I’ve got a great new flower pattern and tutorial for you! I’ve been brainstorming how to make a “giant flower” for a while, and I’m finally happy with what I’ve come up with. I’m loving this flower and am so exited about all of its potential uses.

What makes this flower “never-ending” is how it is built. Between each round of petals is a round of increases, so the petals don’t pile on top of each other. What that means is that rather than getting taller and bulkier, the flower stays the same height, and just gets wider. So, theoretically, you could keep adding rounds of petals and increases to make it the size of a football field, and it would still only be less than an inch tall, making it great as an addition to things like blankets and throw pillows. It’s not 1-dimensional like your typical appliqué; it has depth and interest, without the bulk.

And what’s really cool is that this flower works right into a granny square, so you can use it in an afghan or as a throw pillow cover. I’m telling you, the applications are as endless as your imagination. If you want to see how I turned this flower into a granny square, check out this blog post!

A note about this pillow & afghan combo…

flowerpillowI have gotten so many emails, messages and comments about the pattern for the pillow shown in this photo. It is not my creation (someone used the Neverending Wildflower and turned it into a pillow), and unfortunately, the photo of it keeps getting linked to me. I do not have this pattern variation and I do not know its origins. I can, however, tell you that the stunning blanket pictured with it is Sophie’s Universe by Dedri Uys.

Hook: H (5.00mm) or size appropriate for the yarn you choose

Difficulty: Easy
Gauge: Unimportant

Video Tutorial (sort of): If you have a hard time getting this pattern started, there is a video tutorial for my Wildflower Shoulder Bag that matches up with the first two rounds of petals in this pattern. Please note that after the 2nd round of petals, the video will no longer be applicable (but by then, you'll probably have the hang of it anyway). View tutorial here.

Notes:


  • This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
  • Rounds will alternate between increase rounds and petals. Increase rounds will be called “round 1, 2, 3” etc, and petal rounds will be referred to as “1st round of petals, 2nd round of petals,” etc. Because ch petal round shares its space with the increase round below it, they are not counted as part of the pattern’s total rounds.
  • CH1 on the increase rounds does not count as a stitch.
  • Be mindful that the pattern alternates in calling for FLO (Front Loops Only) and BLO (Back Loops Only).
  • Each round of petals has 12 total petals. The first round of petals will cover 1 ST (of the previous round) per petal. The 2nd round of petals will cover 2 STS per petal, the 3rd round 3 STS, and so on. I'm giving you instructions up to 5 rounds of petals, but using this formula and a little imagination, you can make it even bigger.

The Pattern

Begin with a Magic Circle; CH1.

Round 1: 12 DC in MC. Join with a SL ST to first DC. (12)

1st Round of Petals (FLO): CH2. In same St, 2DC, CH2, SL ST. This is your first petal. (SL ST to next St. In same St, CH2, 2DC, CH2, SL ST to same St) around. SL ST to base of 1st CH2. (12 petals)
The Never Ending Wildflower  |  Free Crochet Pattern by Little Monkeys Crochet

Round 2 (BLO - You’re now going to work around Round 1 again, this time working in the loop that you ignored during the first round of petals): SL ST to 1st back loop of Round 1. CH1. 2DC in same ST. 2 DC in each ST around. Join with a SL ST to first DC. (24)
The Never Ending Wildflower  |  Free Crochet Pattern by Little Monkeys Crochet

2nd Round of Petals (FLO): CH2. DC in same ST. In next ST, DC, CH2, SL ST. (SL ST to next St, CH2, DC in same ST. In next ST, DC, CH2, SL ST) around. SL ST to base of 1st CH2. (12 petals)

Round 3 (BLO): SL ST to 1st back loop of Round 2. CH1. 2DC in same ST, DC in next ST. (2DC in next ST, DC in next ST) around. Join with a SL ST to first DC. (36)

Round 4 (BLO): SL ST to 1st back loop of Round 3. CH1. 2DC in same ST, DC in each of the next 2 STS. (2DC in next ST, DC in each of the next 2 STS) around. Join with a SL ST to first DC. (48)

4th Round of Petals (FLO): CH2. DC in same ST. 2TR in next ST. 2 TR in next ST. In next ST, DC, CH2, SL ST. (SL ST to next ST, CH2, DC in same ST. 2TR in next ST. 2 TR in next ST. In next ST, DC, CH2, SL ST) around. SL ST to base of 1st CH2. To complete flower, SL ST to 1st BLO of Round 4. (12 petals)

