I do :-) ...
Hi there ,
sometimes, you wrote me, that when you would like to open some of my free pdf crochet patterns - that it says to you, that the file could not be opened... well - I think that it is something what I can not able to know why it is happening... so I made a big decission :-) and I decided to write my free patterns directly on the blog and to pdf's files too :-).. What do you think about it?
And what about to begin right now? With hmmm ...... Flower Applique ?
OK, let's begin :-) Make a cup of coffee or tea, take a hook 3 mm and some rest of 100% cotton, 5 ply weight yarn, maybe you find some buttons and I know, that you find some beads in your sewing's suitcase too :-)
I choosed the colors of chakras: 115 red, 281 orange, 208 yellow, 205 green, 165 light blue, 124 indigo blue, 113 violet and 114 cyklamen
Material I used: 100% cotton - Catania Solids by Schachenmayr SMC
Slip stitch (SlSt)
Single crochet (SC)
Half double crochet (HDC)Double crochet (DC)
Make 6 petals and the flower center following the instructions below.
Beginning: make 9 CH
Row 1: insert hook in second stitch from the hook and make 8 SC
Round 2: 1 CH, 4 SC, 1 HDC, 1 DC, 2 DC in one stitch, 5 DC in last stitch, work in the circle and continue 2 DC in one stitch, 1 DC, 1 HDC, 4 SC
Round 3: work in the circle and crochet continuously 1 CH, 9 SC, 5 times 2 SC in one stitch, 8 SC, 1 SlSt, end the work.
Center of the flower:
Use violet color yarn, work in the circle rounds
Beginning: 5 CH, join with 1 SlSt and make a ring
Round 1: 3 CH as a first DC, 10 DC, join first DC with 1 SlSt (11 DC)
Round 2: 3 CH as a first DC, 1 DC in next stitch, 2 DC in every other stitch from previous round, join first DC with 1 SlSt (20 DC), end the work.
Round 3: change the color, use bright pink color and crochet (2 SC in one stitch, 1 SC in next stitch) - repeat it 10 times totally, join first SC with 1 SlSt (30 SC), end the work.
Fasten off free threads and sew the petals to the centre of the flower. You will sew on backside of the flower. There is a backside view on the pictures below.
Then embellish the applique by the beads, spangles and button following your imagination.
Enjoy the pattern :-)
