Easy Crochet Six Petal Flower
This flower motif is a simple flower pattern. It is quick to make and perfect for an embellishment on a hat, scarf, or headband . The petals are open rather than filled in with crochet stitches. I think this gives the flower a very light and airy look.

These dainty flowers would also look very pretty in a vase. How to accomplish that? Years ago, I made some paper flowers and attached them with hot glue to wire that florists use to keep flowers standing straight. Then I wrapped them with this green sticky tape. This could easily be done with these flowers; a grouping of them with coordinated colors would be so cute. If you are interested in doing this with your pretty flowers, you can get all your florist supplies needed to create this right here.
Another Dainty Crochet Flower Embelleshment
A few months ago, I was using up yarn scraps again. I made little flowers. However, the petals were filled in. I have a photo of them below. Here is the link to that easy crochet pattern.

Easy Crochet Embellishment
Along with making lots of little delicate flowers, I also made a variety of headbands with the lovely yarn. Once all the yarn was used and videos were made, I just started pairing them together. If you would like to see how the headbands with the flower embellishments turned out and get the pattern plus the tutorial, you can find that here.
Yarn for Flower
You may recognize some of the yarn colors used in both crochet flower patterns. However, they are all made from Caron Simply Soft. This open petal flower style has been made with chunky yarn too. Note: this will result in a larger flower. I used mine to embellish a crochet basket. They are so cute throughout the house. Here is that pattern if you are interested. I have a photo below too.
Changing the Number of Flower Petals
The beginning chain will determine the number of flower petals in this pattern. With this pattern, you will complete six flower petals. If you prefer less, start with less chains. If you prefer more, start with more chains. This pattern uses six chains to start; therefore, you will end up with six crochet petals.
Directions: Beginner Crochet Flower
Any kind of left over yarn. In this case, I used various colors of Caron Simply Soft yarn.
Size H Crochet Hook
CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
SL ST = Slip Stitch
Start with the Magic Circle. Then CH 1 (this does not count as anything) This step is shown in the video. However, this is a written tutorial with photos on how to complete the magic circle.
Inside the magic circle, complete 6 SC. Pull yarn tail to close up the circle. SL ST into beginning SC.
[CH 4, SC into next SC]. Repeat between the [ ]. Complete this six times. End with a SL ST into the fist SC.
Pull the yarn through the last loop. Your crochet flower is ready to use. I leave the beginning and end yarn pieces a bit long until I know how I am going to use the crochet flower. Once the yarn is weaved in, cut off the excess yarn piece.
