I am sharing the patterns for three brooches which are delightfully easy to make and with a little fantasy and imagination, you can turn them into miniature art pieces. They are fantastic Christmas gifts and stocking fillers.

All crocheted on brooch pins with a sport yarn and a 1.9mm hook.

Crochet terms used: chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc), treble (tr), picot. American terminology used.

How to crochet on a brooch pin
Crocheting on a brooch pin can be rather challenging and frustrating. The closed part of the brooch and not the needle part is the place where this is crocheted. After you make the initial chain, I recommend you do the rest of the chaining by holding the brooch at the back - as I show in the picture, holding the needle for support while you make the chains. Once done, it is a piece of cake.
