Put 1 HDC in the next two chains ( 1 hdc in each ) total 2 HDC’s .
Work 1 DC in the next three stitches ( one in each ) so total of 3 DC’s.
Now work 5 TC’S in the next 5 stitches ( one in each ) so we have total of 5 TC’s.
After the final TC , chain one and work reverse single crochet or crab stitch and go all the way to the beginning of the work( i.e, starting form sc) and at the end put a chain of 3 ( chain of 3 is for the stsarting of row 2). The crab stitch gives the pattern the kind of rimmed look which is the main thing.
This completes the first petal and row 1.
Row 2: (extra care needed for tthis row J) work 1 sc in the second chain form the hook , work another sc in the next . Total 2 sc’s.
Work a HDC on the previous petals 1st sc and another on the next. ( which is worked behind the crab stitch ). Total 2hdc’s.
Now work 3 dc ‘s ( one in each in the next 3 stitches ) . total of 3dc’s.
Work 1 TC in the next stitch and 2 TC ‘s in the next same stitch and again work 2 TC’s in the next stitch , total of 5 TC’s .
At the end work crab stitch and go back to the beginning of the petal . At the end of crab stitch work 3 chains , which for the starting of the row3.
Row 3 – Row 10 : repeat row 2. Each row has a total of 2 sc’s , 2 hdc’s , 3 dc’s , 5 tc’s . Now you have a total of 10 petals.
After row 10 fasten off the yarn ,leave a little yarn about 10cms to sew the 10th petal to the first petal .
But before sewing the edges , take a tapestry needle and add yarn, don’t tie a knot to the end of the yarn added to the needle, leave it free and just pass the yarn at the centre of the flower at the edges through all the petals, make sure the yarn you needled has enough length coming out of both the edges.
Pull the yarn from both the ends till you have that magical closed spiral centre !
Now sew the edges of the 1st and 10th petal .
pull the thread after sewing the edges till the hole in the centre is closed.
Turn the flower back and tie a tight knot maybe 2 or more knots to secure .
Now you should have spiral flower in your hand !!! J
