How Do You Crochet a Floral Lace?

To create a floral crochet lace pattern, the main idea is to create a flower motif and work chains around it to get the lacy and airy fabric.

In this crochet lace flower stitch, the flower’s petals are made using the puff stitch, where the lace pattern is created by making chains and double crochet stitches.

This stitch is a bit similar to a flower mesh crochet stitch, but denser.

What Can You Make With the Crochet Lace Flower Stitch?

This lacy crochet pattern will make a gorgeous crochet lacy scarf, and can also be made as a very impressive table runner, or as a decorative addition to a garment when creating a floral lace crochet pattern.

I used this lacy floral crochet stitch in the Diadem Bookmark, it’s a quick and fun project and a great gift for Teachers Day.

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.

You can get this pattern on Ravelry and Etsy.


What Type of Yarn Should You Use For Crochet Lace Stitches?

I recommend using a thinner (Fingering, Sprot, DK weights) cotton yarn, preferable 100% cotton, or a fiber with a higher percentage of cotton.

Using cotton yarn will create the best stitch definition and will emphasize the flowers in this pattern.

For my tutorial, I used 100% mercerized cotton Sport (#2) yarn. I like this kind of cotton since it’s soft, but still sturdy enough, and got this nice shine to it.

  4. This was just what i was looking for! My only question is how do you decrease it thx 🙂

    1. Hi Queenie,
      I haven’t tried decreasing this stitch, I do have a pattern that increase this stitch the Flowers for Simone Shawl.
      So maybe try and use the same logic for decrease, omit an element (flower or 3dc) every 2 rows.
      I hope it helps 🙂
