This six petal flower can be it’s own finished item, such as a coaster, an applique, a pin, a hair clip, bunting, or so many other items. In addition it can be used within other patterns. This flower can be made with or without a second layer flower worked out of the top of the first round. There is a video to show the main flower, a second video to show the layered flower, a written pattern, and a chart for the main flower. Plus photos to help along the way. 🙂
The samples seen in this post were all made with Lion Brand Heartland yarn (which is made in the USA), and a 6.o0 mm/US J crochet hook.
This video will show you the main flower, and includes some designer tips not in the written pattern:
Note: this is the same pattern as the center of the flower to hexagon granny square originally published by me here. You will find a lot of step by step photos there, as well as instructions written in a way that is a little easier for beginners (less technical).
ch ~ chain
hdc ~ half double crochet
dc ~ double crochet
dc cl ~ double crochet cluster *instructions below
st(s) ~ stitch(es)
dc cl worked as follows: Yo, insert hook into st, yo, pull through st, (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yo, insert hook into same st, yo, pull through st, (4 loops on hook), yo, pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through all remaining loops
Round 1: Ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring, ch 2 (counts as first hdc), hdc 11 times into ring, join with a sl st to top ch (12 sts).
Round 2: (change color) Ch 2, dc in same stitch (counts as your first dc cl), ch 1, [dc cl in next st, ch 1] 11 times., join with a slst to top chain of initial ch 2. (12 sets of dc cl, ch 1)
Round 3: (change color) Sl st into first ch-1 sp from round 2, 6 dc in next ch-1 sp, [sl st in next ch-1 sp, 6 dc in next ch-1 sp] 5 times, join with a sl st to first sl st of the round. (6 petals)
Fasten off and weave in ends.
And here is a chart showing that:
If you would like to add the second flower in the center of this one, here is a video:
Here are written instructions, though finding the first st to work into is much more easily explained visually, so I recommend watching the video.
Round 1: Look at the clusters in round 2, they have been pulled together in sets of 2. Sl st into the top of a post in the first round that is centered under one of the sets of clusters, ch 2, skip a post, [sl st into next post (centered under the next set of clusters)] 5 times, sl st into the first ch-2 sp made in the round. (6 ch-2 spaces) Do not fasten off or clip yarn. **This was the very first pattern I wrote, and I made the video years later. When I wrote the pattern, I did not know the proper name for “sl st into the top of a post.” What I was trying to describe is a front post sl st. Sorry for any confusion. You can always watch the video if you are confused.
Round 2: (hdc, 2 dc, hdc, sl st) in the same ch-2 space as the last sl st of round 1 is in, [(sl st, hdc, 2 dc, hdc, sl st) in the next ch-2 space] 5 times. (6 petals made) Fasten off and weave in ends.
