Need a simple little flower to embellish your next crochet project?

tr3tog – *yarn over the hook two times, insert the hook into the stitch indicated and pull up 1 loop, (yarn over the hook and pull through 2 of the loops on the hook) twice*, repeat from * to * two more times; yarn over the hook and draw through all remaining loops (all 4) on the hook

Hi Cathrin, I used a 4.5 mm hook for this design. That is a pretty small hook for acrylic weight yarn 🙂 Hope this helps, Rhondda
Why do u have to use such large hooks?????
