Darling Crochet Flower Pattern

The rain is not stopping for a minute today and I have been busy designing a motorcycle web site. Yup! Quite a contrast to my daily pretty blog world indulgence... I am a bit busy with other things than blogging for the moment... However, to brighten up this dull and grey day lets have some fun with my Darling Crochet Flower pattern. It is just as fun as the Maybelle Crochet Flower but smaller and quicker. Lets get started, shall we?

Darling Crochet Flower Pattern

What do you need for this project:

- Sport weight yarn (I am using my delightful Tilda yarn which is heaven for this project)
- Crochet hook
- Tapestry needle to weave in ends
- A pair of scissors

Difficulty level

EASY


Crochet terms:
This pattern in written in UK terms. For US terms see table below.
Stitch UK         UK        US

Chain                 ch          ch
Slip stitch          sl st        sl st
Double              dc           sc
Half treble         htr          hdc
Treble                tr            dc
Double treble    dtr          tr
3 chain treble    3ch tr     3ch dc

Ch 6, sl st in 1st ch to make a ring and ch 3 (counts as your 1st tr, I call this 3 ch tr).

Work 13 tr into the ring - you should have 14 tr including your 1st 3 ch tr. Join this row with a sl st in the 3rd ch of the first 3 ch tr. Ch 4.

Skip 1 ch, make a dc in next ch, *ch3, skip 1 ch, dc in next ch*, repeat * to * 4 more times. Sl st in 1st ch in 1st loop (see the arrow...) . You should have 7 loops in total.

Make the petals; *1 dc, 1 htr, 1 tr, 1 dtr, 1 tr, 1 htr, 1 dc*, repeat * to * 6 more times in each loop. Sl st in a stitch in between last and first petal made (see the arrow).
Cut your yarn and use your tapestry needle to fasten off. Turn your flower and stick through from back to front, tug a little bit for a neat finish. Now you do it one more time from the front to the back. Finally you weave in the end by sewing it in back and forth at least 2 times. Cut off yarn.

Finished. You have made your first Darling Crochet Flower. And if you are like me this is only the first of many. Enjoy!

  13. I was hoping someone would ask how to now make the little flower into a square Thanks to your pattern, I know how to turn 8 petals in square but not 7.
