So, my flower fetish continues! And this time I thought I would share with you a simple crocheted version.
I’ve never written a crochet pattern down before—so make sure to let me know if it doesn’t make any sense. I thought that this one was simple enough that I could hopefully write it down without confusing you. So here is my crochet pattern writing debut (and seriously let me know if I should give up my pattern writing right now, or if I did okay :-)):
Small Crocheted Flower Pattern:
Yarn: Medium worsted weight yarn (I recommend Caron Simply Soft)
Hook Size: G
Form a magic circle, and work all stitches into the center of the circle.
* ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2, slip stitch. (Repeat from * 4 more times, you will have 5 petals). Tighten magic circle and finish off.
Hot glue a button of your choice to the center of your flower.
After you make your crocheted flower, it is really easy to turn it into a cute little hair clip! Using hot glue simply cover a double prong clip (which can be purchased at a beauty supply store) with ribbon. The flat part of the clip should be the part that will be against your head, and I like to leave this side “ribbon free” so it will stay in baby fine hair. If you are worried about the ribbon fraying just use a little fray check on the ends or a little clear nail polish…
Then hot glue the clip to the back of your crocheted flower.
And Voila. Now you’ve got an aesthetically pleasing hair clip that the humans will go nuts over!
