You can choose any yarn you like to crochet this flower. Just to give you an idea of the size, with cotton thread size 10 and a 2 mm crochet hook, the flower is going to be about 4,5 cm (1,8 inches) in diameter.
You will also need a needle to weave in loose ends and a pair of scissors.
With first color make a magic ring (or ch 5 and sl st in first ch to form a ring).
- Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as hdc), 13 hdc in the ring, pull the thread end to tighten the ring and join with sl st in 2nd ch of first ch2.
- Round 2: (Ch 3, skip 1 hdc, sl st in next hdc) around. Fasten off.
- Round 3: Join second color with sl st in any ch-3 sp. * In ch-3 sp work (sc, ch 2, 3 tr, ch 1, 3 tr, ch 2, sc); repeat from * around. Join with sl st in first sc.
