Absolutely love this pattern! The possibilities seem endless.
As usual, I did mine a little differently than the original. I used the magic circle technique and made what Teresa calls Row 1 directly onto my ring. That did require a bit of an adjustment – I had to make the chains on the back of the flower only 3 stitches long. Irregardless of how I got there, I think my flower came out great!
The hardest part is making sure that the long half double crochets are the same length. Think I need a bit more practice at that – never made that stitch before. It has my wheels spinning at how I can use it for other things.
Teresa’s instructions are quite clear and easy to follow. If you need a bit of extra help, she’s even made a video tutorial for this free crochet flower pattern! Be sure to check out her blog, Crochet Mania, where you can find this cool crochet flower pattern and a bunch of other cool stuff.
