Today I found a pattern for this quick easy pretty tropical flower
Use a 2mm hook and 4ply yarn
Begin with 8 chain and join with a sl st.
Round 1: 1 chain then into the base ring do 1 dc, [ do 3 ch, then into base ring do 1 dtr, 3 ch, 1dc into base ring] Pull stitches close to form a neat petal. Repeat 6x more to make 7 petals. Sl st into first dc.
Round 2: Sl st into each of next three chain and the dtr stitch below. [12 ch, 1tr into 9th chain from hook, 3 ch, sl st to top of next dtr below which is the top of the next petal.] Repeat 6x more and there will be 7 petals. The final sl st goes into the 1st chain stitch not the dtr stitch below.
Round 3: Work 3 sl st . * Do 3ch, [then into 8 chain space below do 1 tr, 3 ch] x4 Then Sl st into treble stitch below. Work 3 sl st down the chain towards the tip of the inner petal, then 3 sl st back up the chain away from the inner petal. *
Repeat from * to * 6x more. After seven petals do just 3 sl st and stop where the round began.
Round 4: [Do 3 dc into each of the next three chain spaces.
Into next chain space do 1 dc, 1 htr, 1dtr, 1 htr, 1 dc,
Do 3 dc into each of the next three chain spaces] Repeat 6x more so all 7 petals are done. Sl st and cast off.
