How to Crochet Your Own Flowers!



Crocheting flowers is fun, easy and quick!  It turns a pretty blanket into a unique piece.  You can get creative with flower placement and make your baby blanket distinct! Using neutral colors , traditional girl colors or even traditional boy colors and adding flowers you can turn any color combination into a baby blanket for a girl.




Here are the steps for a crocheted flower:


1.  Create a slip knot, chain 4, and slip stitch into first chain to form a ring.


2.  Chain 3 (this will count as your first double crochet), then 15 double crochet into the ring and join with a slip stitch in top of chain 3.




3.  Chain 1, single crochet in first stitch, 6 double crochet in next stitch ( this will complete the first petal).


4.  Skip the next stitch, single crochet in next stitch, 6 double crochet in next stitch ( that will make your second petal).


5.  Repeat #4 three more times for a five petal flower.




6.   Join with a slip stitch in the first single crochet and fasten off.
