This pattern can be added to your queue in Ravelry.
I first learned about this pattern in a post on Google+ a few months ago. I loved the 3-dimensional look of the flower and the fullness of the layered petals.
I used Red Heart Soft Yarn and a 4.5 mm hook to crochet my dahlia flower.
I LOVE the final result.
I did have some trouble understanding the written explanation for the Special Stitch used (tr4tog). Thankfully I remembered to read the whole pattern before I started and I had seen the photo tutorials further down the page 🙂 Kinga prepared a fabulous photo tutorial to outline the steps – so I was able to proceed without incident.
I added a pinback to this lovely flower – another brooch to add to my collection –
Kinga also provides instructions to make this Dahlia flower into a Dahlia Flower Granny Square. I think this would make a stunning afghan.
Here is the link to her Dahlia in a Square – Granny Square Pattern. This is a FREE pattern.
