Ruffled Crochet Flower Pattern
This is such a very easy pattern, worked out of thread it makes a nice very fluffy accent for an accessory. I think worked out of worsted weight yarn it would be a great tawashi. Adjust hook size to match yarn type.
For this thread flower, I used size 10 thread in 2 shades and a size 7 hook.
With main color, ch 8 sl st to join in a ring
Rnd 1: ch 1 (does not count as first sc), 8 sc in ring, sl st to join
Rnd 2: ch 4 (counts as first dc and ch), dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1 in same st, *in the next st, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc, ch1* repeat ** around. Sl st to join in 3rd ch on starting ch 4. (3 dc in each st)
Rnd 3: sl st to ch 1 sp, ch 4 (counts as first dc and ch), dc in same space, ch 1, dc in same st, ch 1, *dc in next space, ch 1, dc in same space, ch 1, dc in same space, ch 1* repeat ** around, sl st to join in 3rd ch of initial ch 4. (3 dc in each ch 1 sp)
Rnd 4: Repeat round 3
Rnd 5: Change color if you wanted an accent color in a ch 1 or sl st to ch 1 sp. Ch 1 (does not count as first sc) sc in sp, ch 3, sc in next sp, ch 3, repeat around joining round with sl st. Break off and weave in ends.
For mine, I made a head band using a simple pattern.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, ch 3, skip 2 stitches, sc in next st, ch 3, sc in first ch
Row 2: ch 5, sc in ch 3 loop, ch 3, sc in next ch 3 loop, ch 2, dc in last sc
Row 3: ch 1 to turn, sc in dc, ch 3, sc in ch 3 loop, ch 3, sc in 3rd ch on ch 5 from previous row
Row 4: ch 5, sc in ch 3 loop, ch 3, sc in next ch 3 loop, ch 2, dc in last sc
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until it's as long as you want for what your making.
Last row: Ch 1 to turn, sc in dc, ch 2, sc in ch 3 loop, ch 3, sc in 3rd ch on ch 5 from previous row
Break off and weave in ends.
Switch to contrast color, and sc across bottom. If you need a loop for a clasp, button, or elastic, this would be the time to add it. For the elastic on my head band, I used 2 sc, ch 3, 2 sc to make the 7 stitches. 2 more sc in corner. Work the sides by ch 3, skip dc,sc in sc, repeat until you reach the end of the side, 3 sc in corner, sc across short edge, 2 more sc in corner, repeat the ch 3, sc up the other side, 2 sc in last corner, sl st to join with first sc.
For my headband I made it 15 inches long and used a narrow elastic stitched into the holes I left in the ends to join it.
Then I sewed the flower to the band attaching it with 5/8th inch button. The button I used is a USSR brass button I got from American Science and Surplus.
My next post, I'll explain how I got the gorgeous patina on the bright brass button.
