Layer flower

Time for a little bit of crochet show and tell.
The Granny ripple is starting to grow.
It's a relaxing pattern to work. Ripple along one way, ripple along the other.
Speaking of the pattern, I'm not totally sure if I can share it with you. As I said before, it is a bit of a mish mash of 2 other patterns. You can find the 2 patterns here and here. I do feel really bad, but I guess it would be stealing if I did share. Do you forgive me???????
Let me make it up to you.
 I have a little flower pattern to share.

UK terms (US terms in brackets)

Ch 3 join with a slst to form a ring.
The hole is tiny, so you may have to wiggle it around a bit, to fit your hook in.
Rd 1. Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch) 12 dc (sc) into ring, slst into 1st dc (sc). 12 dc (sc)
Rd2. Ch3, 3tr tog (3dc tog) into next dc (sc), ch3, slst into next dc (sc). Do this 5 more times. Join with a slst into 1st of beginning 3ch.
Fasten off neatly.
I made 3, with different yarns.
The red one is made with cotton and a 4.5mm hook
The pink one is made with DK and a 4mm hook.
The blue one is made with 4ply and a 3mm hook.

I sewed them together, and added a button.
Yay pretty!
Till next time

  5. Happy Crochet! Lovely colors in your blanket but I really like your little flowers. I think it would be easier to make them this way (each separate) then doing it in layers (one flower with 3 layers). Thanks for sharing your tutorial for the flowers.
