BREEZYBOT FLOWER WITH TENDRILS


This example is made with worsted cotton yarn with a 5mm hook for the flower and a 4.25 mm hook for the tendrils. Gauge is not important, as long as the stitches are as tight or loose as you want them.


Center:
Make a reverse slip knot (so that it’s tightened by pulling the tail, rather than the yarn attached to your skein). Open loop to about an inch diameter.

Within the loop, sc 1 and ch 2 (this will form your first stitch), dc 11, pull yarn tail to tighten loop, then sl stitch your last dc to the top of the first stitch to form a circle. If you are chaning color for the petals, tie off. (You can weave in the ends here, as I did, or leave them until the end. If the item you’re attaching to is the same color, leave the tails long so you can stitch it to the item without showing).



Petals:
Sl st your petal color into one of the FRONT loops of the circle. [Ch 3, sk 1, sl st 1] around to form 6 arcs.
Working in each arc, sc 1, hdc 1, dc 3, hdc 1, sc 1.
When you’ve made your 6 petals, sl st to join and tie off.
(You can weave in the ends here, as I did, or leave them until the end. If the item you’re attaching to is the same color, leave the tails long so you can stitch it to the item without showing).





Tendrils:
Starting in the BACK loop behind where you joined one of the petals, sc to join, ch 13
*Working back along the chain, sl st 1, then sc 3 in each of the next 9 st, then sc 1 in each of the last 2 st.
Sc 1 in each of next 2 st. (You should now be in the back loop behind where you attached another petal). Repeat from * to form second tendril. Tie off. (You can weave in the ends here, as I did, or leave them until the end. If the item you’re attaching to is the same color, leave the tails long so you can stitch it to the item without showing).



If you haven’t already, weave in the extra ends, leaving only the tails you’ll use to stitch on to your item.
