Crochet Pattern- Flower Trivet
Do a magic circle (look it up online) and chain five.
From here on out you can use a single, half double, or double crochet depending on how you want it to look. I think the single crochet is my favorite but it takes a lot longer.
Do a single (double or half double) crochet stitch in each stitch. When you get to the top of the loop (the 11th stitch) do three single (double or half double) stitches in the same stitch. When you finish a round slip stitch into the first stitch and chain one.
At this point I like to lay my trivet out and make sure it looks right. Fold all the petals the same direction. Then pick one petal and count six crochets from the point. Start there with new yarn.
Slip stitch into the stitch and chain one.
Do six single crochets and then three single crochets in the same stitch (point). Then another six single crochets down the other side.
Slip stitch into the other petal six single crochets from the point. Keep going on all petals. Slip stitch into the first stitch.
I use a tapestry needle and sew in between the stitches one direction about six stitches and then back six stitches. Then I cut off the yarn and put Fray Check on the ends.
This how you do the solid middle on the trivet.
Do a magic circle. Chain three.
Do 19 more double crochets in the magic circle.
