The crochet Ranunculus flower, is my final crochet flower pattern for this series. I want to say a huge ‘Thank You’ for everyone who has supported me on this amazing journey & given me a feeling of community while we have been in isolation these last few months. Your support, e-mails and kind words have been wonderful pick me ups when times have felt a little difficult. And through your support, Moara Crochet has been listed as the no.53 in the list of the top 100 crochet blogs 2020 on Feedspot.
This is the fifteenth pattern in a series of FREE CROCHET FLOWER patterns I have shared with you as many of us have stayed home during lockdown 2020.
My free Crochet Ranunculus 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.
- 2 meters of green yarn of your choice
- 25 meters of contrasting yarn
- Matching crochet hook to your yarn
- Yarn needle
- 50cm florist wire
Gauge: N/A. Use the smallest crochet hook you can with your chosen yarn to create tight stitches, this will help your crochet flower to keep its form & not flop.
Size: Using fingering weight & a 2.5mm crochet hook my flower is 4cm wide and 3cm length.
Notes: The flower is made as a ribbon then turned on itself to create a bloom. The sepals are added below the bloom through the central florist wire.
How to make Crochet Ranunculus
Row 1 –Center Green Yarn: Chain 6, dc in the 4th chain from the hook (count as dc), dc inc., dc, dc inc., sl st into the first dc to create a small circle. Cut tail leaving a long tail, weave the thread down through the last dc & the first dc to create a small cone. Fasten off & weave in your ends.

Row 1. Green Yarn: Magic circle, add 6sc into the centre of your magic circle, sl st into the first st. Total: 6sc. DO NOT CLOSE YOUR MAGIC CIRCLE TIGHT AS YOU WILL INSERT THE FLORIST WIRE LATER.
Row 2. Sc inc. in each stitch, sl st into first sc. Total: 12sc.

Insert your wire in & out of the green central flower piece. Using the long tail from the crochet ribbon, gradually wrap the ribbon around the central green centre adding a stitch as your turn. Continue this motion until you have wrapped and secured all the ribbon creating a flower bloom.
Insert the sepal motif through the central wire as shown below. If you wish you can use the same coloured green yarn to cover your wire to create a seamless stem.
