The lilac is such a beautiful flower and I love it especially for its amazing fragrance. Lilacs bloom only for a couple of weeks during spring at the same time as we celebrate Mother’s Day.
The lilac also is my mom’s favorite, so I designed these small crochet lilac flowers to embellish a Mother’s Day card.
A card with lilac flowers is perfect not only for Mother’s Day but also for birthdays. If you know somebody who celebrates their birthdays during a lilac blooming season or somebody who just loves lilacs – make for them this beautiful card with crochet lilac flowers!

Lilac flower is about 1” in diameter.
Make a magic ring,
Rnd 1. (Ch 3, DC in ring, Ch 3, Sl St in ring) – 4 times. Close the ring, but do not tighten it up. You will need to be able to insert the hook into the ring when working on next Rnd.
Rnd 2. (Ch 3, SC in top of DC of previous Rnd, Ch 2, SC into same top of DC, Ch 3, Sl St in the ring) – 4 times. Close the magic ring tightly. Fasten off.
Center: using yellow color thread about 6” long, make a knot in the middle, bring the thread ends to the back side through the center of the flower leaving the knot on the front. Fasten off.
Your crochet lilac flowers are complete, now you can embellish with them your Mother’s Day card!
In addition to crochet lilac flowers, you also can embellish your card with beads, buttons or whatever you would like. I used for my card tiny heart shaped buttons.
I hope you enjoyed this pattern for the crochet lilac flowers and Mother’s Day card!
