The Crochet Puff Flower is up there with some of my most popular tutorials. It’s easy to see why! These little puff flowers are a labour of love BUT they look totally stunning. You can choose to join them together to make a larger project such as a scarf or a blanket OR you could use them individually to add to something like a crochet hair band. Below you can find the written pattern for the Puff Flowers and you will also be able to find the video tutorial at the base of the post.
What you will need
Yarn used: Stylecrafts Spacial DK
Hook Size: 4.5mm
This pattern is in UK Terms
ch – Chain
ss – Slip Stitch
dc – Double Crochet
dtr – Double Treble
* – repeat instructions between asterisks
() – Paratheses indicates a stitch performed as one
Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions. You can find my EBook HERE.
Foundation (In Lemon): Ch4, insert hook into the 4th chain from the hook and pull through the yarn to create a circle.
Round 1: Ch1, 12dc into the circle, ss into the first chain and tie off.
Attach your chosen petal colour
Round 2: (NOTE: Each petal will be worked over 2 chains)
**ch3, *yarn over and insert hook into the same space, yarn over, pull through and pull up to the same height of the stitch* twice (5 loops on hook) yarn over and insert hook into the next space, *yarn over, pull thorough and pull up to the same height of the stitch* twice. (10 loops on hook) Yarn over and pull through all loops on the hook. Ch2, ss into the next space.**
Repeat pattern from ** to ** until you have 6 petals. ss into chain of the first petal and tie off.
You can sew your flowers together using a darning needle and yarn.

How do you put a border on a blanket like this?
BellaCocoTeamMarch 2, 2021 at 3:58 pm
Hi Leslie You can look at my video tutorial on how to turn the puff flower into a square which is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f90Y85OGkxM&t=1s If you have joined lots of puff flowers together to make one big blanket you can follow the same principles to work along them

Thank you for picking this up; you are right, you should have 11 loops on the hook before you yarn over and pull through them all. Sorry for any confusion and I will have this amended

What a beautiful pattern! I would like to make a baby blanket. Can you pls tell me what colors you used in your tutorial and how many flowers I would need of each color for a baby blanket.

I used Stylecraft Special DK in Lemon, Wisteria, Clematis, Fondant and Candy floss. The amount would depend on your own personal tension and how big you wanted it to be 🙂
