Crocheted flower so simple...2nd post

Thanks to the new Blog that I have found, Crochet Greek ...she has free instructions very very nice for her to I'm going to pass it on to you...

Skill Level - Intermediate

SC - Single Crochet
HDC - Half Double Crochet
CH - Chain
SL ST - Slip Stitch
TC - Triple Crochet

Size 1 steel crochet hook
Size 5 Thread
Tapestry Needle

Stitch Instructions and Definitions:

Triple Crochet: Wrap the thread around your hook twice, insert through the top loops of the previous stitch or below the chain, wrap the thread over, pull through. Wrap the thread over the hook, pull through two loops, wrap the thread over the hook, pull through two loops, wrap the thread over the hook, pull through two loops. This completes the triple crochet.

Chain 5, join

Round 1: Chain 3, this will count as the first stitch, DC through the chain ring. *Chain 2, 2 DC, 7 times total from *, work a final chain 2, join with the beginning chain 3. (2 Double Crochet, Chain 2 - 8 total)

Round 2: SLST to the chain 2 space. CH 1, SC in the same space, *CH 5, SC in the next space, 7 times total from *, chain 5, join with the beginning single crochet. (There will be a total of 8 chain 5 loops with a SC between)

Round 3: SL ST to the chain 5 space. *CH 2, work 9 triple crochet through the chain 5, CH 2, slip stitch in the same space, slip stitch to the next chain 5, Complete 8 times total from *. (There will be 8 petals with 9 triple crochet each and a chain 2 on each end)

I'm almost finish I'm on the forth pedal...I hope that my daughter can do this one which I believe she can the instructions are so simple I understood them she gives you the meaning of the abbreviations. which is another plus...I never could read the directions very well, so I always have Crocheted by looking...and making my own patterns up...
This is a great blog so glad that I found it...Hope you join it along with me...
One more pedal and I'm finish it just took maybe 15 minutes...and it's so sweet...

  1. Your little crocheted flower is so sweet. My sister crochets and knits, and I have always thought it was such a talent when one knows how to. I will have to check out your friend's blog. Do you know that I am part Greek? Happy St. Patrick's Day, my friend.
