Hydrangea bushes are usually recognized by their large, round flowers. These flowers come in a variety of blues and pinks depending on the acidity of your soil.
Our hydrangea pattern utilizes the crocodile stitch to mimic the layers of petals. If you’re not familiar with the crocodile stitch, you can find a more in-depth tutorial here.
This flower can be worked with any weight of yarn. Finer weights will create a smaller flower, and bulkier weights will create a larger flower. Use the hook size appropriate for the yarn you choose. We used worsted weight yarn and a size H-8 hook in our samples.

Oh, My what a beautiful pattern… Thank you so much…..I made one variegated Blue,aqua. purple. and glues a pin to it and beads in the center….and so many compliments… then I decided to make a green base with 4 leaves then use red yarn to make a Chrysanthemum but on the chain 2 and turn to make the other side of the flower petal I did a picot and it looks so real….
I have had several request for them too…. I worn mine on a black suit jacket….
