Chiq Simple Flower

In honor of Mother's day I made a cute flower and stem that is easily adaptiable for many uses including, a bookmark, a head band, decoration on a garmet and many other things!
What will you use this flower for? Comment below and send photos to CrochetChiq@gmail.com

First lets start with the flower


Use whatever yarn you like and the smallest hook you can use so your stitches are tight. I used 4 ply ( loops and thread impeccable in cherry) with a size F hook

make a magic circle

round 1 ~ chain 5 ( counts as dc and ch 2) *dc, ch2* repeat for a total of 5 spokes ( dc) separated by ch2 spaces. sl into 3rd ch of the first st

round 2 ~ ch1 sl st into the ch2 space. 5 dc into next dc ( it will be tight and may feel wrong at first) repeat until back at the begining. sl in chain 2 space, 5dc in each dc.

That is our easy 2 round flower!! are you ready for the stem?


I used a size F hook and left over bernat yarn
chain 42
for a long stem
Chain 30
for a shorter one

Ch 4 insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, yarn over and draw up the loop , contiune doing this in the next chain until you have 4 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all the loops on your hook. skip the next 2 chains and repeat.

try variations of this pattern play with how many you skip and how many loops you collect on you hook before yarning over.

Try blocking it to your perfect shape. also mixing elmers glue and water in a 50/50 mixture will make it very stiff!
