This flower has oh~so~many uses. I’m sure you will see it used in many upcoming patterns of mine!
Use just about any yarn, and the hook to match. Sample was made with Lily Sugar ‘n Cream and a 4.5mm hook.
Yarn needle for weaving in ends
Stitches and Abbreviations used:
sl st ~ slip stitch
ch ~ chain
dc ~ double crochet
dc2tog ~ double crochet 2 together
beg ~ beginning
sp ~ space
st(s) ~ stitch(es)
dccl ~ Double Crochet Cluster – yo, insert hook into next st, yo and pull through (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yo, insert hook into SAME st, yo and pull through (4 loops on hook), yo, pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through all 3 loops
Rnd 1: Make a magic circle (or ch3 and join into a circle with a sl st,) work into that: ch2, dc, ch, (dccl, ch) 7 times, pull circle closed, change color and sl st to top of first dc.
Rnd 2: sl st into ch sp, (ch2, dc, ch,dccl) all in same sp * (dccl, ch, dc 2tog) in next ch sp, rep from *6 more times, sl st to top of first dc.
Rnd 3: sl st into ch sp, sl st in between next 2 dccl (see picture), (6dc in next ch sp, sl st in between next 2 dccl) 8 times. Clip yarn and end off.
Rnd 4: change color, sl st in between 3rd and 4th dc of any petal, * ch3, sc over next sl st, ch3, sl st in between 3rd and 4th dc of next petal, rep from * 7 more times. This is a good place to stop for a smaller flower.
