Double Crochet Flower

Serenity's dress is from courtneycourtney! I'll have more pictures of it soon!

I found the cutest crochet flower from Daisy Cottage Design and had to try it!

The Double Layer Daisy pattern is super easy to make - even for beginners.

I did alter the pattern slightly because I think it works up faster for me, but it's still very easy to crochet.

Here's how I made the two double flowers on Serenity's headband:

ch = chain
sp = space
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
tr = triple crochet
bpsc = back post single crochet

Crochet Hook Needed:
F, 1st double flower
H, 2nd double flower

Sugar 'n Cream 100% cotton yarn

Double Crochet Flower:

Round 1: Start with a Magic Adjustable Ring, 10 dc in circle, join with a sl st, tighten ring.
Round 2: ch 1, sc in same st, *ch 2, skip 1 sc, sc in next stitch, repeat from * around, ch 2, skip 1 sc, join with a sl st.
Round 3: *ch 3, 3 tr in ch 2 sp, ch 3, sl st in sc, repeat from * around, join with a sl st.
Round 4: ch 1, *bpsc around sc post on round 2, ch 3, repeat from * around, join with a sl st.
Round 5: *ch 2, 3 dc in ch 3 sp, ch 3, sl sc in sc, repeat from * around, join with a sl st.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Make two flowers different sizes, and use your glue gun to attach it to a headband or hat.
