Grace's Flower is named after my Grandmother Grace - as well as the yarn I used, Paton's Grace! This is a sports weight cotton yarn, and I used a 3 mm hook:
The flower measures nearly 3 inches/7 cm across.
Learn how to join your Grace's Flowers together as you go:
The flowers for my join-as-you-go creation are worked in lace weight (Alize Miss) with a 1.75 mm hook.
Each flower measures 1¾"/4½ cm across, and the whole piece is 5½"/14 cm across the widest point.
Round 1: Start with a magic ring - here's my page about how to make it.
Ch 2, 18 dc (UK tr) into ring.
Join with a ss into your 1st dc (UK tr):
*Ch 5, skip first 3 ch from hook, 1 dc (UK tr) into 4th and 5th ch from hook - first petal made.
Join with a ss into next stitch of ring, 1 ss into each of next 2 stitches*
Repeat from * to * four times.
Ch 5, skip first 3 ch from hook, 1 dc (UK tr) into 4th and 5th ch from hook. Join with a ss into next stitch of ring, 1 ss into next stitch, ss into bottom space of first petal:
This makes quite a pretty little flower on its own!
Now we make three loops of 5 ch going around each petal.
*Ch 5, ss into top space of petal, ch 5, ss into same space, ch 5, ss into bottom space of petal.
Ch 2, ss into bottom space of next petal.*
Repeat from * to * five times, finishing your last ss into the bottom space of your first petal.
The first petal.
The last slip stitch.
Tie off and thread tail end through that bottom space to the back and weave in. Weave in your other end.
Wishing you graceful crochet stitches in all that you do ;)