Round 5 (BLO): SL ST to 1st back loop of Round 4. CH1. 2DC in same ST, DC in each of the next 3 STS. (2DC in next ST, DC in each of the next 3 STS) around. Join with a SL ST to first DC. (60)

5th Round of Petals (FLO): CH2. DC in same ST. 2TR in each of the next 3 STS. In next ST, DC, CH2, SL ST. (SL ST to next ST, CH2, DC in same ST. 2TR in each of the next 3 STS. In next ST, DC, CH2, SL ST) around. SL ST to base of 1st CH2. (12 petals)

Fasten off and weave in ends, or keep adding increase rounds and petal rounds to make it even bigger!

  • Heather Brown May 7, 2015, 12:28 pm

    I LOVE this pattern and instantly saw it as a textured, decorative rug for a small room that doesn’t get much traffic. Would it work?

    • Rebecca May 7, 2015, 1:00 pm

      It would! I would definitely keep it in a low traffic room, because the petals do have some height. I think it would be beautiful. 🙂

  • Lynn Rosebur May 7, 2015, 3:33 pm

      I would be interested to see it!

      • Jennifer November 16, 2015, 10:15 pm

        I want to keep going past the 5th round of petals. As the number of spaces grow for the petals should I just continue to add TRs & flank them by the ch2s & DCs?
        Thanks!! I’ve made a small purse & now am just seeing how big I can make one with the yarn left in a skein. 🙂

        • Rebecca November 17, 2015, 4:31 pm

          Yes, that’s correct! 🙂

      Thank you for the kind words!

  • jennyann May 20, 2015, 9:01 pm

    I love this flower but as a beginner, I’m having difficulty figuring out which stitch to start DC in for the petals. Do i dc into both loops of the outer rim of the magic circle? Or just one loop? Can you help? !
    I’ve already made round one and two twice, and frogged it both times 🙁

    • Rebecca May 21, 2015, 7:26 pm

      I’m sorry you’re having trouble! You’ll see in the instructions “FLO” and “BLO”, as in:

      “1st Round of Petals (FLO):”

      FLO means Front Loop Only, and BLO means Back Loop Only. So for the petal rounds, you’re working in the front loop only. I hope that helps!

      • jennyann May 24, 2015, 1:32 pm

        Yes!!! Thanks so much!!!! I adore this flower. I’m actually going to make a few Dishrags from this pattern, because fancy chores are the best chores! 🙂

  • Anne Goodman June 11, 2015, 9:02 pm

    Thank you for this lovely pattern, I’m already thinking how to use it. Can I ask you if it would make a floor rug?

    • Rebecca June 13, 2015, 3:55 pm

      It could, if you made it big enough. I wouldn’t put it in a high-traffic area, as the petals aren’t flat and it might become a tripping hazard. 🙂

I am only a learner I can do a granny square and make a rose of a fashion but would love to have a go at your flower as it has the wow factor. Fingers crossed lol Thankyou x

      Not at this time.

  • betty June 25, 2015, 4:34 pm

    please have your patterns so we can print them off. right now there are 66 comments and I sure do not want those so to heck with it. just skip this pattern.

    • Rebecca June 25, 2015, 4:43 pm

      Feel free to skip this pattern. It is a completely free service, after all.

      For those who wish to print, I have provided multiple options.
      1) Use the “Print” button located just above where the pattern begins. From there, if you follow the directions, you can delete everything you don’t want (including comments).
      2) Purchase an ad-free, convenient PDF using the link just below the pattern title (where the pattern begins).
      3) Good ol’ copy-and-paste.

      Apart from not allowing comments on my blog posts at all, I’m not sure what more I could’ve done.

    • Karen January 5, 2016, 12:00 pm

      When you hit the print button, instead of hitting “print all”, click on the button that allows you to select which pages to print. Then you can select the range of pages you want to print, omitting the pages with comments.

  • Helen Hayes June 26, 2015, 11:00 pm

    I love this pattern ! I do the 1st 5 rounds then stop increasing & continue on to make the cutest hats. Thank you for this awesome pattern!!!!!

    Beautiful flower. Thank you for sharing the pattern.

  • Sandy June 29, 2015, 1:31 pm

    i am so confused on the location of the rounds and pedal rounds. I can’t even ask a question.
    The second round goes in the unused loop of the first round.
    where does the pedal round go?

