Free Pansy Crochet Pattern

April 4th, 2009 · 10 Comments

It is chilly, cloudy and windy here.  We don’t have any flowers around my neighborhood yet and I am so desperate for spring!  Here is a really easy and quick crochet pattern for making your own flowers!



Crochet Pansy

Pattern created by Gayle

Size: Approximately 3 inches


  • Worsted weight yarn.  I used a medium purple for the petals and yellow for the center of the flower.
  • Crochet Hook – Size G

Gauge: Not important

Abbreviations: sc = single crochet, ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, st = stitch, tr = triple crochet

Back Petals

  1. With purple, chain 2.
  2. 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Join with sl st.
  3. ch 3
  4. tr in same st as you joined in
  5. 2 tr in next st
  6. ch 3
  7. sl st in same st as you did the 2 tr’s in. (First petal is now formed.)
  8. *ch 3, tr in next st, 2 tr in next st, ch3, sl st in same st as you did the 2 tr’s in.*  twice, finish off (This forms the 2nd and 3rd petals.)
Front Petals
  1. With yellow, chain 2.
  2. 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook.  Join. Finish off.
  3. Join purple onto one of the yellow sc’s with a sl st
  4. *ch3, tr in the same st as you joined in, 2 tr in the next st, ch 3, sl st in same st as the st as you did the 2 tr’s in. *(This forms the first petal.)
  5. sl st in the next 3 st
  6. Repeat step 4 to form the second petal.
  7. sl st into the first st where you joined the purple yarn to the yellow.
  8. Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing front and back petals together.

    Pansies are just the happiest flower. I’m with ELK, I think it is the color combination. I haven’t crocheted in years– I might have to hunt the hook!
