Recently I shared photos of a crochet flower from a Japanese crochet book on Instagram and many of you have asked for the pattern. I have translated just the flower pattern and below this is an image of the book and a link to where it can be purchased. Hope you like it!
This pattern is written in US terms
I have used both 4 ply Hobbii Organic Rainbow cotton and 4 ply Lincraft cotton
I used a 2.5 mm crochet hook, you may want to use a 2.75 or 3 mm depending on your tension and how loose or tight you want the fabric
Round 1: Magic circle, 3 ch then 23 dc into the circle, pull tightly, ss into 3rd ch of first 3 ch to close round, fasten off ( 24 dc including 3 ch)
Round 2: standing dc into any dc, 1 ch, repeat dc, 1ch till the end of the round , ss into first dc to close round (24 dc, 24 ch)
Round 3: ch 1, sc into first dc *11ch, 3 sc into next 3 dc* repeat from * to * 7 times till you have eight 11 ch “petals”then ss into first sc to close round, there should be a bit of a space between the last stitch and the next 11 ch to fit in the petal dc’s in the next round
Round 4: *8dc into 11 ch space, 1 ch, 8 dc into the same 11 ch space, sc into middle sc of the 3 sc from the previous round* repeat 8 times to make 8 petals, ss into stitch before first petal, fasten off.