  • Chris Mo July 1, 2015, 11:26 am

    Having problems wih redundant fabric (as the flower expands the flower buckles and is increasingly hard to force flat). New to crochet and hoped you might have suggestions – ?

    • Rebecca July 5, 2015, 8:00 am

      Try relaxing your tension on the increase rounds. Some people’s 1st round of petals do tend to do that, though. A nice-sized button in the center usually cures it, or you can take some fabric glue and force that first round down.

  • Linda July 1, 2015, 12:55 pm

    Thank you so very much for being generous and sharing the pattern for this never ending flower. I have had an idea like this for my bathroom rug but I wanted it washable. I will be making a few of these for different areas and I know my a couple of friends who will be asking for one, lol. Your idea of teaching us slowly over a few sessions is wonderful and unique to me. GREAT idea.
    I am very happy to have found you.

  • Rosetta July 2, 2015, 11:33 pm

    This is the perfect flower for a hat I made! The yarn I ordered for the wildflower bag hasn’t come yet so I’m making this while I wait. Thank you for your wonderful patterns

  • Ann July 3, 2015, 10:15 pm

    Very pretty. I have been looking for a flower like this. Thank you.

  • Jeanie Edwards July 3, 2015, 10:40 pm

    Rebecca,
    Thank you for sharing this.
    I’m still having a bit of an issue with this – all my issue, not yours.
    Have you ever thought of doing a video to show us how this is done?
    Personally, I would find it very helpful. Just something to consider.
    Thanks you,
    Jeanie.

    • Rebecca July 5, 2015, 7:59 am

      A video will come eventually. Until then, however, I do have one that might at least help you get started. The first two rounds of petals in this tutorial video are exactly the same pattern. Please note that after the 2nd round of petals, the video will no longer match up.

    Thank you for the pattern. I am thinking of making it bigger for a bed spread.

  • shirley whalen July 4, 2015, 11:03 am

    looks delightful, will it work with varigated yarn or should the xolor be the same throughout?

    • Rebecca July 5, 2015, 7:57 am

      I’ve seen some beautiful ones done with variegated yarn 🙂

  • Nancy July 4, 2015, 11:31 am

    This pattern is realy neat and also beautiful. The only thing I don’t understand is
    how to start the magic circle. Please help. Thanks

  • Sue Barnard July 6, 2015, 11:48 am

    im trying to find the directions for magic circle

  • Catherine July 8, 2015, 1:29 pm

    What a lovely idea so glad I have found you and talented. x

    • Betty Cochrane July 9, 2015, 7:09 am

      I made this into a pillow. I just made my own “pillow back” to make a pillow.
      Do you use any photos of finished products made with your pattern? I am disabled and crocheting is my favorite pastime. Thank you so much for the pattern. I am going to try making it in cotton, too. BJ

    Love this Never ending wildflower, am showing the “other Granny’s” at our get together on a Wed how to do it. We are planning a blanket for our fete, so will be using your granny square. It will be interesting to see the combinations of colour.
    Thank you so very much for this pattern.

    I love this pattern, but I’m still new to crocheting, could you possibly make a YouTube video tutorial? 🙂

    • Rebecca July 27, 2015, 10:18 am

      It’s on the to-do list! 🙂 In the meantime, I do have a video that might help get you started. It’s for the Wildflower Shoulder Bag, but the squares for the bag begin the same way this pattern does. It will get you through the first 2 rounds of petals.

  • Lacy August 3, 2015, 3:16 pm

    I love this flower! I used the square pattern as part of a baby afghan and I’m about to whip up a flower to accent a baby sun hat. Noticed a typo, though. Where it says “Hook:” you put “H (5.50mm)”, and H is 5.00mm, I is 5.50mm. Thank you so much for this pattern. Love it and the whole blog. 🙂

    • Rebecca August 17, 2015, 9:39 am

      I sure did! Thank you for spotting that!

    Oh, My God, that Never Ending Wild Flower is beautiful, very much but it’s complicated too. I don’t dare begin it… Sorry.
    Love

    • Rebecca September 1, 2015, 1:26 pm

  • Jessica Matlock August 29, 2015, 9:26 pm

    Have you tried a pointed petal version? Do you think it would work?

    • Rebecca September 1, 2015, 1:25 pm

      I’m actually planning to release a pointed petal version this fall 🙂

  • Julie September 5, 2015, 6:36 am

    this is an amazing pattern. I am a novice crocheter but carefully following your concise and well written pattern, I was able to duplicate it beautifully. I love the flowerbag pattern so might continue along and attempt to make it.

