I just made A Crocheted Simplicity’s Batman Easter Basket for my son and he LOVED it! Very easy pattern to follow. I even didn’t have to drag my feet on the handle. lol It was very easy to understand and easy to do. I decided I didn’t want anything character for my daughter, as she really doesn’t know anything other than Elmo, and frankly, I’ve WAY outdone Elmo in this household so far this year. lol So, I am crocheting my daughter a plain Easter basket in Lavender (go figure… lol) using the Batman Easter basket pattern as a base for reference and I am planning to just embellish it all over in spring flowers and maybe some butterflies or dragonflies, bees or some other spring type appliques. I sat down to crochet one flower and they just kept coming! I could not stop until I got some creations out. I still have a dragonfly, butterfly and bumble bee in there somewhere, but unfortunately, I also have a few orders… so…. lol I decided there are ENTIRELY too little REAL free flower patterns on Pinterest (in English) and I would like to give it a go. Of course, you can change colors, nix the yellow centers or add them if you’d like. Be creative! Go down or up hook sizes for bigger or smaller sizing. I’ve included sizing on each flower and a hook size to make it easier to size these. I hope you enjoy! If you find a mistake, please feel free to bring it to my attention. As always, I accept constructive criticism and if you enjoy the patterns, please let me know in the comments!

This first one is my ABSOLUTE favorite. I used Red Heart Petal Pink and an H hook.

Round 1: Ch 4 (counts as first dc, ch1) (Mark 3rd ch as first st)
(Dc, Ch1) 5X in 4th ch from hook, join to first st in the round. (6 dc, 6 ch 1 sps)

Round 2: Ch 4 (counts as first dc, ch1) (Mark 3rd ch as first st)
(Dc, Ch1) in each st, join to first st in the round. (12 dc, 12 ch 1 sps)

Round 3: [Sl st around the post of the next dc, ch 3, (Dc, Hdc, Dc) all in next ch 1 sp]
Repeat [] 11 more times to create 12 petals.
Sl st to first dc post to join. 


Round 4: (Worked in front of last round, this is a base for the inner petals) 

[Ch 2, sl st to next dc post]
Repeat [] 11 more times to create 12 petal bases.
Sl st to first dc post to join. 

Round 5: [Ch 1, (Sc, Hdc, Sc) all in ch 2 sp, sl st to next dc post]
Repeat () 11 times to create 12 inner petals

If you’d like this one to have a yellow center, then complete round 1 in yellow. Color change to Pink in join of round 1. Or if you aren’t familiar with how to color change, just FO and sl st in at the join.

This one is very similar to that last one, with subtle changes. Instead of an H hook like the pink one, I followed the same pattern above, except I used an F Hook. I used Red Heart Bright Yellow and I believe the name of this dark purple Red Heart yarn is Amethyst. The only thing I did differently with this one is, the yellow center, (instructions for how to get the center yellow above) and I changed some of the numbers. Here is a written out pattern for this one.
Center-
Round 1: Ch 4 (counts as first dc, ch1) (Mark 3rd ch as first st)
(Dc, Ch1) 5X in 4th ch from hook, join to first st in the round. (6 dc, 6 ch 1 sps)
Either color change to purple in the join of round 1 or FO yellow and sl st in with purple in join of round 1. 
 
Petals-
Round 2: Ch 4 (counts as first dc, ch1) (Mark 3rd ch as first st)
(Dc, Ch1) in next st, (Dc, Ch1) 2x in next st, join to first st in the round. (15 dc, 15 ch 1 sps)

Round 3: [Sl st around the post of the next dc, ch 3, (Dc, Hdc, Dc) all in next ch 1 sp]

Repeat [] 14 more times to create 15 petals.
Sl st to first dc post to join.


FO

So, very similar, but with subtle changes and absolutely a different flower. 

*********************************************************************************

Next, I did a Daisy. If you need a Magic Circle Tutorial, there’s one here. You will start using Red heart Bright Yellow and an F hook.


4 inches in diameter

Center-
Round 1: 6 sc in mc, join to first sc (6)


Round 2: Ch 1 (2sc, sc) Repeat () around, join to first st. (9) 

Either color change to white in the join of round 2 or FO yellow and sl st in with white in join of round 2. 

