Spring is just around the corner and its a great time to start crocheting for the new season! I came with a simple little spring flower pattern that I think you will like. It starts with the Magic Ring which a lot of you frequently ask me about. There is a wonderful tutorial on how to make a magic ring over at Petals to Picots blog. You can find the tutorial HERE.
I decided to change colors to make the middle a different color, but you could crochet this entire pattern in one color and add a colorful button to make the center as well.
-Worsted weight yarn (I recommend Vanna's Choice)
-Size H Crochet Hook
Magic Ring: HERE is the tutorial
DC = Double Crochet
Sl St = Slip Stitch
Spring Flower Pattern
Magic Ring, chain 2 in ring, make 6 DC in ring, pull tight (change color if you wish) join to first DC, chain 3.
Round 2: 2 DC in same stitch as your chain 3, Chain 3 and slip stitch in the same stitch as your first chain 3 and 2 DC's, Chain 3, 2 DC in next stitch, Chain 3 and sl st in same stitch, repeat around.
So you should have *Chain 3, 2 DC, Chain 3* in each stitch all the way around making 6 petals.
Fasten off and weave in all ends but one long one to sew onto your hat, purse, or other project.
Looking forward to seeing how you use your spring flowers!
I have created a video tutorial on how to crochet this flower! It really is simple :) I hope this helps any of you who may be confused by the way I wrote the pattern.
