Written Instructions

Row 1: Ch 81. Sc in 2nd ch from hk and each rem ch. (80 sts)

Row 2: Ch 7 (counts as dc and ch-4 space). *Sk 3 sts. 1 dc in next st. Rep from * to end of row.

Row 3: Ch 1. *In next ch-4 space (sc, hdc, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, hdc, sc). Rep from * to end of row.

Fasten off leaving an 8″ tail to use in stitching the flower together.


The variation in your flower occurs in how you roll your work. If you want a smaller and taller flower, roll your flower tighter with the sc layers right on top of each other. If you need a larger, rounder flower, roll your flower more loosely with the sc layers stacked rather than right on top of each other.

With the yarn needle and tail, begin rolling the first four petals. Secure this section by stitching it two or three times using a whip stitch. Continue rolling your work, adding a few whip stitches as you go to secure it. Stitch the edge of the work with a few whip stitches and weave in the remaining tail.
