A simple little pattern today, and one that is excellent for the last few meters of yarn! A 2 layered flower!
This flower works great for most yarns, thickness's and hook sizes. I like to make them in fun colours to add to solid hats.
The small flower was made with lace weight mohair and a 2mm hook.
The middle blue glower was made with standard DK weight yarn and a 4.5mm hook
The chunky flower on the end was made with a 4.5mm hook still, but using a fluffy yarn that I would class as close to aran weight.
1: ch2, hdc 5 times in the 2nd chain from hook, join
2: ch1, (hdc, dc, hdc, ch1, sl) in same stitch, in each of the remaining 4 stitches do (sl, ch1, hdc, dc, hdc, ch1, sl)
3: ch4, sl st behind the flower and around the post between the previous rows petals (see images)
repeat around so you have 5 ch4 spaces
4: Into each ch4 space around do (sl st, ch1, hgdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc, ch1, sl) End off and leave a long tail so you can attach the flower wherever you desire.
