    Hi Tara, I LOVE your work and your blog! I made these flowers, used different sized hooks until I liked my work (I’ve learned that I crochet verrry tight :-(
    May I have your permission to post my flowers on my blog and my finished ponytail holders (once I finish them and take decent pictures), with a link to your blog?

    I am very new at blogging. I confess that this is the first time I am writing to another artist.

    Thank you for your time,

    Thank you so much. This is what I was looking for. Have you ever thought of posting videos? It would be so cool. :)

      When I was first learning to crochet, a very kind woman in a craft store, told me to read the pattern “one stitch at a time”. Best advice ever! Hope that helps.

    When sewing them together, do I use yarn or thread? Love these flowers and the colors. Thanks for sharing your talent.

      you put the hook into the middle of the loop made by the 4 chain stitches, not into the chain stitches themselves

    • bitt

      I don’t get it either. Mine sort of have a star in the middle, which is fine but not the same as yours.

    Hi, I tried making this many times but I always get a one stitch gap between the first and last petal so the petals are not neatly sealed there. Did I miss something?

    Ohe Thank you so much!!! This is what I have been searching for! I am a Lefty and I love your pictures with clear instructions with the photo. This will be a huge help for me to switch it to left hand. I think this would make an excellent video…love your blog!!!!

    Thank you from me too! I’m trying to teach myself to crochet using all the great training material out there. Thanks to people like you I see bushels full of creativity out there. I tried doing this with cotton yarn, but am not happy with the result. Do you have any tips, do’s and dont’s when using cotton yarn?
    Keep up creating beauty!

    This is my first visit to your site. So far, I love it. Your directions are clear and concise, easy to understand and I love the pics that go with. These flowers are adorable and could be used in so many ways. thanks for the patterns and for the wonderful site too. Great work. I will definitely be back for more!!

    I had some difficulty following the instructions, but actually I always do at first. Just kept trying and now I’m going real fast :-) The only thing is the flowers won’t stay flat. It’s just as if the petals are too big for the center. I made a magic ring to start from. What could be the problem?

    Found original photo on Pinterest which linked to your page. How so we make 6 petals like you show in the first photo? Do you add more chains and single crochets? I am a novice and am trying to figure this out on my own…which has been a bit challenging! Thank you for sharing this too cute pattern

    I want to make a baby blanket out of these puff flowers. How would you recommend I attach them together?

  15. Fena Reply

    I took this, added larger petals on the back post between the puff stitch petals. Then took Flowered shank button and slid a bobby pin thru it and put that thru the center of the crocheted flower. Tah dah! Flowers for your hair!

    looking for the pattern that you had posted last week for Christmas star made from paper

    I don’t crochet, I knit, but I know that finer work is definitely done in crocheting. I can read a difficult pattern in knitting, but the simplest crocheting pattern confuses me. I saw, and loved, your puff stitch flowers so I am venturing into trying to crochet one for a baby hat I’m making. You do such lovely work. Wish me luck!

    Love the pattern do you know how much wool, approximately, I would need for a baby blanket, or perhaps how many flowers I could get from 100g wool?

    • Tara Murray

      I wish I knew the answer to that question. A blanket out of these flowers would be lovely! in fact, I think I’ve seen one.

      I wish I could have been more help! Good luck and happy crocheting!

    i found a difference in the pattern directions.. may i ask why you say to ch3 and insert in” next stitch” instead of” same” stitch? In your directions you do 2 puff stitches .. repeat 4 more times that is where i find the difference from.

    Hi, realise this is an old blog but need to know the easiest and fastest way to join these flowers together to make a blanket please

  21. Rhonda Reply

    What size would you use for a baby blanket? And how do you connect each of the flowers into a blanket?

    I found a YouTube video by Bella Coca that showed how to connect them into a blanket.
