Tunisian crochet flower pattern techniques

This Tunisian crochet flower pattern utilizes a variety of techniques to create different elements of the flower.

One of the most common techniques is the Tunisian simple stitch. It creates a dense and sturdy fabric that is perfect for this Tunisian crochet flower pattern.

This stitch is worked by inserting the hook from right to left under the front vertical bar of the stitch below, and then pulling up a loop.

Secondly, we will also learn the art of short rows. These are essential in shaping the middle of this crochet flower.

The short rows allow the fabric to grow at much quicker rate on the outer edge as opposed to the inner edge.

Essential tools and materials for this Tunisian crochet flower pattern

To get started with Tunisian crochet flower patterns, you’ll need a few essential tools and materials.

Hook

Firstly, you’ll need a crochet hook, it doesn’t need to be a special Tunisian crochet hook. As long as your hook is capable of holding 6 loops of yarn at the same time, it is good enough to use!

If you are looking to do Tunisian crochet, you might want to invest into a set of Tunisian crochet hooks. These are longer than a regular crochet hook and have a stopper at the end to prevent stitches from falling off.

Tunisian crochet hooks are available in various sizes, so choose one that is appropriate for your chosen yarn weight and desired flower size.

You can easily increase/decrease the finished size of the flower by chaining the yarn thickness and the size of the hook.

One thing to remember is to always go up 2 hook sizes over the recommended hook size for the chosen weight if yarn.

Yarn

In addition to a Tunisian crochet hook, you’ll also need yarn in different colors. Use cotton yarn for flowers you wanna use as face scrubbies or make up removers.

Opt for acrylic yarn for more sturdy and durable blooms you can use as appliqués or coasters. Experiment with different yarn weights and textures to achieve different effects and create a diverse range of flowers.

Notions

Other essential tools include a pair of scissors, a yarn needle for weaving in ends, and stitch markers to help you keep track of your stitches and pattern repeats.

It’s also a good idea to have a blocking mat and pins on hand, as blocking your finished flowers can help to enhance their shape and appearance.
