Inspired by this Vanessa Bruno tank (as tweeted by the Kollabora guys!), I have come up with a crochet flower which is hopefully similar to the tank and can be made multiple times and then stitched together. It would also make a super cute pin if you attached a brooch to the back.
I have never written a crochet pattern before, so I have just noted the steps I took to make the flower (in US terms).
I used a white bamboo cotton yarn in DK weight and a 4mm hook.
- make a magic loop/circle
- make 8 puff stitches into the circle with a chain stitch after each puff
- pull the starting cord of the magic loop tight to close the circle
- slip stitch into the first chain to join
single crochet in each chain stitch around the circle
slip stitch to the beginning chain to join
Chain 8, slip stitch into the next single crochet to form a petal
slip stitch across to the next single crochet
repeat the above two steps until you have petals all around the flower
Once complete flatten out!
