Crochet Thread Flower, Photo Tutorial

One of the readers asked me for help with Brunfelsia Inspired Crochet Flowers, and I promised her to make a photo tutorial.

Size 10 crochet cotton thread, size 10 hook.

We begin by making ch 5 and joining it with a sl st into a ring.

Next we work the first round. Ch 2, *sc in ring, ch 1* 4 times, join with a sl st.

After this round we should have 5 ch-1 spaces. We will use these ch spaces to make five petals.

In the second round we make our petals. Here is how a petal is made: (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 3, sl st) all in the same space.

Then we use a sl st to get into next ch-1 space, and again we make a petal: (ch 3, 2dc, ch 3, sl st) all in that ch-1 space.

In the same manner, we make all five petals, and a sl st to join with the first petal.

In the third round, we make the petals a bit bigger.

ch 4

Next we make a sc in top of the petal; that would be the space between 2 dc.

Again ch 4

And now we make a sl st into space between two petals.

The picture below shows how I worked two petals.

And in the same manner, we work all five petals.

That’s it! Fasten off!
