Anemone Bead Necklace - free pattern

I am always surprised when I am asked to make these simple flower and bead necklaces; but people seem to love them.  
If you are keen on such, here's the pattern for this lovely anemone and how I made this necklace.
Before we begin, please note that: The written  pattern in its entirety along with the photos are for personal use only. All property rights belong to Maya Kuzman of The Little Treasures.
Yarn and hook: sport yarn in 3 colors (Phil Cotton 3) for the anemone, green for the chain, and a 3 mm hook (UK11) (US 10/3). Left over yarn works great for this project.
Crochet stitches in American terminology: chain (ch), skip (sk), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc).
Other: wooden / plastic beads, tapestry needle. 

Measurements of anemone - 6x6 cm (2.36"x2.36")
Length of necklace - maker's choice.   
Anemone pattern:
Foundation and round 1: In color one, ch5 and join to make a ring. Sc7 in ring. (7)
Round 2: Ch3 and starting from 2nd st. from hook, hdc1 in next 2 sts. Sl st into next st., ch3, and starting from 2nd st. from hook, hdc1 in next 2 sts, then sl st in same st. Sl st into next st., and repeat this pattern. Work this pattern around for all 7 stitches. Cut yarn and work the tail.

Round 3:  In color two, ch4 and starting from 3rd st. from hook, dc1 in next 2 sts. Sl st at the back, between 2 petals from the previous round. Then repeat this pattern for the round. Cut yarn and work the tail.

Rounds 4 - 5:  In color three, ch5 and starting from 2nd st. from hook, hdc1 in next 4 sts. Sl st at the back of petal before it and repeat this pattern. This round will have more petals. Do not cut yarn, but when you are done with this round, make another round working the same pattern. When finished with round 5, cut yarn and work the tail. 
Chain (leaf and loop) pattern: 
For the leaf in green color, ch8 and starting from the 2nd st. from hook, sl st.1, hdc1, dc1 in next 2 sts., hdc1, sl st 1 in last 2 st. Ch1 and now work the other side of the leaf following the pattern in reverse: sl st 1 in next 2 sts., hdc1, dc1 in next 2 sts., hdc1, sl st1. Next chain 120 (you can chain as much as you want the chain / necklace to be long) and leave about a meter of yarn (mind that you do not pull the last stitch), cut yarn and insert tail through a tapestry needle.

Take the anemone and insert needle through the anemone's petals from the back, then string your assortments of beads. Once done, pick up your stitch, and sl st into 6th st from hook to make a loop. Insert leaf through loop to see if it fits nicely because that is actually the closure. If it is OK, sc6 inside that chain / loop, cut yarn and work the tail. If the loop is too small, add a couple of more stitches to that loop. And that is it!
I hope you like this. If something is ambiguous in the instructions, please ask in the comments.  Happy weekend!
