MAKING THE CENTER OF THE FLOWER
Ch 4 and sl st into beginning ch to form a ring. And ch 1.
SC 8 into center of ring (8 sts) Place a marker at beginning st and ch 1
Your working in one continuous round.
SC 2 into each st around (16 sts) sl to into beginning st, ch 1 and cut yarn. Leave enough of a tail to hide later.
MAKING THE PETALS OF THE FLOWER
Now switch to yellow yarn and attach it to any of the sc spaces and *ch 6 and DC into the 3rd ch from hook.
HDC in next st, SC in next st, sl st into last st.
Then sl st into the following sc on your circle.*
Repeat for a total of 16 petals.
Then Sl st into beginning st and ch 1 & cut yarn.
MAKING THE STEM
Change colors to green and attach it to any back of any petal (to hide it)
and chain 40 or 45 if yarn is thicker or book your reading is long in length. (This is with regular size paper back in mind.) and on your 40th ch pull yarn to leave a loop open to attach the tassel to.
MAKING THE TASSEL
Find something that is flat, or cut a piece of cardboard that measures 8 cms or 3 inches wide to wrap your yarn around.
Holding on to the tail, wrap your yarn around 10 times (5 times if using two strands of yarn) and cut your yarn on the same side where you started. Now same side cut along the wrapped yarn.
Now lay your yarn out flat and cut another piece of yarn. It’s better it be to long than to short, place in the center of the strings of yarn and use it to tie them together. Leave this tails at the top as you fold your tails in half.
Now cut another piece of string, again better to have to log than to short, and holding the string with one hand, wrap the yarn around about 4 or 5 times around the top of the tassel to make a head, not to tightly. Tie your string.
Now use your hook to feed these tails through the wrapped string you just tied to make the head.
Attach your original strings to the open chain you left before and tie them all together then feed those tails through the top connection
Cut tail ends to even them out and your done!
