I saw a cute poncho with flowers (motifs?) on it but the flower petals were done in bunches of loops,not chains.  Has anyone seen flowers made like that and, if so, can you tell me how to do it?

If it's what I'm picturing, there are little loom kits you can buy at Hobby Lobby to make these flowers.
I'm sorry I can't think of the name, but have seen them in the knitting needle/crochet hook aisle.

Thanks Aliciasjoy!
The poncho was crocheted so I just assumed that it was just some sort of crochet stitch(magic!) that I didn't know yet!  I will check out the loom thing at Michaels (unfortunately, no Hobby Lobby close by)!

Here's a pic I found of it.  Is this what it was?

If so, at least you'll have a name when you go into the store.

i'm pretty sure you can do this by using a piece of hard plastic (credit card or similar).  do a sc, but after pulling the yarn through the stitch, pull it around the plastic to make the loop, then continue with the sc as normal.

something like this me thinks:

i'd imagine if you worked sc in rounds with this stitch, you'd get the same sort of stuff...

Thanks Nevadanteater for the link!  I believe that is the look I'm going for.  I will practice it!  Smiley

You can use the loop stitch to make the petals... which point you can make your loops as big as you want them by adjusting what you make your loop around  - mostly I think you would use just a finger or two to make the loops in the loop stitch but you can bigger if you want.
Chances are that was how they were done - without looking at it that is the best advice I have.  Loop stitch.
