How to Read Crochet Charts: The Peacock Flower

 
 
 


 Searching the Pinterest for an interesting free crochet chart to be translated into a written pattern I came across this lovely flower, which due to the color combination I chose - it's called 'The Peacock Flower".

It works very fast and I turned it into a brooch. Details follow below:

The Peacock Flower pattern

With color A, chain 5 (not 6 as the chart shows) and join to make a ring.
Round 1: ch6 and in the first st make 2 dtr, ch6 and sl st in the same st. Repeat this pattern for the whole round.

Round 2: Insert color B in between two petals and ch 5. In the chain below, make 1 hdc, on the 1st dtr make 1 dc and tr chain 2, make 1tr and 1 dc on the dtr st below, hdc1 in the chain, ch 5 and sl st between the petals. Repeat this pattern for the other 4 petals.

Round 3: sc5 in the chain below, in the next st make 2dc, next make 1 dc and 1 tr, on the chain below make 2 dtr, ch2, make another 2dtr in the same chain (below), make 1dtr and 1dc in the next st, then 2dc in the next. To finish the petal pattern, sc 5 in the chain, sl st and repeat pattern for the other 4 petals.




 
 
I would definitely make this flower again, but I will make some changes next time. Hope you enjoyed this!

That is such a pretty pattern. Your crocheters are so talented making art out of nothing but yarn. Thanks for giving us lots of sweet inspiration. Pinning.
