Textured Dream Flower

Inspired by Bonita Patterns’ most patient and motivating pattern support guru, Janet Smith. Her mantra: “Check your gauge. Check your gauge. Om!”

Textured Dream Flower Crochet Pattern

Note: Readers are asking where to find the pattern for the afghan under the flowers. This is one of my premium patterns (it helps me support the costs associated with the blog). It’s  a new technique I’m developing called “Embossed Crochet”, which translate the texture and depth of Aran knitting. You can find the paid pattern here: Embossed Daisy Blanket

    1. Thank you for bringing this to commenting on this, Julie. I’ve been getting a lot of messages like yours in my inbox. I just added a note on the post. Yes! There is a pattern for the afghan. It is one of my Premium patterns (It’s paid. It helps me pay for the blog costs). This is from my newest designing technique of Embossed Crochet. If you know my work, you know how I love stitch textured, and that is why I’m obsessed with the Crocodile Stitch.

      Embossed Crochet is my newest “baby”. I just started my first patterns this Summer, so its brand new. It’s my attempt to translate the beauty of Aran knitting into crochet. I’m “bi-stitchual” (I crochet and knit), but I’m a really slow knitter. It would take me forever to knit an would never knit an afghan. Embossed Crochet was my solution to get the knitting look and save me the time. Beauty with no stress.

      This is an intermediate pattern, but a dedicated beginner can also do it. All you need to know are the basic stitches, front post and back post double crochets and work in the round. There are tons of photos, as usual. You can find the first patterns on the collection here:

  1. I love all your patterns and have purchased several. The hexagon afghan I love but still need to do. Like you I’m obsessed with the crocodile stitch have made over 10 bags I will be purchasing more in the future. Keep up the great work and lovely design stitches.

    1. Mary, awww, you are so sweet! That kind of feedback is the reason I love my work, I strive to create things that people enjoy, because isn’t the world tough enough already? I hope we can keep living up to your standard, believe me we’re going to try!

      All the best,


  2. Lianka Mahalo nui Loa (Thank you very much) for the lovely flower pattern. I can think of so many projects in which this delicate one will enhance. Melia

      1. Yes Lianka I am from Hawaii. Your flowers are so pretty and I plan to place them on hats and scarves for the fall and winter. The flowers will add spring to the sometimes dreary weather.

  3. I don’t normally take the time to comment, but this is an exceptional pattern. Thank you for sharing this lovely and unique gem.

  4. I can’t wait to make this flower pattern. Even tho you say the gauge is not critical, wondering what size your samples are. Thank you, and pls. don’t stop doing what you’re doing. You are awesome at designing.
