Xeranthemum Crochet Flower Motif Pattern Instructions

Step 1:  Chain 6; form a ring

Step 2:  Make 20 flower petals in center of ring >>>>

>>>> Chain 6; beginning with 2nd chain from hook, work your way to the center ring, crocheting 1 stitch in each chain respectively like this: (sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc); then, slip stitch in the ring and make another petal until you have 20 in all. Finish off and weave in loose ends.

Special tip: wrap slip stitches around beginning chain tail, so you don’t have to weave it in at all.
