Chiq Variation on Jenni's flower

Hello everyone!!!
My friend Jenni Is working on her first crochet pattern which a cute sat hat that starts with a flower in the middle!

I made a variation of the flower she used and I will be sticking it all over my county fair project.


The pink Is mine and the White is hers! There are very many versions of flowers available online!!


Supplies  Yarn any kind
Hook  Whatever size the yarn calls for


I used a super soft wool in Cotton Candy from Eco Yarn ( an AMAZING etsy shop that recycles yarn from thrift store sweaters!)  and a size G crochet hook!



Start with a Magic circle and chain 2 ( count as your step un and not a DC)



Work 12 DC in to the Magic Circle, join,
We chain4 at the beg. because the 1 chain counts as your sc

chain 4 skip on stitch, sc in the next, *chain 3 skip one stitch * repeat   * YOu should have 6 chain spaces.
This is what half of a petal looks like. You will need to make the stitches fit.

do the following in each chain space ( total of 6 times) "sc, hdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc, sc* slip stitch the 6th one to the first one

Have you thought about Writing out your own patterns? I say go for it but remember it is a process like writing a paper and you may need to revise it several times before it is just right!! Need any help comment bleow, email me or find crochet chiq the fan page on facebook :)

finger crochet cowl

Hey everyone! I took a ball of Lionbrand Heartland Thick and Quick with me to an Angel baseball game. I always bring yarn because while going to games is fun the boys in my life enjoy them far more than I do! This project to only took me 1/2 of an inning to create so it you want something quick this is your project.


I only used 1/2 of the ball but you can get an extreme one by using the whole ball... it would be perfect for cooler weather.

I started by making a slip knot with my fingers.
Then I wrapped the yarn around my index finger and pulled through so that I was chaining with my fingers. See photos below. After you have finger crocheted the length you want, I did 1/2 the ball knot the end, wrap around your neck to the desired length and use about 6 inches to wrap around all the strands like the photos show. I weaved in my ends or you can use fabric glue to make it super secure. Any 5 ply or 6 ply yarn can be used to make this.I have a kids tutorial for finger crochet here
