When I released the pattern for this tropical flower, I didn’t know what to call it and mentioned that I definitely wasn’t a “flower expert.” A sweet lady on Ravelry commented that it reminded her of a pansy. So I googled “pansy”, and I could definitely see why my Tropical Flower reminded her of one!

But, there were some significant differences. The pansies I saw had 5 petals like my Tropical Flower, but they weren’t evenly sized and spaced, as mine was. In fact, the pansy flower has a very unique-looking grouping of petals. The three top petals overlap a bit, with one being a little larger than the other two. Then, there are two larger petals in a contrasting color underneath. All of the flowers I looked at had eye-popping, vibrant color schemes. Blues, Pinks, Purples, Yellows… there definitely isn’t just one way to color a pansy!

pansy-doneOne of the most fun challenges about making a new pattern is taking an everyday object, like a flower, and trying to mimic its look, its shape, with a pile of yarn and a unique combination of stitches. I decided the pansy would be my next project. I’m so excited for how it turned out!

For this pattern, you’ll need to decide what colors you want your pansy to be. I will add “[color change]” throughout the pattern to show you where you WOULD change if you decided to change at that point. But how many times you change colors will be up to you. The more color changes you do, the more yarn tails you’ll be working around, so I like to weave in my tails as I go.

I’ve also modified my format a bit, because it’s easy to get lost in these instructions, especially if you’re a newbie. Small steps within rounds will be on different lines to keep things clear.

One thing to keep in mind.Β It says the size in the pattern, but still the #1 piece of feedback I get about this flower is that it’s “too big for what I was going to use it for.” If you use a G hook and worsted weight yarn, as I did, it’s going to come to about 3.5″. Plan ahead, and if that’s too big for you, use a DK or fine weight yarn and a smaller hook. πŸ˜‰

Round 4, Petal 3:Β Repeat instructions for Petal 2.

Ch 5. Turn flower over and stretch the chain across the back of the petal you just completed. We are now working on the backside of the flower. Sl St in first available BACK STRANDS of next petal, as shown in figure 1 below. (We do this so the color doesn't show on the front of the flower, in case you're using a different color.)


Ch 5. Stretch chain across the back of the next petal and Sl St the same way, as shown in figure 2 above. [color change]

Ch 2; turn. We will now be working in rows.

Row 1 (all worked along the Ch 5):

Repeat for next petal. Ch 1; turn.

Row 3:Β SC evenly around both petals. Sl St to base of Ch 2 on last petal and fasten off. Weave in all ends.

pansy-detailingDetailing:Β Cut a piece of yarn about two feet long. With yarn needle, sew inner petal detailing by bringing yarn up through the SC (from the very first round) at the center of one of the top petals; bring yarn down through petal, up through the same SC, down through petal, up through the same SC, and down through the petal, 3 times total at three different placed in the petal. (You can eyeball it based on the photo I've provided. This is nature; it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful.) You can fold the back petal back and hold it with your fingers to keep it out of the way while you sew the detailing. When you finish with the first petal, bring your yarn needle through a couple of back strands to get you to the base SC for the next petal, and repeat. Repeat for third petal as well. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Finishing:Β You can be done here, or finish off your flower with a small embellishment like the ones in my photos. I love to use small brads that I find in my craft store's scrapbooking section. You just slip the two metal prongs through the center of your flower and bend them back on the other side. They are a beautiful finishing touch!

Have fun with this flower. I'd love to see your finished product, so send your pics to or upload them on Ravelry!

    I like crocheting flowers, especially pansys. They have such happy little “faces”. πŸ™‚

    • Rebecca January 25, 2014, 2:16 pm

      It’s true! πŸ™‚

  • Susan Peterson January 25, 2014, 2:13 pm

    Absolutely beautiful! I have been looking for some cute flower embellishments for some baby hats I have been making and ran across your site. Thanks for making beautiful clear tutorials…I am so bad at reading patterns but you make it look like a piece of cake!

    • Rebecca January 25, 2014, 2:17 pm

    I am going to add these little pansies to the hats and headbands that I am making to send to children’s hospital for little girls with cancer to wear so they can dress up and feel better.

