at first you don’t succeed, follow the instructions. LOL

  26. I absolutely adore these, thank you soo much for sharing your lovely work ♥

  27. Hey…I saw your pattern and I really liked it. Just to let you know I blogged about it on my site. Its a really nice design….

  28. Do you have a video on how to make these?

  29. Здравствуйте! Очень понравился ваш цветочек, но не в силах разобрать Ваше описание, т.к. не владею языком должным образом… Не могли бы Вы выложить схему вязания, или сделать эту страничку на русском языке?

    Translation (by Google):
    Hello! Loved your flower, but can not make out your description, because do not speak the language properly … Could you lay out the scheme of knitting, or to make this page in Russian?
