Hi all,

I am new to crochet, & am trying PlanetJune's daffodil pattern - http://www.planetjune.com/blog/free-crochet-patterns/daffodils/ - for my third project.  

I am having trouble with the leaves - I can make the magic ring no problem, and crochet right through to the end, but when I fold the completed leaf in half it is curved rather than pointy at the end ... I've taken a pic so you can see what I mean -  http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v20/Devli/Stunted.jpg.  It also appears to be rather stunted!

I figure I am going wrong somewhere, but am not sure where.  If anyone could point me in the right direction it'd be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Sus

It looks like the petal in your picture is flipped wrong side out. it's easier to crochet something small wrong side out, but be sure to flip it right side out or it will look funky. http://www.innerchildcrochet.com/resources/how_to_design/working_in_the_round.html This site has pictures down towards the bottom of the page of the right side and wrong side of crocheting in the round. Try flipping it right side out and see if it helps.

Thank you for your help, it looks so much better the flipped the other side out (which I'm sure is the wrong way, but still!).  - I never would have thought of that.
