Crochet Button Flower

Button Flowers are so very cute. They used real buttons in the middle of the flower. It gives is an artistic homemade appearance that I find very appealing.

These types of flowers require a bit of practice to get used to using the buttons as the centre but once you get the hang of it, watch out button collection.

Today, I have used Patons Grace Yarn. This yarn is a Light 3 Level Weight. It’s made of 100% mercerized cotton. It’s really tough yarn in the sense of being exceptionally strong. It’s very difficult to break this yarn using just your hands to pull it apart.

There are 23 colours in this yarn line and some of them are really beautiful to make the most delicious looking flowers. The flowers don’t use a lot of yarn so you can expect 1 ball to go a long way if you are making these flowers.

Materials Required

  • 2 Colours of Patons Grace Yarn or Equivalent.
  • 3.5 mm or E/4 Crochet Hook.
  • 2.0 mm or B/1 Crochet Hook. (Hook should fit into the holes of the buttons. Get a smaller size crochet hook if your hook doesn’t fit into the buttonhole.)
  • Tapestry Needle
  • 1″ Button with 4 Holes

Instructions

The video tutorial below will help illustrate where you need to go and exactly how to handle the yarn and tension. If you have any questions, please review the video.

Button Starting Point

You are only going to do 5 petals. This means you will be using all four holes on the button and use 1 hole for 2 strands.

  1. Insert a smaller crochet hook through the front of any hole in the button. Pull a Patons Grace Yarn loop through. Using a bigger crochet hook. Yarn over and pull the yarn from the back. Ch 2. Extend the loop and remove the larger hook.
  2. Using a section of the yarn coming from the ball, insert your smaller hook into the next hole and pull a loop through. Insert your hook back into the extended loop and pull the new loop through that loop. Ch 2.
  3. Keep repeating Step 2 until you have 5 loops coming from the middle. You will be using 1 hole twice.
  4. Once all 5 are done. Slip stitch to the beginning loop.

You will see the yarn is ready for the flower. The tension is a bit loose offering a bit of flexibility for inserting the stitches for the petal. If this is your first attempt, the 2nd or 3rd tries to end up having better tension as you are used to the steps involved.

Petal Creation

  1. *In next ch 2 space, 1 SC, 8 DC, and 1 SC into the same space. Repeat * all the way around. Slip Stitch to the beginning SC. You should have 5 completed petals.
  2. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
