Narcissus crochet pattern | Free pattern

I love flowers and so I’m excited to share this free Narcissus crochet pattern with you! Here’s the back story behind this pattern. I was given some Narcissus bulbs for my birthday a number of years ago. They flowered for a few years and then just stopped. I thought the bulbs had died or got munched by something, and so left them in their pots and promptly forgot about them. When we moved house, we lugged along all the pots that we had at our old house and placed them in various spots in the garden of our new house.

Now, because of the drought as well as the arrival of the littlest member of our family, the garden in our new house has been somewhat neglected. We’ve been here in our new house a few years and my bulbs have never sprouted, so I was just gobsmacked when my husband walked in with the most beautiful bunch of narcissus harvested from the garden! These bulbs which hadn’t seen the sun for several years decided that now was the time to burst forth into bloom. What a treat!


I used Vinni’s cotton yarn for these flowers. It has a beautiful matte texture and the colors are very natural. In the images below, I used the following colors (Natural or White for the main petals, Sunshine or Baby Yellow for the ruffles, and Avocado or Burnt Orange for the centres). Let’s get on with the pattern shall we!

Notes: 
This pattern is written using US crochet terms. If you are unfamiliar with any of the abbreviations, please visit the crochet terms page.

It’s also worth looking at my tutorial for the magic ring if you are unfamiliar with how to make one.

Some parts of this pattern are worked in continuous rounds. Don’t slip stitch to close the ring unless instructed to do so!
