About this Pattern
If you’re looking for a unique way to add the finishing touch to your project or you’re looking for a flower fit for a bouquet or brooch, you’re in the right place. Our loop stitch flower works up quickly and with only scraps of yarn.
With this project you’ll get to practice the loop stitch, a unique stitch that brings this flower to life. It’s crocheted in a flat piece and rolled to create the many flower layers. Pair it with your favorite medium weight yarn and you’re good to go.
Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies, abbreviations and instructions to walk you through the entire process.
- Approx 20 yds; Any medium weight yarn (Pictured: Caron Simply Soft)
- Color A – Ocean; approx 12 yds
- Color B – Pistachio; approx 8 yds
- 5.5mm Crochet hook (flower)
- Yarn Needle
FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.
