You will need a few basic crochet stitches, but with a little practice you’ll get it! Written instructions for the crochet flower are also included below.

- Any size crochet hook (I used size “J”)
- Small amount of any yarn (~20 yards). I used Vanna’s Choice Solids.

Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc now and throughout), 11 more dc into circle (12 dc). Join to first dc with sl st.
Round 2: Ch 4 (counts as first sc + ch 3). *skip 1 st, sc in next st, ch 3* Repeat around until beginning. Join by making a sc in first ch-3 stitch. (Six, ch-3 spaces).
Round 3: Ch 3. 4 more dc in first ch-3 space. Sc. In next ch-3 space work *1 s, 5dc, 1sc* Repeat around until beginning. Join to first sc with sl st. (6 Petals)
