Hydrangea – Free Crochet Pattern



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.
