What did you think of Flor? You did well from what I saw. Are you ready for Part 5?
Blodyn is Welsh for flower. She’s a puffy one and pretty easy once you understand how it fits together.
Options for your flower colours are, as the pattern is written (pink flower), or continue to the end of Round 2 using the centre colour (the yellow and purple flower), or change to a second petal colour at the start of Round 3, or even use the same colour for the first 3 rounds (I forgot to do the last two sorry)
The trickiest bit, and it’s not really tricky, is Round 3. You will be combining 6 stitches together making a “tr6tog” (dc6tog US folks). How you do it is, you begin a stitch as normal, but don’t do the last yarn over pull through 2 loops. Then you do that 5 more times in the next 5 sts. You’ll have a lot of loops on your hook – 7! You then do your last yo and pull through all 7 loops in one go. I pull the loops up a bit as I do the yo and it goes through pretty easy.
So on to the patterns – choose which terms you prefer :
