Tiny Flower Blossoms: A Free Quick Crochet Pattern

I have a doozy of a simple pattern for you. These adorable mini flowers take all of three minutes to make and use somewhere between 1-4 yards (The exact amounts depend on your gauge). 






This is a one-round instant gratification project. The size is a little bit bigger than a quarter.





Depending on how much yarn you have, hook size, and how many petals you make, they can end up very different. The differences add to the eclectic, handmade feel. 





I used yarn scraps between less than what I estimate is four-ish yards (left) and just under a yard (far right). So when I say you can use the tiniest scraps, I'm not exaggerating. 




They are addictive; before you know it you'll have a whole meadow of tiny blossoms.

You read that right.  Fifteen-hundred yards.  So I feel slightly vindicated in this delay. 



I considered waiting for a more seasonable time to release this pattern but decided against it. I've worn it quite a few times and always get tons of sweet compliments. I hope you enjoy it! 




Before we get into the pattern, let's talk about the Diamond Stitch. 




Although the repeat is 8 rows, those rows repeat themselves so it's essentially made up of 5 rows. The repeat is a, b, c, d, e, d, c, b, a. In the back panel, this is rows, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.  Both of the front panels begin with d, so t…
