This small flower has a tie on each side so that it can be easily added to another item or can be used as a temporary accent.
Use yarn weight or thread size of your choice, with a hook size to correspond to the material being used. In the example shown, I used worsted weight yarn with a U.S. size H hook.
Abbreviations: ch = chain, chs = chains, dc = double crochet, ea = each, sc = single crochet, sl st = slip stitch, sp = space
How To Slip Stitch (sl st) = Insert hook in stitch, wrap yarn over hook, pull yarn through the stitch and through the loop on the hook, at the same time.
Chain 4. Join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: ch 1, sc in ring, (ch 3, sc in ring) 5 times, ch 3, sl st in first sc of this round. (This makes 6 chain loops altogether.)
Rnd 2: ch 20 for first tie, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sl st in ea of next 18 chs, sl st in sc at base of the ch-20 just made, sl st in next ch-3 sp, (sc, dc, sc, sl st) in same ch-3 sp, (sl st, sc, dc, sc, sl st) in ea of next 2 ch-3 spaces, sl st in next sc between ch-3 loops, ch 20 for second tie, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sl st in ea of next 18 chs, sl st back in same sc at base of the ch-20 just made, (sl st, sc, dc, sc, sl st) in ea of next 3 ch-3 spaces, sl st in sc at base of first ch-20 tie. End off. Weave in ends.
To attach the flower to a crocheted item, weave the ties through spaces in the item at the point where the flower will be attached, then bring each tie up through the center of the flower and tie the two chain ties together in a loose double knot.
