Today I decided to go for a yellow flower. So far in my collection I’ve made Purple Lavender Crochet Flower, White Primrose Crochet Flower and Light Blue Aster Crochet Flower so yellow will break it up nicely.
I had a problem with naming the flower, there are 2 suspects, one flower is called Cat’s Ear – Hypochaeris radicata and second is called Autumn Hawkbit – Scorzoneroides autumnalis. They both look exactly the same for me so I think I will go ahead and name my yellow crochet flower The Autumn Hawkbit as it sounds a bit better then Cat’s ear :). It’s a very common flower and I didn’t really want to say it but this lovely flower is classified as weed 😉 but never mind I like it because my son always picks them up and gives them to me as a nice gesture and it matches perfectly to my collection of wildflowers from Free Crochet Pattern a day challenge.
AUTUMN HAWKBIT CROCHET FLOWER
Autumn Hawkbit Free Crochet Flower Pattern
For this pattern I used Bernat Satin Yarn
Color A- Soft Fern (green)
Color B – Dandelion (yellow)
Crochet Hook 4mm
I currently use Knit Pro crochet hooks as well as cheap bamboo ones if I’m missing any size in Knit Pro. They are nice as soft in a grip and steel part is very smooth. I’m very happy with them, the only thing that I don’t like is I only own them in black color as I bought them 3 years ago and they didn’t seem to have a color choice back then. Here are the Amazon links if you are would like to purchase the colorful Knitpro hooks:
Of course as for any other embellishment you can use any yarn you want, this is just what I had in my yarn stash 🙂
I like to think my patterns are easy to read but if you are a beginner and still struggling with reading the patterns this book will help you:

Fasten off the yarn and hide ends of yarn with tapestry needle inside the stitches. Put the tapestry needle on green end of the yarn and start rolling the flower to the inside starting from the shortest petal’s side. Every time you roll 2-3 petals, make some overcast stitches with tapestry needle in the green area but close to the bottom of petals so the flower doesn’t unravel. Repeat the stitching until you completely rolled the flower.
