To crochet a basic flower, crochet a chain, and join it. Crochet a ring of single crochet, and create petals with double crochet, chain and slip stitches. Crocheting a flower takes roughly 15 minutes and requires yarn, a crochet hook, yarn needle and scissors.

  1. Create a ring

    Crochet six chain stitches. Join the ends of the chains together using a slip stitch.

  2. Widen the ring

    Crochet two single crochet stitches in each chain for a total of 12 stitches. Join the final single crochet stitch to the first with a slip stitch.

  3. Start the first petal

    Crochet a chain of three to join the next row. Make two double crochet stitches in the first single crochet stitch.

  4. Complete the petal

    Make a chain of three, and then slip stitch in the same single crochet stitch. Slip stitch in the next two single crochet stitches.

  5. Crochet five more petals

    Create another chain of three, and then repeat the pattern of double crochet, chain and slip stitches. Make a total of six petals.

  6. Finish the crocheting

    Before making the final slip stitch, cut the yarn at roughly 2 inches. Instead of pulling a loop, pull the tail all the way through, and then pull tight to knot off the end of the crocheting.

  7. Weave in the ends

    Thread the tail of yarn into the yarn needle. Weave the tail through the single crochet stitches. Snip off the remaining end.
