MARGARITA THE FLOWER

Here I leave the Margarita pattern, a nice flower that, besides being a great playmate this spring, can be the ideal gift to decorate the house (especially for those people who are not good at caring plants 😉 )

To crochet Margarita I used Cotton Nature 3.5 yarn and a 3mm crochet hook. For the pot I used one ball of Prague yarn and 7mm crochet hook (you can also do it with a fine fabric yarn). Both are from Hilaturas LM.

MATERIALS:

● 100% Cotton yarn: dark green, mustard, off-white, orange (and some remains of turquoise – only if you do not use security eyes – pink and black to embroider the face).

● Crochet hook according to the thickness of the yarn used. In this pattern used a 3 mm crochet hook (and 7 mm for the pot).

● Black safety eyes (you do not need it if you make the eyes embroidered)

● Toy stuffing.

● Yarn needle.

● Scissors, sewing pins and stitch markers (if you don´t have  you can use a thread, a hairpin, a safety pin, etc.).

ABBREVIATIONS:

● Mr – Magic ring.    

● Sc – Single crochet.      

● Ch – Chain.   

● St / sts – Stitch / stitches.       

● Sl st – Slip stitch.

● Hdc – Half double crochet.

● Dc – Double crochet.           

● Inc – Single crochet increase (2sc in one st).          

● Inv dec – Invisible single crochet decrease (2sc together, front loops only).               

● Rnd – Round.     

● [nº] – The number inside the brackets is the total stitches of the round. Ex: [12] means that in total, at the end of the round, there must be 12 stitches.

● (…) xN – Repeat the instructions between the brackets N times. Ex: (1sc, 1inv st) x6, means that we should weave 1sc, 1inv dec 6 times.
