Crochet Flower Applique – Free Pattern


I love a quick and easy crochet pattern, don’t you? These sweet little flowers take 15 minutes to make and use such a small amount of yarn. Originally published for free in my Ravelry shop back in 2019, I have finally had an opportunity to spruce up the pattern and take some new photos! These motifs are great little accents to add to other projects. Bags, blankets, hats…you could even use them for a spring or summer themed bunting. How cute!