    • Rebecca February 25, 2014, 7:31 pm

      That makes me SO happy to hear. I love the idea that these patterns are being used to bless other people. πŸ™‚

  • Darleen February 25, 2014, 10:26 pm

    This is the flower I have in my garden. I plant them in the fall and they freeze in the
    winter and bloom in the spring. I just love them.
    Yours are so pretty. They will look great on my cancer hats.
    Thank you so much.

    • Rebecca February 28, 2014, 1:54 pm

      Thank you Darleen! I hope the girls who are blessed with your hats will feel beautiful in them. πŸ™‚

  • Angela February 26, 2014, 7:34 am

    Lovely little pansy. Going to stitch some onto fingerless springtime gloves for friends this Easter. YouTube tuition video would be fabulous. Bit confused at the chain into back of flower so would be good to see ‘live’. Still going to give them a go though. πŸ™‚

    • Rebecca February 28, 2014, 1:53 pm

      Thank you Angela! Sadly I don’t have the capability to product good videos yet, but that is on my wish list. I hope you’ll be able to figure out the back of the flower. I did that (stayed in the back strands) so that the chain wouldn’t show through to the front of the flower. Let me know if you need help!

  • Elizabeth February 28, 2014, 6:11 pm

    I am not new to crocheting, in fact I have been crocheting for a good 40 years. I love this pattern and cannot wait to try it out, but, I am already stuck when you say to make a “magic circle”. What exactly is that?

    • Elizabeth February 28, 2014, 9:29 pm

      Okay, I watched a video on the magic circle online. Is round 1 creating this magic circle then? I just want to be sure I am understanding this correctly.

      • Rebecca March 4, 2014, 9:48 am

        Hi Elizabeth! Actually you create the magic circle before Round 1, and then the 6 SC of Round 1 are what go into that initial circle. I hope that helps!

  • Jen Bonhomme March 16, 2014, 1:21 pm

    Love pansies. New youtube taught crochetter and am HOOKED! Have a pretty little baby hat waiting for a flower. Can’t wait to try this one! Thank you for posting!

    • Rebecca March 17, 2014, 9:50 am

      Awesome! This flower is about 3.5″ wide when made with a size G hook, so if that’s too big for your baby hat, be sure to use a smaller hook and/or lighter yarn. I think it will make an adorable baby hat!

  • Marsha March 20, 2014, 6:06 pm

    thank you so much for posting this pattern. I love pansies and this one is so realistic.

    • Rebecca March 21, 2014, 12:10 pm

      You’re welcome, I’m glad you like it πŸ™‚

  • Kellie March 25, 2014, 9:56 am

    These are lovely! I was looking for something to put on a mothers day card and my mum loves pansies so these will be perfect.

    Thank you very much for sharing, kind people like you are how I got into crochet 9 months ago.

    • Rebecca March 25, 2014, 10:10 am

      You’re so welcome! I learned to crochet from others’ free patterns as well. πŸ™‚

      If you’re using this for a card, please keep in mind that if you use a G hook and worsted weight yarn as I did, it comes to 3.5″. People are often surprised at how big it turns out. So if you need it smaller, try DK yarn and a smaller hook. πŸ™‚ Have fun!

      • Kellie March 25, 2014, 8:48 pm

        I think I must crochet extra super tight or something as mine turned out more like 2 1/2 to 3 inches. I’m learning that my gauge is totally off, but anyway, I made three sweet little pansies and attached them to a card. I know my mum will love it!

        • Rebecca March 28, 2014, 9:22 am

          Wonderful! I bet the cards are just beautiful!

  • Karen March 26, 2014, 3:48 pm

    I would like to print out your lovely patterns without all the added comments to save on paper, but I don’t know how to do that! Can you help me, please?! Thanks.

