The free Double Layered Picot Flower #2 pattern is very easy and works up quickly. The instructions below are for the brown flower. The red flower as you can see in the photos has pretty much the same petals, but its center is different. The instructions for the red flower can be found here.
Create your own flowers using your favorite colors and attach them on hats, bags, pillows, jackets and many more. Experiment with different yarn weights and hook sizes for larger or smaller Double Layered Picot Flowers. Alternatively embellish the center of the flower with a cute big bead or a button.
Both flowers, pink and brown, are crocheted with six strand embroidery floss and a 2 mm crochet hook and they measure 6,5 cm (2,5 inches) in diameter.
Besides your chosen thread and crochet hook, you will also need a needle to weave in loose ends and a pair of scissors.
With the color for the center make a magic ring.
