Stop stop Your leftover wool no longer has to end up in the trash. We have the perfect solution for recycling.

You need:

Remnants of wool in different colors, thicknesses and qualities, matching crochet hooks, scissors, darning needles.

If you still know then. how single stitches, double crochets, chain and chain stitches work, it becomes very easy.

That’s how it’s done:

Cast on a chain of chain stitches of any length for the leaves.

1st row: In the first stitch (M) crochet 1 double crochet (dc), in the next 1 half double crochet (hstb), in the following sts up to the penultimate stitch 1 double crochet (dc) each or, if it is to be a thick leaf, 1 Take double treble crochets (Dtrb). In the penultimate st 1 htr, in the last st 3 sc.

2nd row: Turn the work from there and work the same way from the other side of the sheet, this time also in the LM chain from the beginning, but around the stitch loop that is still free. Connect the last st to the first st of the 1st round (round) with a slip stitch (KM).

For flowers with 3 leaves in a thread ring, start with 6 sc (or tr) and finish with KM. Ch 3, fasten with KM to the next but one st, a total of 3 times around each loop 1 sc, 3 tr, 1 sc, fasten with KM between the leaves. Repeat all around.

For larger flowers around each arch z. B. 1 sc, 1 htr, 2 tr, 2 tr, 2 tr, 1 htr, 1 sc. For flowers with 4 leaves start with 8 sc.
