Petite Floral Dreamcatcher (Free Crochet Pattern + Video Tutorial)

by - March 30, 2020


Dear fellow crocheters,

How about a happy and fun pattern to fight against these stay-at-home blues?  I'm excited to present to you my newest free pattern, the Petite Floral Dreamcatcher!

Petite Floral Dreamcatcher, pictured with the Bunny Rabbit Cupcake (free pattern)!

This beginner-friendly project is quick, easy, and can be crocheted in just 30 minutes (or less).

It's a very versatile pattern that features a puff stitch flower in the center and allows you to play with different yarn color combinations and bead combinations.  It’s such a trendy and fun project that you can use as a stash buster as well, since it uses up very little yarn to make.  I loved crocheting it with different colors and fibers!


Fast and addictive to make, you’ll love the finished product equally as this mini décor is oh-so-cute!

Chic accessories and items like these sell well at craft fairs and make excellent gifts, or as a treat for yourself.  It’s a must-have Spring and Summer accessory to add a fashionable bohemian (boho), gypsy, hippie, free spirit, vintage, or festival touch.

This mandala style dream catcher serves as a beautiful home décor wall hanging for any room and living space, such as the bedroom, baby’s nursery, office, kitchen, and even bathroom!  It can also be easily transformed into a keychain for purses, pendant, necklace, or other jewelry.  Crochet one (or a dozen) today!
