Of course, my first pattern that I decide to share on here would be inspired while creating something for my beautiful little girl :)
I had an idea to crochet flowers, string them together and make garland to use at my daughter's 1st birthday, then move them to her room and hang from her closet or window. Since I already knew what colors I wanted, I went out and got the yarn, or in this case, 100% cotton. I chose the cotton because I felt that it would last longer and hold up better than your basic acrylic yarn.
Now, I needed a pattern! And boy, oh boy, did this become a task. After spending way too much time searching and testing small flower patterns with the cotton, I became discouraged. In the end, I came up with this simple flower by taking bits I liked from a couple of patterns and adding my own personal favorite techniques.
- Lily Sugar 'n Cream in:
- robin's egg
- lavender (scented)
- chamomile (scented)
- rose pink
- 5.5 mm crochet hook
- blunt eye needle
Let's start with a picture tutorial, then at the end, you can find the pattern written as a whole! :)
Tah - dah!! There it be! It's hard to resist making tons of these!
- ch 5 - join with sl st to first ch and form a ring
- ch 2 - 15 dc in ring - join with sl st to first dc - fasten off ONLY if you are doing two different colors
- with a standing sc, join new color to any dc - 6 dc in next st - sk 1 - *sc - 6dc - sk 1 * repeat from * to * around - join to first sc - fasten off
- weave in ends
That's it! Simple, easy and pretty! Just the way I like it! I've used basic crochet terminology so hopefully it is easy to understand. If you have any questions, please let me know!
Have fun making endless creations with these little flowers!!
