Works from front to back. Smallest flower to biggest flower.
work 6 sc into ring. SS the 6th sc to the 1st sc. Ch 3.
Ss into next sc, ch 3 all the way around. (6, 3ch loops)
Sc, ch1, 3 dc, ch 1, sc into each of the 6 loops.
(Tip: if you switched colors, be sure to keep the new yarn in front when beginning the new flower. Maybe I'm an airhead, but it took me a minute to figure that out.)
The crochet linking the loops to the circle center of the first flower are considered the posts.
Sc around post. Ch4. Repeat on each post. Ss last chain 4 to first sc. (6, 4 ch loops)
If you want to switch colors, tie off and begin with a new color.
Sc around post. Ch5. Repeat on each post. Ss last chain 4 to first sc. (6, 5 ch loops)
Sc, ch1, 5 dc, ch 1, sc into each of the 6 loops.
Flip the flower over and admire your work!
Tie the flower onto the headwrap by weaving yarn through the flower and tying the yarn onto the headwrap in several places around the flower. Hide the ties by weaving them into the headwrap. Wow! You look lovely!
