Here's another crochet flower pattern. This one is a little bit more involved and turns out much bigger (2.5 to 3 inches in diameter) than my tiny little flower. It's cute to attach on a hat or glue to an alligator clip to be worn in the hair or on a headband. It also makes a great embellishment for totes, purses, and blankets.
So here it is. I suggest watching this about back post crochet stitches prior to starting if you've never done a back post single crochet.
Here's what you'll need.
Small amounts of worsted weight yarn
H crochet hook
Yarn needle for finishing off
Something to embellish
BPSC- Back Post Single Crochet
You'll be crocheting in rounds. Don't turn work. Work through both loops for this pattern.
Let me just make a suggestion! Before you get scared reading the directions, get out a hook and some yarn and just give it a try. It really is easier than it reads.
Here it goes:
Round 1: Work 10 SC into the first chain. SlSt in the top of the first SC. (Change color after this round if you'd like a different color center). Gently pull tail to tighten.
Round 2: *ch 2, skip 1 SC, SC in next stitch* Complete four times. ch 2, skip 1 SC, SlSt in the first chain 2 space to join. (total of 5 chain 2 spaces)
Round 3: Ch 2, 4 DC, SlSt in the same ch 2 space. *SlSt, ch2, 4 DC, ch1, SlSt* in each remaining chain 2 space. You will have 5 petals when you finish this round.
Round 4: Ch 1, *BPSC around the post of the SC on round 2. CH 3.* Complete 5 times. Sl stitch in the first BPSC to make the last ch 3 space.
Round 5: *SlSt, Ch 2, 5 DC, ch 1, SlSt* in each ch 3 space. You should now have a second row of petals behind the first.
Feel free to use this pattern on items you're planning to sell. If you do, I just ask that you include a link back to this post in case others would like to try! :)
Also, leave a link so I can see a picture! I'd love to see how you use this cute flower!
