FREE PATTERN - Breezybot Spiral Flower

These patterns are for personal use only; to sell items made from this pattern, please contact me at breezybot@hotmail.com. Please do not reproduce or sell my patterns. 



Yarn weight and hook size can vary, depending on the look you want. For this example, I used worsted cotton yarn and a 5.0mm hook.

Make a magic loop (basically a reversed slip knot so that pulling on the tail tightens it) and leave it open to about a half inch diameter.

*Sc 1 in the center of the loop, chain 12

Working back along the chain, sc 2 in first st, then sc 3 in each of the next 10 st, twisting the spiral as you go (you can adjust it afterward – I just found it easier to do it as I went along)

Repeat from * until you have the desired number of spirals (6 works well)

Pull the tail from the magic loop to close it and tie off the ends

Finishing:
If you are attaching to a hat or something else, leave a long tail and use that to stitch to the item. If desired, sew a button in the center

Ch 4, sl stitch to first ch to make a loop.

Rd 1: Sc 10 in center of loop, sl st to join

Rd 2: [ch 7, sl stitch in same stitch you started in; sl st in next two stitches]* repeat around so you have 5 loops

Rd 3: *working in the center of each loop, sc2, hdc 2, dc 4, hdc 2, sc 2. Slip stitch in next st, then repeat from * in each loop until you have five petals. Tie off.
