Posy Blossoms is an original crochet pattern by June Gilbank.

This is a versatile mix-and-match pattern to make sweet miniature flowers in seven designs with two leaves. Make each blossom in one or two colours of your choice; stack the smaller blossoms on the larger ones in the same or contrasting colours; combine your blossoms into a unique posy.

A few ideas for using these blossoms…

  • Use a single flower to embellish a hairclip
  • Stitch two or three to a bag or purse
  • Combine into a larger posy for a brooch or pin
  • Stitch around the neckline of a t-shirt or cardigan
  • Embellish a photo frame
  • Decorate your amigurumi
  • Create floral crocheted jewellery

(The 3rd and 4th images here show an example you could make with this pattern: a flower hairclip made from 3x blossom A with the knotted centre, and 1x double leaf I.)
