fibers on friday ~ flowers

I've been playing around with making crochet flower pins to add the the baby hats I made last week.

This flower is almost as big as the hat. It will look so cute on a newborn!

I made a couple flowers with a sports weight yarn to show the flowers more clearly.

All three of these flowers are basically the same.  I chained 32 for the yellow, 48 for the blue, and 66 for the pink to start.  After you get the chain done, double crochet in the 3rd chain from the hook, double crochet in each chain to the end.  Chain 1 turn and single crochet in the 1st double crochet, *5 double crochets in the next double crochet, single crochet in the next double crochet, repeat from * to the end. Single crochet into the 2nd stitch of the chain 3 from the previous row.  Finish off and cut the yarn leaving a  long tail (about 14 inches.)Follow the natural curl; arrange and stitch to hold in place.  Sew the pin hardware to the back of the flower.

(I chained 60 for the big girl hat flower.)