  • Maria September 9, 2015, 9:31 am

  • Roberta Burton December 25, 2015, 5:07 pm

    Beautiful flower design

  • Robin December 25, 2015, 8:20 pm

    I love this pattern but I do have a question. Would it be possible to use a sport weight yarn for a lighter lacier look and make it baby Afghan size? Or maybe size it for a prayer shawl?

    • Rebecca December 30, 2015, 9:54 am

      Yes, you can use any yarn and appropriately-sized hook 🙂

  • Doris walton December 25, 2015, 8:25 pm

    I’ve been looking for Xmas tree patterns, are there any available? I had crochet a table cloth and my friend cut and surged it. It looks very nice after I added a boarder but I would like to get some more patterns.

    • Rebecca December 30, 2015, 9:53 am

      I would check Ravelry.com! 🙂

  • Glenda Moore December 27, 2015, 11:51 am

  • Debra Kennedy January 11, 2016, 10:06 am

    A really versatile pattern – I am imagining many uses for it!

  • Arlene Schroeder January 11, 2016, 11:21 am

    This is the pattern that attracted me to Little Monkeys (besides the name, of course) Those little monkeys are so-o-o-o adorable. I like making things that look a lot more difficult than they are. This just fit the bill. I’m working on the Wildflower Shoulder Bag in off while & country blue. It’s turning out to be really cute. Have had raves about it when working on it in public places. I think the strap will be braided crocheted cords in the white & blue. Thanks for the pattern. Easy to read, easy to follow instructions.

  • Connie G January 11, 2016, 1:18 pm

    This is absolutely gorgeous. <3

  • Heather Navarro January 11, 2016, 5:23 pm

  • Caraspace January 16, 2016, 7:38 pm

    This is so pretty!

  • K-Squared January 18, 2016, 4:21 pm

    The power of love is always found in items that are made by hand – may they be a decoration or edible! When I was younger, my family had to do this kind of thing just to keep up with the bills! It happens, now, after injuries resulting from an accident that I have to find my own way to do things for fundraisers for items needed in the home! These are just wonderful for the holidays!

  • Carol Fairhurst January 21, 2016, 4:36 pm

    Thank you for this pattern, I have been looking for a nice flower pattern that lays flat and tidy. I want to tell you also that I have made a couple of hats from your hat patterns, LOVE THEM. You are so talented, thank you.

  • Erika vann February 2, 2016, 7:25 pm

    Hello! I love this, and I was thinking of using chunky thread and making a rug? Do you think it would work?

    • Rebecca February 3, 2016, 7:46 am

      This pattern will work for any size yarn/thread and appropriately-sized hook. 🙂

  • Pam Robertson February 4, 2016, 12:18 pm

    Looking forward to see what’s next! May the Lord bless you and your precious family!

  • Caroline Mårtensson March 28, 2016, 5:37 pm

    Hey! Really adore your flower, gonna make loads of them to cover my closet door ❤ A question: At the “2nd Round of Petals (FLO): CH2. DC in same ST. In next ST, DC, CH2, SL ST. (SL ST to next St, CH2, DC in same ST. In next ST, DC, CH2, SL ST) around. SL ST to base of 1st CH2. (12 petals)” isn’t it suppose to become 24 petals? Or what am I doing wrong. Again love your flower ❤

    • Caroline Mårtensson March 28, 2016, 5:50 pm

      Haha just looked at the video and figured it out, thanks yet again for an absolutely gorgeous flower ❤?

  • leona April 6, 2016, 8:54 pm

    Hi, your wildflower design is beautiful. I’m looking through your site for the pattern for the pictured cushion and afghan done in matching shades of green/ teal, and beige/OR grey with what looks like a little sparkly button in the center of the flower on the cushion. They are exquisite! Can you please steer me to where those patterns are?

    • Toni Willis April 12, 2016, 2:04 pm

      Beautiful design!!! So easy to follow instructions 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing!

  • Terra Kuhn April 18, 2016, 7:39 pm

    I absolutely love this pattern!! So easy, so fun! Thanks so much!

  • Jessica catlin April 19, 2016, 9:50 am

    What does 2tr mean

    • Rebecca April 27, 2016, 9:05 am

      TR = Triple/Treble Crochet.

  • Kara April 19, 2016, 9:56 pm

    I absolutely love this! Do you have the afghan pattern? I want my mother to make them both! They are beautiful….thank you!

