FLOWERS

Half Flower Tutorial
As promised here it is
First
Here are a few tips:
I always start with a magic loop
(If you google it several tutorials come up)
I always crochet over my
ends as I go
(I HATE weaving in ends)
I am using American crochet terms
Written directions are below each picture
Make a magic loop
Chain 3 (counts as first DC)
DC 6 in loop Fasten off
(7 DC)
Draw up the loop so all
DC are on one side
Draw up loop in 3rd chain
of previous row
Chain 4(counts as DC ch 1)
DC ch 1 in each stitch
(7 DC ch 1 spaces)
Fasten off
Here is the back side showing where I crocheted over my ends.Β  In addition, I take a needle and run the starting thread (pink here) thru the 7 DC on the magic loop
just to insure a good hold.
(Just be sure you go in a clockwise direction to continue the circle – if you go the other direction your defeating the purpose)
Draw up loop in 3rd ch 1 space of previous row
chain 3(counts as first DC)
2 DC in same ch 1 space
3 DC in each chain 1 space across
Fasten off
(18 DC)
Draw up loop in 3rd chain from
previous row chain 3
(counts as 1st DC)
DC in same stitch, chain 4
skip next stitch, *2 DC in next stitch,
2 DC in next stitch, chain 4*
repeat from * until you reach the last 2 stitches
skip stitch, 2 DC in last stitch
Fasten off
Draw up loop between the 2 DC of previous row
ch 1 SC in loop
(I always start my sc joins like this)
8 DC in ch 4 sp
*skip 2 DC, slip stitch, skip 2 DC,
8 DC in chain 4 space*
repeat * across until the last 2 DC group,
SC between last 2 DC, fasten off
I use the join as you go method
when making this.
(If you google it there are plenty of tutorials)
