Happy Flower Decoration
This is a pattern/tutorial to show you how to make this Happy Flower wall hanging. You can read more about the design and making of the original decoration in this post. I'm using a cotton yarn to make this decoration, it's Rowan Handknit Cotton, a fairly robust DK weight yarn which I work on a 4mm hook. I love using this yarn for decorative projects as although it is soft and lovely to work with, the resulting crochet tends to be quite stiff and holds it's shape well. Plus aren't the colours scrummy?! Before we begin, a little summary of the basic stitches. sl st [slip stitch] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc [double crochet] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) dtr [double treble] :: yarn over TWICE, insert hook, yarn over, pull loop back through stitch (four loops on hook).
