Spring Crochet Flower Pattern

dsc03804

 

Suddenly I’m here for patterns.  This is one I promised, a crochet spring flower.  I made it from Knit Picks Crayon, which is a cotton boucle, very soft, in two contrasting colours, using a size G hook.  It makes a very fluffy flower with petals that overlap and curl like a real flower.  I put instructions to decrease number of petals if you would like just enough to fill the circle and lie flat. 

round 1:  Using center colour (CC), chain 3 and join.

round 2:  Chain 1 then work 8 single crochet (sc) in the center ring.  Join.

round 3:  Change to petal colour (PC), chain 4 and work 3 triple crochet in the first single crochet of the previous row.  Turn and slip stitch down the side of the last treble, using 3 stitches to reach the base.  Then slip stitch in the next single crochet of the previous row.  Chain 4 and work 3 triple crochet in the same single crochet.  [If you wish to spread out the petals and have no overlap, slip stitch in the next TWO single crochet of the previous row, then start with chain 4, etc.] Repeat to end of round=9 petals (or 5 petals using alternate).

round 4:  Change to CC and slip stitch around outside of each petal to make contrasting edge. 

Weave ends and enjoy.
