How to Crochet a Flower (Part 1)comments (27) March 6th, 2014
To make the second layer of petals, you'll work into the ch-5 loops you just created on the back side of the flower. Work round 4 with the right side of the flower facing you, as shown above.
Round 4: (Sl st, hdc, 5 dc, hdc, sl st) in each ch-2 sp around, sl st in first sl st to join-6 petals.
And there you have it-a simple crocheted flower! I left a long yarn tail because I will use it to attach some embellishments in next week's tutorial. If you like your flower just the way it is, use the tail to sew on a pin back before weaving it in.
You can add more layers to your flower by working a 5th round of scs and ch-5s (or ch-6s, or higher) around the same dc posts from round 1, and working a 6th round of petals into those ch-spaces. Experiment with the number of stitches in the petals of the later rounds to see what kind of effects they give your flower.
Here are three different ways to embellish this flower. If you end up making one, please leave a comment and a link (or post your photo in the gallery)-I'd love to see it!
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
