I have been asked to give a pattern for my little flowers. I will start by saying I just dabble in very simple crochet. I actually took a couple different patterns and played around with them to get these flowers. Here is my attempt to give you a pattern for them.
I used size 10 bamboo crochet thread and a size 3 (2.10 mm) crochet hook.
Crochet Flower Pattern:
Start with a Base Adjustable Ring (directions below)
Make 2 more chain stitches, then into your ring,: 5(1Hdc, 2 ch) Now pull your base adjustable ring to take up all the slack, then slip stitch into first set of chain stitches you started with. (second chain from the top) This connects your first row, making a little ring.
Then for next row:
Around first set of chain stitches (Don’t stitch into the threads of the chains, but all the way around the entire chain.) 1 Hdc, 2Dc, 1Hdc, then Sc into Hdc from first row, repeat around the circle to make your 6 petal daisy.
These instructions for the base adjustable ring came from Applehead.
If anyone is a master crochet artist and you have ideas for better wording in my pattern, please let me know. :-)
