Crochet hook US size H

I used Sugar & Cream and Peaches & Creme yarn in various colors in addition to other various brand cotton yarns that I had.  Unfortunately I cant tell you how much yarn I used because I already had a lot of different colors in my stash.

DC = Double Crochet

CH = Chain
ST = Stitch
SL ST = Slip Stitch

Magic Ring = If you are not sure how to do this Google How to Crochet a Magic Ring

Join as you go = If you are not sure how to do this Google Join as you go Crochet Method

There are lots of tutorials on the internet for these methods

Full flower

Row 1:  Make a magic loop.  CH 3 (counts as first DC) 11 DC in magic loop.  Join with SL ST to 3rd CH of beginning CH 3. 12 stitches.

Fasten off if you are changing colors.

Row 2:  Join the next color in any DC.  Ch4 (counts as your first DC & CH 1).  DC CH 1 around in each ST.  Join with SL ST in the 3rd ch of the beginning CH 4 to close round. Do not fasten off.  12 DC with a ch 1 space in between.

Row 3:  SL ST into the first CH 1 space.  CH 3, 2 DC in the same CH 1 space.   3 DC in each CH 1 space around.  SL ST to the 3rd CH of the beginning CH 3 to close round.  Fasten off if you are changing colors.  36 DC (3 in each space).

Row 4:  Join next color in any DC.  CH 3 DC in same stitch CH 4, *skip over one DC, 2 DC in next ST, 2DC in next ST chain 4*. Repeat from * to * around until last 2 ST, SK 1 ST, 2DC in last ST.  Join with SL ST to 3rd CH of beginning CH 3.  Your ending join will be between the 2 sets of DC.  12 CH 4 spaces. Do not fasten off.

Row 5:  Make 8 DC in chain 4 SP.  Skip 2 DC, SL ST in between the 2 sets of DC.  SK 2DC, 8 DC in next CH 4 SP. Repeat around.  To end round SL ST in beginning ST and fasten off.
I used the join as you go method when making this curtain.  The join was in made in between  stitch  4 and 5 of the 8 DC on the last row.  See the picture on where to join each flower.

Assemble as follows

Row 1:  8 full flowers

Row 2:  Half flower, 7 full flowers, half flower.

Note: I added the full 7 flowers first, then went back and added the half flower on each end with the join as you go method into the space.   See the picture for where to start your first full flower on the 2nd row.  It will not be directly under the 1st flower. You will be joining the flowers on the bottom of the 1st row and on the sides of the 2nd row as you go.

Row 3:  2 full flowers on each side

Row 4:  1 half flower and 1 full flower on each side.  See row 2 for the order in which they were added.

Row 5:  1 Full flower on each side.

  6. I made this as a Valance 2 yrs ago for my Grandaughters bedroom. Didn’t have the written instructions at the time. Just went by the pic’s given of each step. Turned out very well. Love picture steps to copy from. They are Much better then a Chart. I call them Picture Patterns. Nice to see a written Pattern tho too.

  7. Hi Naomi Johnson you are welcome. Happy to hear from you. Actually im in love with this patroon. Enjoy crocheting. Kisses and hugs from here

  8. I think I am missing something. What is the Half Flower pattern. I do not see it.

  9. LOVE YOUR FLOWERS DO YOU HAVE THE PATTERN FOR THE PLACEMATS THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS

  10. Love all the flowers and colours! I`ll start crocheting them and -I hope- and then some day I’ll have a beautiful sort of table runner for the entrance hall cabinet… it’ll be a colourful, happy welcome home. Love from Spain

  11. Hi Thank you for the pattern. However I do have some tips if I may, I hope you do not find this rude, its meant to be helpful.
    I notice the pattern has a lot of capitals in it, not as a usual pattern would be written; for example ‘SL ST’ is always written as ‘ss’. All the caps made it look like the pattern was yelling at me! lol
    I went through it and ammended everything and replaced all the caps and long abbreviations, then included missing commas that are crucial.. It was time consuming but now it reads like a standard pattern and easier on the eye.
    Here is a portion of the ammended pattern just so you can compare:
    Row 4: Join next color in any tr. Ch3, tr in same stitch, ch4, *skip over one tr, 2 tr in next st, 2tr in next st, ch4*. Repeat from * to * around until last 2 st, sk 1 st, 2tr in last st. Join with ss to 3rd ch of beginning ch3. Your ending join will be between the 2 sets of tr. 12 ch4 spaces. Do not fasten off.
