Hello friends! Today, were working on Tunisian Crochet Geraniums. These little flowers are incredibly easy, and fun to make. I recently made a little bunch of them to add to some summer garments and accessories for my daughter (she is suuuuuuper girly, and loves flowers and sparkles on everything).

You’ll see these little flowers in our upcoming Coquina Chapeau pattern! The tutorial for that pattern will post next week.

Now, let’s talk yarn and hooks here for a quick moment. While I used a DK yarn and a regular 3.75 mm hook, you really can use any supplies you want to create these little flowers. These are crocheted using a Tunisian Simple Stitch, but you do not need a Tunisian hook to make these, as they are not very big so all of your stitches will fit on a regular hook. With that said, i should point out that I am talking about aluminum hooks, not the ergonomic hooks with handles, You might not be able to fit all of your stitches onto those hooks, but if you give it a go, let me know how it works out.

Materials:

Yarn: #3 DK yarn

Hook: 3.75 mm hook

Additional materials: scissors and yarn needle. 



Sizing: This pattern makes a flower that measures approximately 4 inches (10 cm) across. 


Abbreviations:

CH – Chain  

SC – Single Crochet

SLST – Slip Stitch

TS- Tunisian Simple Stitch

RP- Return Pass


The full pattern is available, and includes stitch descriptions for the abbreviated stitches above, photos, and is ad-free!

SC Bind Off: SC into each vertical stitch of the row. Insert hook into the top loop of the third vertical stitch from the hook. Yarn over and pull up a loop, then yarn over and pull through both loops. SLST into the magic circle. 

Once you complete the first petal, CH 7 and repeat all the steps beginning from the Foundation Row and ending with the SC Bind Off. Complete a total of 5 petals. 

After completing the last petal, CH 1, and cut your yarn. Tighten the magic circle by pulling on the center yarn tail, then weave in your ends. 

Optional: Complete the Geranium by sewing across the center of the flower using a different colored yarn. After completing some stitches across the center, sew small stitches along the edge of the center stitches to create a border around the center of the flower.
