Since we are so close to Ramadan our month of fasting, we’ll have our Eid after that, that I decided to make series of patterns for this occasions. Today I’ll be sharing two simple and easy crochet flowers to decorate you gifts and make the wrapping more appealing. All you need to do is choose a thin yarn or cotton thread with color that suits your gifts wrapping papers.
Skill level: Easy
Any kind of thin yarn or cotton thread will work best with this pattern (choose color that goes with your wrapping papers)
Crochet hook with suitable size
MR – Magic ring
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
There’ll be two flowers, flower 1 and 2.
Rnd 1: MR, ch 2 (count as hdc), 11 hdc in the ring, sl st in 2nd ch from the beginning chains. (12 hdc)
Rnd 2: *Ch 3, skip next st, sl st next st* repeat 6 times. (6 chains spaces)
Rnd 3: *Sl st next ch space, ch 2, 3 dc same ch space, ch 2, sl st same ch space* repeat 6 times. (6 petals)
Rnd 4: *Sl st in next sl st, ch 3, sc next 3 sts, ch 3, sl st next sl st* repeat 6 times. FO. (6 petals)
Rnd 1: MR, 8 sc in the ring. Sl st in first sc. (8 sc)

Wrap your gifts with the wrapping paper and use the same yarn to tie it around instead of the usual ribbon. Place your crochet flower in the position you like then either tie or glue it. Your gift is ready!
