Row 1:  Work 2 SC through the chain, turn

Take 3 petals, align them at the base where we ended with the 5 single crochet.  Sew them together at the tips.  Sew the second set of petals the same way.  Set them on top of each other and turn so the petals are off set from each other.  Sew them together so they stay in place.  Take the center, place it in the center and sew it in place.

Knot, secure and sew in the tails.

Materials
Yarn
Hook

This flower curls right around like a curly cue. You can make it as full/long as you want to while using any combination of petals.

Make a chain of 31.

Row 1: work a single crochet in the second chain from the hook, chain 2, skip 1 chain, work a single crochet in the next chain. Continue across. This is not a project that has to be precise. If you end up with an extra chain at the end, go head and make the last chain 2 and single crochet right next to the last single crochet. With this chain amount you will have about 15 chain 2 loops.

There is a variety of ways to make the petals. You can make your petals all the same or make them all different.

Petal 1: CH 1, 4 HDC, CH 1 SL ST. All in the same chain loop.

Petal 2: CH 1, 6 HDC, CH 1 SL ST. All in the same chain loop.

Petal 3: CH 1, 5 DC, CH 1 SL ST. All in the same chain loop.

Petal 4: CH 2, 5 DC, CH 2 SL ST. All in the same chain loop.

Petal 5: CH 1, 3 DC, SC, 3 DC CH 1 SL ST. All in the same chain loop.

Petal 6: CH 2, 5 TC, CH 2 SL ST. All in the same chain loop.

Petal 7: CH 2, 3 TC, HDC, 3 TC, CH 2 SL ST. All in the same chain loop.

Upon completion, you will cut off a long tail. Wind the flower around and shape it how you want it to look. Weave the needle through the stitches and push it to the opposite side going through all layers of the flower. Repeat this several times for a secure flower. Knot the tail and hide it when all layers are secure.
