First pick a yarn and the appropriate hook for that yarn. I used a J hook and a nice grey 4 ply yarn.
|Chain 1 normal chain stitch and 2 very tight chain stitches|
|Crochet 10 Double Stitches in the normal chain stitch|
|Put your hook in the first double stitch, (indicated above)|
|Do a slip stitch, just pull the yarn through the double stitch and the yarn on your hook|
|You get a lovely circle.|
|In the first Stitch crochet one half stitch, 5 double stitches and 1 half stitch, then in the next stitch crochet on single stitch. There should be eight stitches left to work with which leaves you with five petals total.|
|And there you have one simple flower. add a button, or a border or both.|
