Cute 'n Simple Flower
by Rachel Geller
This flower works up quickly, and can be used for a variety of projects. They would look nice on barrettes, and, if you're really ambitious, you could make enough to edge a tablecloth!
Gauge: Really not too important. It depends on how you want your flower to look and what size you want it to be.
Materials: Small amount of #10 cotton thread. Any hook (I used a US size 6 steel and obtained the size of flower showed in photo, however, one could use a smaller hook to achieve a small flower.) This pattern could also be worked in yarn (although I've not tested it that way) to obtain a larger flower.
Round 1: Ch 8 (not loosely), sl st in first ch to form lp.
Round 2: Ch 1, work 12 sc in loop, finishing with a sl st in 1st sc.
Round 3: (Ch 10, sk 2 sc, sl st into 3rd sc)3 times. Ch 10, sl st into starting sc.
Round 4: Ch 1, (Sc, hdc, dc, 10 tr, dc, hdc, sc) in all four ch-10 loops. Finish with a sl st in beginning sc.
Round 5: (Ch 3, sl st in next stitch) across all four petals. Last sl st goes into same stitch as beginning ch 3. Tie off. Weave in ends. You're done!
