Sharing is caring, lets spread the word

This Crochet A Long is completely free on my blog only.  You will be able to follow along with all 9 instalments.  Or alternatively you can buy the pretty, printable, premium PDF to add to your pattern collection while supporting a small business owner.  You will also get automatic email updates of when the next part of the CAL is released.  If you are following the blog, you will need to keep checking the page on the dates for its release rather than being notified.

Why should I buy the PDF version?

This is a question that I get asked A LOT.  So, I will try my best to let you know why I think the PDF trumps the web version.

  • Printable. Easy to manage and print out so you can take with you anywhere.

  • No ads anywhere.

  • It is pretty. I do spend a little time trying to get it to look just right so that not only do you have the functional pattern but it’s nice to look at also.

  • You get both US and UK terminology.

  • It supports me and enables me to continue to create content for you to enjoy.

  • For this CAL you will get automatic updates for each live part.

  • At the end of the CAL you will get a combined PDF

Click the button below to buy your own copy now. It’s just $3.75 USD or £3 GBP!

I really don’t want to buy the PDF version.

That’s ok, I totally understand and best of all, you don’t have to.  You can still make the whole wreath from the free version of the pattern on my website!

I don’t want to buy anything BUT I want to support you, is that possible?

Yes! Very much so and I am very much grateful for this.  You can share the website with your crochet friends.  Share your makes on Facebook Groups and on Instagram and mention me.  Word of mouth is the very best way to help support me and get the Flo’s Crafty Crochet name out there. I also have a Buy Me A Coffee button at the bottom of the page which is literally just that, the equivalent of buying me a drink lol

3.5mm hook

Green or Yellow scrap yarn I used Paintbox Cotton DK in various shades (or any yarn)

Stitch Markers


Tapestry needle


A stitch marker is recommended for keeping track of your stitches for each round. 

Increase means to place 2 stitches in the same stitch from the previous round. 

Decrease means to work over 2 stitches to reduce to 1 from the previous round. 

Instructions inside ( ) are worked into the one

SSLST – Surface slip stitch

Picot stitch – A picot here means; Chain 3, slip stitch back down through the top loops of the previous stitch and the 1st CH, creating a little bobble effect. (see sunflower photo)




Round 1

CH 8, in 2nd CH from hook, SC, HDC, DC, 2DC, DC, HDC in the last CH work 3SC.

Now working the unworked loops on the underside work:

HDC, DC, 2DC, DC, HDC, SC, SL ST to 1st to close.

You can leave the leaf at this point or you can work into it to create more interest with a contrasting yarn

Optional Round 2 (With new colour)

CH1 , SC into each of the next 8 ST. At the end point work, (SC, Pic SC) then continue to SC to the end.  CH3 and SL ST back into the CH to create the stem.

Optional Round

SSLT down the centre of the leaf to give the appearance of a vein.  Try to keep them loose and not taut.

F/O and weave in ends.
