{ Three Layer Flower Pattern }

Threelayerflowerpattern


 

Materials:

  • Any size hook to go with the yarn you choose. I am using a 5mm for this flower
  • Yarn of your choice (I am using my favorite, Lion Brand Cotton-Ease)
  • Tapestry needle to weave in your ends

*Full pattern written out at the bottom



First, pick your yarn and hook size. Any yarn will work for this pattern. You can even use thicker or bulky weight yarn. The size yarn and hook you use will decide how big your flower will be. I usually use a worsted weight then adjust my hook size to make my flowers bigger or smaller.

So start, depending on what you are using your flower for, leave an 8-10 inch tail. This can be used to sew on your flower to your project.

Form a magic ring and do 5 sc into the ring. Tighten ring to get rid of the hole

Slip stitch to beginning (first sc) and ch 1

Time to make your first petal!

You will work a petal in each sc from the previous round, including the slip stitch. Each petal will be *Ch1, 3dc, ch1, sl st* all into the same stitch. Sc into next stitch.*

IMG_8097 edit IMG_8099 edit

Repeat this all the way around until you have 6 petals. Make sure your last petal is going into the sl st from the beginning so you get 6 petals

If you like this tiny flower you have made, you can always stop here! I say we keep going to make it even better.

Next, we need to make a place to put our next layer of petals. To do this, ch 3.

Then turn your flower down so the back is showing. You will pull the ch3 behind your first petal. Attach it into the loop furthest from your hook behind the first petal. Ch 3

See picture

Continue this all the way around behind each petal until you have 6 ch 3 spaces. Slip stitch into beginning chain

Time to make our next set of petals!

First, sc into the first ch 3 space

IMG_8116 edit

To make petal *ch1, 4dc, ch1, sl st* all into the ch 3 space. Sc into next ch 3 space.* Continue this all the way around until you have 6 petals

IMG_8119 edit

IMG_8121 edit

Again, feel free to stop but I say we go one more round.

Ch 4 and turn flower down so you are working on the back of your flower again. Connecting to the loop furthest away from your hook on the back of the first petal. Ch 4

Do this all the way around until you have 6 ch 4 spaces. Slip stitch to beginning chain

IMG_8122 edit

IMG_8123 edit

Sc into first ch 4 space and start petal. *ch1, 5dc, ch1, sl st* and sc into next ch 4 space.* Continue all the way around until you have 6 petals

IMG_8126 edit

Your done!

 

 IMG_8127 edit

Now just turn your flower over and sl st into any free loop and fasten off.

IMG_8128 edit

Pretty cool!

I use these for so many of my projects. I even make them in bulky yarn, which are really pretty. You could add a button to the middle, make each layer a different color, add to hats, make hair flips, whatever you want. Go ahead and get creative. I hope you have fun!
