Free Pattern: Button on Flower

I love making a hat or headband for gifts and including a bunch of flowers in a variety of colors. It is always a big hit.

Fast & Fun flower


Small amounts of yarn in various colors for flowers
Size H hook, or your choice of size for larger or smaller flowers
Yarn needle

Directions for Button-On Flower:
1. Ch 5, join to create a circle. DO NOT pull to close hole. Determine how big your opening needs to be for the button. I leave it how it is for a ¾” button.
2. Ch 9, Sc into the loop, Repeat, making 8 loops total.
3. Pull loops forward and working behind row 2, Ch 3, Sc around the original circle from the beginning, in the middle of each “Ch 9 loop”. Ch 3, Sc between next loop. Repeat, making 8 loops total. Join with a sl st to first ch.
4. Ch 3, 3 Tr, Ch 3, Sl st in each loop around, making 8 petals. Fasten off.

Directions for Flower without opening in center:
1. Ch 5, join to create a circle. Pull taught to close hole. OR I prefer to start with a ch 5 magic loop because you can pull the hole completely closed.
2-4. Repeat as above.
