Fairytale Series – Flowers

IMG_1780_1848

The last pattern in my fairytale series is the cute little flowers. If you missed the first post for this series, Stanley the Unicorn,  the second one for Philip the Dragon,  or the third one for Poppy the Fairy, go check them out.

If you want a pattern that you can save on your computer and easily print, this pattern is available in my Ravelry shop for only $1.00. Or you can get my whole Fairytale Series for only $5.00. I love printing patterns and saving them in a binder to keep track of the ones I’ve done and the ones I still plan to do.

*SIDE NOTE* I have horrible lighting in my house, so I don’t usually take pictures of my work “in progress.” There were a few pieces of each of these patterns, though, that I knew would benefit from in progress pictures. So I took some in my bedroom with my cell phone, using the terrible lighting that I have in there. They aren’t the best pictures, but I figured that they’re better than nothing.

These flowers are really easy and really cute. They would be great for many different project. You could even make stems for them and put them in a vase or flower pot.

Abbreviations:

ch: chain

sc: single crochet

sl st: slip stitch

inc: increase (2 single crochets in one loop)

dec: decrease (pull yarn through loop, pull yarn through second loop, yarn over and pull through all loops)

Materials needed (with affiliate links):

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn. You can use pretty much any colors for these flowers. I used linen for the base, then used lemon and periwinkle for the petals.

I (5.25mm) crochet hook

15mm safety eyes

Yarn needle

Poly-fil 

This pattern is worked “in-the-round”, and stitches are worked through both loops unless otherwise noted. 

Base

With linen, ch 3. Sl st to first ch to create circle. (Instead, you can perform the “magic circle” if you’d like.)

Row 1: ch 1, 10 sc inside of circle. (10 stitches)

Row 2: *Inc in first stitch, sc in next stitch, repeat from * around. (15 stitches)

Row 3: *Inc in first stitch, sc in next 2 stitches, repeat from * around. (20 stitches)

Row 4: *Inc in first stitch, sc in next 3 stitches, repeat from * around. (25 stitches)

Stop at this point and position your eyes. Be sure you have them where you want them before putting the backs on. Stuff with poly-fil. Continue to stuff as you finish the last rows.

In row 10 of the base, where you crocheted in the front loops only, you should have a line around the base.

This shows you where to sew the petals on. Using your yarn needle and yarn to match the petals, sew them around.

Using black embroidery thread or yarn, you can sew on a mouth, or you could leave them without a mouth if you want to.
