Introduction

Two bulky sunny flowers for the summer, can be used as applique, maybe even coaster. And there are leaves, too!

Materials List

I used a 2.70 mm hook and matching yarn to make it bulky.

Finished Size

Approximately 10 cm in diameter.

The Pattern

FIRST FLOWER
 
(the one above)
color A: orange
color B: yellow

R1:: with color A, 10 sc into a magic ring, close round with sl st (10 sc)
R2:: 2 sc in each sc around, close round with sl st (20 sc)
R3:: change to color B, *ch 6, sk 1 st, sl st in each of next 2 ch's, ch 4 (this is the petal)
now sk 1 st from petal base, and sl st to next sc on the orange circle* repeat 20 times, finish off

you'll have 20 petals in total. note: when you're done with the first 10 petals, just continue skipping stitches, they'll be occupied by previous petals anyhow - insert hook from the back of petals to get the same look as in the picture.



SECOND FLOWER

R1:: with color B: ch 20, join into ring with sl st
R2:: make 20 sl st around
R3:: change to color A, and working in back loops only, *ch 6, sk 1 st, sl st in each of next 2 ch's, ch 4 (this is the petal)
sk 1 st from petal base, and sl st to next sc on the orange circle* repeat 20 times, finish off

same notes apply as for the first flower.



LEAVES

·  ch 5, sk 3 sts, into 4th st: dc, 2 tr, ch 2, sk 1 st and sl st into next ch (picot top), tr, dc, ch3 and sl st twice (still into the 4th st)
·  turn, ch 8, sk 3 sts, into 4th st: dc, 2 tr, ch 2, sk 1 st and sl st into next ch (picot top), tr, dc, ch3 and sl st twice (still into the 4th st)
·  ch 8, sk 1 st, make 7 sl st into next 7 ch's, sl st into base of nearby leaf, ch 4, sk 3 sts, into 4th st: dc, 2 tr, ch 2, sk 1 st and sl st into next ch (picot top), tr, dc, ch3 and sl st twice (still into the 4th st), finish off.
