Easy Crochet Flower Magnets

Spring is my favorite time of the year, and, here in Florida, spring pretty much starts in February. So to celebrate the Florida beginning of this great season, I thought I'd make some pretty (and easy) flower magnets!


Yarn in Your Favorite Colors (I used a DK weight acrylic yarn)
4.25mm Crochet Hook
Magnets (I bought this roll at Hobby Lobby for $2.99)
Hot Glue Gun

CH: Chain
SL ST: Slip Stitch
DC: Double Crochet
DC2TOG: Double Crochet 2 Together
DC3TOG: Double Crochet 3 Together

CH 5, join to 5th chain from hook with a SL ST.

Round 1:
CH 2, DC2TOG (counts as 1st DC3TOG) into center, 5 DC3TOG (all into center), SL ST to top of 1st 
DC3TOG to join.

Round 2: 
(CH 1, 3 DC, CH1, SL ST all into same space as join, SL ST into to top of next DC3TOG), repeat around 6 times. 

Fasten off and weave in ends. 

Finish by cutting a 1 inch by 1 inch square magnet from the roll. Use the hot glue to attach this to the back of your flower. Repeat as many times as you'd like for the perfectly spring decorated refrigerator.
