Easy Flowers

I have a doctor’s appointment in the morning and a great new blouse I want to wear – but no shoes that will match the outfit in any way.  No time to shop, but I do have a lovely yarn just the same color.  My favorite shoes happen to have 4 holes in the toes, so they are perfect to run a piece of yarn through a crochet flower and tie on.

They couldn’t be easier to make.

For the center, wrap yarn around your finger 15 times.  Carefully slip it off, and sc into the center 24 times.  Join with ss to beginning sc.  Turn it over, so the back is now the front.

Round 1: ch 4 [this is one sc and 3 chs], (sc, ch3, sk 2 stitches) 7 times, join to 1st ch

Round 2: In ch 3 sp: hdc, dc, hdc, ss into sc) 7 times, in last ch 3 sp: hdc, dc, hdc, join with ss to beginning ss.

Round 3: Working in the back, around the sc posts of round 1, sc into back post, ch 5, (sc around back post, ch5,) 7 times, join to 1st sc.

Round 4: [I changed color here) In ch 5 sp: hdc, 3 dc, hdc, ss into sc) 7 times, in last ch 5 sp: hdc, 3dc, hdc, join with ss to beginning sc.

Round 5: Working in the back, around the sc posts of round 1, sc into back post, ch 7, (sc around back post, ch7) 7 times, join to 1st sc.

Round 6: [I changed back to 1st color here] In ch 7 sp: sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc,sc, ss into sc) 7 times, in last ch 7 sp: sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc,sc, join with ss to beginning sc.  Finish off.
