7 petal Flower

I have been working on a scarf.  Decided to use up a few skeins of sock yarn to make one in the Irish Crochet Style.  Or something along those lines anyway.

Many of the pieces I used were found in various crochet magazines.  This is a simple flower that I did on the fly.  No chart, but I do have lots of photos.

to start, wrap the yarn around a finger a few times.  I did it 8 times.  You can also chain 6 and make a ring, but I like the look of this one better.

Insert the hook in the middle and pull up a loop.
then make 21 Single Crochet in the loop  Join with a slip stitch to the first sc

Chain 4 (or 5 if you want the petal to lay flatter)

Yarn over twice and start aTriple Crochet in the next stitch.  

Instead of pulling through 2 loops 3 times like to finish the Triple Crochet stop after doing it twice.  You will be left with 2 loops on the hook.

Yarn Over and repeat this in the same stitch.
Now you have 3 loops on the hook

Repeat to the next stitch leaving you with 5 loops on the hook

Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops finishing the main part of the petal

Chain 4 (or 5) 

Slip Stitch in the next stitch 
One petal finished.  

Make 6 more the same way.  Finish by slip stitching the final chain 4 to the base oft he first chain 4.These are two of the ones I made. 

It's an easy flower that's not really dependent on gauge.  The yarn wrap in the center instead of a chain loop makes the center circle solid and a little raised which I like.  

the scarf itself will be 3 this - only longer.
