I love lace and this pattern reminds me very much of one. It's repetitive so it can also be used to create a belt or, who knows, whatever your fantasy comes up with!
I used a crochet hook number 4 (1.75) and cotton number 5.
Happy crocheting!! :D
Step 1: Stitches
- chain stitch
- slip stitch
- single crochet - sc
- double crochet - dc
Chain 13 and slip stitch in the slipknot.
Chain 3 and make 25 dc all around the circle.
Slip stitch in the third chain you made previously.
Continue this way until you have 6 couples of sc. You will reach the middle of the circle this way.
We are going to make one half of the flower first and the second half later.
So, chain 6 and turn. Make a sc in the third sc of the previous row.
Keep doing this until you reach the last sc and turn.
These will be the petals of your flower.
Do the same for all 5 petals.
Once you have reached the last stitch of the last petal, make a sc in the first sc of the second half of the flower.
So, keep making 2 sc and 1 chain until you reach the other half and turn.
Chain 6 and make a sc between all the petals just like you did before.
Turn and complete the petals making 6 sc in each and a sc between them.
Your first flower is done!
