A perfect little Spring project! I’ve been looking and looking and trying to make sweet simple flowers. When I thought up this one I quickly made many of them and put them on my purse, a headband, a hat, a crocheted cat, leggings, hairclips… well.. everything in sight. Ok, not everything, but lots of stuff, especially for my new little girl and my big girl. Warning, you may find these flowers addictive! Here’s the pattern, also short and sweet and fun to make. Just about my speed right now as I like to devote a huge portion of my time to the above mentioned sweet girls and my sweet boy too.
You can use any yarn with a hook the right size for the yarn. You can also use 2 or 3 strands of a yarn, or different colored yarns, and a large hook to get a big flower. They look great with a little one layered over a big one too.
puff stitch= *yo, insert hook into stitch (or loop in this case) yo, pull up* repeat 4 times in same stitch/loop, yo, pull through all 9 loops on hook, yo, pull through loop
loop= magic loop or amigurumi loop. You can find a tutorial for “magic loop” on youtube which is my preference. If you really can’t get it you can ch 2 then work these stitches in the first ch.
In a loop, *ch 2, puff stitch, ch 2, sl st back into loop* repeat 5 times, tighten the loop, finish off
And there you have it, my shortest pattern ever!
