I’m on a mission here to teach you how to read written crochet patterns! This video in my series of tutorials walks you through a mini crochet pattern for an eight-petal flower one abbreviation and parenthese at a time. This flower is the last motif in my free crochet pattern Gardens Galore Garland. I’ve already made videos in this series for all the other small motifs in this pattern.

If you’ve learned to crochet by watching a friend, family member, or YouTube video, but you don’t know how to read a written pattern, this post is for you!
