Crochet Happy Flower

In today’s tutorial we’re gonna do an
upgrade to the Be Happy Flower. I got my Bernat Mosaic yarn out. It’s
calling for a 5.0 mm crochet hook also a US ‘H’. Okay, so I got everything out and this is
the actual Fantasy color if you’re looking for something unique and I
thought I try this yarn with this. So this is an upgraded version we’re
just gonna create a slip knot just like so. Okay, slip in our hook and what I
want you to just do is to chain four. So 1, 2, 3 and 4 and now let’s
create the ring and we just go in to the beginning chain and we grab the
material and pulling it through. And you’ll notice that I’m pinching the loose end
to get the loose end with the actual ring together, okay. So let’s move on to our next spot so we’re just gonna chain one and I want you now to single crochet twelve times into the center. So just slipping your hook into the center, grab the material pulling it through,
pull through two. okay. So just going in and single
crocheting so this will be 3 so let’s do that, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 9, 10, 11 and 12. So once I get all the way around you can
kind of shift if it’s growing too much on you. This is just a loose end I’m just gonna put it in behind and I wanna just slip stitch it now to the top of where you started. So try to get both stitches if you can pull it through and
through. So let’s move on to your next layer of
the Be Happy Flower. In the next layer here we’re gonna single crochet yet
again and we’re just gonna go in to the very next stitch available and we’re
gonna slip, a single crochet three times in the same one so that was 1.
this is 2, 3. Okay, so that was three and so then you go to the next one, so look for the next one. So single crochet three more times into the next one. Okay, so go to the next one then three more
times and I want you to do that all the way around making sure that every stitch
that you see gets three single crochet or three single crochets, yes. Okay, we’ll meet back up in the end. You’re
gonna notice that this is gonna be really interesting mix once we get
beyond this rotation and the flowers start to buckle and the Be Happy Flower
will open up right before your very eyes. So three single crochets all the way
around in each one of the stitches. So now I’ve gone all the way around and now I just wanna slip stitch it to the very beginning one that we had. And
you’re gonna notice that the flower is starting to buckle up a little bit and
that’s because there’s too many stitches and one spot and that is what you
exactly need. So now we’re actually halfway through
your Be Happy Flower even though it kinda doesn’t look like it because the
next layer is gonna be the fun one. So let’s now chain up three so 1, 2, 3 and now every stitch you run into I want you to put a double crochet into
the spot. Okay, so I want three double crochet. So the very first one there I’m just putting in an double crochet
and I’m gonna do that two more times because the chain one counts as one
already. And so just look for the very next one you’re gonna see that it’s
tight and that’s okay. Okay, it’s gonna work out for you. Okay, so
three double crochets into each one of the stitches as you rotate around. So in
the first rotation we had twelve but then we put in three into each so then you increase the round to thirty-six and now you’re gonna times thirty-six by three again when you go all the way
around and that’s because you’re trying to create the ruffles that this Be Happy
Flower has. So let’s go all the way around three double crochets into each
stitch. So I now come all the way around and all I just need to do is just slip
stitch it to the top of the beginning one that we did. So the actual the flower
is almost looking very complete you can see it’s actually kind of buckling up
and that is just fabulous it actually looks amazing. So what I noticed with these Be Happy
Flowers is that this is not enough this looks too refined flower is never this
nicely pretty nicely edged. So what we’re gonna do now is that we’re gonna
chain up three so 1, 2 and 3 and go into the very next stitch available and for a
single crochet. So we’re gonna go down okay, so we single crochet and then
chain up again three. So 1, 2, 3 and going down into the next one for a single crochet
and 1, 2 and 3 and then down into the next one for three. And the reason why we’re doing that is
there were now changing the edge from being very refined to actually more of a
ruffling effect that would be more natural looking if it was a real flower.
And we’re just gonna continue to do that all the way around is just 1, 2, 3 single crochet to the next and 1, 2, 3 and actually this yarn is
looking are really amazing for flowers and some really amazing texture coloring
changes that are gonna be really cool. So 1, 2, 3 and down and do that all the way around.
Before I finish off this tutorial, this is what it looks like before you’re
actually um, doing all the ruffling look at the difference of it being really
flat versus doing that chaining. It really is quite significant and it’s something that I’d highly
recommend that you do. It’s a, you know, like anything with creativity you can
always skip steps uh, steps along the way but just um, making these ruffles on the
edge just really makes the effect look amazing. So I’m just gonna keep
going and I’ll meet you up at the end where we’ll finish off this tutorial. Well this is it. I’m almost done I just
got a couple more stitches left. Okay, so we’re gonna come into the
final stitch just like so. But what you need to do instead of
having this gap okay, you wanna actually just make sure you just do a little
bridge over so, bridging over, just chaining three and coming up underneath the other one just like so before finishing off and then therefore you
actually have a very consistent outside when you do that. So let’s grab our scissors. I bet Daniel was
cutting something he shouldn’t have with my crafting scissors. I’m sure we’ve all
been there where people use your scissors for other things like cutting
the wire and the whole nine yards. So I’m just gonna tie everything off
just like so and I’m gonna come in behind of it and I just gonna slip in
my book somewhere behind a string and I’m gonna pull that straggling
through like so. I’m going to grab another piece of the string somewhere else
and being able to pull that through and therefore it will not come out. Just
slipping it in behind okay I’m grabbing the string and pulling it
through. There for that loose end will not fall out on the outside of this
project. It’s already kind of tied off the way
that I already did it and now we can just safely trim that on the inside and
there is your Be Happy Flower and you just have to manipulate it a little bit
to get it to all ruffle back out. You have a beautiful center. When I pull it apart you can see that we did our ring, we did our first single crochet, we did
our double crochet and then we did our outside and then when you just have to shift it all back. It’s actually it’s gonna buckle within
itself. It’s gonna give it some layers and you know you attach this to a
sweater, a hat, any kind of idea and so basically
it’s just going up and down in continuous waves and this stuff is
actually really quite amazing. So this is your Be Happy Flower. Until next time enjoy! 👋

