Crocheted Flower Pattern

I tried taking some pictures for this tutorial, but they didn't look very helpful to me. So, for now, here is the pattern minus photos.

Using a size H hook, chain 4. Join the end to the first chain with a slip stitch to form a ring.

Round 1: (single crochet in the ring, chain 3) 6 times. Again, join the last stitch to the first single crochet with a slip stitch.

Round 2: (single crochet, chain 1, 3 double crochets, chain 1, single crochet) in each space created by the chain 3.

Round 3: Now you begin working in the back of the flower you have started creating. (single crochet around the first spoke, then chain 4) 6 times. Join last stitch to first stitch with a slip stitch.

Round 4: (single crochet, chain 1, 5 double crochets, chain 1, single crochet) in each space created by the chain 4.

Round 5: Repeat round 3, but chain 5 instead of 4. Join last stitch to first with a slip stitch and weave in ends.

If you want to add another layer of petals, repeat Round 3, increasing the number of stitches in the chain by one, and Round 4, increasing the double crochets by two.

Why can't all patterns be explained this clearly?

Do you know of anywhere which explains how to read normal patterns?

Hi Melissa! This flower is so pretty, and I feel silly, but I'm stuck on Round 3...where exactly am I making the single crochets? Spoke?

Yes Kim, you should be doing the single crochets around the first spoke.

I love this pattern. Are you using crochet yarn or some other yarn? And what size hook are you using?

Linda D.,

I almost always use worsted weight yarn for these flowers and a size G or H crochet hook.

Can you make this flower using size 10 crochet thread and if so what size hook?

5:23 PM

Blogger Melissa said...

I would use a smaller size crochet hook as the thread is a fine gauge.

I have to say thank you as well! These flowers are the best I've found yet! Would you mind if I attach them to the baby hats I sell to people? Giving you the credit for the pattern of course ;)
