Simple circle brooch pattern

This is a very simple pattern to make a stylised flower brooch, using two circular pieces of crochet held together with a button.  It’s a great pattern to practice crocheting in the round and increasing.

The brooch can be made with any weight of yarn and size of button.  It’s a great way to use up small bits of yarn in your stash!

You will need:

  • small amount of yarn in your chosen weight and colour(s)
  • corresponding hook size for your yarn
  • button
  • brooch bar fastening
  • yarn needle
  • stitch marker
  • scissorsimage

 

Pattern:

Large circle:

Make a magic circle (MC) (Bella Coco – Magic Circle video tutorial)
Round 1: 8dc into loop, pull MC closed (8sts)
Round 2: 3dc into each st (24 sts)
Round 3: 2dc into each st (48 sts)
Rounds 4-12: 1dc into each st (48 sts)
Fasten off.

Small circle:

Make a magic circle (MC)
Round 1: 8dc into loop, pull MC closed (8sts)
Round 2: 2dc into each st (16 sts)
Round 3: 2dc into each st (32 sts)
Rounds 4-8: 1dc into each st (32 sts)

Weave in your ends.  Place the small circle on top of the large circle and sew your button to the centre, pulling your yarn through both circles to secure.  Attach a brooch bar fastening to the back of your large circle.image

Ta dah!  A gorgeous circle brooch to decorate your coat, hat, bag or scarf.image
