– used a 4 mm hook.
– resulting in a 4 inch motif
– First, with color A (yellow in this example) chain 2 and make 6 single crochet into the second chain from your hook (the very first chain). Join to the first sc with a slip stitch. (Yarn over, insert hook into first sc, yarn over, pull up a loop) twice. You will now have 5 loops on your hook. Yarn over and draw through all loops on hook (first sc 2 together made). Do the same into each sc around (sc 2 together in each sc). It helps to do all of the yo loosely so it’s easier to pull the final loop through all 5.
– Join with a sl st to first stitch.
– Cut yarn and weave in ends. Stick your finger or your hook into the center to push the right side outwards (you’ll have what looks like a little nubbin).
Join color B (white in this example) to the inside loop of one of the sc. In the photo below, I have the hook in the outside loop as an example of what NOT to do (haha). In other words, you won’t be working under both loops of the “v,” just the loop that is closest to the center of your nubbin.
After you have joined color B, chain 12 as shown in the photo below. Notice that the nubbin is pointed away. Essentially, you are working into what seems to be the wrong side of your work.
Slip stitch into the same loop you started in to make the first petal. Chain 12 again and sl st into the same loop. You now have 2 petals in your first loop. (Slip stitch into the next loop, ch 12, sl st in same loop, ch 12, sl st in same loop) around until you get to the end. Slip stitch in first loop and finish off color B. Here’s what it will look like as you go and when you are done:
Join color C (green in this example) to any petal. Chain 1, sc into the same petal, chain 4. (Sc into next petal, ch 4) around. Join with a sl st to first sc. Finish off and weave in your ends.
