Anemone Pattern


It seems my faffing was actually more productive than I thought.  Thank you so much for your anemone love.  You asked for my pattern so, without further ado …


I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarn and a 4mm hook.  My finished flowers measure exactly 5cm.

I have used UK terminology in my pattern but included US conversion in brackets.

Round 1 : Using Colour A (I used dark brown since I don't have a black), chain 2 and work 9 htr (hdc) in the second chain from hook (going through one loop of the chain only).  Join the round with a slip stitch to the very first htr (hdc).  Pull yarn all the way through stitch and, leaving a short tail, cut.

Round 2 : Tie Colour B (I used cream) to tail of Colour A and pull a loop through the same stitch (where you made a slip stitch to finish off Colour A).  Chain 1 and 1 dc (sc) in the same stitch.  Work 2 dc (sc) in the next and each remaining stitch of the round.  Join with a slip stitch to the first of the first 2 dc (sc).  Pull yarn all the way through stitch and, leaving a short tail, cut.

Round 3 : Tie Colour C to tail of Colour B and pull a loop through the same stitch (where you made a slip stitch to finish off Colour B).  Chain 1 and then work 3 tr (dc) followed by 1 dc (sc) in the same stitch.  *Skip a stitch.  Dc, 3 tr, dc (sc, 3 dc, sc) in the next stitch.*  Repeat ** to end of round.  You should have 9 petals.  Pull yarn all the way through stitch and, leaving a short tail, cut.  Thread tail of yarn through a tapestry needle and pass it through the base of the first petal, to the reverse of your flower.  Secure ends.

Leaf : Chain 12.  Slip stitch to first chain.  Chain 12.  Slip stitch to first chain.  Repeat until you have five loops.  Pull yarn all the way through stitch and fasten off.

You are free to do with your finished anemones as you please.  Where applicable, a linky-poo back to me would be very much appreciated.  Thank you!

Feel free to let me know if you have any problems.

Happy hooking.

  22. Love these so much! Must find a moment to make some, they are very jolly and will look nice on a pin on my upper boob slope! (Over the clothes I hasten to add!) There will of course be linky-pooing when this occurs! ;)
