Cheerful Crochet Flower

Skill Level: Intermediate

Materials
Size G/4.0mm Hook
4 Ply Yarn

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

Extended Single Crochet - This is working a loose and taller single crochet so everything is not all squashed together.

Loop Behind Stitch - If you look at the top of a stitch, you will see a "V" shape. Right behind each stitch is another loop on the back side. This is what is meant by "Loop Behind Stitch" or "Loop in Back of Stitch". By working in the back of the stitch, the top "V" portion of the stitch is pushed to the front to create a unique effect. This is the same effect done to create ribbing.

Round 1: CH 1, pull up, this chain will not count as a stitch Work 1 HDC through the CH. *CH 7, SL ST to the top of the HDC you just completed. 2 HDC through the CH. Complete 5 times from *. CH 7, SL ST to the top of the HDC you just completed. Work 1 HDC through the CH. Join with the beginning HDC. Cut the yarn and change color. (There will be a total of 6 chain 7 loops, and 12 half double crochet.)

Round 2: SL ST the new color through any loop. CH 1, Work 12 HDC in each loop around. Join with a slip stitch to the beginning stitch. Cut the yarn and secure tail by pulling through the stitch. (There will be 6 petals with 12 HDC in each loop)

Round 3: SL ST the new color to round 1 between the petals. Work an extended SC between the petals and over round 2. Work 1 Single Crochet in the Loop Behind the Stitch of each HDC. There will be 12 SC worked on each petal. Work an extended SC between the petals, down to round 1. Complete for each petal. Join with a slip stitch to the beginning stitch. (There will be 6 petals with the back loop edging)

  5. These SO remind me of the pattern on my chenille bedspread when I was a child back in the fifties! That's when they knew HOW to make chenille, not like the junk they have today! I can so see these tacked onto a bedspread and pillow sham in a little girl's room.
    Thanks for the cute pattern.
