Little Crochet Flowers

Howdy folks! So its safe to say ive always been in love with crochet flowers. Especially in winter i love the brightness they can add to a grey dreary day ☺. So today im going to share with you how i make my very own crochet flower appliques.
Now im not saying that theres not a pattern out there exactly the same. What i am saying is i havent followed a pattern to make these i figured it out all on my lonesome 😊. So here goes.

Please note all instructions are in english crochet terms, american terms will be in brackets ☺

Materials: any yarn and hook you like or have to spare. Im using a 4mm hook and some pink acrylic double knit yarn.

1. Make a slip knot, slip onto hook, tighten, chain 4.

2. Make a slip stitch into the last (or 4th) chain from the hook to make a itty bitty circle. We are now going to crochet into the middle of this circle.

Note: as a general rule of thumb i crochet into the circle multiples of 2 of how many petals i require. Here i will be making 5 petals so i wil double crochet 10 into the circle. If you wanted 6 petals double crochet 12 into the circle and so forth.

3. Double crochet (single crochet) 10 times into the circle. You should now have 10 stitches.

4. Chain 5, skip one stitch, slip stitch into the next stitch. Repeat around. Slip stitch into the first stitch where you began your chain 5.

5. Slip stitch into the first chain. 5 treble crochet (double crochet) into the chain. Slip stitch into the chain. First petal done ☺.

6. Repeat step 5 four more times. After your last slip stitch make another slip stitch into the first petal. Finish of. Weave in any ends.

Voila. A little bit of flowery cuteness to brighten your grey days 😊.
