Pattern Notes

  • This pattern in written in American English terminology.
  • Instructions in *stars* are repeated the number of times indicated after the second *.



Foundation Row: Make a magic ring. (Or ch 6 and join with sl st.) Ch 1. *Sc in loop. Ch 5* 6 times. Join with sl st to first sc. If you used a magic ring, pull the loop tight. (6 ch-5 sp)
Row 1: Sl st into first ch-5 sp. Ch 4. (Counts as tr.) 11 tr in same sp. *12 tr in next ch-5 sp* 5 times. Join with sl st to 4th ch of ch 4. Fasten off. Leave a long (12”) tail.

1) With the tail, catch the post of the first and the last tr of each petal. You will have 2 sts on one side of the yarn (the last stitch of one petal and the first stitch of the next petal) and 10 on the other side, 2 sts on the one side, 10 sts on the other side, etc.

2) Once  you have caught all 12 posts, pull until you can not see the yarn tail, but you still have a nice open space in the center. You can weave in the end or use it to attach the flower.


Row 1: Ch 10. Dc in 3rd ch from hook and each st across. Fasten off. Leave 8” tail.  
For some of the smaller yarns, I made a shorter chain and sc instead of dc because the dc’s were to tall.

Use the tail to join the piece into a loop by sewing down the edges. Sew along the bottom, along the foundation chain, and pull tight to make a little bowl.


Foundation Chain: Ch 12
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Hdc in next st. 2 dc in next st. Tr in next st. 2 Tr in next st. Tr in next st. Dc in next 2 sts. Hdc in next st. Sc in next st.  5 sc in last sc.

Now you will work around the end of the chain onto the back, unused loops of the foundation chain.

Sc in next st. Hdc in next st. Dc in next 2 sts. Tr in next st. 2 tr in next st. Tr in next st. 2 dc in next st. Hdc in next st. Sc in last st. Ch 1. Sl st into first sc and fasten off with a tail long enough to attach to your project.

Use the remaining length of yarn on the flower center to attach the center to the hole in the middle of the petals. Secure and weave in ends. Attach leaves where desired. Weave in ends.
