Twelve Days of Christmas Patterns: Day 2

Hi All!

100FlowersKnitCrochetFor Day 2, I thought I would give you all a simple poinsettia pattern that could be used multiple ways. I used the poinsettia to make napkin rings for Christmas. I got my inspiration from flowers made in 100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet by Lesley Stanfield.

The flower was made with worsted Simply Caron Yarn in Autumn Red and yellow (not sure what color yellow exactly, I lost the label) and a G hook.

For the Flower:

Outer Petals

Ch 5. Sl St in first ch to form ring.

Ch 3. Dc 7 times in ring. (8 dc)

Ch 2. sc in same st. 2 sc in each stitch around. sl st in top of ch 2. (18 sc)

Ch 3.Dc in each stitch around, Sl st in top of ch 3. (18 dc)

Ch 5, Dtr together. Ch 3. sl st in first ch. Dtr together. Ch 5. sl st in next stitch. Repeat 5 more times. Fasten Off.

Inner Petals

Ch 4. Sl st in first ch to form ring.

Ch 3 . Dc 7 times in ring. (8 dc)

Ch 1. sc in same st. 2 sc in each stitch around. sl st in first sc. (15 sc)

Ch 3. DC in each stitch around. (15 dc)

Ch 5, Dtr together. Ch 3. sl st in first ch. Dtr together. Ch 5. sl st in next stitch. Repeat 4 more times. Fasten off.

Inside buds (I think they are buds anyway)

Ch 3. Sl st in first ch.

Ch  3. Sl st in 2nd ch from hook. Sc in ring. *Ch 2. Sl st in second ch. Sc in ring. Repeat from * 8 more times. Fasten off.

Sew the three layers together to finish the flower.

Napkin Ring

Ch 6. Sc in 2nd stitch from hook. Sc in each st. Turn. (5 sc)

Ch 1. Sc in same st. Sc in rest of stitches. (5 sc). Repeat 10 times.  Fasten off.

Sew the two ends together to form a ring then sew on the flower.

Here’s what it looks like when completed.

I think that these could also be made using off-white or gold colored yarn. And the buds could be made using beads (either silver, white, or gold depending on the flower color you use). I didn’t have any beads that would work for it when I was making it but I think they would work out even better than the crocheted bit.

Thanks for reading!
