6 Petal Picot Flower

This flower is a wonderful shape and is fun and quick to crochet, too, being only two rounds:

Use whatever yarn you like. My flowers are made with sports weight cotton and a 3 mm hook. They measure two and a half inches wide, or just over 6 cm.

Here's the Pattern!

We begin with a magic ring - here's my page about that if you're not familiar with it.


US Terms:

Round 1: Ch 4, 17 trc into magic ring.

Join with a ss into 1st trc. (I put a stitch marker into this ss, as we will work our last stitch into it.)

Round 2:

Into the same 1st trc, work the following:

ch 3, 3 dc, ch 2, ss into 2nd ch from hook, (picot made,) 3 dc, ch 3, ss.

Miss next stitch (which is hiding a bit under your petal! See pic below.) Sc into next stitch.

*Into next stitch work ss, ch 3, 3 dc, ch 2, ss into 2nd ch from hook, (picot made,) 3 dc, ch 3, ss.

Miss next stitch, sc into next stitch.*

Repeat from * to * three more times to make five petals.

Last petal:

Into next stitch work ss, ch 3, 3 dc, ch 2, ss into 2nd ch from hook, (picot made,) 3 dc, ch 3, ss.

Miss next stitch, ss into joining ss at beginning of round (which I stitch marked earlier.)

Weave in ends - see how I finish below.

Some photos to show you the action!

The magic ring.

I chained 4, then worked 17 stitches into the ring, pulled it fairly tight and slip stitched into the first stitch - not the top of the 4 chain!

I put a stitch marker into that slip stitch so that I can clearly see where I will finish the next round:

So you work your first petal - then you miss a stitch.

But that next stitch is almost hidden away under the width of the petal.

The lighter stitch marker on the left shows you where that naughty stitch is hiding:

Don't be afraid to pull the petal out a bit to check for the next stitch you must miss. It is there, I assure you!

slip stitch finishing

Finishing your flower.

Tie off, pull your tail end gently to tighten.

Weave the end into the back. I thread it through the back loop of the same stitch I last worked into - that is, the joining slip stitch at the beginning of the round.

Here's a shot from the wrong side of the flower:

weaving in the end

After that, pull your magic ring tight again to neaten things up, weave that end in very carefully, and you're all done:
