Another Flower Pattern (6 petals)

daisy pattner pin

Here’s another flower I created this weekend. I love the larger center, lack of gaps, and ease of this double-layer daisy.
For those of you who are scared of new stitches, there’s no back post single crochet!
Grab the following items and give it a try:
Small amounts of worsted weight yarn, 2 colors (I used Sugar ‘n’ Cream Robin’s Egg Blue and Tangerine)
F crochet hook (unless you crochet loosely, then I’d suggest using a G hook)
Yarn needles
Something to embellish
Notes: BLO means work in the back loop of the stitch only. FLO means to work in the front loop.
Ready?
Ch 2.
Round 1: 6 SC in the first chain. Don’t slip stitch to join.
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around (12 in all). Sl st in BLO of the next stitch.
Round 3: We’re creating the back row of petals first. *Ch 3, skip 1, sc in BLO of next stitch.* Five times. Ch 3, sl st in first ch 3 space to join.  You should now have 6 ch 3 spaces.
Round 4: Ch 2, 5 dc, ch 2, sl st. Work *Sl st , ch 2, 5 dc, ch 2, sl st* in each of the remaining ch 3 spaces. You should have 6 petals. Cut yarn.
not much to look at yet
Round 5: Join your second color yarn in any of the front loops that you left unworked. *ch 2, skip 1, sc in FLO of next stitch* five times. Ch 2, sl st in the first ch 2 space to join.

Round 6: Ch 2, 4 dc, ch 2, sl st. Work *Sl st , ch 2, 4 dc, ch 2, sl st* in each of the remaining ch 3 spaces. You should now have 6 petals in front of your original row of petals.
I attached my finished flower to a simple, double-stranded headband using a small felt circle and hot glue.  
My finished product looks like this.  I love how the ribbon closure makes these headbands adjustable.  This headband will fit my 1 year old or a 6 year old.  This headband will be available in the Daisy Cottage Designs shop when we reopen!

  6. Thanks for sharing. I will pass this pattern on because it is sooo versatile.

  7. How do you "join" the second color?

  8. Kelliejo, I join with a slip stitch in one of the front loops that has been left unworked.

  9. I am new to this. What size yarn do you use?<br />Thanks

  10. hi – how do you attach the ribbon to the ends to tie closure. How long do you make the braided band? Thanks!!

  11. Alexis: I use a 100% cotton worsted weight yarn. <br /><br />Brenda: I use hot glue to attach a ribbon to the ends, then I wrap a small piece of ribbon around to make it look more finished. <br /><br />I don&#39;t know an exact measurement, but I would make it about an inch smaller than the smallest head you want it to fit, if that makes sense. Make the ribbon pretty long on each side so it&#

  12. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. Love how it looks and love how easy and fast it was to make!

  13. Hi! When you say &quot;Don&#39;t Slip stitch to join&quot; then do we just do a regular SC? Also, unless it says specifically to go under the BLO or FLO, I assume that means we are to go under both? Thanks! Love this pattern!

  14. OMG!

  17. Hi again Lauren, I tried to send you an email a while back about this but can you (or anyone else here) give a tip or steps on how to best join the other color? I&#39;ve tried it a few different ways but doesn&#39;t seem to be joining correctly. How do you do it?

  18. This is a lovely and easy pattern! Thanks so much for posting it.

  19. Just love your patterns. Definitely will keep an eye on your work. New follower.

  20. Thank you for this pattern!! I grab my yarn and needle and the first time I got it pretty close. Like Greg and Mimi from above post, I didn&#39;t know how to attach second color. I didn&#39;t do anything until the end. I just let the end hang loose until the end, but this wasn&#39;t a good idea. Next time maybe I should just tie it on somewhere.

  21. terrific very easy and effective changes look completely if you use different colours thank you so much i LOVE it only started doing crochet this Summer and still learning so finding something so easy is great<br />
