Crochet flowers...HOW? Empty Crochet flowers...HOW?

Post by Soupie on Thu May 13, 2010 8:40 am

It seems like crocheted flowers are HUGE at the moment and I am loving how they are looking on people's pages. Now I know I could go and buy some, but I think I would really rather know how to make my own. (I am on a very tight budget too.) I never learned to crochet when I was younger, (mum & nana were both knitters), but would love to learn now. (I really only want to make simple flowers though.) Any suggestions on the best place to start??? Library? Internet? Help me!!!

OMG, so funny you should ask this Sue, i went and bought a crochet hook from spotlight yesty and have some crochet wool from kmart!! I also want to learn how to do it!! I plan to use google as my resource. My mum and her mum were knitters as well. My dad's mum did a bit of both, but we only ever knitted and now it is too late to learn from her!! Sad So i will need to teach myself!! Smile We can learn together!! lol!! Smile

I can crochet girls but you'll have to come to Perth so I can teach you!! Crochet flowers...HOW? Icon_wink I think your best bet is probably to find out if the library has a book for beginners or like Vicki suggested: Google it. I even get my flower patterns from the internet by typing: 'Free crochet flower patterns'. There are thousands of sites... just takes time to go throught them all. Crochet flowers...HOW? Icon_eek
My offer to come to Perth is still standing! Crochet flowers...HOW? Icon_biggrin

The question is though Marelize....Can you learn to crotchet from pics....I look at them and get all confused? Any recommendations?

I would love to learn too - but Perth is just a little bit too far.....! Crochet flowers...HOW? Icon_biggrin Crochet flowers...HOW? Icon_biggrin Crochet flowers...HOW? Icon_biggrin

That was my original point to begin with Vicki. Why learn when you can convince someone to do them for you....? Crochet flowers...HOW? Lol

So weird, guess what I've started making this last week lol? and some Yo Yo flowers. Have got some of both on my suedo Dare Challenge, not finished the LO yet though.

Be very willing to help you learn but a bit hard with thedistance. What about YouTube?

Oh and this might help http://www.wonderhowto.com/search/crochet/

I had a quick trip to Spotlight today and looked in the crochet section but had no idea what I was looking at / for in terms of hook sizes, yarns, etc, so didnt buy anything...LOL
I think I need to do some reading first and figure out what I need before I go looking so I dont just totally confuse myself. Crochet flowers...HOW? Icon_eek

As a guide Sue (and bear in mind I don't normally do fine crochet) I have been using either a 2mm or 3.5 mm hook and 4 ply crochet cotton. Don't get 4 ply wool. Hooks are a couple of dollars and the crochet cotton was $3something in Big W the other day

Cool! Thanks Becci! Crochet flowers...HOW? Icon_biggrin
Now at least I have some idea of where to start. I think I will have a look in Big W for supplies then, coz I dont think Spotlight was that cheap... Crochet flowers...HOW? Suspect

BTW - if I just start making stuff in white, will spraying with GM work to colour them? I have seen some really cool BRIGHT coloured stuff out there, but assume they are using coloured cottons to start or just dying with fabric dye?
