Welcome to my very first blog post. I am equal parts nervous and excited about this. Crochet has become such an integral part of my life that this blog just felt like a logical next step. And all this is happening because of the amazing community of crafters on Instagram.
Ok, so about these flowers.
This is such an easy pattern to make. 3 rounds and you are done!
So lets start.
The tutorial on how to customise these and join them as you go can be found here.
The tutorial to turn these in squares can be found here
Any yarn and a hook corresponding to the yarn size (I have used 10ply cotton yarn and a 5mm hook for the flowers here)
A pair of scissors
A darning needle
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sk – skip
ch-sp – chain space
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
tr – treble crochet
Pattern & Tutorial
Make a slip knot. Ch 4 and sl st in the last chain from the hook to form a circle. Ch 3 (counts as first dc) and then make 13 dcs in the circle. Join with a sl st in the 3rd ch of the first ch 3. Break yarn and weave in the ends. (Total – 14dcs)
Sl st in any one of the dcs from the previous round. Ch 4, sk 1 dc and sc in top of the next dc. (ch 3, sk 1 dc, sc in top of next dc) 5 times. Ch 3, sk 1 dc and then sl st in the 1st ch of the first 4 ch’s made. Now you can add another colour here or continue with the same yarn. (Total – 7 3ch-sp)
In the first ch 3 sp, make 1 hdc, 1 dc, 2 tr , 1 dc, 1 hdc and then make a sl st in the same ch sp. Make (1hdc, 1dc, 2tr, 1dc, 1hdc, sl st) in the next 6 ch 3 spaces from the previous round. Sl st in the first hdc, break yarn and weave in the ends. (Total – 7 petals)
And Voila! You just made your first Easy Peasy Flower.
Now you can stop at just one but where’s the fun in that!!
I hope you give these a go. The possibilities are endless and I would LOVE to see what you make with them. If you share your makes on Instagram, then please do tag them using the #easypeasyflower so I can have a look at all the lovely flowers you make.
This is my first written pattern so if you find any mistakes or if something doesn’t make sense then please do ask and I’ll be more than happy to help.
And, thank you so much for stopping by.
