Free Crochet Pattern…Button Flowers

These cute flowers can be used for just about anything, from an applique on a garment, a sweet little brooch or pin, or making the top of a gift extra beautiful.

One pattern is all you need…the larger flower is made using a bigger hook and the smaller flower on top is made with a smaller hook.  Top them off with fun buttons for a super cute finishing touch.

  • Cotton yarn (yarn shown is Sugar ‘n Creme in “Mod Blue” “Grape” and “Hot Green” and Peaches ‘n Creme in “Bright Orange” “Bright Pink” and “Sunshine”
  • J (6.0 mm) Crochet Hook
  • H (5.0 mm) Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Buttons of your choice


  • Finished flower measures 2.5 inches across


Both flowers are made the same way.  Make the top flower with the H hook and the bottom flower with the J hook.

Ch 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3 then work 11 dc into the center of the ring.

Round 2: Chain 3 and in the first space, work (2 dc, then a sl st).  *Skip the next space.  In the next space work (3 dc, then a sl st) all in the same space.  Continue from * to end for a total of six petals. Fasten off with a slip stitch.

Weave in all ends.


Stack two flowers together with larger being on the bottom and smaller being on top.  Seam together with the tapestry needle using scraps of same colored yarn.  If you like, you can also glue the flowers together using fabric glue or hot glue.  Attach button(s) to top center by either sewing or gluing.

  1. Thanks for the simple flower. I needed something quick and easy. This is going to be a necklace for my 4 year old great niece, in her favorite colors: pink and purple.

    1. P.S. I used worsted weight yarn for bottom flower and sport weight for the top flower. 1 button on top. Thanks tons for this little flower.
