Crochet flowers need not explain themselves. We know they’re beautiful, versatile and look pretty darn glam as wedding bouquets. So the next time someone asks you why you’d want to make crochet flowers, send them a link to this post – our list is all the justification you’ll need.
Not only have we found 40 crochet flower patterns for you to try but this list of (mostly) free crochet patterns also includes ideas and ways for how to use them. Embellish a swimsuit or create a crochet paper clip, but be warned, crochet flowers are almost as addictive as granny squares. Happy hooking!
