One of the flowers I had made I called "Ball center flower", and I couldn´t find an easy pattern for something similar, so I made a smaller version of a flower I had designed in the past for my Garden Baby Mobile.
It is not the exact same flower, of course, but it looks similar as it has the puffy center as well. It only has a round of petals, but still, I think I would have done this one instead, if only I had written the patern before!
This flower can be made with two diferent colors, or just one like the one in the photo below.
Ball Center Flower
Start with center color:
Working in spiral. Mark first stitch of every round if you wish, moving the stitch marker every round to keep track of first stitch.
Rnd 1: sc 6 times in adjustable loop (6 sc)
Rnd 2: [2 sc in ea sc ] arnd (12 sc)
Rnd 3: [sc in ea sc] arnd (12 sc)
Stuff a little if you wish, you can use a piece of the same yarn for this purpose.
Rnd 4: working in back loops only: [sc 2 tog] arnd (6 sc)
Now sew closed with tapestry needle.
Working in spiral.
Rnd 1: join yarn (same or diferent color, as you wish) on front loop of first sc of 3rd rnd of the flower center, working in front loops: [ch 2, skip 1 sc, sl on next sc] around, join with sl st. (6 ch2 sp)
Rnd 2: [sl st, ch 2, 2 dc, 1 tr, 2 dc, ch 2, sl st] in first ch2 sp and around, sl st on first sl st made. (6 petals)
F.O. Weave in all ends.
Update: other versions of this flower on this post
I hope you liked it!
