Materials and Tools:

Lion Brand Micro Spun (2.5oz/168yd) in Turquoise, Mango and Fuchsia, 1 ball each
crochet hook, 5mm
scissors
tapestry needle

Materials (pin):
pin-back
small amount of sewing thread
sewing needle

Materials (stemmed flower):
12"-long wooden dowel (we used a Panacea floral plant stake)
glue gun

Note: Gauge doesn't really matter when you're making flowers. If you want to achieve a size similar to the one we produced, use any worsted-weight yarn and a hook between 5mm and 6mm in size.

Abbreviations:
ch chain
sl st slip stitch
sc single crochet
hdc half double crochet
dc double crochet
tr treble crochet
flo front loop only
blo back loop only
yo yarn over

Bobble:
Work a dc until 2 loops remain on the hook. Do not complete the stitch. Yo and insert hook into the same stitch; work half of a dc (3 loops remain on hook). Continuing to work into the same stitch, work half of a third dc (4 loops remain on hook). Yo and draw yarn through all 4 loops.

Pattern:
Ch 5. Sl st in first ch to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 1. Work 10 sc into the ring. Sl st into the first sc to join the round.

Round 2: Ch 2. Work {hdc, ch 1, hdc, ch 1, hdc} into the flo of each sc around, until 1 sc remains. Work {hdc, ch 1, hdc, ch 1} into the last sc. Sl st into the top of the turning chain to join the round. Fasten off (figure A).

Round 3: Turn the flower over so that the wrong side is facing. Joining new color of yarn, sl st into blo of first sc from Round 1. Work {dc, tr, dc} into the blo of each sc from Round 1 (figure B). Sl st into first dc to join the round.

Round 4: Sl st in the first stitch. *Ch 3, work 1 bobble in next stitch, ch 3, sl st into next 2 stitches.* Repeat from * to * until 1 stitch remains. Sl st in last stitch. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

To make a stemmed blossom:
Use a glue gun to attach the flower to the top of a dowel. Make several and arrange in a vase.

To make a pin:
Sew a pin-back to the flower. If you want to attach the pin to a stem, glue a piece of felt to the top of the dowel and pin the flower to the fabric.
