Patterns: Crochet Flower Brooches

Hello everyone!

Thank you very much for making my day with all your sweet words on my flower brooches and my posts so far! That really meant a lot to me, I do appreciate!

I made these flowers using some patterns from Japanese books and they are all in chart form. I've just "translated" them into US term for your convenience (as I guess most of you may prefer written patterns, hoping I'm right!). So, here you go - please let me know if there's any mistake:

1. Cream daisy flower: 
(Make two alike in different colors)

Magic circle.
Round 1: 5 sc in the loop. Do not join.
Round 2: 2 sc in each stitch around (10 sc)
Round 3: 1 sc in the next stitch, 2 sc in the next stitch (15 sc in total)
Round 4: * Slip stitch to the next sc, ch 2, 4 dc in the next stitch, ch 2, slip stitch to the next stitch to complete the first low petal. Repeat from * for the remainder (5 petals in total).
Round 5: * Slip stitch to the 1st chain of the first ch-2, sc in the next chain, work 1 hdc in the first dc, 1 dc in the same stitch, dc increase in each of the next 2 stitches, 1 dc in the 4th dc, 1 hdc in the same stitch, sc in the next ch-2 space, sl st in to the previous sl st. Repeat from * for the remainder.
Round 6: * Sc in the next sl st, ch 2, 3 dc increase in the next 3 stitches, 1 dc in the next st, 1 hdc in the same stitch, 1 hdc in the next stitch, 1 dc in the same st, 3 dc increase in the next 3 stitches, ch 2, sc in the previous sl st. Repeat from * for total of 5 petals.
Cut the tail, fasten off and weave in ends.

Use a contrast colored thread to sew 2 layers together with petals are alternate to each other. Sew the center as it looks like in the picture.

Crochet a tiny flower to sew it in the center (magic circle, * ch 5, sl st into the loop. Repeat 4 times from * to finish) or just simply sew a button in center to complete the pistil.

2. Other daisy flower in Orange: 

Magic circle, 
Round 1: Ch 3 (count as the first dc), 15 dc in the loop, join with sl st to the first ch 3. (16 dc)
Round 2: Work in back loop only: 2 dc in each dc around (32 dc)
Round 3: Ch 1, sc in the same stitch, ch 5, sc in the next stitch, *sc in the next stitch, ch 5, sc in the next stitch (16 ch-5 spaces in total).
Round 4: * Slip st to the ch-5 loop, ch 2, work 9 dc in the ch-5 loop, ch 2, sl st into the loop. Repeat from * for the remaining loops. (16 petals in total)
Cut the yarn and fasten off.
Round 5: Join new thread to the front loop created at round 2, repeat the instruction for round 3.
Round 6: repeat round 4.
Fasten off.

Make a tiny flower (magic circle, * ch 9, sl st into the loop. Repeat 9 times from * to finish) to sew in center. Add button in center to make the pistil look a bit different.

3. Colorful flower with many layers of petal:
Magic circle,
Round 1: Ch 1, 16 sc in the loop. Join with a slip stitch to the first sc.
Round 2: Ch 1, sc in the same stitch, ch 3, skip one sc, * sc in the next stitch, ch 3, skip 1 sc.
Repeat from * for the remainder. Join with a sl st to the first sc (8 ch-3 loops in total).
Round 3: ch 1, * 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc into the loop. Repeat 7 times total from * (8 petals total)
Round 4: ch 1, * front post single crochet around the first sc in round 2, ch 4. Repeat 7 times total from *. Join with sl st to the first FPSC (8 ch-4 loops in total)
Round 5: ch 1, * 1 sc, 1 hdc, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc into the loop. Repeat 7 times total from *.
Round 6: ch 1, * front post single crochet around the previous FPSC in round 4, ch 5. Repeat 7 times total from *. Join with sl st to the first FPSC (8 ch-5 loops in total)
Round 7: ch 1, * 1 sc, 1 hdc, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc into the loop. Repeat 7 times total from *.
Round 8: ch 1, * front post single crochet around the previous FPSC in round 6, ch 6. Repeat 7 times total from *. Join with sl st to the first FPSC (8 ch-6 loops in total)
Round 9: ch 1, * 1 sc, 1 hdc, 3 dc, 1 tr, ch 2, 1 tr, 3 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc into the loop. Repeat 7 times total from *.
Round 10: ch 1, * front post single crochet around the previous FPSC in round 6, ch 6. Repeat 7 times total from *. Join with sl st to the first FPSC (8 ch-6 loops in total)
Round 11: ch 1, * 1 sc, 1 hdc, 4 dc, 1 tr, ch 2, 1 tr, 4 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc into the loop. Repeat 7 times total from *.

Complete this pattern you will have 5 layers of petal, change color for each if desired.

*** To turn them into a brooch or a hair scunchi:
Cut a circle of felt fabric or crochet a circle with sc for 7 rounds and sew in place in the back of the flower.
Here is a pattern for a circle just in case:

Magic circle,
Round 1: Ch 1, 8 sc in the loop. Do not join.
Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around (16 sc). Mark the first sc with a contrasting color maker.
Round 3: 1 sc in the next stitch, 2 sc in the next stitch (24 sc)
Round 4: sc increase in every 3 stitches (30 sc)
Round 5: sc increase in every 4 stitches (36 sc)
Round 6: sc increase in every 5 stitches (42 sc)
Round 7: sc increase in every 6 stitches (48 sc)
Round 8: sc increase in every 7 stitches (54 sc)
Skip 1 stitch, slip stitch to the next stitch to join.
 
Attach a brooch pin if you want to have a brooch, or a pony tail if you  want to have a hair brunchi.

 
 ♥ Enjoy, and Happy hooking!!!






 Thank you for stopping by, hope you all a very Happy Weekend!!!

Tams said...

Thanks for sharing the beautiful patterns. I'm a bit confused on the cream daisy though. Rounds 5 and 6. Round 5 I ended up with 10 stitches plus 2 slip stitches for each petal. Round 6 you work into 8 stitches plus the 2 slip stitches leaving me with 2 extra stitches. Did I do something wrong or which ones are supposed to be skipped? Thanks

lovestitch said...

Hi Tams,
Can you read a crochet chart? It would be easier I will send you a diagram for the cream daisy, as I'm not sure at what stitches you are stuck. Please let me know. Thank you.
All the best, LS

momo said...

This morning, I was going through some boxes and found some silk flowers I had forgotten about. There was one that I thought I would try to make a crocheted version of. Then, I was looking at images on Google and saw a hat picture that led me to your site. When I looked at your flower brooches, low and behold, I saw one that looks almost identical to the silk flower I wanted to copy; your cream daisy flower! Now I don't have to spend time experimenting to get it. Thanks for sharing!

lovestitch said...

@noelani: You're welcome! I'm happy you like it! I look forward to seeing yours!
Best wishes, LS