  1. I love the way this turned out, but how would this flower be used? Could leaves be added? Could it be flowers on a scarf??

  2. I Loved the way this came out. I did one and gave it to my 9 yr old daughter and now she wants to learn how to crochet…Thank you. What would you suggest I do to start her on learning to crochet?

  3. Well this totally freaked me out. I started making this and I looked up at the "flowers" at the corner of my desk. This looks like a 90ish year old crochet flower pattern. Well i guess i can add more flowers to the collection now.

  4. Thank you so much! I love making this flower working on another one to go on a hat for a 4 yr old little girl. Thanks again! 🙂

  5. I wanted a nice large floppy flower to add to a poncho I made for my 3 year old niece.  However, I made the poncho with Lion Brand Homespun yarn, which is a quite a bit thicker than the yarn used in the video, and a J hook (which I think is a little small for the pain in the neck homespun yarn).  The flower came out beautiful but was way to big for the rather small poncho.  So, I played with ways to make it smaller.   I ended up chaining 3 to make a ring, 8 sc's into ring, then 6 hdc into each sc.  Then ended with the sc-ch3 round – for the Homespun, a sc-ch2 would have also worked for the edging but, for me, the more "sloppy" it looks, the better.  It's still big and floppy but a better size for what I need.  Thank you for the pattern for this super easy flower, I will be making it again.  It's also easy to alter the pattern if need be.

  6. I love this flower and made it in cotton to go on the chemo hats I am making. I did make a change and instead of chaining 3 in the last row, I mixed it up between chain 1, 2 and 3. By the way, the link above takes you a review for a book instead of the pattern for the flower. Thank you to all at The Crochet Crowd for what you do,
