Free Crochet Pattern...Flowery Shawl Pin!


I will be giving the Zinnia Flower Shawl as a gift soon and wanted to make a pin to match.  This little pin will help keep your shawl in place, and looks fabulous too!


Click here for the Zinnia Flower Shawl Pattern...




Here's what you'll need for pin as shown:


  • G (4.0 mm) crochet hook (for circle)
  • I (5.5 mm) crochet hook (for flower)
  • Scraps of yarn in two colors (yarn shown is sock yarn, Cascade Sock & Dream In Color)
  • 1 Button
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Bar pin back or safety pin

Sizing:


  • Pin shown measures 1.5 inches across.  However using different yarn/hooks will yield other sized pins.

Note: When you make a pin to match your shawl, use a similar (or same) yarn as the shawl.  My shawl was crocheted in sock yarn, so I used sock yarn to make my pin.  Check the yarn label for hook recommendation.



Instructions for each part:


Flower (shown in green):

Foundation: Chain 5 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1:  Work (3 dc, sl st) into center of ring six times, then join with a slip stitch to close flower and fasten off.

Circle (shown in variegated yarn):

Foundation: Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1:  Work 12 hdc into the center of the ring, then join with a slip stitch to close circle and fasten off.

Finishing & Assembly;

Weave in all ends.  Stack components, bottom/flower, middle/circle, top/button, and seam together with tapestry needle and matching yarn.  With matching yarn, stitch pin backing to the pin.  Weave in any ends that remain.

  1. Oh! I already liked the shawl, and now you've sweetened it even more with the flower! My two favorite things to crochet! I just love the colors you choose for the Zinnia Shawl . After I finish the 3 shawls, 2 wraps, poncho And 2 scarfs I'm over the halfway mark on at the moment the Zinnia shawl looks like it's next, or that lovely mesh scarf you made, widened to make it a wrap for summertime! Thank you for all the wonderful projects complete with instructions, photo AND video tutorials! You work very hard!
