20 Free Patterns for Crochet Flowers & What to Do with Them

by Shehla Ahmed

When I started crocheting, one of my favorite things to make were crochet flowers. They were quick, easy, and they gave me a chance to try different techniques in bite-sized patterns. If you’re not seeing the image you came for, it might be because I’ve updated this post! This has been one of my favorite posts, but some of the patterns were no longer available. So I’ve updated it with even more free crochet flower patterns, new images, and better-written patterns that you’re going to love!


P.S. All these patterns and images belong to their original owners (linked). I didn’t create these; I just wanted to share their lovely work!

The Beginner’s Guide to Crochet FREE Ebook


I love crocheting flowers and these are some of my favorite patterns, especially for beginners. Before you go, though, I want to share some tips with you. When you’re just starting out, there are a few things I always like to recommend and one of them is to find simple patterns that you can complete in a day or two. It’s more difficult to stay motivated and encouraged when you start with big projects, so smaller ones like flowers or baby items make it so much easier to learn and get the “instant” gratification. And, as I said earlier, bite-sized patterns like this help you learn new techniques and skills without committing to something that’ll eat up your time.



I put together an ebook to teach anyone how to crochet called The Beginner’s Guide to Crochet. It’s filled with tutorials, written instructions, and videos, to show you the basic steps you need to know. With 12 basic tutorials and 12 beginner-friendly patterns (also with video!), you’ll have it down in no time. There are also some handy resources in the book too! You can get your free copy of it by clicking the image above.


Use the RIGHT tools!


The second thing I like to recommend is a set of really good crochet hooks. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to shell out a ton of money to get top-of-the-line hooks, but it is important to work with quality tools. These are my favorite budget crochet hooks. I love the quality of them and they’re so comfortable to use. Because I crochet so much, I eventually upgraded to a set of Clover Amour Hooks that are a bit more expensive, but totally worth it. Choose whichever set works with your budget!



To help you keep track of all your crochet hooks and the different sizing methods, I created a free printable cheat sheet! Click below to grab it.



I hope you enjoyed this roundup. If you did, please share it with others! And if you subscribe using the box below, you can get blog updates delivered to your inbox once a week with new free patterns, tips and access to the subscriber-only resource library!

I would like to make the little flower pot, but your pattern does not have any instructions on how the “soil” is supposed to attach to the pot. Would you please clarify?
Thank you!

Shehla Ahmed March 27, 2020 - 4:41 pm

Hi! The pattern is from Sewrella and it seems she just sewed the flower/soil part to the pot. I would take a matching color and stitch it on with a tapestry needle. I hope that helps!

I recently ran across your website quite by accident. I signed up a few days ago. I have tried to get the ‘Freebies’ but it won’t allow me to. Any ideas what I may be doing wrong. It asks for a password but I haven’t found where I can create one.Thank you.

Shehla Ahmed November 23, 2018 - 4:29 pm

Hi Lila!

Thanks for signing up. Check the welcome email you received when you signed up, the password is there in pink. Enter that password into the freebies page and you’ll be able to see everything! Let me know if you have any trouble.
