A Classic 6 Petal Crochet Flower

A beautifully finished 6 petal crochet flower. Add a button for a fast and satisfying project:

6 petal crochet flowers in pink and lilacThese flowers were crocheted with Lion Brand Bonbons sports weight cotton and a 3 mm hook. They measure 2 inches/5 cm across.

We begin with a magic ring - my page about working it is here.

If sewing on a button, use one of your tail ends to attach it before weaving in.

Pattern

US Terms:

Round 1: Make a magic ring.

Ch 4, 18 trc into ring. Join with a ss to your 1st trc. (I put my trusty stitch marker into the ss as we will finish the next round in this stitch.)

Round 2: 1 sc into next st, 5 dc into next.

*1 sc into each of next 2 sts, 5 dc into next st.*

Repeat from * to * four times.

Finish with a ss into your joining ss (which I stitch marked.)

Tie off gently and weave this end from front to back through the back loop of your 1st sc of this round.

Now weave in both ends neatly.

Want to add an extra flower? OK!

Another 6 petal crochet flower I've designed is Anne's Fleurette.

She sits rather nicely in the middle, I think!

A little white flower sits on top of the 6 petaller

You can add a button to this, too.

(Hope you haven't noticed my button only has five petals, but never mind!)

A little pink button sits on top of the two flowers

Hope you enjoy this little piece :)
