Okay, maybe not exactly a giant crocheted rosette flower, but definitely a very large crocheted flower. You know, the kind of flower that will certainly make a cheerful statement worn on a hat or a winter coat right about now. So I do hope that you crochet, since everyone could use a little wardrobe pick me up, especially one that's as simple and quick as this one! Of course, you don't have to make your flower in turquoise (this one is for my daughter) a more neutral color like gray or creme would be gorgeous too.
The reason that this flower is so simple is that it's made by crocheting a strip and then rolling up the strip and sewing it all together. And of course, if you use chunky yarn, or a few strands together like I did, you can make flowers just about any size, even to cover a pillow front, how about that?
- chunky yarn, or in my case 3 strands of worsted weight yarn
- size 9mm crochet hook, or the hook size to suit your yarn choice
- large-eyed yarn needle

If you're looking for another idea for making a flower of this kind, check out my rosette flower headband, which uses a similar, yet slightly different pattern. Have fun adding some crocheted flowers to your life in no time! And stay tuned for a few more crocheted flowers and the projects that go with them. Don't know about you, but winter in full force all I want to do is crochet!
