Loop Petal Flower
Two rounds of sc (UK dc) are followed by petals worked with 19 chain, along which you pick up loops – then pull your yarn through all the loops on your hook… whoosh!
I used sports weight cotton yarn for the flower pictured and a 3 mm hook. I also worked it in cotton thread and a 1.75 mm hook, and in aran weight using Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic and a 5 mm hook, which turned out great.
Sports weight flower here measures 1½”/4 cm across.
