Since it’s Mother’s Day (happy day to all the mothers), I thought I would share my carnation pattern. I made pins out of these, but they could be used for all sorts of things; barrettes, headbands, bracelets, & bouquets, just for starters.
Caron’s Simply Soft (Harvest Red shown) & an F hook
gave me about a 2in flower. For a 3in flower, I used Red Heart Super Saver
& an H hook
- ch 4, join
- *SC, ch 4* x 8 in the circle, join to the top of the first SC; 8 loops
- ch 4, *DC, ch2* x 4 in ch 4 space of the previous row, [*Dc, ch 2* x 5] in each ch 4 space around, sl st in beginning ch 4 space; 40 DC, ch 2 (incl initial ch 4)
- ch 4, *DC, ch2* x 4 in ch 2 space of the previous row, [*Dc, ch 2* x 5] in each ch 2 space around, sl st in beginning ch 4 space; 200 DC, ch 2 (incl initial ch 4)
I appreciate any feedback on my patterns, so please leave any comments or questions below. This was my initial version, but I did make some changes as I went along. I didn’t get all of those changes on paper so some of this is taken from memory & looking over the last flowers I made. Hopefully I got everything straight & it makes sense!
