I made this pattern for my beginner learners who could only chain after the first week. It meant that they felt they had achieved something they could hold in their hand at the end. It is not very sophisticated but great for learning or for young crocheters to decorate bags, hairbands or to stick on birthday cards.
4mm hook, Double Knitting yarn.(UK terms)
To begin, make a slip knot for the first stitch
Chain 4. Join in a circle with a slip stitch.
Chain 6. Without twisting the chain, join it into the centre of the circle with a double crochet.
Repeat making these 6ch petals and joining each one into the centre of the flower. Add 5 or 6 petals, your choice. Add the petals in an anti clockwise direction (right handers) and try not to ruck them up or make them on top of each other.
Pull yarn through the last stitch and ensure it sits snuggly between the petals. Tie off on the back and use the tails to sew it to your item.
Variations - You can make longer petals with more chains to make a daisy shaped flower. Make them on different sized hooks and layer them up. Add buttons to the centre. Find your own style and make loads!
