CROCHET PATTERNS (Pattern #11 Fresia) – 365 Flowers Bouquet Project

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.

I’ve chosen a white fresia from Louise’s stash (Louise Docker Photography) for today's 365 Flower Challenge.

 Crochet Fresia

INSTRUCTIONS:

Yarn: mercerised cotton thread “Circulo” brand (Ne5/2) colour A= white, colour B=green, colour C=yellow

Crochet hook: 2.5mm

Wire for the stem: 27cm

Polyfill Stuffing

Details of components:

–         Sepals – green cylinder shape where the trumpet will be secured

METHOD:

Flower

Start: using B and 2.5mm hook, make 4ch, join with sl st and continue in round

R1: 1ch, 6sc in ring, join with sl st;

R2: 1ch, 6sc, join with sl st, change to A and cut off B

R3: using A 1ch, 6sc, join with sl st; R4: same; R5: same; R6: same

R7: (1sc, 1sc)x6 = 12sc, join with sl st; R8: same; R9: same

R10: 1ch, (1sc, 1sc), 1sc = 3sc

R11: (increase 1sc on both sides) 1ch, 5sc

R12: 1ch, 5sc; R13: same; R14: same; R15: same

R16: 1ch, skip 1sc, 1sc, skip 1sc, 1sc

R17: 1ch, skip 1sc, 1sc, 1ch,

R18: (1sc, 1dc, 1sc) then sl st on the edge of petal down towards centre.

Repeat (R10 to R17)x4 = 5 petals.

 

Now we make the last petal – white & yellow

R10: 1ch, (1sc, 1sc), 1sc = 3sc

R11: (increase 1sc on both sides) 1ch, 5sc, change to C, cut off A

R12: using C, make 1ch, 5sc; R13: same; R14: same; R15: same, change to A, finish C

R16: using A, make 1ch, skip 1sc, 1sc, skip 1sc, 1sc

R17: 1ch, skip 1sc, 1sc, 1ch,

R18: (1sc, 1dc, 1sc) then sl st on the edge of petal down towards centre. Finish off and hide tails.

 Stuff the cylindrical part of the flower with polyfill.

Stigma & Stamens

Cut a piece of A, 14cm and unwind one of the ends. Half way, start a slip knot, make a picot and finish off. Fold in half (= 1 stamen + stigma).

Cut a second piece of A 14cm long, start a slip knot, make a picot at one end, pull the thread through the last sc. Repeat once more (= 2 stamens). Hide all tails.

Pick the stamens and stigma together and pull the threads through the middle of the flower. Push flower onto the wire.
