I think crochet flowers are usually dull looking, so I tend to shy away from them. For one reason, they are flat and unappealing to me. BUT there are some crochet flowers out there that save me from shying away altogether. For example, I present to you, the Puffy Daisy. I found it here at Eclectic Gipsyland.
yo- yarn over
slst- slip stitch
sc- single crochet
Okay now, if you know how to make a magic loop/circle go for it girlfriend, stop at your ch 1. For those of you who have no clue what a magic circle/loop is:
1. Take your two first fingers (index and middle) and wrap the yarn DOWN the front of your fingers (letting the yarn hang over the back).
2. Continue with the yarn going UP and OVER the back of your fingers, keeping close to your first knuckle
3. Bring the end of the yarn to your thumb and hold it there.
4. Make sure the yarn is making an X with the right side (the feed you are holding with your thumb) of the yarn laying on top.
Now yo, insert,yo,pull through 4x in the next stitch. (17 total loops on hook)
Congratulations! You've made a Puffy Daisy! Now make more and make something cute out of them!
