This large photo prop crochet flower is inspired by the pineapple stitch. I wanted to create a free pattern to embellish beautiful little girls during a photo shoot. While awake or asleep, this crochet flower is perfect for all little angels.
Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart With Love)
5 mm crochet hook
*Tip* When you make your chain, start it off leaving a long tail… you will use this tail at the very end to secure the flower after winding/twisting it up.
Step 1: CH 30, turn, skip 5 CH, SC into next 3 CH.** CH 4, SC into next 3 CH. Repeat from ** 6 more times. CH 4, slip stitch into last CH.
Step 2: Turn, Slip stitch into CH space. CH 3, 6 TRE into CH space. **CH 2, skip one SC, SC into next SC, Skip SC, CH 2, 7 TRE into next CH space. Repeat from ** across 7 more times.
Step 3: Turn, CH 1, SC into same stitch,** CH 2, SC into next stitch, repeat from ** 5 more times.
Step 4: Turn, SC into CH space, **CH 2, SC into next CH space, repeat from ** 4 more times.
Step 5: Turn, SC into CH space, **CH 2, SC into next CH space, repeat from ** 3 more times.
Step 6: Turn, SC into CH space, **CH 2, SC into next CH space, repeat from ** 2 more times.
Step 7: Turn, SC into CH space, **CH 2, SC into next CH space, repeat from ** 1 more time.
Step 8: Turn, SC into CH space, CH 2, SC into next CH space. Turn, SC into CH space. Finish off
Step 9: Attach yarn yarn to the next TRE from step 2.
Repeat steps 3-9 across. Weave in all of your ends. I wrapped the piece around a finger to get the correct distance between the pedals. Then I used the very first yarn tail and a yarn needle to secure the flower together and attach a button to the center.
