Best yarn to crochet a flower

Cotton yarn is recommended for crochet flowers because of the amazing stitch definition, making the finished flower pop. I often reach for brands like Lily Sugar’n Cream or Patons Grace for their durable and vibrant options.

However, I went for a metallic blend yarn for this project for the finished flower’s beautiful shine.

In this post, I’ll walk you through each step to craft a simple crochet flower, unwrapping the layers of this delightful art at an easy and engaging pace for all skill levels.
