Green Thumb ~ How To: Crochet A Flower Motif

Not to toot my own horn, but I have quite the green thumb!
For instance, my whole porch is filled with potted flowers, not to mention the ones hanging from the ceiling in baskets.. it's my little piece of heaven on earth!
I'm always adding new flowers to my collection, so today when my mum rewarded me with my own orchid plant (for babysitting my little sister for the weekend) I had to do a little happy dance!... I really do have the best mum in the world!
So my beautiful new orchid has inspired me to do another crocheted flower tutorial!


Materials:
3.00 Crochet Hook
3 ply Cotton Yarn

OR 
If you don't have those things, you can still crochet the flower with these items!
4.50 Crochet Hook
8ply Polly Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry or Wool Needle

Instructions:
Round 1~ Start by making a Slip Knot. Chain 3 Chain Stitches (counts as a double crochet) then crochet 17 Double Crochets  into the ring. Join with a Slip Stitch to the top of Chain 3.
Round 2~ Chain 6 (Counts as double crochet and 3 chains) double crochet in the same stitch. Chain one. *Skip 2 double crochet stitches. Crochet a double crochet, chain 3, double crochet into the same stitch, chain 1. Repeat from * all around. Join with a slip stitch to the third chain of chain 6.
Round 3~ Chain 3 (counts as double crochet) crochet 2 double crochets in each of the next 3 chain stitches. Crochet 7 double crochets in each chain 3 space all around. Join with a slip stitch to the top of chain 3.
