Crochet Flower Clip

Vallery of ValleryB is here today to share with you how to crochet a 5-petal flower clip. Have you seen her adorable crochet strawberry baby hats? or her froggy baby beanie hats?

Oh… and if you don't know how to crochet, see this fresh 'petite series' on Crochet 101!


For the flower:

  • Yarn in any color
  • G or H crochet hook

For the clip:

  • Snap Barrette or Alligator Clip
  • 3/8” Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun

Getting started

Abbreviations: Chain Stitch (Ch), Slip Stitch (SS), Double Crochet Stitch (DC)

Round 1:

Tie the yarn onto the hook and Ch 3.

SS into first Ch to make a circle and DC 9 times into that same stitch to form a circle.

Join with a SS into top of beginning chain.

Round 2: 

DC 6 times in next stitch, then SS in next stitch.

Repeat 4 more times all the way around and join with a SS into beginning SS.

Cut tail and pull through the last loop.

Using hot glue, line a snap barrette or alligator clip with 3/8” grosgrain ribbon. (it may help to use another clip to hold it in place while setting)

Hot glue the barrette to the back of flower, tucking the tails in.

Then clip it in your hair or on a headband or hat! (just make sure to let the glue dry first)

  9. hey umm how do yhu do a bump? the round 2 plz answer 

    • Hi Crochet girl- I wrote this pattern, but I am not sure what you mean by “bump.” Do you mean the petals? Once you complete the first round of 9 Double Crochets and Slip Stitch into the beginning chain to form a circle, then you Double Crochet 6 times into the top of the next stitch along the outside of the circle (DC 6 times into the same single stitch), then you slip stitch into the next stitch, then DC 6 times in the next one and slip stitch into the next one until you get back to the original stitch. Hope that helps.

  10. For a beginner how do you crochet a flower on a granny square?

  11. Hello :) I have just made this lovely flower but I can not make the head band. I have tried to make it up from the picture but I just can not work it out. Is the pattern for the band available anywhere? Thanks 

    • I am a beginner and would like to make head bands for my granddaughters. What is a slip stitch? and how are the bands attached in the back?

      • A slip stitch is a basic stitch, also known as joining.  With a loop on your hook, just pull the tail through the loop already on your hook (similar to making a chain stitch).
        I am currently working on a tutorial for the headband.

  12. Thank you for this easy pattern!  I am new to crocheting, and this was very easy for me to follow! Your clear, bright  pictures also helped a bunch!  Thanks again!

  13. I made it and its fantastically easy. I just made one to put on a beanie that I just made my grandbaby

  14. Thank you so much for this pattern! It’s so easy to follow. I made one to put on this cute head-hugging hat pattern I found and it turned out beautifully, lol. Thanks again!!!

  15. Is there anyway you could post a video of you working the pattern? Mine keep turning out terrible!

    • Hi – The crochet flower clip was a guest post by ValleryB, so unfortunately I won’t be creating a video for it.

  16. I love how this is so easy to follow! Thanks so much!!

  17. This REALLY help me make my flower. And its also easy to follow too!

  18. hi, did u end up making a pattern available for the headband? thanx :)

  19. Thanks so much for the pattern, I love it! I was wondering what yarn you used in the picture? Is it cotton like sugar ‘n’ cream brand? It looks like it would hold better than the brand I use. Thanks!

    • I typically use Sugar n Cream for flowers but also Red Heart Soft or Caron Simply Soft works well, too.

      • Actually I should specify: cotton is best for the flowers and things you want to hold their shape and acrylic is better for things you’d like to stretch a little or might need to hand wash like hats or headbands, etc

  20. Just crocheted my first flower ever and it turned out great. Thanks!

  21. I love this!! (: though I kept making big ones. I hope I can make a smaller one to put on a bag I’m making…..
