How to Crochet a Puff Stitch Flower Blanket Afghan - Connect Crochet Flowers


This Crochet Flower Blanket was made with a G hook and Medium worsted yarn. You can use a larger hook and any type of yarn. Add as many of flowers as you would like. The flowers are about a few inches in size. I uploaded a video if you need more help.

Abbreviations:
ch=chain
sl st=slip stitch
sc=single crochet



Create a one flower first to get started. 

Rnd 1: Ch 2, work 6 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook, sl st to create a ring.

Rnd 2: Create first petal Ch 3, *Yarn over and insert hook in the same stitch, draw up loop, *Repeat for a total of 4 times of drawing up loop, yarn over and pull all loops on the hook, ch 4, sl st in the same stitch as the puff stitch, 

sc in the next stitch, **Ch 3, *Yarn over and insert hook in the hook in the same stitch, draw up loop, *Repeat for a total of 4 times of drawing up loop, yarn over and pull all loops on the hook, ch 4, sl st in the same stitch as the puff stitch, **Repeat for total of 6 petals for a flower, sl st in the beginning stitch. Now your first flower is made.

Now Create Two petals of the 6 petal flower, this will be connected to the first flower.

Rnd 1: Ch 2, work 6 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook, sl st to create a ring.
Ch 3, *Yarn over and insert hook in the same stitch, draw up loop, *Repeat for a total of 4 times of drawing up loop, yarn over and pull all loops on the hook, ch 4, sl st in the same stitch as the puff stitch, Make two petals.

Take the the last petal of the two petals made and don't sl st to complete, but connect the loop of that petal and pull it through the center back loop of one of the petals of the already made flower. (any petal of the flower works to connect)

With the connected 2nd petal, sl st and ch 4, sl st into the same stitch as the puff stitch flower of that two petal flower,

sc in the next stitch, ch 3, *Yarn over and insert hook in the same stitch, draw up loop, *Repeat for a total of 4 times of drawing up loop, yarn over and pull through all the loops, take that petal and pull it through the center of the back loop of the next petal of the other flower, sl st and ch 4, sl st into the same stitch of the puff stitch petal.
