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! The trick to reading written patterns starts with understanding the abbreviations used in written crochet patterns. I have a free list of abbreviations and their meanings!
The next part of understanding written crochet patterns is getting the formatting. That’s where my video series comes in! I have a total of five videos in this series so far, but there will be more! You can find links for the others currently available right here.
And so that you can follow along with the videos with your own written crochet pattern, you can find the free Gardens Galore Garland crochet pattern here!
The video below is for the Eight-petal flower that is the last in the Gardens Galore Garland crochet pattern. Enjoy!
