Materials:

  1. yarn in one or more colors.  I used Caron Simply Soft in “Gold” and “Mango”
  2. crochet hook suitable for your yarn.  I used an H (5.0 mm) hook.
  3. yarn needle
  4. scissors
  5. some kind of stem material (optional)  I tied mine to a stick, temporarily, for the photo.  I will have to find a better solution!

Stitches (US terms):

  • sl st: slip stitch
  • ch: chain
  • sc: single crochet
  • hdc: half double crochet
  • dc: double crochet
  • tc: triple crochet
  • Picot: ch3, sl st into 3rd ch from hook
  • sc3tog: single crochet 3 together (or work an invisible decrease over three stitches)

Directions:

  1. in a magic circle, ch6 (counts as tc, ch2) *tc, tc, ch2* five times, join with a sl st to 3rd ch of starting ch6, ch4, sl st into magic circle (put hook through circle, bring yarn in front of work and pull a loop through the center of the circle and through the loop on your hook), do not fully tighten circle.  You have a wheel shape with 6 pairs of tc separated by 6 ch2 spaces.  The petals will be done up the 2nd tc of a pair, across the ch2 space, and do the 1st tc of the next pair. The square bracket shapes indicate where the petals will go.  The star marks the ch4s with which you started and ended the round.IMG_6485
  2. ch1, sc into magic circle between the two ch4s (count as tcs).  Work six petals as follows, beginning with starting ch4: up the 1st tc (sc2, hdc2, dc2) in the ch2 space (dc2, tc2, dc2,) down the next tc (dc2, hdc2, sc2) sc into the magic circle between the tc pair.  On the last petal, instead of sc into the circle, join with a sl st to the starting sc.  Note that you have made 6 sc into the center circle.  The round joined at the center of the flower on the side closest to the star.
  3.  sl st back 1st.  Ch1, starting in the same st, *sc3tog working up along the edge of the petal, sc7, 2sc in the 1st tc, picot, 2sc in the 2nd tc, sc7* repeat for the other petals, ending by sl st into the starting sc3tog.  If you are changing colors for the corona, end, leaving a tail for sewing.  Note that you made six sc3tog.  The round joined at the center of the flower on the side closest to the star.  IMG_6488
  4. If you are changing colors, join with a sl st into the same st where you ended the last round.  Ch1, turn work around, sc into the same st, in the other five sc3togs, work 2sc, sc, 2sc, sc, 2sc.  Join round with a sl st into the starting st.
  5. Sc in each st around, join with a sl st to starting st (9)
  6. Ch1, (sc 2, 2sc) three times, join with a sl st to starting st (12)
  7. Ch1, sc in each st around, join with a sl st to starting st (12)
  8. Ch1, sc in each st around, join with a sl st to starting st (12)
  9. Ch1, (sc2, ch1) in each st around, join with a sl st to starting st, end, leaving a tail to sew in
  10. Use tail to shape flower if desired (I made a few stitches to more closely connect the base of the corona to the petals,) sew in ends

Note: For a longer corona, work additional rounds of 12 sts after round 12.  For a very short corona, skip rounds 7 and 8.  You can work round 9 in a different color if desired.
