The Large Happy Crochet Flower is a great flower to put as a decoration an that favorite hat or scarf. The flower is very easy to make and takes very little yarn. These will be cute in different colors on a handmade afghan. They are really very attractive when made up. Great pattern for beginners.

You can never have enough patterns for flowers because you can put them wherever you want them. They just compliment everything. I love them mostly on hats, sweaters, scarves, and on some types of mittens. I also think they would look great on a crochet cup warmer, just to add a little touch to let someone you know you care about them. Thanks for sharing.

I love these little flowers! I just hope I can make several of the same! I made a strap shoe on an Amigurumi doll once, and I had to frog it several times to get them both the same. (Frog means to tear it all out and do over! Not uncommon but sure disappointing!)
