This little flower was created for a DIY on my podcast, Sticks and Stones. It’s a quick, easy and cute way to bring a little spring into your projects.  (www.sticksandstonespodcast.wordpress.com)

 

Materials

Scraps of DK yarn. You can use other weights, but this will change the size of the flower.

Size 4.0mm crochet hook

Sewing needle

Button or bead for the center

 

Gauge is not important in this project.

 

Abbreviations

Sl st- slip stitch

sc- single crochet

ch- chain stitch

 

To make flower

Make a slip knot and ch 6 sts.

Sl st at the ends together to make a circle.

Sc through the center of circle 10x.

Working through the bottom leg of each st from round 1, sc 3x in each st. Repeat around (30 sts).

Ch 2.

Working around the vertical bars created from the legs of each st in the last round, sc 3x on each bar.
