These beautiful flowers are quite different from others you’ve crocheted, but they certainly stand out!
These Kanzashi Flowers are Inspired by the traditional Hana Kanzashi flowers women in Japan wear on their hair ribbons.
Vlogger Donna Wolfe wanted to recreate this look for her projects and as you can see, she has done a truly wonderful job.
The flower has a unique 3D look but is flat on the back so fits nicely on hats, scarves, shawls, or any project you add it to.
She’s also topped each flower off with a beautiful button, which we think adds a really nice touch! Best of all, this flower is super simple to make and can be made into virtually any size you’d like.
Crochet Kanzashi Flower Video Tutorial
In this video, you’ll see how these simple flowers are made. An F/3.75mm crochet hook is recommended to replicate the small flower, but as with all crochet flowers you could use any yarn and hook combo you’d like. Just be sure the yarn fits the gauge of the hook. To make this small flower, you’ll need under 20 yards of yarn (she used Red Heart Super Saver) – Click Play above to view ^
