I'm thinking that these flowers would be really cute made into a panel to use as a curtain, wall divider or hanging art. They are so cute and multiple colors would be adorable for a little girls' room. They could also be made up in her favorite colors. Crochet cotton thread would also be nice textures to make them from.

I do like the idea of using bunches of these to create a table runner. It would be so very pretty in the spring and summer months. Use the same flower to create your coasters to add to the table dressing. I appreciate that it allows us to use whatever hook size and yarn that we want and it doesn't matter!

Magic Crocheted Flower is easy and fun to make. You can make them in all colors. I use them to put on hats, scarves and almost anything you knit or crochet. There are a lot of different flower patterns out there, but this one is one of the cutest I have seen. I have made quite a few of these and have enjoyed doing them.

Could you just up the number of chains by two and do more rows to make a larger flower and perhaps layer them to make a cluster flower?

@patricia5147 07786 46 that should work! I would suggest finding a larger pattern instead, however, since sometimes upping the chains on rounded patterns incorrectly can cause projects to bunch up. Hope that helps! -Kaylee, Editor of

Yes, you could. In fact, this pattern can be adjusted a lot and changes to doilies or cluster flowers and lot of projects. Perfect for wall decor or dream catcher, or put few of them together can be great as a table centerpiece. So simple and so many ways to use it.


HELP!! This is very simple until I get to Step 6, round 5. I have ripped this back several times and made sure I do each step as directed, but it looks nothing like the picture! Its the chain 5 that is messing me anyone else having a problem with round 5? Or have I lost the ability after all these years to read a pattern? Please help...I love the look of this flower.

To Sharon: It looks like round 5 is just like the previous one except you chain 5 rather than 3 between "flower petals". Hope that helps.
