༺ How To Crochet A Rose Hair Flower Accessory ༻

Hello lovelies! (•ᵕ ᴗ ᵕ•)❀


This is a simple tutorial on how to crochet a flower hair clip like the one above.  You might have noticed me wearing it in my hair in my last Mother & Daughter outfit post?  Anyway, now you can make one just like it for yourself!


I do not have my usual step by step photos in this tutorial, as it mostly about following the crochet pattern, so if you have any questions; please do not hesitate to ask.  ( ^ _ ^)∠☆ 

Materials List:

  • Yarn in two different colours {I used 2 ply cotton yarn in ivory & pink}
  • Crochet hook in the appropriate size for the ply of your wool
  • Hair clip finding {I used a mini millinery barrette as the clip}
  • Needle for sewing the flower to the finding


I used a 1.75mm hook with my yarn.  For your standard 3-4 ply wool, a 2.00 - 3.25mm hook is recommended.  Hook & yarn chart.


ch – chain
sk – skip
sc - single crochet
dc – double crochet
sl st - slip stitch
* – repeat


The Pattern:

~  Flower Centre  ~

Ch 21.
Row 1: *Dc, ch1, dc* in fifth ch from hook. *Ch1, sk1. Dc, ch 1, dc in next stitch* till the end (repeat 8 times).  You should end up with 9 double crochet V’s.  Ch 3 and turn.
Row 2: In first ch1 space between the double crochet V’s, dc 4 times. *Sl st in next ch1 space between the double crochet V’s. Dc 5 times* till the end (repeat 9 times).  Sl st in last stitch in row.

Step 1:  Fasten off and leave long tail for sewing. With the tail on the right side, roll the flower inwards (clockwise motion), placing the petals how you would like and sewing to hold it in place.

Row 2: *Sk 1 sc, 2 dc in next sc, sk next sc, 1 dc in next sc, continue from * across, ch 3 turn

Step 2:  Take flower centre and roll the outside petals around it, sewing the petals in place with the rest of the flower centre’s tail.

Step 3:  Using the flower petals’ long tail sew the hair clip finding onto the back of the flower. 

Step 4:   Wear and enjoy your crochet flower hair clip. (✿◠‿◠)
