This crochet flower stitch is so delicate, and not as complicated as you would think.
The flower’s petals are made with the puff stitch, while the rest of the pattern consists of chains, single crochet, and double crochet.

What can you make with the Lace Flower Crochet stitch?

This lacy crochet pattern will make a gorgeous scarf, can also be made as a very impressive table runner, or as a decorative addition to a garment.
For this tutorial, I made a beautiful bookmark with this crochet stitch, which will make a wonderful gift for all book lovers!
scroll down for the pattern.

I also incorporated this stitch into my Flowers for Simone Shawl.
This shawl is worked from side to side, into a triangle shape. The flower lace pattern is worked in rows, increasing each row on one side of the shawl and decreasing on the other side creating “steps”.
You can make the shawl as big as you’d like by repeating the main pattern.

What type of yarn should you use for the Flower Lace Crochet stitch?

I recommend using a thinner (Fingering, Sprot, DK weights) cotton yarn, preferable 100% cotton, or a fiber with a higher precentage of cotton. This will create the best stitch definition and will emphasize the flowers in this pattern.
You can find wonderful yarn options HERE.
