This listing is for an Irish Crochet Flower PATTERN only, not a finished flower.
You will not find a more realistic Pansy pattern anywhere. When you use natural looking colors it looks real at first glance! They make lovely appliques or attach a wire stem and make a bouquet of Spring flowers. Get started today with this instant download!
NEW! This pattern now includes a 3rd version! This new ruffled design is even better for appliques and looks more realistic than ever! If you have an older copy you are eligible to receive the updated pattern, contact me to find out how.
English language and US crochet terms only.
This comprehensive photo tutorial pattern (13 pages, 99 photos, 9.78MB) includes three versions, smooth and two ruffled. You will need a PDF reader such as Adobe Reader or PDF-XChange to view the files. There is not a text-only version of this pattern.
DMC Cebelia crochet thread or other tightly wound thread, yellow & two other colors, and appropriately sized hook.
Yellow: ~1 yard
Color A: ~2 yards
Color B: ~10 - 15 yards
Size 30 thread & 1.25mm hook
Size 20 thread & 1.5mm hook
Size 10 thread & 1.75mm hook.
Additionally, a hook one size bigger if making the ruffled pansy.
Made with size 30 thread the pansy is roughly 1.25” across (depending on tension) and only slightly bigger if made with size 20 thread. The biggest difference is the texture of the petals, not the size. Made with size 10 thread the pansy is roughly 1.5” across.
The ruffled version will be 20% - 25% bigger.
You need the following skills:
double triple crochet
back loop only
accuracy & attention to detail
patience! (ruffled version)
The smooth pansy is appropriate for an intermediate crocheter. The ruffled pansy is more awkward to make and may be more appropriate for the experienced crocheter. More important than a specific experience level is patience and the ability to follow instructions.
I usually make these pansies with three colors and add a little permanent dye to the lighter outer portion of the petals. Step-by-step instructions for dyeing are NOT included in the pattern. A resource where you can purchase supplies and get information on the process is included at the end of the pattern. Of all the realistic flowers I make, these pansies are by far the easiest to dye. It's fun and I really hope you will give it a try!
