Pattern Description:

This pattern was inspired by the beautiful Billie Holiday, who was so often seen with big, gorgeous gardenias in her hair. I wanted a 3-dimensional flower that captures the drama and elegance of both the blooms and the iconic crooner.

This pattern uses a number of crochet stitches with extended posts (treble crochet, double treble crochet, etc.). In the Appendix, there is a photo tutorial for these stitches. Please keep in mind that I am using American crochet terminology. You will also find a text only version of the patterns in the Appendix for your printing convenience.

This is a beautiful, 3-dimensional flower that can be attached to headbands, hats, purses, cardigans... The possibilities are endless!


  • worsted weight yarn
  • 4.00mm/size G crochet hook
  • tapestry needle
