Flowers meant childhood to her. The sweet smell of Lily of the valley filled her nose before she could even see her grandma’s house. The front garden always bloomed with all the different flowers. She loved spending Sundays with her grandma, looking after the precious plants. The winter was slowly creeping upon them and the first hard frost killed the last flowers in the front garden. Her grandma found the long dark evenings hard, so she set herself a task to cheer her up.
Making cheerful crochet flowers was the plan
It was Sunday, Grandma was sitting in her reclining chair with painted flowers in her usual spot looking out the window. They were sipping on a cup of hot chocolate. The guilty pleasure overflowing with mini pink and white marshmallows steaming up her glasses. They sat in silence both knowing how much they missed spending time in the front garden. Browsing through 10 Free Cheerful Crochet Flower Patterns she knew she had every project she needed to put the smile back onto her grandma’s face.

“Can we grow a sunflower?” asked the boy. It was his absolute favorite flower and he loved planting the seeds with grandpa and watching it grow high into the sky.

She set an ice cold glass of lemonade onto the sunflower coasters she made as a surprise. You can find the free crochet pattern here.

Crochet Dogwood Flower
A blank canvas was staring her in the face. She was a mixed medium artist renowned for her art pieces combining painting with crochet. The local flower shop commissioned her to make a window display for their 10 year celebration. As she picked up her bag, a metal crochet hook tumbled down and played a tune bouncing on the hard wooden floor. A simple crochet flower is all I need, she thought, as a wave of inspiration shook every cell in her body. The dogwood flower pattern can be found here.
Easy 3D Crochet Rose
An empty crystal vase is collecting dust at the top of the kitchen cabinet next to grandpa’s cuckoo clock that has just announced lunchtime. Grandpa used to bring his wife a single red rose every time he’s been away. She would bury her porcelain white cheeks into the sweet smelling petals and blush with young love.

Crochet Flower Crown
Only 6 weeks to go, she thought, gently rubbing her pregnant belly. She couldn’t wait to meet the little boy growing inside her. But she also wanted to remember this feeling of closeness forever. She placed the crochet flower crown her grandma wore on her wedding day in 1941 onto her head and fixed her blonde curly hair. “I am ready” she said to the photographer as she let the white silky robe fall to the floor.

“Three, two, one!” she tossed the bouquet behind her on the happiest day of her life. She married her best friend, her high school sweetheart!

Darling Flower Face Rounds
The applause was echoing through the whole theater. The smell of the old wooden boards on the stage filled her nostrils but she loved the smell, the smell of hard work All the blood, sweat and tears she invested into her performance.

She entered the room and was instantly greeted with smiles and hugs.

It was Sunday. She picked up the car keys but hung them back up. The weather got warmer so she decided to walk. Strolling up the road to her grandmas house she couldn’t help but stop and take a deep breath in.
Suddenly her slow walk turned into a fast gallop. She burst through the front door with excitement, ran straight over to the big kitchen window and opened it wide. The breeze caught grandma’s perfectly styled grey locks of hair. “Can you smell it, grandma?”
“Yes, dear! They are back!”