    • Rebecca March 28, 2014, 9:02 am

      Hi Karen! Most people just copy and paste the pattern into a Word document. Eventually I will get around to making printable PDFs of my patterns. Until then, hope that helps πŸ™‚

    • Susan Peterson August 5, 2014, 9:43 am

      I use a Screen shot program or you could possibly just click on print screen on your keyboard it may allow a separate page to come up to print the whole pattern with the pictures included. You can get a free version of snag it, that works perfectly to be able to save the patterns and print them out later. I hope this helps Karen. (do a search on youtube, that’s where I found the version of the snag it program I am using)

  • Linda April 15, 2014, 7:28 pm

    I am new to crochet. I am confused about the start.
    After the magic circle I use the yellow and then change the color twice? Also how do I make both sets of petals and attach them together. They are so adorable. I am making them for my granddaughter’s Easter headband.

    • Rebecca April 28, 2014, 7:28 pm

      Hi Linda! You can change colors wherever you want to in the pattern to achieve your desired look. I just included color changes all throughout the pattern to help newbies know where to change if they wanted to. The flower is worked all together and there is no need to attach the petals at the end because they will already be attached. πŸ™‚

  • BARB April 27, 2014, 2:03 pm

    Thank you so much for posting the free pattern for the beautiful pansy. I have seen many pansy patterns, but this by far the most beautiful I have seen yet. Thanks again.

    • Rebecca April 28, 2014, 7:29 pm

      Thank you so much for the kind words πŸ™‚

  • Jerri April 29, 2014, 9:30 am

    This is so adorable. My mother-in-law says every year she sees a pansy come up in a spot she never planted and she knows it a sign from her 1stborn son that passed away 10 years ago. Thanks to you I will now make her some of these to present to her after she see the bloom from Mike.
    Your pattern will bring so much joy to her .

    • Rebecca May 1, 2014, 7:51 am

      How sweet! Thank you so much for sharing. God bless her, and I hope it does bring her joy.

  • Barbe April 30, 2014, 9:24 pm

    Hi Rebecca,
    Thank you so much for your generosity. Your flowers look so real. I only recently started back crocheting – making numerous sun hats n headbands for granddaughters n nieces! I love seeing first pansies every spring. Now I don’t have to wait to see pansies. Can hardly wait to try to make the clown face pansies; color combinations endless. Thnx again. (*_ *)

    • Rebecca May 1, 2014, 7:54 am

      You are so welcome, Barbe! I’m glad you like them!

  • Vanessa May 14, 2014, 1:36 am

    Hi Rebecca,

    Thank you for this very pretty pansy pattern.
    I am self taught and I am a little confused about the beginning.
    Where you have the numbers (6) and (9) in parenthesis. Can you explain what this means please?

    • vanessa May 14, 2014, 1:40 am

      Hi again,

      I think I have just had an aha moment. That is the number of stitches that row should contain, I think…….yeah, going to try this tonight to add to my multi patterned granny square rug.
      Have a lovely evening.

      • Rebecca May 26, 2014, 7:42 pm

        That’s correct, Vanessa! I’m glad you were able to figure it out, as I am (obviously) quite behind on responding to comments. Sorry πŸ™‚ I bet your granny square rug will be lovely!

  • Maite Mashila May 29, 2014, 7:38 am

    Hi Rebs
    Yoh the pattern is so beautiful, i cant wait to do it with my own hands, would you please send me the free patterns to try making some. Yoh this is truly good.

    • Rebecca June 5, 2014, 10:00 am

      Thanks Maite! The pattern is written out right on the blog post, just scroll down til you see it. πŸ™‚

  • Dorothy June 4, 2014, 7:44 pm

    I have bee trying to design the pansy for ages and got a lot of interesting flowers but they sure weren’t pansies. ) I did get some pretty flowers though on three dimension but no pansy. I want it for a little girl’s dress that I just crocheted. Your pansy is beautiful and just what I was looking for. Thank you so much
    By the way I would urge any of you ladies to play around and try crocheting your own flowers. I was pleasantly surprised with what I came up with just playing around. Remember to write down what you are doing. Then you will have your own pattern.

