Yarn: Light Fingering in pink (A) and green (B), crochet hook size B 2.5mm

Final Size: 5.2 ince. Final size if using worsted yarn approx 6 inc.

Dificulty: Easy. All you do is just dc3tog to create the petals and crochet in right angle wave move making sure there are 6 petals in each of the flower.

Note: beginning dc3tog (ch3 plus Dc2tog counts as Dc3tog): YO and pull through all three loops, chain 1 (First Dc3tog complete).

dc3tog (double crochet 3 stitches together: Yarn over (YO) hook, insert hook in stitch (st), pull up a loop (lp), 3 lps on hook. YO hook, pull through 2 lps. YO hook insert in next st, pull up a lp, 4 lps on hook. YO, pull through 2 lps, 3 lps on hook. YO, insert hook in next st. YO, pull up a lp, 5 lps on hook. YO, draw through 2 lps, 4 lps left on hook. YO draw through all 4 lps left on hook, chain 1.

Beginning tr3tog: (ch4 plus tr2tog)

tr3tog: Treble crochet 3 together—Yarn over twice, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop (4 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice (2 loops on hook); *yarn over twice, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice; repeat from * once more; yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook.

Picot (pc): ch3, sl st into 3rd ch from hook.

Clusters and petals are mentioned througout the pattern, they are just the same thing. I put number of cluster in bracket after each cluster made for easy counting.

Weave in the ends when finished.

With yarn A, ch5, join with slip st to form a ring.

R1. Beginning dc3tog into the ring (1), dc3tog on top of the previous cluster (2). Dc3tog back into the ring to form a triangle of petals (3). Dc3tog on top of the third clusterl (4) Continue until a total of 6 petals and 6 clusters in between is formed into the ring. Join with sl st.

R2. Beginning dc3tog (1), dc3tog on top of the previous cluster (2). Dc3tog back into the same ch sp as the first cluster (3). Dc3tog on top of the previous cluster (4), dc3tog back into the 1st cluster. Continue making the clusters till the circle is complete. There are 18 petals and 12 clusters in between.

R3. Beginning dc3tog (1), dc3tog on top of the previous cluster (2), dc3tog back into the same ch sp as the first cluster (3), dc3tog on top of the previous cluster (4), dc3tog back into the 1st cluster(5), skip the next cluster, dc3tog into the next ch sp (6), dc3tog on top previous cluster (7), dc3tog back into the same ch sp as cl 6. Continue making the clusters till the circle is complete. There are 6×3+6×2=30 peteals and 20 clusters in between.

R4. Join yarn B in any of the cluster, begtr3tog, pc, tr3tog in the same ch sp, *(ch5, tr3tog in next ch sp between clusters, pc, tr3tog in the same ch sp.) *repeat until the circle complete, join with sl st, total 20 tr3tog clusters, fasten off.
