Flowers for You

They're flowers! For you. You get it?

Not much gets past my Charlie. He said, “Hey, Mommy – those flowers are not real! See? They’re made of yarn!” I thought it was a fun idea, and I like how it turned out.

Flowers for You


  • About 5 yds worsted weight yarn per flower
  • H/8 5.00 mm hook
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Yarn needle


Rnd 1: Ch 6. Sl st in first ch to form a ring. Ch 1, sc inc in each ch around. (12 sc) Join rnd with a sl st.

Rnd 2: *Sk 1 st, make 5 dc in next st, sl st in next st. Repeat from * around, finish off. Weave in all ends.

Roll the end of your pipe cleaner a bit, and poke it through the ring from Round 1. You’re done!

Just a little yarn...

I think it would be fun to use the last few yards of yarn from special skeins to make a flower, and collect the flowers together in a vase. Silk, wool, alpaca, angora and mohair blossoms together in harmony? Beautiful.

    Hi Melissa! I just wanted to let you know that I loved your flower pattern! I made a whole bunch for my mom on Mother’s Day and she loved them! Thank you for having the pattern free :)

    These flowers are great. I think that if you used red yarn, with black and green pipe cleaners, it would make them look like poppies!
