I've had tons of requests for the pattern to this wide-center, seven-petal flower I crocheted for my bookmark post. I am really bad about writing down patterns for things--I usually just play around with my yarn and different sized hooks until I make something I like. So I finally had a chance to go back and figure out exactly what I did (thanks for your patience!). Luckily it's a really easy flower. It's similar to my five-petal pattern, so if you've tried the pattern in my How to Crochet A Flower video, you can do this one, too.
Seven-Petal Crochet Flower Pattern
Rnd 1: Ch 3, sl st to beg chain to form a ring.
Rnd 2: Ch 2 (counts as first dc), 6 dc in ring, sl st to top of first dc. (7 dc)
Rnd 3: Ch 2 (counts as first dc), 1 dc in same st, 2 dc in each of next 6 sts. Sl st to top of ch 2. (14 dc)
Rnd 4: Change thread color if desired. *Ch 2, 3dc in next st, ch 2, sl st in next st* across. Fasten off.
See--easy peasy! I like using a #10 crochet thread or embroidery floss for these little flowers, and a size 4/2.00mm hook. They're perfect for cards and scrapbook pages. But they can be done with any weight yarn and any size hook.
To add another petal, like in the eight-petaled flower below, simply add an addition dc in round 1. That will give you 8 dc, which will give you 16 dc on the next round, which is enough for 8 petals. E-mail me if you have questions!
