How to make flower stitch in crochet

 

This beautiful flower texture is made by chains, double crochet and slip stitch.

However, despite being a combination of basic stitches, crocheting them requires some skill. This is why we recommend this project if you’re at an advanced level of crochet.

You have craeted the first petal of the flower. Chain 3 and secure them in the hole with a slip stitch. Chain 3 and double crochet 2 into the hole.* Now you Will have two petals. To start the next flower, chain 10, join the last and the 6th with a slip stitch and make two petals in the hole by repeating from * to *. Work in this way to form as many flowers as you like.
