How To Crochet a Simple Flower – Absolute Beginners


Hi everybody in this video I’m going to be showing you how to make a really easy flower and this video is going to be for absolute beginners so it’s going to be a pretty slow video, so I warn you now because one of the first things I wanted to make when I first started crocheting was flowers so all you’re going to need for this video is some yarn, and I’ve chosen some DK / Light worsted weight yellow yarn and a hook that goes well with your yarn because I’m using a light worsted weight yarn, DK yarn, I’m going to be using a 3.5mm crochet hook that’s an E hook. And you’ll also going to be needing some scissors and a yarn needle but these are optional really. Right, ok, so let’s begin. So, the first thing we’re going to do is, we are going to take our yarn and we’re going to create a slip knot first and to make a slip knot, all we do is we wrap our tail end, this is our tail end of our yarn, and we’re going to wrap that round our fingers, our first two fingers we’re going to cross them over the other side, so just wrap them round and cross them over, and I use my third finger to hold that into place so make sure they’re crossed over. then we get our hook, and we go underneath the first part of yarn use our hook and grab the second piece and we’re just going to bring that up through, bring that underneath. then we let go of everything and then just pull up and that creates our slip knot. I’ll show you that again. I have done a video in more detail on doing a slip knot but I thought so you can see it all in one place so we just wrap that round our two fingers cross over, and hold it in place then we go under the first then just grab the second piece so it’s crossing over and coming underneath, so it’s kind of knotting itself. Pull that up and then just let go of everything else making sure to keep that on there and then just pull the main piece of yarn pulls it tight and there we go, we have our slip knot Ok, so what we’re going to do now for our little flower is we’re going to chain seven so just put our hook underneath our yarn and just pull it through the loop on our hook to create a chain and we’re going to do that seven times so we hook our yarn, and I’m keeping it taught/a little bit tight in my fingers there just to create some tension not too tight just bring that through the loop on your hook each time so that’s two and wrap it over again.. and bring that through and underneath bring that through four five so we’ve got five chains now and all we’re doing is bringing this yarn we’re just pulling it through the loop on our hook six like so and when you’ve got seven 1..2..3..4..5..6..7 that’s seven chains when we’ve got seven chains what we want to do is, is we want to put our hook through our first chain so, we find our first chain, so we’ve got seven… 1..2..3..4..5..6..7 so there’s our first one and you see that little hole there we just want to put our hook through that hole and I’m just catching the top piece of yarn you can ignore the rest on the bottom we just want to catch that top piece we put our hook through that chain catching that top piece, and we’re going to bring our yarn through that loop and the loop on our hook so we’re bringing in through the two loop, the chain and the loop on our hook and there that creates a slip stitch by doing that just bringing it through the chain and straight through our loop that creates a slip stitch and also it’s created a little loop like so so you’ve got your seven chains and they’re connected at the beginning and they’ve created a little loop and you’ve got a hole in the middle and it’s that hole in the middle that we’re going to work some stitches into to make a flower so the first thing we’re going to do, is we’re going to chain another four stitches so we’re going to go back to our chaining so we just, keeping, using our fingers, our hands, to keep it a little bit tight we just going to chain four so we’re going to grab our yarn and pull it through the loop on our hook again so that’s one and again… two.. three and four like so, so you’ve chained four again so it looks a little bit like that and then what we’re going to do is we’re going to work a treble crochet stitch and that might sound a bit scary and a bit big but it’s very simple because what we do is we wrap our yarn around our hook a couple of times, like so so you end up with three loops, you got your main loop and then you’ve wrapped your yarn round once to create the second loop and then twice and keep it fairly loose so it moves up and down fairly easy, you don’t want to too tight but you don’t want it like really loose because it will come un-done and again using hand to keep it tight what we’re going to do is once we’ve wrapped it round twice we’re going to put our hook through the centre of the little loop we created, so that big hole in the middle we’re just going to put our hook through there and we’re going to grab our yarn and bring it up from there. so we’re just going to bring it through that loop like so, and obviously if you are keeping this tight with your other hand it makes this stay together a bit better, so now you should have four loops, you’ve got your main loop then you’ve the two you’ve wrapped round and then the one you’ve just pulled through so we’re going to yarn over again hook our yarn again making sure to keep our tail out the way so hook our yarn again and we’re going to bring it pull it through two loops so pull it through that first one and the next one like so. so we’ve got three loops left then yarn over again then we’re going to pull it through two loops again so we’ve got two loops left then yarn over and pull through the last two so we end up with one loop again that we’re working with and that finishes our treble crochet stitch so it’s quite a big stitch that you’ve just learnt maybe you know already? he he like I said, this video is going to be a fairly slow video so do excuse me if I’m patronising your crochet skills if you know what you’re doing but I wanted this video to be for ABSOLUTE beginners so do bear with! so we’re going to another two of these treble crochet stitches and we’re going to do that twice more so again, we wrap the yarn round twice round our hook, keeping a little bit tight in our hands like that so it doesn’t unravel and then we put our hook back through that centre loop in there and we’re going to grab our yarn and pull it through like so. so we’ve got our four loops I might just hold that in place as I move my hands around and again we just wrap the yarn over our hook and we’re going to pull it through the first two loops like so and you want to keep these loops fairly loose so they move up and down so you can pull them through because if these are too tight you’ll find it very difficult to pull them through so do keep them loose enough so they move up and down and what we do next is we yarn over and we pull through the next two loops and as you can see when I move the crochet hook I actually curl it under and I twist the hook down so it’s pulling that yarn, keeps it on the hook so I twist the hook round to face downwards as I go through my stitches and as I come out the other side I twist it back up to face upwards again and that controls the stitch so we’re going to do one more of those treble crochet stitches so we going to yarn over twice go back through that centre loop and grab our yarn and again twisting that hook down and then up and we’re going to grab our yarn and pull through again, twisting the hook down through the first two and then up yarn over, down…through the next two and up, at the end. so we don’t loose our yarn, and down… and through the last two and up, like so. and that creates our third treble crochet stitch then to finish off our first petal, we just chain four 1.. 