I just love finding crochet patterns that are a little big challenging but still totally within the realm of my capabilities. This never ending wildflower crochet pattern is just that – it is a tiny bit challenging, but once you figure it out, you’ll feel so good about yourself and your awesome crochet skills! I have every confidence in you, in fact, I even made a video of me figuring out this pattern and walking you through every step of the way!
If you’re like me, however, you’ll probably need a written pattern to follow. Beneath the video, I’ve written out the pattern for you to follow along with! I just love this pattern, and I love the texture it brings.
I actually saw a crochet flower pillow in a store several months ago, and like a good crochet lady I said to myself, “I could totally do that!” Thus the search began for a pattern I could follow in order to recreate the crochet masterpiece I had seen earlier. I’m so happy to be sharing the pattern with you!
Never Ending Wildflower Pattern
**Note: In the video for the 2nd round of petals I say that it is the same as the first round, but that is incorrect. The pattern below is correct. However, I think you could probably still do a second round of “smaller” petals and then start on the round of “bigger” petals, and have your pattern look just fine. This is a very forgiving pattern!**
Start with a magic circle. Chain 3 (counts as 1st double crochet). Crochet 12 double crochets into the circle and join with a SL ST to 3rd chain of the first double crochet.
1st round of petals: (Crochet in front loops only) CH 2. For each petal – 2 DC, CH 2, SL ST in each stitch. SL ST to next stitch, Repeat. SL ST to base of first CH 2.
Round 2: (Crochet in back loops only) Working in round 1 again, but in the back loops – SL ST to 1st back loop. CH 1. 2 DC in same ST. 2 DC in each ST around. Join with a SL ST to first DC.
2nd Round of petals: (Crochet in front loops only; this round splits up the petal over 2 stitches instead of all in 1.) CH 2. DC in same ST. In next ST, DC, CH 2, SL ST. *SL ST to next ST. CH 2, DC in same ST. In next ST, DC, CH 2, SL ST. Repeat from * SL ST to base of 1st CH 2.
Round 3: (Crochet in back loops only) SL ST to 1st back loop of Round 2. CH 1. 2 DC in same ST, DC in next ST. *2 DC in next ST, DC in next ST, repeat from * Join with a SL ST to 1st DC.
3rd Round of petals: (Crochet in front loops only) Same as 2nd round of petals.
Round 4: (Crochet in back loops only) SL ST to 1st back loop of Round 3. CH1. 2DC in same ST, DC in each of the next 2 STS. (2DC in next ST, DC in each of the next 2 STS) around. Join with a SL ST to first DC.
4th Round of petals: Same as 2nd round.
Round 5: SL ST to 1st back loop of Round 4. CH1. 2DC in same ST, DC in each of the next 3 STS. (2DC in next ST, DC in each of the next 3 STS) around. Join with a SL ST to first DC.
5th Round of petals: Same as 2nd round. To complete flower, SL ST to 1st BLO of round 5. Fasten off & weave in ends!
