When looking for a great flower for the Mother and Daughter hats I made a few weeks ago, I really couldn’t find one I wanted. I ran across this one by Lucy over at Attic 24 and it was kinda~sorta what I was looking for, but not quite. So I altered it a bit. Then when I made some ear warmers last week (pattern to come) I changed it up again and finally ended up with the look I wanted. So here it is!
Just about any works! Just use the hook to match. This sample was made with Vanna’s Choice.
Sample was made with 4.5mm (US7) hook, but use the size hook that works with the yarn you choose.
Yarn needle for weaving in ends
Start with a magic circle, or ch3 and sl st to join together into a ring
Rnd 1: ch3 (counts as first dc) 13dc into ring, sl st to top of beg ch3, pull tight
Rnd 2: * work entire rnd in front loop only of top of rnd 1* sl st into next st with second color,** (hdc, 2dc, hdcc) in next st, sl st in ext st, rep from ** 6 more times (7 petals made), sl st into same st as first sl st
Rnd 3: *work entire rnd in back loop only of top of rnd 1 * sl st into back loop of same st (the one that rnd 2 ended in) with first color ch 1, (2sc in next st, sc in nest st) 7 times (21 sc), sl st to top of first sc
Rnd 4: * (hdc, dc, tc) in next st, (dc, tc) in next st, sl st in next st rep from * 6 more times, omitting last sl st
Rnd 5: with second color * sc over sl st, sc in back loop only of next 5 sts, rep from * 6 more times, sl st to first sc
Clip yarns, end off, weave in ends or leave them free to tie flower onto a hat, ear warmers, or whatever else makes you smile.
