Attach the slip knot to the crochet hook.

Petal: Work 3 Foundation Single Crochet, 3 Foundation Half Double Crochet, 2 Foundation Double Crochet, 1 Foundation Triple Crochet, Work 6 triple crochet at the base of the triple crochet. This will be working down the opposite side of the petal.  Work 1 DC in ea of the next 2 DC on the opposite side.  Work 1 HDC in ea of the next 3 HDC on the opposite side. Work 1 SC in ea of the next 3 SC on the opposite side.

Continue working the amount of petals would would like with your flower.  I have used 7 petals with the video example. When the petals are complete, slip stitch the last petal to the first petal. Cut the yarn, secure and knot the tail. 

Petal Edging:  Secure the new color to the the hook with a slip knot.  Join on any petal.  Slip stitch in the loop behind the stitch.  Chain 1, SC in the same loop.  Work 1 SC in the loop behind the stitch with each of the next 7 stitches.  Work 2 SC in the loop behind the stitch, in each of the next 7 stitches. Work 1 SC in the loop behind the stitch, in each of the remaining 8 stitches. Work a slip stitch between the petals. Continue

Flower Center:  Secure the new color to the the hook with a slip knot.  Work a chain of 3, SL ST to join.  
Round 1: Ch 1, Work 16 DC through the center, join with the beginning stitch.
Round 2: CH 1, *Work a Back Post Single Crochet(see video), CH 3 Back Post Single Crochet around the next stitch.  Continue around from *, join with the beginning stitch.  When the center is complete, cut a long length of yarn.  This will be used for sewing the center to the flower.

Align the center to the petals and sew in place. Sew in all the tails.


  1. hi Theresa:) my name Sarie from Indonesia (ASIA), maybe you don't know my country (if you know about Bali, that BALI island is a part of my country),

    For sure, i am your fans. Your site so awesome:) i love it, and enjoy every single instruction that you wrote also video is really helpful.

    i learned so many thing from you, not only crochet, but also about your kindness. May God bless you:)

  2. Hello Theresa, I love your work, but I'm having some problems with the number of chains to begin some of your projects, because i'm portuguese and the yarn in my country are different, and i don't now how to convert them. For exemple i want to make a children hat, how many chains to begin?

  3. Hi Theresea,
    I love your flower power- large flower crochet. The video for the project was awesome. I could get the first petal done without any problems but the second one would not turn out like it should. I guess I might have been doing something wrong because this is the first time I have used a chainless foundation.I will try again to make the other petals.
