Materials for crochet Dahlia

  • Yarn-four colors,( light and dark blue, cream, green)
  • Hook- 2.5mm
  • Flower rod – 16 inches long x 0.08 inches diameter (40cm x 2mm)
  • Iron wire – 0.02 inches diameter (0.5mm)
  • Darning Needle

Difficulty

Our pattern is at an intermediate level, requiring some crochet skills. The most challenging part of the process might be working with front and back loops only, as well as using the Afghan stitch technique. However, we encourage you to try even harder patterns because we have our videos available as a helpful guide for beginners to enhance their skills in crochet, making it an achievable challenge.

Stitches and Abbreviation

  • ch – chain stitch
  • ss – slip stitch
  • sc – single crochet
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • dc – double crochet
  • Afghan sc – Afghan stitch single crochet (a variation of single crochet worked in the vertical bars)
  • FLO – Front loops only
  • BLO – Back loops only
  • sk – Skip
  • sc2tog – Single crochet two stitches together (decrease)

Special Stitches

The unfinished double crochet puff stitch is created by starting a double crochet stitch but leaving the last loop on the hook unfinished. This creates a puffy texture in the petals of the flower.

Working in the front loops only (FLO) or back loops only (BLO) creates different textures and helps to create defined edges and shapes in the pattern. By working in the front or back loops only, you can create ridges or raised areas on the surface of the petals.

The Afghan stitch is a technique used to create a dense and textured fabric. It involves inserting the hook from right to left under the vertical bars of the stitches instead of the traditional method. This stitch is used in certain rows to add depth and texture to the petals and leaves.
