I designed this pattern a few years ago to adorn a hat for Gracie. My pink Peonies were blooming in the garden and I wanted to recreate them somehow for decoration. It is a bit abstract so I suppose this is my "interpretation" of a Peony - in crochet!

Enjoy the flower and please share with me how you used it. But please remember this is a pattern I'm offering free for your enjoyment, please respect the copyright and do NOT sell or re-distribute this pattern in any way. Thank you!

Vintage Peony Flower Crochet Pattern
Face/Bath puff Tawashi, Hat Adornment, Brooch

Copyright PrincessGraceDesigns 2007

Yarn used: Worsted Weight Cotton, small amounts of 2 different colors
Hook: G

Experiment with different weights of yarn and hooks to get the look you want! I have used small thread all the way up to bulky yarn. Cotton yarn makes a nice face/bath puff or dish scrubber! Attach to hats or scarves, glue on a pin back for use as a brooch, add a chain loop for hanging and use for a dish scrubber or face/bath puff.

Chain 5, join to form a ring.
Work 10 sc into the ring, join with sl st to first sc.
*Chain 5, skip first sc, sc in next sc*, repeat around. (5 Ch-5 spaces)

Large Outer Petals:
Row 1 - Slip stitch into 1st ch-5 sp, work 9 TR in ch-5 sp, ch 4, turn.

Row 2 - Work 1 tr in each tr across, ch 1, turn.

Row 3 - Sc in same st, sk 2 st, 3 dc in next st, 1 dc in each of next 2 st, 3 dc in next, skip 2 st, sc in top of turning chain. Ch 4, slip st in top of last TR on Row 1 below, ch 4, sl st ihn NEXT ch-5 space of beginning.

Repeat rows 1 thru 3 for large petal 4 more times. (5 petals total).

Small Inner Petals:

Now work in remaining UNworked sc’s of the beginning ring.

Row 1 - Slip st into next unworked sc, *ch 5, sl st in same sc, ch 5, sl st in NEXT unworked sc.* Repeat * around, slip st to 1st sl st. (10 ch-5 spaces)

Row 2 - Ch 4, *work 9 TR into ch-5 sp. Ch 4, sl st into next ch-5 sp. Repeat * around, sl st to first sc. Fasten off. (10 small petals)
