For a little while I was worried I would have to do each big petal on these one at a time and the thought of weaving in all those ends stopped me from getting on with it. However, I have come up with a clever cheat and so you only have 4 little ends to deal with in this easy (I hope), pretty little Daffodil.
You could knock up a few and make the beginning of spring last forever.
The pattern is written in standard US crochet terms.
You will need
Very small amounts of Scheepjeswol Cotton 8 in Canary and Yellow
3mm crochet hook
Needle for weaving in ends
sc- single crochet
slst- slip stitch
st(s)- stitch (es)
hdc- haft double crochet
dc- double crochet
htr- half treble crochet
1: make 8sc into magic loop join with slst
2: ch1, 2sc in each st around join with slst
3: ch1, *2sc, sc* rep** around, join with slst
4: working in front loops only, hdc around, join with slst
You will get a bowl shape that should look like this
5: hdc in each st around, join with slst
6: *ch3, join in next st with slst, sl to next st* rep** around. Fasten off.
7: join in the back loop of any st of round 3, *ch2, dc in same st, dc2, [dc, ch2, slst]in same st, slst to next st* rep** around.
8: *ch3, [hdc, dc] in same st, 2tr, ch3, slst to 1st ch to create picot, 2tr, [dc, hdc] in same st, ch3, slst join to same st aslast part of petal, sl st to beginning of next petal* rep** around, fasten off, weave in ends and enjoy your work.
As ever if you find any issues please let me know as I am never sure how clear my instructions are.
