Pocket Full of Posies

At the request of Hannah, here are the directions to make this sweet little crochet flower. These would be adorable attached to a hat, a purse, or your lapel. The list goes on and on.

What you need:

4 mm crochet hook ;7 yards yarn; yarn needle

1.) Start by making a chain of six stitches.

2.) Join to the first stitch with a slip stitch.

3.) Chain three.

4.) Make 14 double crochets right into the center of the ring.

5.) Attach with a slip stitch. To do this, push your hook into the space between the chain of three and the first double crochet.

6.) Chain 1.

7.) In the next stitch, make three stitches: 1 half double, 1 double, 1 triple.

8.) In the next stitch make three more stitches: 1 triple, 1 double, 1 half double. Chain 1.

9.) Make a slip stitch into the next stitch.

10.) Repeat steps 6-9 until you have 5 petals. Make a slip stitch into the last stitch.

11.) Cut the end of the yarn until it's about 6 inches long. Pull it all the way through the last stitch to tie it off. Weave the loose yarn into the flower.

The flower in the top right hand corner is a different pattern. I'm still working on that one. ;o)

These are lovely, Tracy! And I wanted to say that I loved your post on the importance of setting a pretty table, even when it's not a holiday and you don't have company visiting. That reminds me of the stories I've heard about people who die without ever using their pretty china, or wearing their pretty clothes, because they were saving them for a "special occasion". They didn't realize that they could make any occasion special, and that there's nothing more special than sharing time with those you love...Thank you for this important reminder, Tracy. I'm going to set a nice table for dinner tonight.
