CROCHET PATTERNS (Irish Crochet Pattern #112 * 6 Petals Flower) – 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet Project


6-Petals Flower crochet pattern in Irish Crochet Style

The following flower pattern is based on an antique Irish crochet motif from Priscilla’s Irish Crochet Book. We're going to use the padding cord again in the central part and also in the petals. Irish crochet require working uniform stitches, so this simple pattern will be a nice and quick way to practise working over the padding cord.

    Love the pattern. …but I need a little help! Could you kindly clarify round two, how to ” join 2 strands padding cord by…” I know one needs to create a base to make the petal, but not understanding quite how to go about it. Thanks so much!

    • Camelia says:

      To make the padding cord, you need to fold in half a piece of the working thread = 2 strands padding cord.

      You’ll need to work a sc in the folded end of the padding cord and then work the petal on the cord…
