Make-It-Monday ~crochet flower pin~

This is the flower

Today for make-it-Monday we’re gonna be crocheting a little flower pin. If you don’t know how to crochet, look here for instructions.

You will need

  • a size G crochet hook (you could also use an F)

    This is the type of pin you will need

  • two balls of yarn in your preferred colors (I used yellow and purple)
  • a pin back, the kind with one flat side
  • a yarn needle
  • scissors
  • a hot glue gun
  • a clothespin

With yellow and 4mm hook, ch 6. Join with sl st to form ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, work in ring (3 sc, ch 3) 5 times. Sl st on 1st sc to join. Fasten off yellow.

Rnd 2: Attach purple on 1st sc, ch 3 (counts as dc), *skip next sc, dc in next sc, (dc, 7 tr, dc) in ch-3 sp, dc in next sc, repeat from * around. Join on top of beg ch 3. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Flower center
With smaller hook and yellow yarn, ch 3. 11 dc in 1st ch, join on top of beg ch 3. Fasten off leaving 10 inches for sewing. With the wrong side out, stuff the center with a small amount of scrap yarn, and sew up the edge of the stitches while gathering it to close. Pull tightly and secure with a few more stitches. Sew to center of flower and weave the rest in.

To finish, dab a bit of hot glue onto the back of the pin and press it onto the flower. Use a clothespin to keep the surface of the pin and the flower in contact with each other until the glue has dried.

  2. So pretty! I need to *relearn* how to crochet so this might be just the project to get me started. Thanks for sharing it! 🙂
