Loved making these, they were a lot of fun and fast to work up!  I will post all the pics here because they are not all on the pdf file.  These can be made for any project you would like to add them to, they are not JUST stitch markers 😀

Skill Level:  Easy/Beginner

Materials Needed: US Size 1 ½ or a 2.5mm crochet hook

Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread Size 10

Yarn Needle to weave in ends

Optional items:

Jump rings in any size you want

Buttons: any kind you love

Jewelry pliers

Easy Pattern to make up, be creative and have fun!

I made up 2 sets of these for gifts.  One set in picture has no buttons on it

and you can use these as stitch markers without adding anything to the flower

just by using the center of the flower as your ring.

I used two jump rings, one small one to attach to the large ring and flower.

Chain 4, slip stitch into the first chain to form a loop.

Chain 1, single crochet 5 times into ring, slip stitch into beginning chain.

Chain 3, double chain 2 times into the bottom of your chain 3, chain 3 and slip

stitch into the same space as you did your double chains.  One petal made.

Slip stitch into the next single chain.

**** Chain 3, double chain 2 times into the bottom of your chain 3, chain 3 and slip stitch into the same space as you did your double chains.

Slip Stitch into next single chain. ****

Repeat from****  to ****  around.  You should have 5 petals in all.

Weave in the ends.  If you want you can use one of the ends to use to put your button on, that is what I did.  Just leave the last end a bit longer so you have some more thread to work with if you need it.

Attach jump rings wherever you like, I just put mine at the tip of a petal through 2 pieces of thread to make it secure.
