Crochet Puff Flower Free Pattern
Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you a crochet puff flower free pattern. This crochet project is perfect for beginners and is very easy to crochet. This new design for a puff flower is different from my previous puff flower tutorial. It is different but both are equally nice to design. Indeed, this new crochet design is made with chunky yarn, and features five petals, not six.
The video tutorial for this project can be found here:
Crochet Puff Flower Free Pattern: the inspiration
This new crochet puff flower pattern is one of my favorites. A crochet puff flower is such a great way to add depth and interest to a plain crochet project. I love to add some details to crochet designs, and these puff flowers are perfect for this. These flowers are so lovely and feminine, and add a Boho and delicate effect to any project.
I added a number of these chunky puff flowers to the Bella Cardigan, which I released a few weeks ago. I love this cardigan so much! It is a slightly cropped cardigan, which can be made longer if you wish. The chunky puff flowers are added later to the project, and make this cardigan look very beautiful. This crochet project is perfect for beginners, and is definitely one of my favorite crochet designs to date.
Crochet Puff Flower Free Pattern: the yarn
These flowers can be crocheted in any yarn weight/size that you prefer. This means you can use this pattern with chunky yarn, or light3/DK yarn. That is great as these flowers can be crocheted for any project, and are very versatile. I made these flowers with chunky yarn, and I have to say I absolutely love how they look!
These flowers however can be crocheted with lighter yarn. I can’t wait to use this design for another crochet project. I really love puff flowers, and I find these so relaxing to make too. Let me know if you enjoy adorning projects with flowers or jewels for instance. I love to know what you like to crochet, and I also enjoy getting inspiration from you.
Next week I will be bringing to you a new crochet tutorial on how to make a Sontag (a shawl which wraps around a woman’s body and gets tied at the back). These wraps were very popular from the 18th century through to the 19th century, and I can’t wait to bring this project to you. It will be part of my Vintage Crochet Series.
