Hook G, worsted weight yarn (I used a cotton)

(This is the same stitch as my favorite crochet dish cloth.  I love how it makes a scalloped border without having to crochet around the edge. The dish cloths are also super simple to make and make a great handmade gift)

Row 1: Chain 16, double crochet, chain 2, single crochet into 4th chain from hook, * Skip next 3 chains, work 2 double crochets, chain 2, single crochet in next chain stitch*,Repeat the stitches between * * to the end of the row.

Row 2: Chain 2 turn, double crochet, chain 2, single crochet in 1st chain 2 space, 2 double crochets, chain 2, single crochet into each remaining Chain 2 spaces across to end.

How to crochet a flower

Crochet a huge flower to make it extra fun! I used this crochet flower pattern. I added one extra row to make it even bigger by repeating the last row in the pattern. Any big flower will do. You can check out these crochet flowers patterns too.