    • Rebecca June 5, 2014, 10:02 am

      Thank you Dorothy! And you’re so right. I love designing flowers because anything goes, and if you don’t like how it’s looking, you don’t have to rip out much to start again. πŸ™‚

  • Cheryl July 24, 2014, 3:54 am

    Thanks so much for this great pattern. I just finished making my first pansy from it and it turned out very nice. I’ve been searching for a pansy pattern for several days and this is my favorite so far.

    • Rebecca August 5, 2014, 9:37 am

      I’m so glad you like it πŸ™‚

  • Linda Burch September 4, 2014, 11:43 am

    Can I copy the pics with the instructions for my own use? I need pictures when
    I crochet. I only copy for my own use. I don’t blog or post any patterns to the internet. I really like your pattern(not sure I can do it) but it looks more like Pansies to me than most. what does DK mean?

    • Rebecca April 28, 2015, 11:06 am

      Yes, for personal use, please do! DK is sport weight.

  • dorrie May 12, 2015, 12:13 am

  • Sylvia Charlton May 21, 2015, 11:05 am

    I am very impressed with how you have created this pattern – it was a challenge to copy/paste into my pattern folder. I will share photos if and when I complete these. I am hoping to make a Springtime wreath and these will be perfect. I have tiny pearl beads to use for the centers so I hope they look good. – Just signed up to follow your blog.

  • Marie Falck May 24, 2015, 10:10 pm

    I love pansies. They are a favorite of mine. I’m looking forward to making a few and attaching them to summer hats I’m making to bless a young girl who just turned 7 yr. old today. She had surgery recently for kidney cancer, and now is having chemo. To make it easier for her to cope, I’m blessing her with a few hats to cover her bald head. Grandma will either mail or visit and give them to her when I have them completed. Thanks so much for posting this pattern so I can bless her.

  • Cathy June 13, 2015, 5:22 pm

    I love your patterns and especially this one for pansies! I’m so glad I found “” I would love to copy the photo onto my pattern page just so that as I crochet this pattern, I can check to make sure it looks the way it should. Is that a no-no? I’m understanding that it is from what you wrote, and I don’t want to infringe in any improper way. Thanks!

    • Rebecca June 14, 2015, 3:41 pm

      Yes, you may! I need to re-word my permissions. What I’m referring to is when people use my un-linked photos to promote their own crochet businesses instead of making the items themselves and photographing that. But yes, using it for your own personal use is fine. πŸ™‚

  • Joyce Botha June 14, 2015, 3:45 pm

    Thank you for this pansy. They look adorable !! Newby in chrochet and will enjoy them.
    One thing though, what is a G or H needle. Here in South Africa I have not heard these names. Can some one please explain. I also came upon pattern for G and H needles !
    Thank you

    • Rebecca June 14, 2015, 3:48 pm

      Hi Joyce! A “G Hook” is a 4.25mm crochet hook (some are 4.00mm). An “H Hook” is a 5.00mm crochet hook. Hope that helps! πŸ™‚

  • Colleen June 19, 2015, 10:30 am

    I saw your tropical flower as a pansy right away. Very pretty. Your directions with pictures are wonderful.

  • Cheryl Ennis July 24, 2015, 7:09 pm

    Could you please explain how to add a square behind it , such as the way you did
    the Wildflower Bag CAL? I have a friend that loves this flower, and I thought either a pillow or blanket would be pretty. Thank-you for all your help.

    • Rebecca July 24, 2015, 9:40 pm

      I wish it were a simple answer, but this flower is constructed very different from the wildflower. I will add it to the list of requests and hopefully figure something out at some point πŸ™‚

  • Janice August 30, 2015, 11:07 pm

    This is the most beautiful, useable crocheted flower I have ever seen! Thank you for your willingness to share it with others and I appreciate the time and effort you must have put into this design. it is perfect for the little girl’s hat I have crocheted.

  • Teresa September 12, 2015, 4:34 pm

    I am excited to find free patterns as I do not work, am waiting for disability to happen. But I settle in under my blanket on a half bad day, now I have to get up and get a credit card (which I don’t have) only a Walmart debit to pay a silly $1 to be able to download this file, that’s kinda backwards.

