    I am really impressed with the likeness of this pattern to the photograph. It is so close to realistic and yet so simple to do. Thank you both for your talents and sharing them with us. B.

    I do not seem to understand the following directions:

    Petals base

    R1: (RS) using B make (1ch, 1sc in between the sepals working behind them loosely)x2 = 16st, join with sl st

    Can you possibly explain in more detail?

    Thank you!

      Hi Nancy,

      I called sepals what was supposed to be stamens – sorry about that, I’ve made the change in the instructions. I’ve also changed the no. of sc in the first row of the Stamens from 6sc to 8sc as follows:

      Stamens

      R1: make 2ch, and 8sc in the 2nd ch from hook, join with sl st, 1ch

      This row, when joining with slip st will create a ring on which the the Petal base will be further executed. After finishing the stamens, there will be 8sc in the ring and 8 sts that lead to the stamens. Change to pink and work 16sts (1ch which goes behind the stamen and 1sc in the sc in the ring). Next step, R2 is to change to the bigger hook and make the 16sc in pink.

      I hope it will be easier to follow this time.

      Cheers,

      Camelia

    This is so so beautiful. I love this blog. I just found it a moment ago through another blog I love so much. I have been learning how to make many different kinds of flowers through crochet. I am very much in love with this flower project of yours. They are all so very beautiful.

    I’m having a little trouble with the stamens. I have read through the Clones knot tutorial you have linked and that makes sense to me but I’m struggling to apply it to this instruction:

    “R2: (1sc, 6ch, 1 small Clones knot, 5sl st to return to ring, 1sc)”

    I think what I can’t get my head around is how to make a clones knot small and where the next 5slst come into it.

    Could you explain in a little more detail for me please?
