Complete a slip knot, Chain 4, join with SL into the first chain to form a circle.  CH1, (count this as your first SC) SC x 5 more into the circle, SL ST into the top of first ST to join = 6SC ST

ROUND 1

(*SCX 1, DC X 3, into same ST, SC X 1 into same ST) , this completes your first petal,  skip next ST repeat petals around until you have 5 petals.  SL ST into first ST to join.  Fasten off and sew in ends with darning needle.

For the black centre, I used a few different types of ideas!  Black buttons are the easiest and usually, you will have few lying around somewhere in your sewing kit.

To pin to your clothing, I used a safety pin which was very easy to attach and un-attach!
