I'm trying to find a crochet (prefer, but would consider knit) flower pattern that calls for a size G or H hook but makes small flowers that I can use to decorate tea cozies and hats. So far, the few I have found makes such big flowers! and something that is easy for a beginner like me! lol

A free pattern too!

Thanks. That is the first place I looked. I was hoping for a specific pattern though. I don't have time to search the hundreds of them looking for one that takes a "G" or "H" hook... I've been going through them one by one, but need to complete the flowers by tomorrow! lol

Have you tried using a finer yarn that suits your hook, then use your pattern of choice. Works for me.

All I have is worsted weight.

I did find this pattern but was hoping for more of a variety of flowers:

Guess I'll just make a bunch of these up in different colors unless someone can direct me to some more patterns.

Try this website. crochet.about.com/od/freecrochetpatterns/tp/Crochet_Flowers.htm
or try googling: worsted weight crochet flowers. There were several links tossed up
Hope this helps. Happy hunting

I know you prefer crochet, but this is knitted, and would work for any weight yarn, and any size needle. It's from a baby pattern to be used as an embellishment on a dress. Cute and works up FAST! CO 36. *K1, BO4*=12 stitches. Leaving 12 in tail, cut yarn and thread it through all stitches and pull tight. DK yarn on a #6 makes a flower about 1 inch across.

This sounds cool, but I don't understand the instructions. I am confused about the BO part. I knit one stitch and then I knit again and then knit again and bind that st off. Then repeat. When I got done, I only had 8 sts, not 12.

Very simple flower pattern:
All stitches are worked into the first CH you make.
CH4 work 1DC into 1st CH, CH2, SLST into same place as last stitch, *CH2, 1DC, CH2, SL ST* repeat as many times as you want petals.
Stitch a little yellow or green centre if you want to.
Worked in pink with green centre they look like cherry blossom.
Leaf:
CH5 or 6, 1SC into 2nd CH, 1HDC into next, 1DC into each to the last CH, 1HDC into last, repeat for more leaves before you fasten off. Leave enough to stitch to the back of the blossom. This is when you can work the centre if you want to.
You can make a second round of petals if you want to by working CH2 loops behind the first row of petals, working a SL ST between the petals, then work a larger petal with 2 or 3 DCs instead of 1.
I can post a link to a pic if you want it.
Have fun.

I do not get this pattern at all. Where it says 1 dc into 1st chain does that mean the first chain made of the 1st chain from the hook. Then, where do you slst, the place you made the 1 dc? Where do you repeat the petals?

help!! lol

All stitches, including the SL ST, are worked into the first CH you made.

Picture may help so scroll down through my album and you will see some pics of necklaces I made using this wee flower.
If necessary, I will make a flower and take pics of each stage as I go, if that will be more help.
Let me know how you get on.
Have fun.
