Crochet Spring Flower Garland Pattern


I love seasonal garlands. It was hard to take down my Valentine Hearts, but with Spring right around the corner I just had to create a new flowery garland. Hope you all enjoy this pattern! Feel free to message me with any questions. 

Materials Needed:
Yarn: Worsted Weight, assorted colors
Hook: I/5.50 mm 
Darning Needle

Stitches and Techniques:
Magic/Adjustable Ring
Chain
SC - Single Crochet
HDC - Half Double Crochet
DC - Double Crochet
Slip Stitch

Good to know

  • The number of flowers you make will depend on how long you would like your garland to be ... I made 8 flowers.
  • After you have made your flowers, weave in ends and block to help shape them. A light press is helpful too. 

Pattern: 

Flower:
Begin with Magic Circle/Adjustable Ring using Yellow yarn.
Round 1: Chain 2 then crochet DC 11 times in ring, a total of 12 stitches.  Pull the ring tight, then slip stitch into the top of chain 2. Tie off.

Round 2: Switch to color for petals. 

Anchor the new color with a SC ...

Then in same stitch Chain 6, SC, *Chain 1, Skip next stitch, then in next stitch SC, Chain 6, SC*

 Repeat around until you have 6 loops for petals. Chain 1 and Slip Stitch into the first SC made

 DON'T TIE OFF CONTINUE WITH SAME COLOR.

Round 3: You will be making the petals by working out of each Chain 6 loop. Each flower petal will be the same as the first one. So, here we go!

*SC, HDC, HDC, DC, DC, DC, Chain 2, DC, DC, DC, HDC, HDC, SC* 



Now repeat in each of the next 5 loops. Slip stitch in first SC, tie off, and weave in ends!

Viola! Pretty!


  
To Create Garland:
Using Green, chain 25, *Slip Stitch in the top of one of the Chain 2 of one of the petals, Chain 15* repeat** until you have attached your last flower and then chain 25, tie off and you are done! Hang and LOOOOVE!
