Buttercup Crochet Pattern
Yarn: tapestry cotton in colour A=green, colour B=dark yellow, colour C=light yellow
Crochet hook: 2.5mm
Details of components:
- a small ball shape, green colour stigma in the centre (colour A)
- 5 bright yellow, highly lustrous petals (colour C)
- lots of yellow stamens (colour B)
R1: using A, make 2ch, 3sc in the first ch, join with sl st, 1ch, continue in round 5 sc. Finish off A.
Start: using B, make 5ch and join with sl st in ring
R1: (4ch, sl st in 2nd ch, sl st, 1sc in the ring)x11. Fasten off.
Start: using C, make 7ch and join with sl st in ring, 1ch
Make 5 petals in ring:
1 petal: R1:3sc, R2: 1ch, 3sc, R3: 1ch, 4sc, R4: 1ch, 5sc, R5: 1ch, 6sc, R6: 1ch, 7sc,
R7: 1ch, 6sc, R8: 1ch, 5sc;
- continue with sc on the edge of the petal towards the ring as follows: (1sc, 1sc), 4sc
R9: (RS) 5sc, (1sc, 1sc), 5sc, (1sc, 1sc), 5sc
After the petals are completed, insert the green centre in the stamens’ ring and the stamens inside the petals ring. Stitch them all together. I stitched the petals as well a little bit, for a more bud-like appearance.
And, here is our buttercup!
