Marigold Flower

Petal Layer 1

Chain 2 or use magic loop

sl st into 2nd chain from hook (or magic loop), chain 10; HDC in 4th chain from hook and in next 2 chains (3 HDC total), sc in next 3 ch, sl st into last chain; sl st into original chain or magic loop

You have just finished one “petal”.  Repeat this process until you have formed 8 “petals”.  Fasten off.  Tighten loop by tugging on the cast on tail. Do not leave an opening.

Petal Layer 2

Repeat steps for petal layer 1, but make 12 “petals”.  Fasten off. Tighten the original loop by tugging on the cast on tail – leave a small opening (about the circumference of your finger) which allows the second petal layer to be slightly longer than the first.

Flower center

Feel free to use a button here if you choose.

Chain 2 or make a magic loop

1)    Sc 8 into 2nd chain from hook

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing. 

Stack the layers together (center, petal layer 1, petal layer 2) and sew together.  Position the flower onto the completed hat and sew together.
