Wow anyone with a finishing touch that looks like no other crochet flower you’ve seen before. Use the small size for a baby project, the medium size for a hat or use all three for a layered look.

If you’re looking for a unique way to embellish your project, the spiral crochet flower is the way to go. With three size options to choose from you’ll be able to accent projects of all shapes and sizes.

With this quick project, you’ll get to practice your slip stitching skills as well as see how a project worked in rows can end up circular in shape. Each size follows the same general steps, with the difference being in the series of stitches that make up each petal.
