There are gazillions of flower patterns on the internet, but I made this one up myself. However, there are only so many ways you can make a simple five-petal flower like this, so if it’s similar to anyone else’s – then, so be it!
If you make one, will you let me know if my instructions were spot-on or not? **The stitches are in British terminology.
I used DK cotton and a 4mm hook.
Ch 3, dc 10 into the first ch, sl st into beg ch3.
Round 2: Ch1, 3tr into next st, ch1. st into next st. Repeat 4 times. You should now have five petals.
Round 3: Ch1, 1dc into next st, 3htr into next st, 1dc into next st, ch1, sl st into sp between petals. Repeat this 4 times. End off and pull tight, and weave in the ends at the back.
Quickly quickly go pick up your hook and a scrap of yarn…..!!!!!!!
I can’t remember where I put my hook…
Jane, you need a KIT, my friend !!!!!!!
Thank you so much for sharing your flower pattern with us. As soon as I can I will have to try it out. :)
Love and Hugs, Tamara
Can you believe it, I googled “simple crochet flower tutorial” just last night and I still battled to follow the steps. This is the BEST flower pattern I’ve seen, without all usual “pattern-speak” Thanks hun xxx
So pretty. Love the colours. My favourites.
I really liked the flower pattern in my kit. It looks similar. I gave 2 of my kit bands to 2 sisters 11 and 16 who loved them.
Let me know when the kits are ready “for real” because I have a gaggle of girls who are keen but novice crocheters and I want to but Xmas gifts for them.
cute tute :)
Have made a few of these in my time! x
Really, we never see any of your crochet, ALison !!! :-)
Never enough flowers!
I made one of these. Very cute! I assumed in round 2 it meant “sl st into next stitch”. I used an “H” hook and worsted weight as I am wont to do, and got a flower that is 2.5 inches at the widest point.
so quite a chubby flower then? Yes, sl st into next stitch! Glad you tried it. I’ve been trying another one, but can’t get it right…..
Yes, a chubby little flower. But still a nice size. I don’t do well with small hook sizes and/or yarn… I accidentally omitted one of the CH1s in round 3 so one of my petals leans a little but I like it!
One of the best things someone ever told me was an islamic proverb which says “only allah achieves perfection”. I have carried it with me my entire life..!!!
Very true. I also call things like that “design interpretations” or “creative thinking”. :D
love it Jill!! is that bamboo yarn?
it’s Vinni’s Nikkim (cotton), not the bamboo. But I LOVE the bamboo, too – it’s a bit more expensive, though.
I need to try it, it is beautiful ..
I love this little flower! thanks! I just wanted to stop by and share with you that I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award here: http://craftmanicmommy.wordpress.com/2013/09/12/awards-what-no-way/
