I Love my mum so very very much! Like my younger sister says, "She's my sunshine" So to treat her on this mother's day, I went out and cut the most beautiful roses in our garden for her to make her a big bouquet! She of course loved them!
So seeing as most of us have been buying, picking and giving flowers over the last two days, I thought I would do a new crochet flower tutorial!
4.50 Crochet Hook
3 Types of 8ply Wool
Tapestry or Wool Needle
Start by making a Slip Knot then chain 3 Chain Stitches. Crochet 9 Half Double Crochets into the third chain from your crochet hook. Join with a Slip Stitch into the top of the previous chains you made. This counts as the first half double crochet.
Change colour then chain 2. Crochet a half double crochet into the same stitch. *Chain one then crochet 2 half double crochets into the next stitch. Repeat from * all the way around. Join together with a slip stitch.
Change colour again. *Chain 2 then skip 2 stitches and slip stitch into that stitch. This creates a small loop. Repeat from * all the way around. Slip stitch into last stitch.
Stay the same colour. *Chain 3 then crochet 3 Double Crochets into the small loop you created before. Chain 3 and slip stitch into the loop. Slip stitch into the next loop. Repeat from * all the way around. Slip stitch into last stitch.
Change back to your first colour, then single crochet all the way around your flower, join together with a slip stitch.
Weave in ends.
I hope you all enjoy this tutorial, I have a Rosette Tutorial for anyone who wants to try their hands at another flower!
If you did crochet this flower, please post a photo of your creation onto my Facebook Page, I'd love to see it! Please Subscribe to my blog, it would really make my day!
Have a great day crocheting!
