Free Flower Pattern

Flowers are always fun to crochet! I love experimenting with different color combinations and petal shapes whenever I have a moment to just chtocet whatever I feel like. I made this flower this morning and thought I'd share!

Materials :Any yarn and hook appropriate for yarn. I used worsted weight yarn and a size H hook.

Rnd1:Ch4, join with sl st to make a loop.
Rnd2:*Sc into loop, ch5* repeat from *to * 4 more times. Join with sl st to first sc. Ch1(5sc) 
Petals: Work into ch5 space *1sc, ch1, 1hdc, ch1,1dc, ch1,1hdc, ch1,1sc* repeat from *to* in every ch5 space around. Join with sl st to first sc. Ch1. 
Turn flower over.

This is the front of your flower and what it should look like after the petals are finished and you have joined with a slip stitch
Turn Flower over. This is the back of the Flower.
Sl st around connecting sc as shown in the picture below. 
Ch8 (counts as 1sc+ch6) *sc into next connecting sc, ch6* repeat from *to* around join with sl st to 2nd ch on ch8. Ch1 

Slip Stitch around this single crochet
ch8 and sc around next sc 

Turn flower back over so front is facing you. 

Change colors if desired. 
Petals: into Ch6 space *1sc, ch1, 1hdc, ch1, 2dc, ch1, 1hdc, ch1, 1sc* repeat from *to* around. Join with sl st to first sc. 
Weave in ends

Have fun! This would make a great button-on flower if you have a project you would like to button a flower onto!
