Using DK weight yarn and a 3.5mm hook this pattern creates a 6 petal flower about 3 cm (1 1/2 inches) across. Although I’m based in the UK, I’m using USA stitch names in this pattern. Obviously you can make smaller or bigger flowers by using different size hooks and different weight yarns.
Tip: Make your chains in the 1st round quite loose, otherwise the 2nd round is a bit of a trial on the nerves.
Make a magic ring and make 5 sc (single crochet) in the ring.
Join last sc to 1st in the ring
Round 1: Chain 2, then slip stitch (ss) in 1st sc. Chain 2, ss in next sc and repeat around and join with a ss. You will end up with 6 chain spaces (ch sp).
Round 2: 1ss, 1 ch, 3 dc (double crochet), 1 ch, 1 ss in each chain space round. Join to 1st ss with ss.
As you can see from the picture, it’s a pretty cute pattern, and I think, quite versatile. The yarns I’ve used here are all Rowan Wool Cotton, in my favourite shades of purple.
