Faux Peacock Feather

I made this crochet piece a while back and forgot about it till I used one of my crochet flowers for one of my cards. This is again from the book by Carol Meldrum called Easy Beaded Crochet. I have definitely not reached the stage where I can make my own designs so till then…..follow instructions! 🙂

This is the best picture I could take. Otherwise, it comes out too fuzzy so please bear with me 🙂 I have not finished the piece and have left tails as I have not yet decided what to do with it. Have not quite envisioned a use for it. Any suggestions??

Poppy Crochet Flower

Actually, maybe it is not a poppy at all! But could not toggle my brain to think of any other flower right now! If it looks like anything else, do correct me! 🙂 Again a fuzzy picture….sorry!

This is a two color flower.

Ch 5, sl st to make a ring

Row 1 – ch 1, 12 dc in ring, sl st to ch, change color

Row 2 – ch 1, dc in same st, work 6 clusters (3 tr each + 1 ch on top to seal)

Row 3 – 10 tr on top of each cluster with 1 tr between each petal. Option to change color again.

Row 4 – ch 1, dc in all stitches. I used the same green color.

Again, pattern can be found on crochet pattern central and lots more crochet patterns!

Simple Crochet Flower

This is a very simple basic crochet flower that can go on cards, cushions, as neck pieces, etc. The picture is quite a fuzzy one as my camera would not do a better job! Sorry about that but you can trace this to the site crochet flowers and there are many many more exciting ones to choose from! 🙂

This is a single color pattern. You can make it two color also if you so desire 🙂

Ch 5, sl st to make a ring

Row 1 – ch 3, 15 tr

Row 2 – ch 4, 1 tr, ch 1, 1 tr, around the 15 tr to have ch 15, tr 15 in the end

Row 3 – dc, *(1 tr, 2 dtr, 1 tr) in ch sp, dc in next ch sp, continue from * till end. Fasten off.

Easy peasy! 🙂
