I love knitting and crochet. It works as a great stress buster for me. I am very determined to make a perfect piece when ever I start but loose my determination mid way. Hmm…. I have to work on this. I am no master….just a curious learner, so kindly bear with me.
Sometimes I forget to take a snap shot and at times deviate from the original design. And I am in such a hurry when it comes to final touch or finishing. PS: Click the images for full view.Anyways, lets start the process.
(Ch -Chain, Sl St – Slip Stitch, sc- Single Stitch, hdc – Half Double Stitch, dc- Double Stitch, tc- Triple Stitch
Mateial 250 gms knitting yarn (Mine is Malwa knitting yarn shade 34)
Hook Number 5
Step 1: Chain 8, make a loop with sl st.
Step 2: sc 16, sl st when done
Step 3: ch 9, make a loop of it with a sc, 4 sc in next 2
Step 4: repeat this process and make six such loops
Step 5: When it completes, Go to 1st loop, and follow this pattern to make a petal shape
2 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, 3 tc, ch 3, 3 tc, 2 dc, 2 hdc and 2 sc. Then a sc after the loop ends
Step 6: Follow this process on all the six loops to make your 1st flower. Keep it aside. Start making the 2nd flower.
Repeat step 1-4. When on step 5, join the petal of 1st flower with the 2nd one by attaching their chains to each other
2 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, 3 tc, ch 3, attach the same ch of 1st with the 2nd flower, 3 tc, 2 dc, 2 hdc and 2 sc. Then a sc after the loop ends. Every flower will have its two petals attached to the other flower.
Now keep making the flower and attach it as per your requirement
I made 7 flowers in each row but I think even number will be better, so you can try 6 or 8 flowers in each row.
I made total 41 flowers, 35 for front and back and three each for each sleeve
Here is the end result
