Please note... I didn't say "How To" in the title. That's because there is no way I'm going to tell you how to make a crochet flower! BUT, I did learn how to yesterday... amazing, since just two blogs ago I said I had no interest in learning! What can I say?... I just never know where I'll end up! Since I have made two videos making different kinds of flowers I decided I wanted to make yet another different one.
I found a version of it from the web (http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/flowers.php) but I modified that to fit my needs. I took the pattern to a friend and she took about 10 minutes to show me how to make one. She said she would make a video for me, but she had to go out of town today so that may, or may not, (???) happen later.
I can't believe it, I have actually made 28 so far. I have no clue exactly what I'll do with all of them but I got on a roll and did them while watching TV....love it when I have busy hands....don't like to just sit and watch.
Here is something I made with one last night:
If you notice, I used a yo-yo for one of the videos. The center of the flower is just a brad. I will do another video on making the "hat pin" soon. But today I wanted to share the pattern for the flower. I hope you can read it! If not, I bet you know someone who can... or go to YouTube and search, there are TONS of crochet videos out there!
Rnd 1: ch 2, 5 sc in first chain you made. Join with sl st to first sc.
Rnd 2: [ (ch 2, 3dc, ch 2, sl st) in the same sc, sl st to the next sc], 5 times, making 5 petals. Cut off.
Just FYI.... I bought variegated yarn so I can have lots of colors of flowers...all that look good with each other because they came from the same skein
