Some time ago I found a very nice picot crochet flower on SkaMama’s blog. I liked the idea very much. After some time I had several flowers finished. But I did not like the result. I used linen yarn for these flowers. The picot looked like very ugly so I decided to modify the pattern a little bit. I simply removed the picot and crocheted simple double layer flower. The result amazed me. It can be seen in the picture. Further in the blog post I share the pattern I used for crocheting these flower. I suggest you trying it.
Yarn: you will need few meters of yarn. Choose two colors of yarn you like. I used linen yarn. You can choose cotton, wool, acrylic yarn or other type you have. Color A will be used for the center of a flower, and color B will be the second layer petals.
Hook: choose the hook that fits your yarn. I used 1.25 mm hook for my flowers. The hook type depends on your yarn width. The thicker the yarn is the bigger hook you will need.
Also you will need tapestry needle to finish the flower.
Ch – chain stitch,
Sl st – slip stitch,
Sc – single crochet,
Dc – double crochet
Start with color A.
ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring;
ch 1, sc in a ring, * ch 4, sc in a ring *, repeat from * to * 3 more times, ch 3, join with the sl st. After this you should have 5 chain 3 loops.
* sc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, sc*, repeat from * to * 4 more times, join with a sl st. Fasten off (A). After this step you will have simple 5 petals flower.
Continue with color B.
Push one of the petals forward and start working behind the petals with color B. Insert the hook through the chain 3 space that was formed with color A. Go out through the foundation ring and draw up a loop. Ch1, sc in the same space, * ch 4, sc into the foundation ring through chain 3 space of the next petal*, repeat from * to * around 3 more times, ch 4, join with a sl st. After this you will have 5 chain 4 loops that are behind the color A petals.
*sc, hdc, 5 dc, hdc, sc*, repeat from * to * 4 more times, join with a sl st. Fasten off color B and finish the flower. Use tapestry needle to hide the yarn ends.
