Make it! A bunch of flowers !!!

In my last post you can look at some flowers I've been using to decorate the tops (they are glued on them) of some bottles' lids and today I'm going to share the patterns (sorry, no photo tutorial!) with you …






You need :

  • one hook (4mm in my case)
  • some colourful yarns ( from my stash : MODA VERA MARVEL 8ply, 100% acrylic)
  • a pair of scissors
  • a yarn needle
  • please, remember I follow the US crochet terminology! ;oD


The REBEL FLOWER




Choose a colour for the centre of your flower, make a slip knot on the hook, chain 4 and insert the tip of the hook in the first chain made, to form a ring.
First round : chain 2 and crochet 12 DC (= double crochets) into the ring and slip stitch in the top of the first DC. Cut yarn and fasten off. Trim in the ends.
Second round : choose a new colour and make a slip knot on the hook. Push the hook in any DC top and make 1 SC (= single crochet), chain 9, make 1 SC in the 3rd chain from the hook and make other 6 SC in the next chains left . You will have your first petal made of 7 SC. Attach the petal in the same starting DC with a SC. In the following DC you will crochet the second (shorter) petal : 1 SC, chain 6, 1 SC in the 3rd chain from the hook and 3 more SC in the following chains left. Your mini petal is formed by 4 SC.
You need to crochet 10 more petals (5 big+5 small), just repeating the above directions given for the first 2 petals.
When the last small petal is done, make a slip stitch in the first SC of the first big petal made.
Cut the yarn and fasten off. Trim in the ends.



The CURLY FLOWER




As for the previous flower, choose a colour for the centre.
Follow the initial directions and the first round written for the REBEL FLOWER.
Second round : pick a new colour and make a slip knot on the hook. Push the hook in any DC top and make 1 SC, chain 12 and, in the same DC, make another SC to complete the petal (this is the big one). In the next DC, make 1 SC, chain 8 and define the petal with 1 SC in the same DC. You have just crocheted the small petal.
Even for this flower, you have to crochet 10 more petals (5 big + 5 small), just following the directions given above.
When the last small petal is completed, make a slip stitch in the first SC of the first petal.
Cut the yarn and fasten off. Trim in the ends.



The SUNNY FLOWER




Even for this flower, follow the same directions given for the beginning and the first round of the REBEL FLOWER!
Second round : choose a new colour and make a slip knot on the hook. Insert the hook in any DC top, chain 2 and make 2 DC. In each following DC top, just do the same : crochet 2 DC. At the end, you will have 24 DC. Cut the yarn and fasten off. Trim in the ends.
Third round : you can decide between two options ! "A" option (on the left, in the above picture) : choose a new colour and make a slip knot on the hook. Push the hook in any DC top and make 1 SC and start the point : chain 5, slip stitch in the 2nd chain from the hook, 1 SC in 3rd, 1 half DC in 4th and 1 DC in fifth, the point is done. Attach it in 2nd DC you meet, while skipping the first DC close to the beginning DC, just with 1 SC. You need to crochet other 11 points. When the last one is done, make a slip stitch in the first SC, cut the yarn and fasten off. Trim in the ends. "B" option (on the right, in the above picture) : the SC to attach the points are made in the spaces between two groups of DC!! Easy peasy! Even here, when completed the last point, make a slip knot into the first SC, cut the yarn and fasten off. Trim in the ends.


If interested, you can crochet even a SUN MOTIF !!! Have fun !!!! ;oD