      You do not “have to” pay $1 for the pattern. It is available in full, with ads, right on this blog post. If you want the ad-free version, you can pay $1 for it and get the pdf. I don’t think that’s unreasonable at all. I think it’s a pretty good deal, actually – I get to put food on my family’s table, and you get to choose between a free pattern and a very inexpensive pattern.

    I like you pansy-pattern, very good! See the pic on Pinterest:

  • Soffity December 22, 2015, 6:07 pm

    Really enjoy your blog. I’m a bit confused where you start the rows. It says ch5 but then it says to work the dc’s into the ch4. I’m presuming you mean you do the last two petals into the two lots of 5 ch worked on the back of the pansy. I did the pansy in 8 ply or dk yarn with a 3.5mm hook and it was still 3″ at it’s widest.
    Thanks for sharing your patterns.

  • MaryEllen January 11, 2016, 9:47 am

    I love these! I can see using them to embellish lots of hats/cowls and headbands!

  • Donette Powers January 11, 2016, 9:47 am

    Pansies are my favorite. Thank you for the adorable pattern.

  • April Coles January 11, 2016, 10:35 am

    These are so cheerful looking!

  • Cindy Van Meter January 11, 2016, 11:55 am

    These remind me of my Grandmothers Pansy garden. Thank you for posting.

  • Karen R January 11, 2016, 1:26 pm

    These are beautiful. It brings back memories of my Great-Grandmother and her beautiful gardens that had colorful pansies along the border. Thank you for offering your pattern. I will have to make some of these for sure! πŸ™‚

  • Sue Marshall January 11, 2016, 1:28 pm

    I’ve been looking for a pansy pattern for awhile, fell in love with this one. Looks more realistic than some others. Thank you.

  • Minta Fung January 11, 2016, 1:36 pm

    I love flower patterns and this is one of the easiest pansy patterns I have found to follow.

  • Paula January 11, 2016, 4:44 pm

    I absolutely love these flowers!! My father’s favorite flower was a pansy and it warms my heart every time I see one. I will definitely be incorporating these into my crochet work somehow. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. I love your site!!!

  • Holly January 11, 2016, 7:11 pm

    I love this flower. With a smaller hook and a thinner yarn it is great for baby hats.

  • Yvonne Mickelson January 12, 2016, 12:37 am

    I love pansies!!! I can imagine many uses for this pattern. Thank you!!!!

  • Rosie January 12, 2016, 3:56 pm

    These are really cute and would make any item look special!

  • Jace Fox January 14, 2016, 11:21 am

    Pansies are one of my favorite flowers this is awesome now I can crochet some

  • Sharon Smith January 15, 2016, 11:37 am

    Hi. I just love flowers and especially pansies. I have to try this pattern today! πŸ™‚

  • Joy Williams January 15, 2016, 2:40 pm

    I just love this pattern for pansies, I am making these for sure.

  • Margaret J Owen-Trowbridge January 26, 2016, 8:06 am

    Thank you very much for free patterns. I am 61 and am on Soc. Sec. Disability limited income. These free patterns allow me to make special gifts for family that I can afford. I learned to crochet, knit, embroider, sew and cook very early in life — it makes me glad that this learning has allowed me to make gifts.

  • Erin February 7, 2016, 9:45 am

    Just started learning to crochet and I’ve been practicing with different flower patterns. Love this one, thank you for posting it!

  • Jennifer March 23, 2016, 10:33 pm

    Can you give more explanation on the Row 1. It says this goes in the chain 4 space. Where is that? I don’t see a chain 4 in the pattern.

    • Rebecca April 4, 2016, 12:41 pm

      So sorry, it should say “the chain 5 space”. I’ll correct that!

  • Patsy March 31, 2016, 8:52 pm

    I am intrigued with your flowers. Thank you for the pattern.

