Supplies You’ll Need to Make Crochet Flowers

To make crochet flowers, you’ll need just a few supplies: yarn, a crochet hook, and a yarn needle to sew in the ends.

  1. First, choose your yarn. Most crochet flower patterns use DK or worsted weight yarn. If you want to make smaller flowers, you can even use fingering weight yarn or crochet thread.
  2. Next, choose your hook. If the pattern doesn’t tell you what size hook to use, check the yarn label for the recommended size.
  3. Then, grab a yarn needle. You’ll need a yarn needle – sometimes called a darning needle or a tapestry needle – to weave in the yarn ends after you’ve finished crocheting the flower.

Best Yarn for Crochet Flower Patterns

You can crochet flowers with a variety of types of yarn. And since crochet flowers are such small projects, they’re great for using up small amounts of scrap yarn that you have in your yarn stash.

If you’re choosing new yarn to make your flowers, look for DK or worsted weight yarn in pretty floral colors – like yellows, oranges, pinks, and reds. Don’t forget about green yarn for the leaves, as well.

You can crochet flowers with acrylic yarn, cotton yarn, or wool blend yarns. If you’re not sure which yarn to choose, read the pattern to find the designer’s recommendations.

Favorite Ergonomic Crochet Hooks

Most crochet flower patterns use hook sizes between 3mm and 5mm. If you’re looking for a great set of ergonomic crochet hooks, I always recommend this set of hooks by Clover.

How to Use Crochet Flowers

Once you’ve made a garden’s worth of crochet flowers, you may be wondering what to do with them all.

Here are a few projects ideas that you can make with crochet flowers.

  • Crochet Flower Bouquet: Make a bouquet of crochet flowers. You can use dowel rods or floral wire to make stems for your flowers. Then, arrange them in a vase or mason jar.
  • Coffee Cup Sleeve: Decorate a coffee cup sleeve with a crochet flower or two.
  • Crochet Flower Hair Clips: Use hot glue to attach crochet flowers to clips or bobby pins.
  • Crochet Flower Wreath: Arrange crochet flowers on a grapevine or floral foam wreath to hang on your door.
  • Crochet Flower Headband: String flowers on a long piece of yarn to make a crochet flower garland.
