Flower Friday – Layer flower

Hello everyone, so sorry I’ve been MIA for the last week.  I was just finishing up on a major project and it consumed most of my time.

Today I want to share another flower with you.  It is super easy to make.  You can make 2 or 3 layers or even just one.  I just lay them on top of each other and use them to embellish other items such as the flip flops in the photo above.  Summer will be here soon and it’s time to dress up those flip flops.  I hope you enjoy this project.

Flower: Use different size hooks for different sizes .  I used a size G hook.  The small flower in the center is worked separately and then sewn onto the 2 layer flower.

To begin: 2-layer flower G Hook (Medium weight yarn)

Chain 5, sl st into 1st ch
Round 2: ch 4, (3 ch  counts as 1dc), *sc into circle, ch 3*, rep from * to * 3 more times, ch 3, sc into 1st ch
Round 3: * sl st into the ch-3 space (to work petals inside these spaces), ch 3, 8 dc into ch-3 sp, ch 3, sc into same ch-3 space * repeat until you have completed all 5 petals, sc into 1st st.   (If you like the way this looks you can fasten off after this layer and you’re done).
Push petals to the front.
Ch 4: *ch 5, sc into next sc,* rep until you have worked all 5 petals. You will be creating ch-5 loops behind the first row of petals.
Ch 5: (change colors – optional) ch 4, [11 tbc in next ch-5 sp, ch 4, sc into same ch-5 sp], sl st into next ch-5 sp,* rep from * to * in each petal, ch 4, sl st into 1st st

Top Layer is made separately and sold on top :

Small 5 petal flower:   G hook

Ch 4, sl st into 1st ch to form circle
Round 2: *ch 3, 2dc (into circle) sc into circle* rep from * to * until you have worked 5 petals, sc, fasten off.

You can sew this small flower on top of your other 2 layer flower.

    I don’t understand what you mean in round 2 of the 2 layer flower when you write that 3 dc count as 1dc. How can 3dc count as 1dc. I find the instructions to be very confusing.

      the first 3 count as a dc, the 4th is the space between the 1st dc.. so if it was in another space it would be “dc, ch 1”
