Flat Flower Tutorial

Hi, hope everyones well? 🙂
Thought i would share with you this super cute flat flower pattern. I wanted some pretty flower garlands, to either sell or decorate my summer stall with. Or even just to liven my house up a little.
This pattern came from an old book, that i picked up in a charity shop, it was in us terms, so i have translated it to uk as below.

CH – chain stitch
SS – slip stitch
DC- double crochet
TR – treble crochet

Start: Chain 6, Join with a SS to form ring.

Round 1: Chain 2, then do 23 TR in the ring, finish round with a SS into the 2nd chain stitch of the beginning chain. (24 TR’s)

It may be a struggle fitting all the TR’s in, but just keep pushing them back, and they will fit, I promise!

Round 2: Chain 4, 1 TR in the closing SS of the previous row; Chain 1. Skip 2 st, *1 TR, CH 2, 1 TR; CH 1.* Repeat 7x. Close round with a SS in 2nd ch (of 4) of the start.

Round 3: Chain 2, 1 TR, CH 2, 2 TR under the chain 2 space of the previous round; 1 DC under the CH 1. *2 TR, CH 2, 2 TR as before; 1 DC as before*. Repeat 7x. Close round with a SS in 2nd ch (of 2) of the start.

Round 4: Under the chain 2 space of the previous round, 3 TR, CH 1, 3 TR. Then 1 DC to the left and right of the DC of the previous round. Repeat 8x and close with a SS in the first st of the round. Bind off.

Chain 6, Join with a SS to form ring. Chain 2.
