Crocheted Flowers Pattern
Sorry Angie. I had planned to take some pics to go with this before posting. But it would be ages before that happens, being the protracted procrastinator that I am. So here goes. Easy Peasy!
Chain (17,35,53) (S,M,L)
I chained 53 for all flowers and used an acrylic worsted weight yarn. I tried it with a thinner yarn but it didn’t hold the shape very well.
Dc in 5th chain from hook, *ch 1, skip 1, (dc-ch-dc) in next ch (V stitch made)
Repeat from * across to end. Turn.
Ch 3 (counts as dc) 5 dc in ch space, * sc in next ch-1 space, 6 dc in next ch-1 space (shell stitch made)
Repeat from *, ending in 6 dc in last ch-1 space. Fasten off but leave a good long tail for anchoring the flower. I left a good 10 inches for large flowers.
Thread needle with tail and weave to base of last stitch. Starting at that end, roll the first shell tightly to form the center bud. Stitch this one tightly as it tends to want to open up otherwise. Then it looks pretty silly. Keep rolling and stitching as you see fit. I like the way the blue flower looks. It’s huge! It measures approximately 4 inches in diameter. I rolled it quite loosely after the center bud so it lays pretty flat. The others are, shall we say, a bit chunkier!
I found this pattern here. Thanks, Angie for pointing it out! Sorry I can’t be more specific, but I can’t see the original pattern.
