CROCHET PATTERNS (Crochet Flower Pattern #2 Pansy) – 365 Flower Bouquet Project


Pansy Crochet Pattern

I've chosen a Pansy for today's crochet flower pattern. Its latin name is Viola Tricolor.  Pansies are known as cool weather flowers, they have a heart shape with overlapping petals in bright colours. My pansies this year are a yellow & black variety, quite big in size. It was raining today when I took this photo, you could say she's a bit under the weather …


Pansy Crochet Pattern

Yarn: tapestry cotton in colour A=white, colour B=black and colour C=yellow

Crochet hook: 2.5mm

Details of components:

The centre of the flower is white, then there are three different types of petals we need to create:

1. 1 large petal: main colour is yellow with a black area in the middle = Petal 1

2. 2 petals on the two sides: colour yellow with a black middle = Petal 2

3. 2 large petals which are positioned at top, partially overlapping each other: colour yellow = Petal 3.

Start: using A, make 5ch, join with sl st into a ring

    Read through this twice, what size hook did you use???

  2. meli_b says:

    Hi Pat,
    I used a 2.5mm hook.

    inspired with your project. I think that there is 2sc is missing in R6 of petal 2 before 1sl st in A white ring

  5. Stephanie says:

    This is a beautiful pattern! I have a question about Petal 3. It appears that the yellow thread starts at where Petal 1 and 2 meet (since Petal 2 has 2 rows of yellow). Petal 3 has 8 rows of yellow, which would make it end where Petals 1 and 2 meet (again); however, the pattern makes it seem like it should actually end on the other side of Petal 2 (in the white ring, so that it can continue on the other half later in the pattern.) Is there a row added or missing from the Petal 3 instructions? Thanks!

  6. I am having the hardest time following this pattern. Are the “rounds” like “rows” as far as the petal goes? If each round is a row, after the chain 2 at the beginning of round three, do I go back as if it’s the second row? Cause I only get to the middle of the second “round” that way and I don’t know what to do next. I’m sorry if I seem dense. I’ve been crocheting for a year now and I understand it very well, I’m just lost on this pattern.

      Hi Nancy,

      I’ve updated the pattern, I hope now it’s much easier to understand. The first patterns were a bit hard to get started with and I never had time to go back and check them.

    is there a video?

  8. robin says:

    this is the hardest pattern ive ever done! im trying so hard but i dont think im going to make it! Im confused about the parenthesis. Assume its two stitches together but your first instructions dont use ( ) yet there are two stitches together…? sorry! oh i wish i could get this!

    • Camelia says:

      Hi Robin,

      I’ve made some changes to the pattern and eliminated the intriguing paranthesis. I hope it will make sense now. I didn’t work the updated pattern, so I hope it is still works OK.


      • Stephanie says:

        Hi Camelia,

        I still have a question (posted above) about Petal 3. I think there should be an odd number of rows in order for the petal to start where petals 1 and 2 connect, and end at the white ring, unless I’m reading something very wrong.


  9. Sharon says:

    I am so happy to see other people confused. I have ripped this thing so many times now. I am determined to get it. I have been crocheting all my life and the instructions are so vague. The very first sc of every row gets done into what? The first sc or the ch2, it is trial and error. Love the look of the pattern, that is the only thing making me determined.

  10. Audrey says:

    Could you make a video tutorial please?

  11. Michelle Barrette says:

    what is LHS?

    “Petal 2

    R1: tie in color B & make 3sc in the A ring on the LHS of petal 1, 1ch, turn work”
