Difficulty

Our pattern is intermediate in difficulty, requiring some crochet skills and familiarity with specific stitches and techniques. Beginners may encounter challenges with the Afghan Stitch technique, which involves inserting the hook through the yarn in a detailed manner. Maintaining even tension and consistent stitch size while working with the Afghan Stitch can be a challenge, especially for beginners. However, with practice and video tutorials, this technique can be learned and mastered over time. Our pattern provides specific instructions for each row and a video tutorial that can support you in making the flower.

Gauge

The gauge of the crocheted Pink Champion Flower is not specified. However, you can adjust your hook size or tension to achieve your desired gauge. Keep in mind that the gauge can vary depending on the individual crocheter, so it’s important to customize it to your own crocheting style. Experimenting with different hook sizes and yarn weights can help you achieve your desired size and appearance for your Pink Champion Flower.

Stitches and Abbreviation

  • ch – chain
  • ss – slip stitch
  • tr – treble crochet
  • dc – double crochet
  • sc – single crochet
  • hdc – half double crochet

Special Stitches

Afghan Stitch:

There are two parts to each row of any Afghan stitch: the forward and the return, also known as the “forward pass” and the “return pass”.

Forward Pass:

  • Chain 16 stitches for your foundation chain. (Because Afghan stitches require you to pull loops up through existing stitches, you need to start with a foundation row.)
  • Insert your hook in the second chain (ch) from the hook. (Begin counting stitches from the stitch directly below the loop on your hook.)
  • Yarn over (yo) the hook and draw your yarn through the chain stitch. (You should have two loops on your hook).
  • Insert your hook in the next chain and repeat the preceding step in each chain across the foundation chain. (Your hook is now loaded up with loops. This is known as drawing up the loops. You should have 16 loops — one for each chain stitch in your foundation chain. The first half of your foundation row of Afghan stitch is complete.)
  • Yarn over (yo) the hook and draw your yarn through 1 loop on the hook. (Work with only one loop in this step).
  • Yarn over the hook and draw your yarn through the next 2 loops on the hook. (Repeat this step across the row until 1 loop remains on the hook. You have successfully worked the Afghan stitch across your foundation row. One loop remains on your hook and counts as the first stitch of the next row).
  • Insert your hook behind the next vertical bar in the row below. (Don’t work into the vertical bar directly below the loop on your hook).
  • Yarn over (yo) the hook and draw the yarn through the stitch. (Repeat the preceding step and this step in each vertical bar across the row until you reach the next-to-last stitch).
  • Insert your hook under the last 2 vertical bars at the end of the row. (You use these bars to finish the row).
  • Yarn over the hook and draw your yarn through both vertical bars. (You should have 16 loops on your hook. The first half of this row is complete).

Return Pass:

  • Yarn over (yo) the hook and draw your yarn through 1 loop on the hook. (Be sure to work with only one loop).
  • Yarn over the hook and draw your yarn through the next 2 loops on the hook. (Repeat this step across the row until 1 loop remains on the hook. You’ve finished the second row).
  • Continue working rows of basic Afghan stitches until you feel comfortable with this technique.
  • Work a slip stitch under each vertical bar across the last row to finish the item.
