How to Crochet a Flower (Part 1)comments (28) March 6th, 2014
Next, you'll work the same stitches into each ch-2 space around to form the petals. Generally, when I am designing flowers, I like to go from a short stitch (like a sl st, sc, or hdc) to tall stitch (dc, tr) and back to short again in the same space.
Round 2: (Sl st, hdc, 2 dc, hdc, sl st) in each ch-2 sp around, sl st in first sl st to join-6 petals.
This next step is where it can get a little tricky. You're going to work the next round on the back side of the flower. Ch 1 to prepare. If you like, you can also fasten off the yarn from the first set of petals and change colors, which I did to more clearly illustrate the next steps. If changing colors, join the new color around any dc post from round 1.
Begin by bringing the hook under the post of the dc, yarn over, and draw a loop to the side of the post closest to you. Bring the hook over the dc post, yarn over, and draw the yarn through the 2 loops on your hook. Work round 3 into the dc posts of the first round.
Round 3: Ch 1, sc around first dc from round 1, ch 5, (sc around next dc from round 1, ch 5) 5 times, sl st in first sc to join-6 ch-6 loops.
