HDC - Half Double Crochet
CH - Chain

Materials
Size H/5 mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn
Tapestry Needle

Work a chain of 10.
Work 3 HDC in each chain.
The stitches will start to curl.  This is what we want to happen.

Knot and cut a long length of yarn. Weave the yarn through the foundation chain and pull so it curls more.  Once the flower is adjusted, knot and secure everything in place.

The chain can be made longer for a longer flower.
