Celebrate Spring with this easy crochet cherry blossom flower pattern. Each flower takes only a few minutes to crochet and can be used for decor, garland or an accent on another piece.
I am just loving how Colorado is officially thawing out right now and the trees are giving birth to a new set of gorgeous flowers for the season.
And while the warmer weather is great for playing outside and collecting freckles, it’s not the best for crocheting chunky cowls and afghans. That’s where this mini flower pattern comes in.
This crochet cherry blossom pattern is a perfect lightweight project that won’t make you sweat up a storm while you’re working on it.
Since this is a very basic crochet flower pattern, you can change up the colors and yarn weight and use it for a lot of different projects. I used a fingering weight cotton yarn for the flowers and some leftover bright pink sock yarn for the accent color. You could really use any yarn you have though and just adjust the hook size accordingly.
I think it’d be lovely to string a bunch of blossoms together to make a springtime garland or a flower headband. (If you’re into headbands–check out my free flower headband pattern and my free “Aspen Socialite” headband pattern!)
I decided to attach mine flowers to a fallen tree branch to make a little minimalist Spring decoration. To attach the crocheted flowers to the branch, I just wrapped a small piece of double-sided tape around each spot where I wanted a flower to go. This way, I’ll be able to remove the flowers and re-use them when inspiration strikes.

Fasten off. Instead of weaving in the ends (annoying!), I simply tied the two strings together in a couple of knots at the back of the flower.
Using a tapestry needle and the accent color, embroider lines as pictured from the middle hole of the flower out the petals. To make your flowers look even more polished, block them by spritzing them with a spray bottle, adjusting each petal as you’d like and then letting them dry.
