A Purple Wavy Flower

I was emailing chatting to my new penpal in Australia, Louise from Red Haired Amazona, about flowers.  She mentioned about a wavy flower, and while I love crocheting roses – I made a good few in the last couple of weeks so thought I’d try something new!

I remember making a wavy flower by accident a while ago – so thought I’d attempt it again and actually write it down now!

So – YarnArt begonia, 2.25mm hook, the challenge began!

(If making with Double knitting – use a 3.5mm hook and crochet pretty tightly and it will flair out!)

Round 2 – Chain 3, 1DC in this stitch, 2 DC in each stitch all the way round.  SS to top of the chain 3.

Round 3 (Change colour) – Chain 3, 2DC in this stitch, 3 DC in each stitch all the way round.  SS to top of the chain 3.

Round 4 – Chain 3, 2DC in this stitch, 3 DC in each stitch all the way round.  SS to top of the chain 3.

Round 5 – Chain 3, 1 DC in each stitch all the way round.  SS to top of the chain 3.

Ideally I’d of done more rounds – but time only permitted this!  If you make one bigger I’d love to see it!
