Yes, I have had a bee in my bonnet as you can tell. :-)
The last few days I have ate, drank and slept flowers. But it's paid off. I was playing around this morning and came up with a rose pattern.
(I had looked online and although I saw some rose patterns I couldn't understand them, so I had to improvise)
Chain 20 (the smaller roses were made chaining 15. If you decide to make the smaller ones, you can make two roses out of one skein of floss. )
Ok, let's start again!
hdc in every chain link but start at the 3rd link from the needle.
At the end, chain 3 and turn.
2dc in hole right at base of chain, then 3dc, 1sl st in every top link from then on (going through both layers)
* just to clarify: you will have 3 dc and 1 sl st in every link.
Go all the way to the end and finish off.
It will look like a long corkscrew.
Now you just need to roll it up and sew the base. (so it doesn't unroll)
Add a bead or button.
Below are some ragdoll mums I made last night. Technically they're marigolds
(you can find the youtube video I went by in my tutorial section)
but I think they look more like Dahlias or Mums.
That'a my story and I'm sticking to it!
OK, I promise I won't bore you eternally with my crochet madness.
It's a faze. I WILL move on. lol
My closest friends will tell you this happens quite frequently. Just humor me.
Think of all the blog candy I can offer soon!! I can supply all of blogland with crochet flowers!
Yesterday I made over 50.
OK, maybe I shouldn't have admitted that...
