I've been making lots of flowers lately, and wasn't quite satisfied with any of them, so I decided to try making my own! I really liked having the center hole in the flower for attaching with a button, but small, defined petals.
You can make these with any yarn and corresponding size hook, so you can make this in any size you want.
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
slst: slip stitch
R1: Make a magic ring, 11sc in the ring. slst into first st, pull closed just enough to keep a hole but stitches meet.
R2: Turn, *ch4, sl st into next 2 st* around, sl st into last st.
R3: sl st into next ch4 space, (ch2, 2dc, ch2, sl st into same ch4 space, sl st into next ch4 space) around. At the end, sl st into the first ch of the last petal.
Cut a long end of yarn and weave into back of petals to stabilize shape of the flower. Weave in the end of the yarn coming from the ring, shaping the hole and ring to the size you want.
That's it! Let me know if you have any questions about this pattern or if I can make it more clear!
