Hofri's Crochet Flower
Don't know what to do with all those leftover yarns? Make this cute flower motif! Attach it to a key ring with chain and you have a sweet key chain. Connect it to a couple of fish hooks and you have a pretty drop earrings. Glue it to a magnet and you have an adorable refrigerator magnet. The options are infinite! Although this is done in plarn (plastic yarn), feel free to use other yarns. If you want to make plarn go to this site for a tutorial:
How to Make it
-use plastic that is a little stiff if you want to make the flower firm
-use soft plastic if you want the flower to have a delicate look
-cut into 1/8-inch strips
Stiff plarn - No. 5 steel hook
Soft plastic - No. 7 steel hook
Tapestry needles for weaving ends (optional)
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
tr = treble crochet
in = inches
Make your first five chains slightly loose to make it easier to do multiple stitches in them. If not, the multiple stitches in a chain will cover the next chain making it difficult to make the rest of the stitches.
Ch 16, sc on 2nd ch from hook, 9 sc. You now have 10 sc.
On the next ch, [1 sc, 1dc, 1tr, 1dc, 1sc]. Repeat on the remaining 4 chains. Break off leaving about 3 in of yarn. These stitches serve as your five petals. You should now have something that looks like the photo below.
Make a coil to form the flower. Weave the ends of the yarn using a hook or tapestry needle to hold the coil in place.
