Yarn For The Crochet Flower

To crochet flowers you can use any two colors of yarn you have, and these are especially great for leftover yarn and scrap yarn.

If you are crocheting a different crochet pattern and want to use these crochet flowers as embellishments, it’s best to use the same yarn and crochet hook size as the pattern you’re following.

The yarn used on the samples are Basic Stitch by Lion Brand Yarn, a 100% acrylic yarn.

However, you can also use different types of yarn, like cotton yarn, crochet thread or wool yarn.

This easy crochet project is really versatile and you can use it in many ways.

One idea is to make crochet flower bouquets made up of many of these crochet flowers. You can layer crochet flowers into a bouquet and gift it for mother’s day!

Another idea is to make the crochet blossoms with thinner yarn, like dk weight yarn, to make them smaller and attach them to hair clips.

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?

How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.
