    OMG! I almost purchased a pattern for a magnolia blossom today. I’m so glad I didn’t because yours is just so much prettier.

  2. ???????? ?????? says:

    Ohhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! You did it!!!! It’s soooooo beautiful!!!! You’re a true artist!!!! Thank you soooo much!!!!

  3. Maggie says:

    I love this pattern. It turned out really beautiful. I just had one problem though, on row 6 of the small petals it says to do 4sc in a row, but that wouldn’t fit over the previous nine with all the rest of the stitches. So I did 3sc and it turned out to give me the 13 for the next row. Just thought I’d let you know, or you could tell me if I messed up. Thanks so much for the pattern and for generously letting us have it for free. :)

  4. Camelia says:

    Hi Maggie,
    Most likely you’ve interpreted my instructions correctly if you ended up with 13sts after row 6. Let’s see:
    R6: 1sc increase, 4sc, (1sc, 1sc, 1sc), 4sc, 1sc increase, 1ch
    I see what you mean, the change should be:
    R6: 1sc increase, 3sc, (1sc, 1sc, 1sc), 3sc, 1sc increase, 1ch = 13sts
    I think it is a similar mistake made@ the large petals in R6&10. I’ll rectify it straight away. Thank you. I’m working at train speed sometimes, I’m glad when somebody actually makes the pattern to proof read it for me :-)

    So, in row 5 you had 9sc, 1ch.
    In row 6

  5. Camelia says:

  6. Renee says:

    I’m beginning to feel incredibly stupid, because I’m trying and trying to understand your instructions. I’ve made some of your flowers before, but I’m having trouble figuring out the way this pattern is written. When you write 3scs, do you mean 3 in the same stitch? And when you write increase do you just mean 2 in the same stitch?

    I’ve tried and then pulled apart a petal about four times now because I just can’t get it to come out right. O.o

    • Camelia says:

      Hi Dee,

      I’ve written the patterns more or less in an unconventional way, that’s why you’re having trouble reading them. Let’s see, maybe I can answer some of your questions:

      – 3scs means 3 stitches, it doesn’t mean 3 in the same stitch (conventional abbreviation: sts)

      – 1sc increase means 2 sc in the same stitch (conventional abbreviation: 1sc inc or 2sc in next st)

      – (1sc, 1sc, 1sc) means 3 sc in the same stitch (conventional abbreviation: 2sc inc or 3sc in next st)

      – 2-sts sc decrease means decreasing with 1 stitch worked in sc

      – 3-sts sc decrease means decreasing with 2 stitch worked in sc.

      I hope the pattern will work out fine this time. Good luck.

  8. Dee says:

    And for the record, I’ve been crocheting for years now it’s just I’m having trouble with the way it’s written I guess.

  9. ellen says:

    Thank you so much for clarifying the way you write instructions as I was also quite confused in the absence of the explanation- now it all makes perfect sense.I have been enjoying making your flowers! Thank you for making them available!.
