Double Bobble Stitch Crochet Flowers

Lots of playtime today...some little chunkies with 8 petals, start with 8sc [8dc]
some double chunkies...
and more double chunkies...
and more circle chunkies...with a different colour combo and 12 bobbles stitches start with 12dc [12tr], for this version
some with a brown backgound...and a second round of 18 bobble sts. 

 and then made into a hexagon instead of a square, make a corner between 
every 3rd bobble
 lots of colour...

almost the same pattern but some differences



Pattern for 8 petal Bobble Flower motif
US Terms and UK Terms in brackets


Round 1: 1 finger wrap 4 wraps or Chain 4 and sl st into a circle
Round 2: 8sc [8dc], into circle sl st to complete round
change colour
Round 3: These bobbles are quite chunky and worked from the back of the work so the bobble pop on the right side

Attach flower colour with a sc [dc], in the same stitch do a cluster of 3 tr [3dtr],* sc [dc], into next stitch and another cluster of 3 tr [3dtr]* and repeat *to* until you have 8 bobble petals
sl st to complete.

NOTE: It makes a lovely flower decoration as it is, stop here if you want flowers to attach to a project.

Round 4: Add leaves and work from the front of the square again.

Att. a shade of green with 3ch between one of the bobbles and do 2dc [2tr],  3dc [3tr], in each ch sp.

NOTE: The motif now looks like a circle....Another round of bobble stitches could be added here and then add the square or it could be turned into a hexagon 

To continue into a granny square
Round 5: Att. back ground colour in one of the sp,  2ch, counts as first dc [tr], 2dc [2tr],  2ch, 3dc [3tr],  this makes the first corner in the next sp,  3sc [3dc], repeat corner and side to end,  sl st. to complete the round

...Now in bed and waiting to see the new series of 
been waiting for this to start for weeks
Enjoy your evening
Hugs to all x

  2. Yes, come to the states and give us a lesson and I'll come and Kris can cook. Maybe Kate and Pammy Sue can join us. :-)

    I like the grey background better, it sets off the color better, the brown kinds of "eats" the color.

    I **LOVE** the colorful eye-candy, reminds me of my post of Dahlias today!

    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
