Sometimes a girl just needs a big, beautiful pink flower to brighten up the day. And when that flower can be hung on the wall? Well.. AMAZING! Meet Mrs. Beautiful: This Crochet Wallflower!
Have you seen those big metal flowers in the decor section of your favorite store? I don’t know who came up with the idea of big beautiful pieces of metal art, but its totally my vibe! And what I really adore are big metal flowers! Somehow that stark contrast of hard metal lines and soft petals gets me every time. Like a perfect flower, frozen in full on open bloom. Gorgeous.
I also love that they are called “wallflowers”.. because.. HELLO.. they are flowers and they go on the wall.. so of COURSE they’d be called wallflowers! Brilliant, right?
And then, like many of my design inspirations go.. I thought.. what if… WHAT IF I made a crochet version with soft ‘oh I wanna touch them’ petals and made it mountable. So I could even make a few and hang on the walls of my blog space/craft room. The walls in this happy space are a soft butter color that reminds me of a sunny day. So of course, a few beautiful blooms were in order!

The crochet wallflower is worked in two parts. First the base is crocheted in a continuous circle, working in the back loops only. Then the yarn is reattached in the center and the delicious petals are crocheted. I used a Caron Cotton Cake in Frosted Pink which appears to be a challenging color to come by these days. But there are plenty of other lovely Caron Cotton colors to choose from . Or pick another worsted weight #4 yarn to substitute. I can’t wait to see YOUR wallflower!
Here is what you will need:
- US G6/4.0 mm crochet hook. (Did you know you can purchase my go-to hooks on Amazon?)
- 1-1/2 oz Worsted Weight Cotton or Cotton Blend Yarn, sample used Caron Cotton Cake in Frosted Pink
- 6″ Plastic Canvas Circle
- 3/4″ Plastic Ring (for hanging)
- Tapestry needle and scissors
Resources and tutorials you may find helpful in following this pattern: Crochet Abbreviations, US to UK Crochet Conversion Chart. Find links to stitches on the “Tutorial” menu: Getting Started will show basic stitches used in many patterns and Crochet Stitch Dictionary shows our growing collection of crochet stitch tutorials. I really like to use the invisible seamless join when finishing pieces that get sewn together.
