Daisy Delight Free Crochet Flower Pattern

Flower Pin Free Crochet Pattern
Daisy Delight Flower Pin or Barrette

This flower makes an adorable pin, brooch, or hair clip.  It also looks great as an embellishment on any finished item.   They are quick and easy to work up and will get you a big bang for your buck.  Each flower (in  thread) costs me approximately $0.40 to make and I sell them for $4.00.  That’s a 1000% mark up.  You can’t beat that with a stick.  These are one of my best selling items in boutique settings and they still leave plenty of wiggle room for me to make a profit.

I hope you will love this flower pin free crochet pattern as much as I do!

What You’ll Need:

1 skein of embroidery thread in flower color
1 skein of embroidery thread in leave color (optional)
1 bar pin
1 small (1/4”) button
1.50mm thread hook (you could also use a 1.35 or 1.75)
small wide eyed craft needle
needle nose pliers
scissors

materials needed  pins

Notes:

This pin can also be made using any yarn of your choice.  It will create a much bigger finished flower but is also very cute (I recommend using a slightly smaller hook than what the yarn calls for, I used a 4.0mm for mine).  Use sewing or embroidery thread to attach to pin.  You will

I highly recommend unwinding your skein of embroidery thread onto a floss divider 1st to keep it from tangling as you work

  2. 2sc in every st around.   Join round with sl st <12> (0.5”)
  3. Working in front loops only.  4hdc in 1st st.  1sl st in next st.  *4hdc in next st.  1sl st in next st.  Repeat from * around <6petals> (just shy of 1”)

    step 7 completed
  8. Working in the back loops of the same round, sl st into 1st st and change to the leaf color (insert hook into st, pick up new color and pull the new color through the st).  Cut end of flower color and tie both short tails (one of flower color and one of leaf color) together securely.
    step 8 sl st in back loop   step 8 pick up leaf color   step 8 tie tails
  9. Working with leaf color, 1sl st into each of the next 5 sts.  5hdc, ch2, 5dc in next st.  1sl st in each of the next 2sts.  5hdc, ch2, 5hdc in next st.  1sl st into each of the remaining sts and sl st into 1st sl st to end round.  Fasten off.  Tie the three outside tails together (leaving center/starting tail), and cut short so that it is hidden from the front.  Using long center tail, secure button to center of flower.  You do not have to add a button but you will be able to see bar pin through the center of the flower if you do not.
    step 9 button
  10. Position bar pin in the back center of flower and sew into place using the starting tail.  Weave tail behind pin a couple times to ensure it is secure and cut short.  (check to make sure the pin works before sewing it on, sometimes you will get a defective one).  You will probably need to use the pliers to sew on pin since it is such as small/tight space.
    step 10 secure    step 10

    Love these! Instead of the button center (which is cute) I’m thinking of doing several French knots in a contrasting color. What do you think? I like how you show what the back will look like – nobody does that and sometimes I wonder if I’ve done things right because the back sometimes looks strange. :) Thanks for a great pattern.

      You are very welcome. I think the idea of french knots for the center would look awesome. I’d love to see your finished product. I’m a stickler for making sure the back (or inside) of something looks almost as neat as the front… I HATE sloppy crochet!

Other small gifts that I sometimes include are these cute flower pins/brooches. […]
