Small Loopy Flowers Appliques {Free Crochet Pattern}

Today, I am sharing my patterns for the small loopy flower appliques that I made to go on the little preemie headbands that I made to donate to Valley Children's NICU.

I made a simple flower and a deluxe flower to go on the headbands. The simple flower looks pretty by itself or paired with one or two more on a headband, in the same or coordinating colors. The deluxe flower is nice to use just by itself, as it is a bit larger.

One of the things I love about these flowers, besides how easy they are to make, is that they allow you to get creative with colors. They use very little yarn, so the small loopy flowers make a great stash-buster for your small bits of cotton yarn.

Go ahead and get started making them, now. You will want a collection ready to go when I start sharing my preemie headband patterns!
