I love spring! My Dahlias are sprouting out of the ground. They are my favorite flower to cut and keep inside the house. But since they are not flowering yet I decided to crochet one and share the pattern with all my friends. 🙂
I used 4.75 MM hook and Red Heart yarn
Use a variety of yarn and hooks for different looks 🙂
CH – Chain
SC- Single crochet
HDC – Half double crochet
DC- Double Crochet
TRE- Treble crochet|
DTR – Double Treble crochet
Round 1: 10 HDC inside Magic circle , slip stitch into first HDC
Round 2: CH 1, SC in each back loop around and connect to CH 1.
change colors (connected to back loop only)
(In back loop only) *CH 4, DTR in same stitch, CH 4, slip stitch in same stitch, slip stitch in next stitch. Repeat from * around for 10 pedals. Once you reach your first pedal slip stitch into the front loop.
(In front loop only) *CH 3, Treble crochet in same stitch, CH 3, slip stitch in same stitch, slip stitch in next stitch. Repeat from * around for 10 pedals. Once you reach your first pedal of that row, slip stitch into the front loops of the first round.
(In front loop only) *CH 2, DC in same stitch, CH 2, slip stitch in same stitch, slip stitch in next stitch. Repeat from * around for 10 pedals. Slip stitch in the first loop with your first pedal of that row. Finish off.
I’ve just finished the hat, using Carob Simply Soft and Lion Brand Ice Cream with an H (5.00mm) hook. Enlarging by one stitch at beginning. I’ll post a picture on Facebook tomorrow.
On the flower, I hate to mention, but since I’m an English teacher and have a thing about spelling and word usage…. A pedal is on a bicycle. A petal is on a flower! Lol! Sorry. I couldn’t help myself.

I am going to use crochet thread. What is the gauge, since I would have to adjust the pattern. It”s the hat I am going to make in crochet thread.
