The flower is very easy to make once you understand how to fold the petels. Took me some time before I got it but after that it was peanuts making them.



English notations
Yarn: Schachenmayr Catania (but the pattern works with any kind of yarn)
Crochet hook nr. 3 (Europe)

Chain 6 and close with a slip stitch.

Chain 3, crochet 3 treble crochet in the ring, chain 3.
Turn around
1 tr in first tr, 1 tr in the next 2 tr, chain 3

Turn around

Fold the petal backwards and crochet *1 tr in the ring
3 more tr in the ring, chain 3

turn around

1 tr in first tr, 1 tr in the next 2 tr, chain 3*
fold backwards again and repeat everything between the *

Repeat untill you have 7 petals, close with slip stitch.

Stick a pretty brad through the hole and glue a magnet on the back. Done!

I adore the way the centres co-ordinate with the yarn. Thank you for the pattern too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thank you all  Smiley

I got the brads in a Dutch craft store. I also made a few with epoxy brads which are also nice. Will post a picture of those later this week.
