Fantastic Curly Flower

Yarn: Red Heart with Love
Hook: 5.00 mm Affiliate Link: Blackwood Furls Crochet Hook

Abbreviations: R – round, ch – chain, sl st – slip stitch, sc – single crochet, st – stitch, sts – stitches

You are working in continuous spirals, you do not need to slip stitch to join your rounds – unless specifically indicated.

Using Colour 1:

R1: ch 3, sl st to 1st ch to join into a ring

R2: work 8 sc into the ring

R3: 2 sc in each st around, finish off and weave in ends (I use the Invisible Join Technique)

Using Colour 2:

Join colour 2 with a slip stitch join into any stitch from R3.

Note: Depending on your tension/gauge you may wish to work 3 sc in each ch back to the joining st. 

Petal 1: *chain 10, starting in the 2nd chain from the hook work 2 sc in each ch back to the joining st, 1 sl st to the same st you started from; 1 sl st in the next st*

Repeat from * to * around until you have 16 petals.

Finish off and weave in ends.

  1. Hi Carol, there is only 1 round of petals. Each petal is made up of a chain 10 and you work 2 stitches into each chain and it creates that loopy petal. In the end you will have 16 petals.
    *chain 10, starting in the 2nd chain from the hook work 2 sc in each ch back to the joining st, 1 sl st to the same st you started from; 1 sl st in the next st*
    Hope this helps!

  2. Am I missing something? The photos show two rounds of curly petals but I only see on round in the instructions. ??

  3. Hi 🙂 The Petal is repeated 16 times around. This could be considered R4 – although I do not have a R4 listed in the pattern itself. If you join the yarn and complete the first Petal and then repeat the steps 15 more times you will have 16 petals in total. Hope this helps, Rhondda

  4. You mentioned a r4, i dont see it here. it stops at r3 with petal 1. please help

  5. Hi Jana, I apologize! I had to remove the buttons I had originally on the site as it kept freezing the website – I have added a printfriendly option at the bottom of every post now 🙂 Thank you for reminding me I needed to fix this!! Rhondda

  6. Hi. I read your post on the buttons, but the print one only brings up my printer, nothing else. I’d like to save it as a pdf to my ebooks library. Is there another way? Thanks!

  7. I love the Fantastic Curly Flower. Its perfect for my wreaths, so its my favorite. I follow and share. Thanks!

  8. Hi Amanda,

    The colours are pewter and mallard.
    Hats are Holly Berry and Iced Aqua.

    Red Heart With Love.

    Hope this helps!

  9. I am in love with this look and the colors! Could you please share what the colors are?

  10. Hi shanm, Are you using the recommended hook and yarn combination? If you are they should be curling up the same as mine. If you are using a lighter yarn you will need to use a smaller hook too – if your hook is too large relative to the yarn you are using it may not curl. Hope this helps 🙂 Rhondda

  11. My petals aren’t curling up nice and tight like yours. Any suggestions?

  12. Hi, great pattern. I’m making a lot of different types of flowers right now for the curtains I’ll be hanging in my craft room. This one will fit in very nicely!
    Because I can’t sit at my computer to crochet can you tell me how I can get a printed copy of the pattern, please?

  13. Hi Stephanie, Sorry about that! I copied and pasted and apparently copied and pasted twice! I have fixed it now – thank you for letting me know!! Rhondda

  14. I am confused by R3 and R4. They both say to work 8 sc in the ring.
