Crochet Flower Jacket For Spring Evenings


Imagine wrapping yourself in a garden of soft flowers, each petal perfectly crocheted by your hands. This is the magic of creating a Crochet Flower Jacket. It’s like wearing a bouquet of your favorite blooms, each stitched with love and care. The crocheted jacket is made by crocheting many individual flower motifs and then joining them to form a beautiful, wearable piece of art.

Whether it’s a chilly morning or a cool evening, slipping into this jacket adds a touch of warmth and a lot of style. It’s a fun project where you can play with colors and make a truly unique piece. With every flower you crochet, you’re one step closer to bringing this charming garden to life.

Pattern Summary

The top comprises four rectangular panels (two for the body and two for the sleeves), each made by crocheting flower patterns. Each flower pattern requires working in multiples of 25 stitches. The sleeves are one flower shorter than the body panels.

Making the Panels:

Starting Chain: Begin with a foundation chain of multiples of 25 for the desired width of your panel. For a sleeve, 75 chains are recommended (for three flowers).
First Row (Set Up for Flowers): Start by chaining 2 (counts as a dc), then dc 6 more in the next stitches. Chain 2, skip 2, and dc in the next stitch; repeat to create the flower base pattern. You will end up with spaces that will serve as the foundation for the flowers (the first row essentially creates the framework for the following detailed flower pattern).

Flower Pattern Detail:

Second Row: Chain 2 and turn your work, double crochet up to before the first gap, chain 2, and dc into the stitch before the gap, 2 dc into the gap, and one dc into the stitch after the gap. This creates the first “hole” for the flower.

Creating the Petals:

Large Petals (third row): Start with chaining 2 (counts as dc), chain another 2 (for a total of 4), then use treble crochets and extra chains to create large petals following the base pattern established in the previous rows.
Small Petals: After the large petals, chain 2 and turn, begin forming smaller petals by adjusting the number of chains and double crochets within each petal.
Completion of One Flower: Continue the petal pattern, ensuring to create a base of gaps for the next row of petals. Follow the sequence from creating the two gaps, three holes, larger petals, and then decreasing for smaller petals again.

Finishing the Panel:

After the flower sequences, ensure the final row is a row of double crochets to provide a neat edge.

Constructing the Top:

Body Panels: Create an identical panel for the back of the top using the same pattern as the front.
Sleeves: Repeat the pattern for the sleeves but make it one flower short. Finish both sleeves following the same pattern.
Assembly: Stitch the fronts and backs together at the shoulders first. Then, attach the sleeves by aligning the center of the sleeve with the shoulder seam and sewing down from there.
Side Seams: Fold the piece with right sides together, ensuring the sleeve and side edges align. Sew from the sleeve edge down to the bottom of the body, creating the sides of the top.

Additional Notes:

Always check gauge and fit, especially around the shoulders and neckline, to ensure a comfortable fit.
Weave in all ends for a clean finish.
You can customize the length of the sleeves and body by adding or subtracting flowers.

Final Thoughts:

This detailed top requires patience and attention to detail, especially when constructing the flower motifs. Inspired by Rose’s Bane on Instagram and a pattern from Belina Bellwood on YouTube, the original video provides a visual aid for tricky parts. Good luck with your crochet flower top!
