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


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.

      Been crocheting for over 40 years. Have made dozens of afghans, throws, shawls, and scarfs, but have been looking for some smaller projects that will go a lot quicker. So happy to find your site today. Love the button flower and would love to see the other objects you talk about in the tutorial. Your instructions are so easy to follow and so detailed. Thanks for such a great job.

    I left home today to attend a crochet class! (When I arrived I was told the instructor was sick and it is now rescheduled for next month.) I saw these button flowers 2 or 3 months ago, I have been trying ever since to figure out how to make them!! 10-15 years ago my mother taught me how to crochet around baby receiving/swaddling blankets. One stitch she said was a scallop, which looks like the button flower petals. I do NOT do well with written instructions, plus my mother passed away 3 years ago, in the mean time I’ve forgotten how to do the scallop stitch!! So in my opinion you are “spot on” for showing me how to do the two crochet things I wanted to learn today!! Many thanks for your time, I will be back to see more of your patterns!! Now I do not have to spend time going to a class, I can start crocheting!!

    Hi Mikey, Loved this crochet round the button, perfect to finish my hat to match Infinity scarf. Love the twist at front, it sits so flat inside my coat. Found your site about five years ago. “Keep up the good work” as they say here in Co. Galway, Ireland
