Crochet Poinsettia Directions for your Cards

Tomorrow, you are going to see more of this card. For right now, I would like to share with you the directions I drew up to crochet this wonderful Poinsettia.

We are going to start with a size 7 crochet hook and one skein of embroidery floss. You can use crochet thread, but I like how the embroidery floss looks. It is a personal choice and either material will produce this flower.

To beg: ch 4, join with a sl st in first ch.
Row 2: *ch 9, sc in 2nd chain from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, 1 trc in next ch and in each of the next 2 chains, dc in next ch, hdc in last ch, sl st in circle*. rep from * to * 4 times for a total of 5 petals.
Row 3: *ch 3, sl st between petals", repeat * to * 4 times for a total of 5 ch 3 loops.
Row 4: sl st in first ch 3 loop, *ch 9, sc in 2nd chain from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, 1 trc in next ch and in each of the next 2 chains, dc in the next ch, hdc in the last ch, sl st in next ch 3 loop, repeat from * to * 4 more times, sl st in first sc of row and fasten off.



I would love to see your Poinsettia if you should decide to use my pattern. Just leave me a comment and I will come to visit you. If you have any problems, or find a mistake in this pattern please let me know so I can fix it. Enjoy!!!

Hugs,
Carol