  • Sarah April 7, 2016, 5:46 pm

    Could you explain an by create a magic circle I am nit familiar with that term. I appreciate you help . These pansies are adorable

  • Barbara Morokutti May 21, 2016, 9:50 pm

    How can I get a copy of this please, thank you

  • Sharon August 16, 2016, 12:15 pm

    How can I eliminate the ads that keep popping up in the middle of the directions?
    Also, my webroot virus keeps saying that I have a threat when I try to use the download converter. Can anyone help me?

    • Rebecca August 16, 2016, 6:07 pm

      The ads can’t be eliminated. (My patterns are free, so my blog is monetized so that I can still make an income.) They shouldn’t be covering the pattern at all. If you want a completely ad-free version, I sell it in my Etsy shop:

      As far as the download converter, I think you’re probably clicking an ad. I don’t have any download buttons on my patterns. If you want to print it, you can use the print button located just above where the pattern begins. It will give you instructions on how to delete what you don’t want first (such as ads and comments).

  • Gelda November 26, 2016, 5:16 pm

    Thank you for very good and easy instructions. I am so pleased with how my Pansy has turned out.

  • Meme Smith March 7, 2017, 8:26 pm

    I love these sweet little pansy flowers that have a look of a monkeys face.

  • Charle March 13, 2017, 4:06 pm

    Although I did not have trouble figuring it out, there are no instructions for making the back chain for the larger back petals that are worked in rows. The photos are there but no written instructions.

    • Rebecca March 13, 2017, 5:35 pm

      They are there, above and below the photos. I’m glad you were able to figure it out, though.

  • Caitie May 7, 2017, 10:04 am

    I just love this! So delicate. Absolutely gorgeous – thank you πŸ™‚

  • Linda Shaut October 3, 2017, 9:25 pm

    HI. I love your flowers and congratulations on your new little monkey!
    Any chance you have instructions for forget-me-nots? My family does a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association in November and the forget-me-not is the flower associated with this group. At our event, Swinging Moments Cabaret, we have a Silent Auction. I try to put together a “memory” basket in memory of my mom who suffered with the disease for many year. I’d love to see if I can make something (maybe a pillow?) with these flowers, though I have very little skill in this area (my mom was the talented one). But before I can create anything, I hope you have a nice, simple pattern. Thanks

    • Rebecca October 3, 2017, 9:26 pm

      I don’t, I’m sorry! πŸ™‚

  • E.J.M.van Oijen. November 12, 2017, 11:00 am

    Vind het viooltje heel erg leuk, en heb het bewaard.

  • Elf-Queen.16 April 24, 2018, 8:47 pm

    I made few of these as finishing touches for a bouquet I’m making for a friends mom who has cancer (she can’t do pollen anymore because of the chemo :() They are so cute. Perfect compliments to the lilies and roses I have already-Thanks so much for this great free pattern!

  • Sheila Valentine April 25, 2018, 1:14 am

    I have no website,but I stumbled across yours and saw the pansy and fell in love with it.

  • Vicki Louise Crawford Caul April 30, 2018, 9:39 pm

    I simply want to learn to make them to use on my patio table.

  • Gwen Crandell July 21, 2018, 8:55 am

    How cute are those pansies. I am going to make several of them in different colors out of crochet cotton and string them together to make a necklace. I’m also making them into earrings with crochet cotton and size 9 steel hook. I’ll use stiffener to help hold their shape. I have post earrings with rhinestone centers that will work perfectly. Just poke them through the center of the magic circle. Thank You for the inspiration.

  • Lynnette July 10, 2019, 2:55 am

    I made your pansy today and I love it. I will be making many more as I’m using them for a gift for a pansy lover. I have used several other patterns of yours and I just wanted to say thank you for making them available to us. I have a small comment/question about Row 1 for the back petals. After making the base of the first back petal where we then Ch 1; Sl St to next Ch 5 into the next back petal, should there be a Ch 2 and then 5 DC in Ch 5 space? So, Ch 1; Sl St to next Ch 5. (Ch 2). 5 DC in Ch 5 space. I only ask because I felt like I was missing a Ch 2 space for Row 2. Whether there is or isn’t, I think this pattern is great. Thank you again for making your work available.

  • Beverley August 8, 2019, 12:33 pm

    Thank you. I will try this.
