Have you been checking in looking for those free patterns I promised a few nights ago? Well I finally had time to take a few pictures and write down how those sweet little flowers are made!
They really are simple and very quick to whip up as embellishments for a little headband or shirt or skirt or card or whatever you think needs a little flower :)
I used my latest favorite, Bernat Handicrafter Cotton yarn and a 4.00mm hook to make a flower just bigger than an inch, but you can really use any yarn and hook you'd like.
Begin with a magic ring, 5 sc in ring
Join with a slst and pull to close ring
working in next st, 1hdc, 1 dc, 1hdc (first petal made)
slst into next st and repeat (1hdc, 1dc, 1hdc) 4 times to make 5 petals
fasten off and weave in ends.
There you have it! A completed flower in just a few minutes! Wasn't that easy? Now go make a whole bunch and brighten up your springtime projects like I did with the headband little Missy wore!
Did you try my pattern? Let me know what you embellished with a comment!
Thanks for stopping by!
