For this crochet flower pattern you can just use a hook to suit the yarn you choose. It also depends how 'open' you want the flower to look. I wanted a more 'filled in' look. For a more lacy and delicate - use a finer yarn or thread.

It is all worked from the same side - no need to turn it over after each row. I just use the term 'turning chain' as it is widely recognized.

  1. Chain 4 and join with slip stitch to form a ring.
  2. Chain 1, work 9 single crochets around ring, join with slip stitch to turning chain.
  3. Chain 1, double crochet & single crochet in next stitch, *single crochet in next stitch, (single crochet, double crochet, single crochet in next stitch), repeat from * 3 more times ending with single crochet in next stitch. Join with slip stitch to starting chain and slip stitch to top of first double crochet.
  4. Chain 2, 2 double crochet in same stitch (top of double crochet of previous round), *chain 2, skip 1 stitch, single crochet into next stitch, chain 2, skip 1 stitch, 5 double crochet into next stitch, repeat from *3 more times ending with chain 2, skip 1 stitch, single crochet into next stitch, chain 2, skip 1 stitch, work 2 double crochets into same stitch where this round started and join to turning chain with slip stitch.
  5. Chain 2, 2 double crochet into same stitch (middle stitch of 5 double crochets), *chain 1, skip 1 stitch, 1 double crochet into next stitch, chain 2, skip 1 stitch, single crochet into next stitch (single crochet of previous round), chain 2, skip 1 stitch, double crochet into next stitch, chain 1, skip one stitch, double crochet in the next stitch, chain 1, skip 1 stitch, 3 double crochet into next stitch, repeat from * 3 more times ending with chain 1, skip 1 stitch, double crochet into next stitch, chain 2, skip 1 stitch, single crochet into next stitch, chain 2, skip 1 stitch, double crochet into next stitch, chain 1, skip 1 stitch, double crochet in the next stitch, chain 1, join to turning chain with slip stitch. Finish off.
