This flower is made as six separate petals and a center. The petals are then crocheted together and the center is stitched on. If made using worsted weight yarn, the finished flower is approximately 10" across. To make a smaller flower, use a finer yarn such as sport weight or baby weight yarn along with a smaller crochet hook.
