Welcome spring 😀
There’s no spring in Indonesia, but I love spring. Especially when sakura and poppies in bloom. So I’m officially welcoming spring by making an easy peasy and beginner-friendly Spring Flower Ornament. Let’s get started!
MATERIAL I USE:
- DK yarn/ lightweight yarn in 3 colors (peach, dusty blue, and soft gray).
- Crochet hook no. 4.
- Tapestry needle.
CROCHET STITCHES & ABBREVIATIONS (US TERMINOLOGY):
- ch (chain).
- ss (slip stitch).
- st (stitch).
- sts (stitches).
- sc (single crochet).
- MR (magic ring).
- inc (increase).
- R (round).
- X (times). Indicate numbers of time to repeat the pattern in parenthesis.
- [..] – Indicate the number of the stitches in each round.
When you already reached the last st, cut a long yarn end. Insert the yarn end into tapestry needle. (step 1) Skip the next st, insert the needle under the top st. (step 2) Pull it and inserting back to where the yarn comes. Pull the needle gently so the joining st looks even with other sts. Secure on the back sts of the work.
Basic embroidery –> chain stitch.
- This pattern is working in spiral continuously.
- You can use other types of yarns.
SPRING FLOWER ORNAMENT
Petal part. I use peach.
Using new color (I use dusty blue). Make ch 71. ss start from the 2nd ch from hook back to the 1st ch. ch1 and cut the yarn end. 70sts. Note: You can make the desired length as you wish. Don’t feel too tied to this indicated length.
Facing the wrong sides each other. Grab new color of yarn (I use soft gray) and make a chain stitch between R3 and R4. The chain stitch should be made on both surfaces of 2 flower appliques. There should be totally 21 chain stitch. (The tutorial of chain stitch is already explained above).
Sew the edges of each petal one by one using a long yarn end. Insert the polyfill little by little when 1 petal is sewn, and then continue sewing another petal until its filled and finished. Note: I use a tweezer to insert and push the polyfill in the narrow space. It really helped.
Oooh… Don’t forget to sew the string on one of the tops of the petal (I almost forgot this). And here’s the finished look 😀
Hope you enjoy the Spring Flower Ornament crochet pattern. I’d love to see your version of Spring Flower Ornament to share on Instagram use this hashtag #kenjiku and/ or simply tag me @kenjiku_ .
