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.

Tiny Flower Blossoms
- Scrap yarn (weight is not important)
- Crochet hook to match (size is not important)
- Optional: Scissors and yarn needle
- Ch: chain
- Dc: double crochet
- Sl st: slip stitch
- I used a magic ring. If you'd rather not, you can ch 4, sl st to first ch to form ring.
- I found it easier to make the final sl st before pulling the ring closed and then fasten off by making a ch and pulling all the way through.
Round 1: Working in magic ring, *4 dc, sl st* 5x pull ring closed, fasten off. (20 dc, 5 sl st)
For fewer or more petals, repeat from *to* as many times as desired.
That's literally all there is to it.
Below is a list of the approximate yarn weight and hook size used for each of these flowers.
Top row hook sizes (left to right): I, I, H.
Bottom row hook sizes (left to right): G,G,G,F.
Top row yarn weights: Sport, sport, DK
Bottom row yarn weights: Worsted, DK, sock, worsted.
I also experimented with super bulky yarn. The one of the left is made with an N/10mm hook and the one on the right with a K/6.5mm
Both the biggest and the smallest are lovely so you really can use any yarn.
I hope that you enjoyed this pattern. If you'd like a more in-depth photo tutorial or ideas with what you make with your blossoms, let me know in the comments below.
