I really love making flowers. There are so many things you can do with them! I love using them as coasters, or connecting them into long garlands. We have a ton floating around the house, and my little cousins love collecting them every time they’re over. These little guys are easy to make and are definitely addicting!
To start, chain 5 then slip stitch in first chain to form a ring. You will work out of this ring for the first round.
Round 1: Ch4 (counts as first dc and ch1), then dc in ring.
ch2, *dc, ch1, dc, ch2*
Repeat between ** 4 more times until you have 6 ch2 spaces
To finish round, sl st in the 3rd ch of the first ch4.
Round 2: Sl st across so you’re ready to work out of the first ch2 space
In the first ch2 space, (ch3 (counts as first dc), dc, ch2, 2dc), then sl st in ch1 space of previous round
*(2 dc, ch2, 2dc) in ch2 space, sl stitch ch 1 space of previous round* You can start to see the petals forming in this round!
Repeat ** 4 more times until you have 6 petals
To finish round 2, sl st to top of first ch3
You can end here for a smaller, pointier flower, or continue with round 3 for a bigger one!
sl st across until you’re in first ch2 space
ch3 (counts as first dc), 4dc in ch2 space
ch1 then sl st in sl st from previous round
*ch1, 5 dc in ch2 space, ch1, sl st in sl st of previous round*
Repeat between ** 4 more times
Finish flower with ch1 and slst in top of first ch3
And you’re done! They’re really simple and really cute!
If you end after round 2, you’ll have smaller flowers like these below!
You can also easily adjust the size of your flower just by changing hook size. Each of the flowers below were made with the same yarn and pattern, but with different hooks.
This is my first attempt at a tutorial and it was really fun to make! I hope everything is clear enough, but if you have any questions, please let me know!
