Spud says (the blog)



Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

Before I went to TNNA, a couple of weeks ago, I quickly whipped up 9 tiny flowers in our Spud & Chloë Fine. My goal was to make my store-bought cardigan a bit more special. I think it worked. A little flower here and there is always a good thing.

If you want to add a flower or two to something or other here is the simple pattern for you to follow.


Yarn: Spud & Chloë Fine (80% superwash wool, 20% silk), a tiny bit in each color, Popcorn #7800, Glow Worm #7801, Clementine #7802, Dachshund #7803, Cricket #7804, Anemone #7805, Calypso #7806, Tutu #7807, Sassafras #7808

Crochet hook: Size 1

Chain 4 and join to form a ring with a slip stitch.

Chain 1. Single crochet 8 into the ring. Join the round with a slip stitch.

*Chain 4. Slip stitch in the next stitch.* Repeat from * to * 9 times to make 9 petals. Join the round with a slip stitch.

Cut the yarn and pull it through the stitch. Weave in the end to the wrong side if not using it to attach to another item

That’s it! How simple is that? Now, I used a needle and thread to stitch my Blooms on my cardigan. If you are going to stitch your Blooms on something you knitted or crocheted leave a longer tail and use that threaded on a yarn needle to whip stitch on. I left the petals free and stitched around the center.

Let me think of all of the things, knit or store-bought, you could flower up in style:

bags, sweaters, hats, blankets, hairbands, headbands, barrettes, buttons (if you made the ring bigger the flower could fit around a buttonhole and the button could pop through the center when buttoned up), scarves, gloves, mittens, dish towels, napkins, etc. This list could go on forever.

Have fun. Flower power rules!

    Thanks for this sweet, easy pattern. My mom asked me to crochet corsages for my sister’s upcoming wedding, and I’m currently making several of these little blossoms to fill in around the larger flowers. They’re so simple and quick, and especially small and sweet made with size 10 crochet cotton. :-)

    Thanks for the pattern. I had been looking for a cute flower to embellish my girls flip-flops with. I did a single crochet around the band and they were cute but they were missing something and then I found your flower and that’s just the touch they needed. I love embellishments!!!

    Hi there you angel of good cheer! A dear lady has been teaching four of us ladies to knit. She is moving away
    and none of us are advanced enough to make her some little darlings for her tree. I am having a dinner and I thought we could make your yarn dolls and string them together. I’ll make name tags to add to each doll. Then when she decorates her tree she will always remember (If she uses them)her string of lady friends in Ohio! Thank you. Adele Malley P.S. Is there any chance you could give me directions to make 2-3 inch clowns to decorate kitchen towels? They have to be easy, washable and maybe all white! What do you think? Thank you.
