To begin, wrap the yarn around your finger once and make a magic ring. Work the first round into the ring. Round 1: Ch 5 (counts as hdc, ch 2), (hdc, ch 2) in ring 5 more times, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch to join-6 ch-2 sps. View 3 member project galleries Related:  flowers

{capture the moment}: Embellish It! Senior Challenge Embellishments are the finishing touch that can bring a project from mediocre to amazing in just a matter of minutes, but they also can get to be expensive, especially some of the more intricate versions available on the market today. This month I have challenged the senior design team to take the path that Michelle Wooderson has explored lately (such as demonstrated in her posts HERE and HERE) and create their own embellishments with supply basics in their stash. Not only is Michelle's whole idea fun & economical, it also allows you to customize color & style to give you coordination possibilities for nearly any type of project. I thought I would start you off with my new little exploration, the world of crocheted flowers. I have created a step by step tutorial that even a beginner could follow along with. 4 yards DMC cotton embroidery floss (about half a standard package)US size 2 crochet hook If you would like to see my list of PTI/DMC numbers, you can access it HERE. ch= chain stitch

Teeny Tiny Flowers This is a very simple little crochet pattern for small five-petalled flowers and leaves.I love making crochet flowers. I love the decorative nature of them, that they can be used to embellish all sorts of crochet, knit or fabric garments and objects. They can be used to decorate a bag, a hat, a cushion, a coat. In rows, in little posies, or randomly scattered. First a word about yarn thickness and hook size.Below are three flowers made using the exact same pattern, but with different yarns and hooks.On the left, Rowan DK handknit cotton, on the recommended 4mm hook.In the middle, the same Rowan cotton, but on a 3.5mm hook.On the right, Rowan DK wool on a 3.5mm hook. I prefer to use a slightly smaller hook size than usual so that the flowers come out tighter/smaller (as in the middle flower). The pattern is written in UK terms, the stitches as follows :: sl st :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. For US peeps: UK dc = US sc

How to crochet leaves Hey crafty gals! I hope the weather is as nice where you are as it is here in Melbourne. I have all the windows in my house open and I am just soaking in this fabulous 70 degree weather with a refreshing crisp breeze. There's nothing like it! I hope you have checked out the Patterned Paper Wreath Remix--what a great way to welcome Spring! (Depending on what that little Groundhog sees tomorrow, I suppose.) First of all, the pattern for that oh-so-sweet flower is not a Crafty Girl original--it came from a blog called A Little Birdie Told Me. The leaves, though, are result of playing around and because I'm a new crocheter, my "pattern" may not be correct in terms of jargon, but I think you'll get the picture. ; ) Start with a chain of 14. This picture illustrates how to work your crochet into half of the chain. Here's a visual of how I wrote the pattern in my trusty graph-paper notebook that goes absolutely everywhere with me: Yeah.
