Loopy Curly Crochet Brooch

As promised here is another simple but cute crochet brooch to make for Christmas!


This is the flower I added to a kokeshi doll made for a customer who lives all the way across the ocean in Malta!  hmmm...the flower looks a bit flat in this picture..LOL.


The Loopy Curly flower is made in 3 separate pieces sewn together.

Materials : I used a sports weight yarn with a 3/0 (2.3 mm) crochet hook. For the Kokeshi Doll, I used double strands of crochet thread.

  1. Flower Layer 1 : Chain 6, slip stitch in starting chain to form a circle.  {Chain 10, single crochet in starting circle} 10 times. End. Set aside
  2. Flower Layer 2 : Chain 6, slip stitch in starting chain to form a circle.  {Chain 15, single crochet in starting circle} 17 times. End. Set aside. 
  3. Flower Layer 3: Chain 6, slip stitch in starting chain to form a circle.  {Chain 20, single crochet in starting circle} 20 times. End, leaving a about a 10" tail. Set aside.
  4. Layer the three pieces atop of each.  Thread 10" tail from flower layer 3 to sew layers together.
  5. Embellish the brooch as you wish : rick rack, ribbons, cotton lace, etc. Attach to back.
  6. Cut a circle out of felt and sew to back of flower; sew on brooch pin.
Happy Day
