crocheted peony brooch tutorial






I have had requests for the pattern for the crochet peony brooch I made here.
I used a size G hook and Caron Simply Soft yarn. Of course, you could use any size hook or yarn/thread for this flower.


Begin with a slip knot.





Chain 6.






Join in a ring with a slip stitch.





Round 1: Chain 1 (counts as first sc.) Work 14sc into ring for a total of 15 sc.
Join with slip stitch.





Round 1: Chain 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc into base of 3 chain, 3 dc into each sc.






End with a slip stich in top of 3 chain.






Round 2: Chain 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc into base of chain 3, 3 dc into each dc, ending with a slip stitch into top of chain 3.
(edit: 12/07/09 -- Thank you to a very insightful email -- I see that the original tutorial had a mistake on round 2. The mistake has been corrected and I hope no one else was confused with my directions for this step. And a *huuuuuuuge* thank you to Marion for pointing this out to me!!)

Round 3: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc into base of 3rd chain, 3 dc into each dc, end with slip stitch in top of 3ch.






Round 4: Work same as round 3.





Fasten off and weave in end.




To make fabric leaves:
Trace circle onto fabric choice for leaves. I used a jar lid.





Find center of circle by ironing a crease down the middle.





(Does this all seem familiar? Yup. It's just like the petals from the fabric flower tutorial I did here.)
Using a rotary cutter, cut down the center for 2 pieces.





Fold piece in half, right sides together. Sew a seam down straight edge.





Turn right side out.




Hand sew a running stitch on open edge.





Gather tightly. Secure with knot.





Hand sew to backside of crocheted flower.





I have a collection of vintage earrings. Loooooove to collect these, by the way!




By gently pulling apart the back from the front, I can easily use the perforated earring top to sew to the center of my flower.




You could also use a button, beads for the center -- or even leave it plain.




Trace a circle onto felt and sew to cover the backside of flower.




Attach a pinback.






A gorgeous, crocheted flower brooch.
I would love to see yours if you make one!

Thanks a lot for this nice tutorial! I've done it till round 2 and I love it.

Anonymous said...

I'm confused at round 2.k it says there`s an edit but doesn't say what the edit is.

log basket said...

Wow Dawn thank you so much for all your awesome tutorials they are the best I've come accross and it makes it so much easier with the nice big pictures :)

Linda said...

This is exactly what I needed to see to finish the back of a Pumpkin Pie brooch pattern I found on Lion Brand website. Your photos are so perfect, not only exquisitely beautiful, but also to show detail on how-to! Very creative too, and I will now embellish the brooch and use the inspiration to create other brooches.

I also love vintage jewelry for crafting. I like how you've organized yours. Might have to try that instead of squirreling it away in random spots!

Deborah Friedrich said...

So perfect tutorial! And so cute flower. Thank you very much for sharing it! God bless you.

Bloomy said...

Thank you for a great idea and tutorial. Love the idea of using earrings for the centre. I used a silver button from my collection. I skipped the backing fabric, crocheted a couple of simple leaves & put this onto a barrette to make a funky hair grip. It's a great little birthday pressie for my neighbour.

Jolanda said...

Thanks forthe great tutorial and the great effort you put in it. I used the flower tot make a keychain. If you like, you can see it onmy weblog: http://creatiefbezig.blogspot.nl/2013/06/juffen-kadootje.html

Thanks - lovely tutorial - however you have 2 round 1s, which is a bit confusing. I managed to figure it out though :)
