CROCHET PATTERNS (Crochet Flower Pattern #9 Gerbera) – 365 Flowers Bouquet Project

 

Crochet Gerbera Daisy

365 Flower Bouquet Project – PATTERN DIRECTORY,  the landing page of my blog contains links to all the flower crochet patterns I've designed so far.

If you are familiar with Ravelry and you’d like to have a go at my patterns, join us at 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet on Ravelry!

Louise has posted a pink gerbera on her page Louise Docker Photography. I love these flowers. Wikipedia says it is the fifth most used cut flower in the world and guess what?… I believe them. Their vibrant coloured petals are contrasting so beautifully against the black middle.

      Hi Stacy,
      the Gerbera flower is 12cm diameter.
      Are you in process of making it? Do you find the pattern difficult?
      I’d love to see a picture when it’s done :-)

    Hi Camelia,
    Love the gerbera (haven’t looked at the other flowers yet). I AM having a problem with understanding row 5 though. I do understand the tricot and sl st have to be the same as in row 4, but I cannot see where to attach these stitches to – in the back of the flower? I cannot see anywhere, either in the front or the back, where it would be logical to put the stitches of row 6 (do I make any sense, do you understand what I mean? Hope so).
    I’d be grateful if you were able to throw some light on this for me.
    Kind regards,
    Ingrid

    • Camelia says:

      Hi Ingrid,

      Row4 and 5 are two rows of stamens worked in pink colour. The sl sts on R4 are worked on the front loops only from previous row. In that way, you can work R5 on the back loops only from R4. After that you’ll start working the petals. I hope the explanation makes sense.

      Happy crocheting!
