Crochet Flower Motif Pattern (No Sew)

These Crochet Flower Motif’s are an idea I’ve been thinking about for some time. The idea came because I want to work up a valance for my kitchen window.

I originally had the idea to work out some sort of granny square that I could sew together but today when I started working on a granny square pattern I worked up this round flower and couldn’t seem to figure out how to make it square.

I tried a few different things but really am stuck on this round flower so I decided to try to find a way to work them together without having to sew pieces together. I’m not sure about you, but I’m not one for sewing pieces together at all.

The great thing about this pattern is that you can make it into all kinds of different things, like a scarf, a bag handle, an afghan or a valance, it’s totally up to you to decide!

Crochet Flower Motif (No Sew) - Dearest Debi Patterns

Yarn: Red Heart Soft Touch Yarn

Hook: US G6/4.25mm

Gauge: 1 flower =  3″

Sizing

You can work out your own sizing by using the provided gauge or you can use the directions I’ve included for a scarf of a baby afghan.

Scarf pattern: Follow directions until told to stop. This is a great stash buster pattern.

Baby afghan: A crib sheet  is usually about 52″ x 34″ so you could work 12 flowers long by 18 rows of flowers.

Notes: For each flower I crochet over the beginning tail for the first rnd of work then trim the tail. Do not join rnds unless specified. I am working with 7 colours so I have them in a bucket and am using the center pull yarn.

    How do you get these patterns to print? Whenever I click on something that appears to be a link to the pattern, all I get is directed to a site that won’t let me back to this page. Please help!!

    I have been looking for a “join as you go” kind of pattern for a scrapghan! I also hate sewing things together and sewing things onto other things. I was looking at another “yo-yo” like pattern and it was not “join as you go”. My thoughts were “I may be crazy but I am not that crazy” lol. Thank you for this! If I get some time I think my “bin of balls” is going to hopefully get used up!

    I was wondering if this pattern could be used to make a bigger afghan and not a baby one? How many rows would I need to figure if I wanted to do this one as a full size afghan? Can anyone answer that question for me?

    • DearestDebi says

      A full(double) sized comforter is approximately 84″ x 90″ so about 28 x 30 motifs.

      A queen sized comforter is approximately 90″ x 95″ so about 30 x 32 motifs.

      A king sized comforter is approximately 106″ x 98″ so about 35 x 33 motifs.

      The great thing about this pattern is that you can always add more motifs to any side of your work until the desired size is achieved. :)

    Hi Debi, I am making these flowers and decided to print the pattern so I could go outside and enjoy the weather. This is the first time I’ve seen the CLEAN PRINT option. It is wonderful! Thank you for having it on your page. I hope to see it on every webpage everywhere! It will save a lot of paper and ink. Keep up the beautiful work. Barb

    I have always liked join-as-you-go motifs as I don’t really like sewing either. The only problem I have is making sure they are right way up when I join them as I usual find them wrong way up after I’ve already added a few. It looks great anyway.

    • DearestDebi says

      I think I just about joined them with the wrong side facing up a few times, maybe I did, but luckily it’s one of those things that probably only we would notice. :D
