In today’s Instructable, we’re gonna learn how to make this pretty seven-petal flower, which is a really easy crochet project (this means that you just need to know the basic stitches and techniques to make it).

I hope that you like it ^_^

Let’s begin!

2:49 Step by step

7:15 Tips and tricks

7:34 Ending

## Step 2: Materials

- Crochet Hook (D3)

- Yarn (sport weight yarn)

-Scissors

- Tapestry needle

## Step 3: Gauge

To make a 2 inch flower, using the single crochet stitch, you can make a 2 inch square, and if at the end you have 9 rows, with 9 stitches each, then you are using the right hook and yarn.

2 inch = 9 stitches
For this example, i used a sport weight yarn and a D3 hook.

## Step 4: Chart

To make the flower's center, in a magic ring we are gonna work:

- 6 chain stitches, a Double Crochet, 2 chain stitches and we are gonna repeat this pattern 5 more times.

Remember, the pattern is a Double Crochet and 2 chain stitches.

To finish the round, work a slip stitch in the fourth chain that we worked at the beginning of the round.

To make the first petal:

- Work a slip stitch in the nearest two-chain space, work 2 chain stitches, a Double Crochet, a Half Treble Crochet, a Double Crochet, 2 chain stitches and finish with a slip stitch in the same two-chain space.

Now repeat this pattern in all the spaces of two chains.

## Step 5: Phototutorial - Step 01: Flower's Center (I)

To begin with the center of the flower, we must have already a Magic Ring, which is a basic crochet technique whose Instructable is HERE.

Once that we have ready the magic ring, we must work 6 chain stitches.

To work a chain stitch: yarn over and pull the hook through the loop that was already on it. Now repeat it 4 more times.

## Step 6: Phototutorial - Step 01: Flower's Center (II)

Once that we have finished the 6 chain stitches, we are going to work a Double Crochet.

To make it: yarn over and pass the hook through the ring, yarn over again, pull the hook and you must have 3 loops on it. Yarn over and pull the hook through the first two loops, yarn over one last time and pull the hook through the last two loops on it.

## Step 7: Phototutorial - Step 01: Flower's Center (III)

Now, work 2 chain stitches.

And repeat this pattern in 5 more times.

Remember, the pattern is a Double Crochet and 2 chain stitches.

## Step 8: Phototutorial - Step 01: Flower's Center (IV)

To finish the first round, work a slip stitch in the fourth chain that we worked at the beginning of it.

## Step 9: Phototutorial - Step 02: Flower's Petals (I)

To begin with the second round, we are gonna find the nearest two-chain space, and in it, we are going to work a slip stitch, two chain stitches and a Double Crochet.

## Step 10: Phototutorial - Step 02: Flower's Petals (II)

Right after make a Half Treble Crochet.

To make it: yarn over twice and pass the hook through the two-chain space, yarn over, pull the hook and you must have 4 loops on it. Yarn over and pull the hook through the first two loops, yarn over one last time and pull the hook through the 3 loops on it.

## Step 11: Phototutorial - Step 02: Flower's Petals (III)

Now, work again a Double Crochet, two chain stitches and finish with a slip stitch in the same chain-two space.

Now repeat this pattern in all the spaces of two chains.

## Step 12: Phototutorial - Step 02: Flower's Petals (IV)

To finish, close the magic ring and finish off.

Thank you,for your expanded exclamation of flower.
I'm confused what &amp; where do I put the chain 2?
<p>Hi Patti! =)</p><p>I think you're having troubles with the flower's center, right?</p><p>At first you are going to start with 6 chains, where 4 of them are gonna be the first &quot;Double Crochet&quot; (usually are 3, but if you use 4 the flower looks so much better), and the other two are used to separate the first and the second Double Crochet.</p><p>Once that you have finished your 6 chains, you're gonna work a Double Crochet, and once again two chain stitches, to separate the second and the third Double Crochet.</p><p>You have to repeat this pattern (double crochet + 2 ch) until you have 7 Double Crochet (counting the first chain stitches as the first Double Crochet).</p><p>And in the second round, we're going to use those chains to work the flower's petals.</p><p>If you have more doubts, let me know ^_^</p>
