Forget-Me-Not Free Pattern
I love forget-me-not flowers – my Gramps had them engraved around my Nana’s wedding band and to me, they are somewhat magical because of this 🙂
Although the flower is modelled after the forget-me-not I chose to make mine in navy blue – it worked better with the hat I was crocheting.
Hook: 4.5 mm (7)
Yarn: Bernat Handicrafter Cotton
Abbreviations: R – round, r – row, ch – chain, st – stitch, sts – stitches, sc – single crochet, sl st – slip stitch, sc2tog – single crochet 2 stitches together (aka single crochet decrease), dc3tog – double crochet 3 together (aka double crochet decrease)
sc2tog: insert your hook into the next st and pull up 1 loop (2 loops on your hook), insert your hook into the next st and pull up 1 loop (3 loops on your hook), yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook
dc3tog: *yarn over the hook, insert your hook into the next st and pull up 1 loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook*, repeat from * to * 2 more times (4 loops on your hook), yarn over the hook and pull through all 4 loops on your hook
Note: chain stitches do not count as stitches for the totals in the [ ] at the end of each row
R1: ch 6, join with a sl st, to the 1st ch st to form a ring
R2: 10 sc into the ring 
You will now be working in rows to form each petal.
r1: 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts, ch 1, turn, 
r2: 2 sc in the 1st st, 1 sc in the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the last st, ch 1, turn 
r3: 1 sc in each st across, ch 1, turn 
r4: sc2tog, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, sc2tog, ch 2, turn 
r5: skip the 1st st, dc3tog, ch 2, 1 sl st to the end of the row 
turn to work along the side of the petal (row ends)
sl st in each row end to the base of the petal, 1 sl st to the base of the petal (the sc st from R2)
Repeat the Petal instructions 4 times to make a total of 5 petals.
