Crochet brooch (free pattern, tutorial)

About a month ago me and my daughter started thinking about ‘Thank You’ presents for her teachers. And we came up with an idea to make a brooch  for each of them.

Crochet Brooches

To make one of these You will need:

  1. Crochet thread (I used Bergere de France: white, caruso, pink, violet, yellow);
  2. Crochet hook (I used 1.75 mm);
  3. Flower stamens;
  4. 1 pin;
  5. scissor, needle.

Firstly, crochet 3 white circles following the pattern below. I didn’t want the brooch to get too big, so I crocheted only 6 rows.

Then, I crochet the 7th row of each circle in single crochet with different colour thread(row 11 in the pattern above). And using white thread crochet one small circle following the pattern above (end up with 3th row).

Now fold 1/3 of your flower stamens in half (so you will know where the middle of the stamens is) and stitch them in the middle of each big crochet circles (see picture below).

Then make a flower: fold it, wrap sewing thread few times and stitch it to secure (see picture below).

After that, stitch all three flowers together. Then stitch a small circle on top of it and add the pin in the middle (see picture below).
