How to Crochet a Flower

I often return to my favorite tried and true patterns when I’m making gifts.  I know how the end result will look, I know how long it takes, and I don’t have to think too hard about what I’m doing.  But it gets boring to give the same gifts over and over again! Sure, you can change up the yarn or the hook size, but it’s still the same hat you’ve made 20 times before! Well, here’s a really easy solution–crochet a flower to spruce up that old hat! It takes me less than an hour to crochet a flower, and it’s a good way to use up yarn scraps that aren’t long enough for much else. It’s really difficult to explain with words or through a pattern, so I put a video on YouTube.  It’s much easier to show how to crochet a flower than it is to tell someone how! Use it to add some style to a tablet sleeve!

The perfect crochet accessory!
