This crochet Lavender pattern was designed after our family visited a beautiful lavender field in the mountains near Mt Hood, Oregon’s tallest Cascade peak. Lavender plants in their big quantity make for a spectacular view and create an incredible smell! Seeing this amazing purple field is very impressive. You can enjoy the pictures I took at the end of this post.

Of course, after seeing those beautiful fields, I had to crochet a lavender flower. Crocheted lavender is not fragrant like the real one, but I hope you will like it anyway! If you like to crochet flowers, make sure to check out my crochet Lilac flower and crochet Dogwood flower!
You can experiment with different yarn and hooks to make your Lavender applique in different sizes. As an example, I made my applique in two sizes. For my first flower, I used crochet cotton thread size 10. Such applique is about 2-1/2” tall. It has a very delicate appearance. It will look great on handmade cards or can be used for scrapbooking. Also, you can make a pin or just sew this cute small lavender bouquet on your clothes.
For my second crochet Lavender flower, I used worsted weight #4 yarn and hook 5 mm. This flower is about 6” tall. Such applique can be used to embellish a blanket, pillow, market bag, or whatever you would like!
