This adorable flower applique is shown here in one color, but crochet the first round in a light yellow to give it a realistic and lively look. Or use any color combinations that you find in your yarn stash.
The finished size measures just under three inches wide, which makes it great for hats and headbands, baby blankets or anything else you like.
And the coolest part is that you can stop this flower at round one for a super quick and easy flower as shown below. Or go on to complete all rounds for the flower as shown above. The one above was crocheted in Caron Simply Soft, while the one below was crocheted in Red Heart Super Saver, which is a slightly thicker yarn for a sturdier flower.