  • barbe May 12, 2016, 12:25 am

    where can i get the pattern for both the pillow and throw ?

    • Rebecca May 15, 2016, 8:11 am

      If you’re referring to the gray and teal version, it’s not mine. I do not have a pattern to turn the flower into a throw and I’m not sure who is responsible for the variation. The blanket in that photo is Sophie’s Universe by Dedri Uys (you can find it on Ravelry).

  • Melissa Phelps May 14, 2016, 1:22 am

    Thank you for this pattern, I can wait to make it.
    One question: what yarn did you use on the sample flower that is on the couch pillow? It looks like it is variegated from dark grey to an aqua to a light grey/natural color. I LOVE that color scheme and would love to try that yarn out also. Thanks again for sharing your creative genius with us.

    • Rebecca May 15, 2016, 8:12 am

      That sample is not mine, it just keeps getting linked to me. I do not have a pattern to turn the flower into a pillow and I’m not sure who is responsible for the variation. The blanket in that photo is Sophie’s Universe by Dedri Uys (you can find it on Ravelry).

  • Peggy May 23, 2016, 3:50 am

    What a beautiful bag. I wanted to thank you for taking the time to make this tutorial. This will be my first bag, and your tutorial is what gives me the confidence that I can do it on my own.
    I wonder if you would you mind sharing a picture of your bag with your leather strap attached? I think that’s the way I will go but it would help to see what it looks like.
    Again, realllly appreciate your hard work here in sharing via this tutorial!

    Take Care,

  • Gillian Rabie May 26, 2016, 3:21 am

    Hi Rebecca,
    I came across this stunning never-ending flower of yours this morning and I instantly fell in love!! Thank you!
    I really love your website and will definitely follow you on it. 🙂 I am an absolute beginner crocheter, and have just gone into a tiny business with 2 friends of mine, selling mostly South African natural, hand-dyed and organic yarns, & stock a variety of knitting/crochet accessories. We are in Johannesburg, South Africa, and are all passionate about anything to do with wool/yarn.
    I do not wish to do anything illegal or offensive, and hope you will not be annoyed that I have posted a pic of your magnificent flower on our Facebook page, called The Yarn Tree. I am simply to trying to attract people’s attention & invite them to our studio,. Should we get a good enough response, we would love to hold a morning workshop in our studio, and crochet this flower together as a group.
    Please could you let me know if this would be a problem for you Rebecca?
    When I posted the flower pic on Facebook, I have mentioned your website.
    I hope what i have done is the “correct ” protocol and we haven’t offended you in any way, as that is not our intention.
    Thanks very much and we look forward to seeing more of your fab patterns and ideas.
    Kind regards
    Gill, from The Yarn Tree, Johannesburg

    • Rebecca June 11, 2016, 12:20 pm

      Hi Gill,

      You’re welcome to use my pattern in your workshops as long as you either (1) give the guests the link to the pattern and have them print off their own copy to bring, or (2) purchase enough ad-free PDFs for everyone in the group. Thanks! 🙂

  • Peg Scott June 10, 2016, 12:15 pm

    I love this pattern and my plan is to make the flower so large my grand daughter can use as a throw…I am really confused on how to increase the pattern….help

    • Rebecca June 11, 2016, 12:19 pm

      Have you started the pattern yet? My guess is that by the time you get through my instructions, you’ll understand what you’re doing and be able to add rounds 🙂

  • Elaine loonam June 26, 2016, 3:09 pm

    I love the never ending patterns. I’ve tried them all and different variation of colors. I would like to make a big flower, 9 or 10 petals, but I keep messing up the count for the first row of the square. I know there must be a formula for the number of hdc and sc but I can’t figure it out. Can you help me?

  • Doreen Patton June 26, 2016, 4:46 pm

    Love this pattern. On my 14th petal row and want to turn it into a baby blanket, how do I make it into a square at this size. Can anyone help? Thanks

  • Siobhan Madden July 2, 2016, 6:10 am

  • Jenn Costa September 18, 2016, 9:17 pm

    • Jenn Costa September 18, 2016, 11:55 pm

      Sorry just wanted to know if there is a pattern for the blAnket as welll.

      • Rebecca September 19, 2016, 1:32 pm

        Are you referring to the aqua and gray blanket pictured with the wildflower pillow in the photo that’s going around? If you look up in the blog post, I addressed that and provided a link. It’s not my pattern. 🙂

  • Stephanie September 23, 2016, 1:25 pm
