Crochet tutorial: Six -Petalled Flower

As I announced yesterday, here's the pattern for the simple six-petalled flower.

Chain 6 and join with a slip stitch to make ring.
Round 1: Make 6 sc in the ring. (Work tail in as you make the ring) Don't join. 
Round 2: *Chain 3 and make a sc in the sc stitch from the previous round*. Work from * to * until you finish all 6 sc from the previous round. You will have 6 petals.
Round 3: {Filling the petals} *Make 3 sc in the loop (petal) and 1 sl st.*. Work from * to *all the petals. When you come to the last one, after making the slip stitch, make another slip stitch in the rod between the last and the first petal, cut the yarn, thread a needle, tie a knot and weave the end.

By using different hooks and sizes of yarn you will get different sizes of flowers. The projects you can use these are numerous and I hope you enjoy making them.
