How to Crochet a Flower (Part 1)comments (24) July 16th, 2008
One of the most common questions I get from new crocheters is "How do I make those cute layered flowers?" In this two-part tutorial, I'll show you how to work in the round in layers to make the flower and (next week) how to embellish the flowers to really make them yours.
Please note: This pattern uses standard crochet abbreviations. You can find a list of all standard abbreviations here.

To begin, wrap the yarn around your finger once and make a magic ring. If you're not familiar with the magic ring, you can also just work into the first slipknot—I do this quite often.
Work the first round into the ring.
Round 1: Ch 5 (counts as hdc, ch 2), (hdc, ch 2) in ring 5 more times, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch to join—6 ch-2 sps.
