Pansies crochet pattern

Note: Don’t miss the launch discount at the end of this post!

I really hope you’ll enjoy my latest crochet design – it makes me smile to see these cheery colourful pansy faces, and I hope they’ll give you a happy boost too! Depending on your climate, pansies can be among the earliest flowering plants in spring, but you don’t even need to wait that long to add colour to your day…

Pansies crochet pattern by PlanetJune

My Pansies pattern includes large and small baskets of realistic pansy plants, together with 4 different styles of pansy flowers, each available to crochet in all the pansy colours, giving you dozens of options!

You can customize the basket contents to mix and match the pansy flowers however you wish. The small basket includes 2 pansy plants, and the large basket has 8, for a riot of glorious colour.

This pattern also includes bonus instructions for making any of the pansy styles into an individual leaf-backed pansy flower (as shown at the start of this post) – perfect as a decorative pin, appliqué, gift topper or ornament.

The word pansy is derived from the French pensée (‘thought’) and there’s no better way to show someone you’re thinking of them than with a cheerful crocheted pansy.

Pattern Details

Don’t be phased by the apparent complexity of this pattern – I’ve put a lot of thought into making it easy and enjoyable for you to make:

  • Although the pansy flower is a little more complex than my other flowers, it’s explained with written instructions, stage-by-stage photos, and right- and left-handed stitch diagrams. And once you’ve made a couple, they work up pretty quickly.
  • Yes, the baskets have quite a lot of leaves, but I’ve come up with a clever construction method for them so you won’t be crocheting each leaf individually. It’s a lot faster than you’d think from looking at the finished result (shh, don’t tell!)
  • The complete pattern includes 16 pages and dozens of photos for constructing the flowers and assembling the pansies in both sizes of basket, so I’ll walk you step-by-step through the whole process – no need to be intimidated. 🙂
  • The pages with the crochet instructions for each of the three options (large pansy basket, small pansy basket, pansy pin/appliqué) are listed within the pattern, so, if desired, you can save paper and ink by printing only the pages required for your option, and read the assembly instructions on-screen only.

    Hello, I love pansies! May I know what brand of yarns you are using to obtain such colours?

    • June said

      I mixed and matched various shades of Bernat Satin, Red Heart Soft, Red Heart Soft Baby Steps, and Caron Simply Soft yarns,
      as these yarns are all similar in look and weight.

    Very nice! But what’s been with the increased prices lately?

    • June said

      I raised my prices slightly last year, for the first time in almost 6 years, to combat inflation. But, at the same time, I introduced loyalty discounts for shopping directly from PlanetJune, so the price you pay is actually unchanged from my 2010 prices if you buy directly from my shop.

      Aside from that, my pricing structure hasn’t changed at all – I always charge slightly more for patterns with multiple options included in the same pattern, and it just so happens that most of my recent patterns have included several options..!

      If you buy any of my patterns, you’ll discover that you always get far more in value than the price you pay. 🙂

    I think your pansies are absolutely beautiful, they look so real, and I also love the baskets and the texture.
    Love,

    Oh, they are wonderful! 🙂 They make me happy just by looking at them 🙂 I also love the new pot design, great addition – now you can mix & match different plants and flowers and pots.

      Thank you! I try to do something different with the pots (or baskets in this case) each time – I’d feel guilty about re-selling the same pot pattern over and over again 😉
