Simplest crochet flower tutorial

Hi everyone,

although I don't really use my blog anymore since I created my very own webpage (www.judyvanbutton.com) I thought it would still be nice to post a wee tutorial for all of you, and especially the friend who requested this tutorial.
Now I'm not really good at explaining things, I'm more of a visual person (hence all the pictures), so bear with me please. If you have any questions than do please ask them ^_^

 Crochet a chain of 60 (I used double knit acrylic wool with a size 4 hook), crochet on till you've gone about 5 times from side to side. Just pretend you're starting to crochet a scarf ^_^

 Now use a basting stitch and go from one side of the long chain to the other and pull, the crochet will now curl on itself and will basically form the flower for you. and you get this....

Now for some stamen, crochet 3 times a chain of 5. Now use the basting stich again to pull one thread to the other, don't pull to much or the stamen won't be straight.

 Pull the stamen through the middle of the flower, et voila a flower ^_^ Now just to tidy it up at the back.
 Make a chain of 10 and add about 4 rows, here comes the basting stitch again.....

 Pull the thread and sew it closed, so you get a tiny cup/nest.
 Sew this to the flower and hide the ends in it.
 Pull the last thread to the middle and cut off, or just keep it there.
 Now here you go, a very simple tutorial for a pretty wee flower.
 I hope this was useful and that you enjoy making them ^_^
