My husband and I have been Amazon Prime members for years. We order all of our household supplies, gifts, crochet supplies and even some food items from Amazon. We wouldn’t be able to save money if we had to pay for shipping. Amazon Prime members get free two day shipping on eligible Prime items plus a ton of other perks such as free movie and TV show streaming and free music streaming.

Gauge and Sizing

Your finished flower will measure approximately 3″ x 3″.

Abbreviations

  • Ch – Chain
  • Dc – Double Crochet
  • Hdc – Half Double Crochet
  • Sc – Single Crochet
  • slst  – Slip Stitch

Pattern Notes

This is a very versatile pattern. You can play with the hook and yarn size to change the size of your flower. The finished product using the supplies above measures approximately 3 inches by 3 inches. I have suggested Redheart Unforgettable because I like how the variegation gives it a natural looking gradient. If you choose to use a different yarn, select a hook that coordinates with your yarn choice.

Written Instructions

Ch. 4.
Join with a slst to the first chain to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch. 1. Sc 10 times into the center of the ring. Join with a slst to the first sc. Slst into the back loop of the same stitch you just joined to. Do not turn your work.

Round 2 (Work in the back loops only for this round): Ch. 3 (counts as a dc). Dc 4 more times into the same back loop as your chain 3. Sc into the back loop of the next stitch. *Dc 5 times into the back loop of the next stitch. Sc into the back loop of the next stitch. Repeat from * all the way around. You should end on a sc.  (Five petals)

Turn your work.

You should see a ring of loops around your flower. These loops are the remaining loops of the stitches from where you worked in the back loop only in round 2. These are the loops you will be using for round 3.

Round 3 (Work in the remainder loop from round 2): Find the  remaining back loop of the sc you worked in last. Slst into that loop. *Ch. 3. Skip a stitch and slst into the remaining loop of the next stitch. Repeat from * all the way around.

This round will create 5 chain gap spaces. These gap spaces form the foundation for the next round of petals. You will also be working into the slst spaces from this round for round 4.

Round 4: Slst into the first chain gap space created from round 3. Ch. 3 (counts as a Dc) Dc 9 more times into the same gap space.
Slst into the slst space from round 3. You will find this space by looking in between the chain gap spaces. Doing so will secure the petal. *Dc 10 times into the next gap space. Slst into the slst space from round 3. Repeat from * all the way around. Slst to the first chain from the ch 3 you made at the beginning of the round.

Round 5: Round 5 will be adding another round on top of round 4 to create the pointed shape of the petals. To form the tips of the petals, use the following stitch combination:
sc, hdc, dc, dc, dc 2 in same stitch, ch. 2, dc 2 into the same stitch, dc, dc, hdc, sc. You will make each stitch listed above into one of the 10 stitches of each petal created from round 4. Repeat for each of the 5 petals.

After you’ve made the last sc of the last petal, to finish off the round slst into the sc in between the first and last petal. Bind off and weave in your ends.

Tip!!

I recommend you “finger block” your flowers to improve the shape. It’s easy for us to squish the flower as we crochet this design. Finger blocking will improve the shape! To view a demonstration on blocking, I recommend you have a look at this post:
