Flowers in 3D
After showing you my Mobile Flowers and Bees for the past few days and the instructions for the bees , even online, you want to finally publish the instructions for the flowers in 3D today. The flowers can be crocheted with or without a stem. The idea with the stems was actually only created because I did not want to hang the flowers colorless from the mobile.
But finally, have fun while crocheting the flowers in 3D.
What do we need?
Yarn in the colors of your choice for the flower and the stem
Corresponding crochet hook
The links to my materials can be found, as always at the end of the article.
Instructions flower center
The flower center is crocheted as a ball in spiral circles, so there are no slip stitches at the end of a round. If you want, make a lap marker in the beginning of each round.
4: Double every 3rd stitch (24)
5-7: One single crochet in each stitch (24)
8-9: One single crochet in every backloop of each stitch (24)
It’s true that these single crochet are now crocheting a line in the ball, so to speak. This makes it easier later to sew the petals evenly and centrally to the circle.
10: Crochet each 3rd and 4th stitch together in a single crochet (18)
Cut the thread and sew the hole in the middle.
The petal must be crocheted 5 times.
3: Double every 3rd stitch (24)
Depending on how long the stem of your flower should now be, you crochet more and more single crochet in a row. In my case it was at the end of 350 single crochet, but as I said, the length is yours. Then the plate is extended so that it extends over the yellow surface of the flower side. These extensions are crocheted like this:
It may be that you do not need 36 stitches, but can stop earlier. You have to decide that individually. At the end of the last lap you work a slip stitch and cut the thread a bit more generously. Now we sew the stem over the yellow surface of the flower.
