For the tinier crochet flower we first crochet 6 petals and then a stamen. Then the petals are sewn all around to the stamp and thus your tinier crochet flower is already finished.
First we want to crochet 6 petals for the crochet flower. There for we always start at the tip and crochet in spiral rounds with only double crochet stitches (UK!). The crocheted petals are not filled but simply folded flat. That they buckle a bit is normal and also desired. The lower side of the petals is left open and will be sewn flat to the stamen later.
Now we crochet a stamen for the crochet flower in spiral rounds with only double crochet stitches (UK!). For this we just crochet a sphere, fill it and close it at the end.
Finally the petals are folded flat and sewn to the stamen with the thread ends. They are evenly placed around the equator of the stamen. It´s easy when always sewing the opposite petals one after the other. Subsequently all thread ends are secured and weaved in inside. So your crochet flower is already finished.