2.. 3.. and … 4 and all we do to finish off our first petal is we’re going to do a slip stitch into our centre ring and to do that we don’t yarn over or anything we just go straight through the loop and grab our yarn pulling it up and then we just pull it through our loop straight away we don’t do anything else just pull it straight through the main loop and then straight through the loop on our hook and that creates our first petal, like so! and we’re just basically repeating that those same steps another four times so we’re just going to chain four again 1.. 2.. 3.. 4.. and then we’re going to do three treble crochet stitches so we’re going to yarn over twice keeping it a little bit tight so it doesn’t go too loose hold that like that and I’m going to put my hook through that centre loop and I’m going to grab the yarn, twist the hook down and up and I’m just going to hold those in place while I move my hands around and then we yarn over and pull through the first two yarn over, pull through the first two always remember to pull through the first two yarn over, pull through the last two like so and we’re going to do that twice more so yarn around your hook twice and go through that big hole grab the yarn and pull it up yarn over pull through the first two make sure to twist your hook up again and then twist the hook down as you go through your stitches, and then up and twist your hook down as you go through the last two and then up like so always making sure to keep that yarn on your hook and wrap around twice for our last treble stitch go back through and up I find it easier to hold the flower when I do yarning through the stitches as it holds the stitches in place go through the first two yarn over go through the next two yarn over go through the next two like so, and I’m just pushing all the stitches along and we chain four 1.. you notice my hook twists down and then up 3.. and 4 then we just do a slip stitch to bring our petal back down and all we do is literally we just go through the loop and grabbing our yarn and pulling it straight through the loop on our hook like so and there we have our second petal like so and we’re just going to do that another three times and you can pull your tail end a little bit another three times let’s move that tail end out the way if it does annoy you, you can always trim it down he he it keeps getting in the way! so we’re going to do that another three times so we chain four again 1.. 2.. 3.. 4.. and there’s no set way to hold your hook you just do what feels right for you because there are lots of so called rules out there on how to hold a hook but you hold it how you want to, what feels comfy for you because at the end of the day you just want to be able to crochet so, that’s the main thing so don’t worry too much about how you hold the hook I think the only thing I recommend is to just using these three fingers to, just to keep your yarn a bit tight to help with your tension but .. we’ve chained four so we’re going to go back to our three trebles crochet stitches so just yarn over twice go through that main loop and just twist our hook down and up and then I’m going to bring these fingers round to hold my flower into place so I can see my loops and I’m going to yarn over, grab that yarn again bring it through the first two and up grab your yarn bring it through the next two grab the yarn and pull through the last two and there’s our treble crochet stitch so do that twice more you see my fingers always coming in to hold my project through two pull through two through two move our stitches over yarn over twice for our last one back through, grab our yarn pull it up and I hold these with this finger while I move these to hold my project grab our yarn and bring it through two grab our yarn bring it through two grab the yarn and bring it through two there we go we’ve done three so we just need to chain four now chain 1.. 2.. you see my fingers are always holding the project 3.. and 4 and we need to do that quick slip stitch which is basically just … keeping that tight going through the main loop, grabbing the yarn and then just again holding the project with my fingers to see that loop, bring it up through that loop on the hook straight away and there’s our third leaf and it looks like a three leaf clover at the moment he he so we’re just going to do that twice more so again we chain four 1.. 2.. 3.. 4.. do yarn over twice for our treble crochet stitch you might have to move your stitches over to make sure there’s enough room and then we go through there grab our yarn and I’m going to use these fingers to hold that into place this finger while I move these fingers to hold my project and then yarn over, pull through two yarn over, pull through two and yarn over, pull through the last two so we’re always working with the one stitch do that twice more [music plays] [music still plays] just finishing up the last petal by chaining four 1.. 2.. 3.. and 4.. I need to move these stitches over so we’ve got the space and then we’re just going to three treble crochets as normal back through that loop grab your yarn pull through two pull through two pull through two yarn over twice grab your yarn pull through two pull through two pull through two and the last one… pull through two pull through two pull through two and we need to chain four 1.. 2.. 3.. and 4.. and then we just slip stitch so we go in grab our yarn using this finger to hold it and hold our project bring it straight through the loop on our hook and there’s our little flower! like so so if I just bring that up you should be able to see your little flower so there we go he he so what I’m going to do is trim trim off my yarn I’m just going to pull that if I can find which ends moves.. pull that up and you can use that to hang or whatever you want to do just pull that tail end to bring in the middle circle a little bit and there we go and there’s our really little, simple flower just worked it into a loop of chains and I hope as a beginner you managed to follow along and even if you are not a beginner and you’re used to crocheting, I hope you liked the pattern just a little simple flower and I’m going to do a few more of these really simple flower projects for you guys so I hope you enjoyed that little tutorial and I shall see you soon for some more crochet fun thanks for watching guys! byeeeee