Petals-
Round 3: (Ch 8, and then working backwards along the ch 8, sl st, sc hdc 5x, sl st to same st as ch 8 is made in, sl st in next st to start next petal) 
Repeat () around, join to first st. (9 petals)

 The next is a pin wheel. I really was reaching for this one, and did a lot of fiddling but it turned out REALLY cute!  I will use this one again! For the Blue Flower, I used Red Heart Blue yarn and Bright Yellow Yarn and I just went up to an I hook.

3 1/4 X 3 inches

3 1/4 X 3 inches

3 1/4 X 2 1/2 inches
3 1/4 X 2 1/2 inches

Pink Pinwheel flower: 

(Red Heart) Baby pink and Bright Yellow and G hook

Round 1: 8 sc in mc, join to first st (8)

Either color change to Pink in the join of round 1 or FO yellow and sl st in with pink in join of round 1. 

Round 2: Ch 1, sc around, join to first st (8)

Round 3: From here we’re making petals. Petals are done in rows. Complete Petal Rows 1-7, then repeat 3 more times.
Petal Row 1: Ch 1, 2sc in next 2 sts, (Leave remaining sts undone and continue with petal) turn (4)
Petal Row 2-6: Ch 1, sc across, turn (4)

Petal Row 7: Ch 1, sc, dc, dc, sc (4) sl st in next st of round to complete this petal and start a new one.

For the orange, pink and the red flowers, I used the same pattern, I just changed it up a bit for these as well. 

3 inches in diameter
2 3/4 inches in diameter
2 1/4 inches in diameter
I did the Pink flower using Red Heart Petal Pink, Bright Yellow. I color changed from yellow to pink in the join of Round 2. (or you may FO and sl st in with new color at join). 

For the Orange, I color changed from Bright Yellow to Red Heart Pumpkin at the end of round 1 and I used a G hook.  

For the Red Flower, I used an F Hook and I color changed at the end of round 1 from Bright yellow to Red Heart Red.

Round 1:             6 sc in mc, join to top of first dc (6)
Round 2:             Ch 1, sc in same st, ch 1, (sc in next sc, ch 1) around; join to first sc (6 ch1 spaces)
Round 3:             (Working in each ch 1 sp)
                                Sl st, ch 1, sc, ch 2, sk next sc
                                (Sc in next ch 1 sp, ch 2, sk next sc)
                                Repeat () around and join to first sc (6 ch 2 spaces)
Round 4:             With right side facing, sl st into the next ch 2 sp
                                Ch 2, 3 dc, ch 2, sl st in same sp
                                (Sl st, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 2, sl st)
                                Repeat () around in each ch 2 sp and join to first sl st (6 petals)

 I have decided not to include this pattern in this compilation. I use it in many of my patterns. I was not entirely impressed with the way this turned out with sc rounds of a lighter color anyway. If you would like to purchase my pattern may do so. Here are some of my patterns that use this pattern:

Pretty Petals Sun Hat
Stunning Shells Beanie

 *********************************************************************************


I have included a few leaf patterns as well. I have SUCH a hard time finding one that I like, that is in the English language and that looks nice and is easy to follow. Hopefully these give a few options and are all those things above. 🙂 

2 1/2 X 2 7/8 inches

Big Leaf: I used Red Heart Spring Green and an F hook

Row 1: Ch 8, and working backwards along the chain you just made, sl st, sc, hdc, hdc, dc, dc then all in the last st, tr 3 and sc.
 

Row 2: Turn the leaf and work along the other side of the original chain. (You’re just doing everything backwards.) [sc, ch4, tr2x] all in the same st, then dc, dc, hdc, hdc, sc, sl st. Sl st in that top point and sc, ch 1, sc in the same st to make a bigger point. 

Sc around the outside of the leaf. You will need to just skip the first 3 sts of the ch 4 and join to the first st. 

 FO

 *********************************************************************************

2 X 1 1/4 inches

Single Leaf: I used Red Heart Spring Green and an F hook

Row 1: Ch 8, and working backwards along the chain you just made, sl st, sc, hdc, hdc, dc, dc then all in the last st, tr 3 and sc.
 

FO

 *********************************************************************************

Double Leaf: I used Red Heart Spring Green and an F hook

Row 1: Ch 8, and working backwards along the chain you just made, sl st, sc, hdc, hdc, dc, dc then all in the last st, tr 3 and sc.
 

Do Not finish off like in the single leaf pattern. instead ch8 again and finish row one again.
