365 Days of Crochet Flowers

So I had an impulse idea on NYE before I hit the hay at about 9pm lol (pretty adventurous for me lately). To crochet a flower a day for the entire year. Yep that’s also adventurous lol. Β It didn’t come to me to do a different flower each day till day two though lol. So far we are about to enter the third week and I am loving every single flower.

I usually design the flower in bed the night before after a big day when my brain is quite drained. But some days you’ll notice when I pick up the hook first thing in the morning haha. I will try and keep most of the designs easy and simple, but there comes a time when you need to mix it up a bit and bring other stitches into it to flare it up.

All patterns of mine are written in English and in US (American) terms. I will try and include either a table of stitch conversions or the UK terms as well. Just depends how busy I am with my boys and home life.

For now or at least until I can edit this post, it will only include US terms. My plan is to have an album or post for each month so that you don’t get lost for where you are up to. I’ll have to remember how to work that out but as we are still in January I can get away with having it all here for you in the one spot.

Please note, I will not be naming every single flower, I have a hard enough time naming one design let alone 365 small ones hahahaha. Feel free to suggest some if something jumps out at you.

I am using my DMC Natura Just Cotton stash and a 3.5mm hook.

– Prussian (64)
– Star Light (27)
– Blue Jeans (26)
– Amaranto (33)
– Turquoise (49)
– Chartreuse (48)
– Bamboo (76)
– Bruique (86)
– Pistache (13)

UPDATE!!! I am trying to figure out how to have each month’s album here… it looks good at the back end but it’s not coming up when I look as you would.. SO until I figure it out and fix it I’ll leave you with the links πŸ™‚

        I only see January, February and March here.
        Did you complete the whole year and I just can’t find the rest of the flowers or did you stop after three months of making them?
        I’ve searched and searched your site and I just can’t find the rest πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
        Thanks πŸ™πŸ»

    Hello Emily, just found your blog and am so thrilled to discover your wonderful site, I have started on the 365 flowers with my left over tapestry wool threads as all the colors required are small amounts. Thank you for your blog whilst bringing up 3 boys, no mean feat!
    Thank you Wendy

      Hey Wendy! My absolute pleasure. I do love what I do πŸ™‚ I look forward to seeing what you make. If you have other social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram, you can share it on there and use the #hashtag #365daysofcrochetflowers.
      Have fun!

    Thank you for sharing your time, your talent and your creativity. Love that you have each month as a link with all the patterns for that month. Sure makes it easy to find what your looking for. I have saved them to my computer so that I can be working on them a few at a time, but still have all the patterns so I don’t miss out on anything. Wishing you and yours all the very best that life has to offer.

      Hi Gwendora,
      Unfortunately I am not continuing with the flowers myself. BUT there is a group of lovely crocheters who have taken up the challenge to design flowers and share the patterns – It’s called “The Crochet Hook UP”. They can be found on Instagram and Facebook πŸ™‚

    Help please – where are the instructions for the flowers for April 1 on? I cannot seem to locate them in Instagram. Thanks for your help!

    Hi KD I had the same problem but after searching everywhere finally found them on facebook under the heading of The Crochet Hook Up , seemingly it is going under a new lady and she puts new ones up everyday it is already up to 110, hope you finf them ok. Wendy.


    • theloopystitches says:

      Thanks Wendy. I’m so sorry I’ve been absent lately. Yes there is now a ‘bunch’ hehe of fellow crocheters who have joined in a group and are designing the flowers. They are now posted on The Crochet Hook Up social media accounts. It just took over too much of my life, and although it was only one a day, I’d lost the love of crochet. You should see what I’m working on now that the love is back πŸ˜€ xoxox

    Thank you so much for the free flower patterns. I am looking for flowers for a bridal and bridesmaids bouquets. These will be a tremendous help


  9. Christine! says:

    What is your plan to use all these little flowers at the end of the year?
    I’d like to know what I’m working toward–more than a bunch of lovely flowers.


    • theloopystitches says:

      Hi Christine, I’m not making these anymore but other people are making blankets, garlands, etc. If you have instagram, Look up Suregal and see what Susan is doing, it looks amazing.
      The Crochet Hook Up (a bunch of beautiful crocheters) have taken over this now.
