MATERIALS YOU’LL NEED TO LEARN THE MINI FLOWER STITCH:


 

Crochet Hook:

To follow this crochet tutorial you’ll need a crochet hook. When I crochet I usually use 2 types of crochet hooks. I’ve listed them below:

Knitpro – Symphonie Rose Crochet Hooks – My first choice as of now is the Symphonie Rose Crochet Hooks from KnitPro. They opened my world to wood hooks &  impressed me with their amazing lightness & how they feel in my hand. Even though they’re not padded, they never give me any strain while using them. I’ve only come across them in sets They are available here:

 

  • KnitPro – Waves Crochet Hooks – Are the crochet hooks I use almost as my favorite. They are padded hooks & are comfortable to crochet with.  They are a little heavier than wooden hooks, but the padded comfort is truly amazing. You can purchase these both in sets & alone. They are available here:

 

 

Yarn:

You’re going to need some yarn to follow this crochet tutorial to learn a new crochet stitch. I really do love purchasing my yarn online. Here’s my top yarn resources:

  1. I’m fascinated by how you hold your hook! It looks like a hybrid of knife and pencil hold and I am going to give it a whirl. I use the pencil hold and my thumb hyperextends backwards, which is starting to wear on the joint. Not good coupled with arthritis! Knife hold is too clumsy for me, though I do attempt to use it when I need relief and am not ready to put down the hook. Your style might be doable so thank you for the video. Now I know a new stitch And may have a relief hold in my arsenal to keep me going.

    I’m seeing bags, edgings, blankets, headbands, ear warmers, for this stitch . . . many options. 😉

    • So happy that you like the way I hold my hook. I’m actually left handed & I think this is the reason I ended up holding the hook this way when I learned.
      I hope this way helps you!

      So glad you liked the stitch as well, so many amazing things to make!

  2. I’m having a problem using my Pinterest extension on Chrome and when I try to pin using the app on your site, I get a message stating that the “desription” is too long. Max is 500 characters and yours is in excess of 700. Can you fix that? I have tried to fix my extension using everythhing that Pinterest states to do and it still doesn’t work. Thanks for anything you can do.

  3. I was confused & just wanted to make sure that I am correct…This is regarding step 3 & 4. After the yarn over, you say “you now have 2 loops” and then after step 4 where we draw up a loop from the same stitch, you say “you will now have 4 loops.”
    Are we going to have 3 loops, not 2, after step 3? That is how it makes sense in my head, but I don’t want to be wrong.

    • Hi,

      On step 3, the yarn over isn’t counted as a loop (yet).
      However when we draw up a loop on step 4, it is included.

      This is because yarn overs isn’t always counted as a loop, because they aren’t “closed”.

      Hope this clarifies it.
