Chunky Granny Flower Tutorial...

I am back again for another quick tutorial...
This time a very Chunky Flower...
Now you may like to do this design in something 
less bulky...
and you can...
This pattern works whatever yarn you want to use...
So give it a try...It's very quick
and so easy...

Chunky Flower

I used
20 ply yarn
7mm hook
and when I sewed it onto my scarf I added the button...

So lets begin...

Ch 6, join with a sl st to form a circle...
1 ch...


12 dc(sc) into circle.
Join with a sl st to first dc(sc).
Starting "PETAL"
2 ch...


In same stitch as the sl st you just joined into.
Do a tr(dc) till you only have two loops left on hook...
This means.
Yarn over hook,place hook into stitch,yarn over hook,pull through loop,
yarn over hook and pull through two loops...
You will have two loops left on hook...


In same stitch as the sl st you just joined into.
Do another tr(dc) till you only have three loops left on hook...
See "this means"...


With your three loops still on hook...
Yarn over hook and pull through all three loops...


3 ch,...


By using a sl st attach this 3 ch to the same space that all of your stitches have gone...
This is your first "PETAL"...


Sl St across next dc(sc)...
Continue around your circle...


By doing a "PETAL" in the next dc(sc)...then sl st across next dc(sc)...etc...
You will finish with a sl st.
and have 6 "PETALS" in total...


Trim and sew in ends...

Attach to all and everything without exception... admiring your handy work
and granny goodness...


Well Done!!!
