The Maybelle Crochet Flower


So here it is, the Maybelle Crochet Flower. I just can't stop making these lovelies. They are super simple and pure bliss to make. The pattern can be found at 6ichthusfish in both UK and US terms. For you who like the visual part of a tutorial you can see my step by step picture tutorial above. SVENSK version av mönstret kan du hitta här. Beware, you might get the Maybelle Crochet Flower bug, just like me. I am thinking bunting, window decorations, baby mobile, decoration for pillow, bag, clothing...

Actually it was mostly this baby mobile that I saw over at Emma Lamb's blog that got me going on the flowers, but once I started making them my mind started to come up with one idea after another. When indulging in my flowers during coffee break at work with a colleague I suddenly could see a shawl take form from these flowers when we put them together in a pyramid... Who knows where this will end. I just keep on making them. I just can't stop myself. Every other crochet WiP (including my poor Gyspy Blanket...) is on hold for these.

Tomorrow I will tell you all about the yarn I am using and host a "Scrumptious Tilda Yarn Give Away". Don't miss that if you are a yarn lover like me. :D

Have a wonderful day exploring the Maybelle Crochet Flower. Enjoy the ride!

Update to post: I have added a square to this flower for endless possibilities of creations. Follow the links: ENGLISH: Maybelle Square Crochet Pattern.  SVENSKA: Maybelle rutan på svenska.

Kärlek
Annette

    1. Hi
      If you follow the link to the written pattern:

      http://6ichthusfish.typepad.com/files/maybelle-crochet-flower-pattern-usa-terms.pdf

      you will see that you start the row with 3 chains which counts as the first dc and after that you make 23dc's into the ring which ends up being 24 stitches in total.
      Good luck.
