Once you learn how to master these little flowers you can easily add them as a special border or work them into most any other crochet project.
This pattern is relatively simple. Before you begin adding these stitches, you'll need a base row. Work with a row of multiples of three plus one. This stitch is considered easy, and beginners should be able to tackle it quickly.
You'll need to know chain stitches, single crochets, color changing (simply adding a new color at the end of a row), double crochets, and double crochets together. If you are unfamiliar with the double crochet, this tutorial from Hopefully Honey offers a quick tutorial.
