For week 10 I am sharing with you how to make a Crochet Pansy flower. The Pansy is the little flower with the colourful face which come in a huge range of bright beautiful colours, therefore you can use any yarn from your stash to create these little flower gems in just a few minutes.
This is the tenth pattern in a series of FREE CROCHET FLOWER patterns I have & will be sharing with you as many of us stay at home through the coming days & weeks.
My free Crochet Pansy pattern is written below with a simple step by step written photo tutorial or if you prefer a video tutorial, I have also made a Youtube video.
- 3 meters white yarn
- 2 meters yellow yarn
- 1 meter yellow yarn
- Matching crochet hook to your yarn I have used a 2.5mm
- Yarn needle
- 30cm florist wire
- Wire cutters
Gauge: N/A. Use the smallest crochet hook you can with your chosen yarn to create tight stitches, this will help your petals keep the form & not flop.
Size: For my flower brooch I have used a 1.25mm hook with lace weight yarn creating a flowers 2cm diameter.
Notes: The flower is worked in the round with the front & back petals made separately then stitched together.
To make my crochet Pansy Flower the Treble Crochet (tr) stitch is used.
