Stuffing

- begin, beginning
- bind off
- double crochet
- double ring: prevents holes
at beginning of work: to make a
double ring wrap yarn around
your finger two times, remove
resulting loops from finger and
start crocheting desired number
of stitches into these loops.
Holding the stitches firmly with
one hand, pull on the yarn tail
with the other. One after the
other both loops will drawn
closed. Insert a marker at the
beginning/end of the round.
hdc - half double crochet
m2
- make 2, i.e. make two single
crochets into one stitch
sc
- single crochet
sc2tog - decrease 1 stitch

Finished size

also this pattern is amigurumi style,
which is spiral rounds, keep
crocheting in the round without
joining!

You need to know how to make a single
crochet and how to increase / decrease
a stitch

Yarn requirements

Use whatever yarn U like, try
everything you can find. You might
result in something very adorable.
I use catania from Schachenmayr. It is
a 100 % cotton yarn and a typical yarn
to make potholders from.

Needles

Use the needle size to obtain gauge
given on your yarn. If you find your
tension to be very loose try using a
needle size smaller. It is important to
make tight stitches due to a firm and
substantial form of your doll.
You will only stuff the stems and
pistils in this project. Don’t overstuff
because the stems will let stuffing
shine through easily.
The finished size of your amigurumi
flower pot goes hand in hand with the
yarn and needle you choose. However
using a 3.5 mm needle you will receive
flowers app. 8“ / 20cm high and max. 4“ /
10cm wide.

Final Tip

Use a row counter or something else to
keep track with your finished rounds.

to make a gradient, add different

To attach the leaves simply flatten
them just like described for the petals
and sew them to their stems, about half
way between pistil and end of stem.
Now you should have all three flowers
sewn together - - it is time to make a
lawn.
This isn’t a “real” pattern, it’s quite
free form but I give you what I did and
hope it works for you as well.

Assembling the Flowers
First sew the petals to the pistils:

Lawn

Therefore flatten the petals (and
leaves later as well) simply by folding
along the increases resp. decreases,
they should be on top of each other and
therefore the petal / leave should fold
by itself. For attaching them to the
pistil simply lay them flat and close to
the middle of pistil and sew them.

First continue at ends of each stem:
1
m2 in every sc
2
(m2, sc1) until end of row
Now you will need to attach all
flowers together. I hope the picture
next page clarifies what I mean. There
will be stitches of every flower that
you don't crochet anymore, so you
continue to crochet around the first
flower about two thirds - then add the

I've sewn them where yellow and green
meet hope the picture next column
makes clear what I mean.

also I added bobbles of different sizes
wherever I liked to add some texture to
the lawn, I think it resembles some kind
of grass.

second flower and crochet another two
thirds around, add the third flower and
you got all flowers 'bond' together.
in this third row increase like
following: (sc2, m2) till end of whole
row (which is all three flowers for
each about two thirds of the
circumference)

Now we want to make a ball of earth,
that the lawn will be sewn to and that
will help our flowers to stay up in the
pottery.
This earth ball is supposed to fit into a
bulbous pot, you might need to change
the pattern, that I give here, see next
page.
what I did:
the Ball of Earth
1
make 6 sc into dr
2
(m2) x6
3
(m2, sc1) x6
4
(m2, sc2) x6
5
(m2, sc3) x6
6
sc2, (m2, sc4) x5, m2, sc2
7
(m2, sc5) x6
8
sc3, (m2, sc6) x5, m2, sc3
9
(m2, sc7) x6
make 6 rows (sc54)
16
(sc2tog, sc7) x6
17
sc3, (sc2tog, sc6) x5, sc2tog, sc3
make 5 rows (sc42)
23
(sc2tog, sc5) x6
24
(sc2tog, sc4) x6
25
(sc2tog, sc3) x6
26
(sc2tog, sc2) x6
27
(sc2tog, sc1) x6
stuff
28
sc2tog x6
BO

now increase every other row like
follows:
(sc3, m2) in the fourth row
(sc4, m2) in the fifth row
(sc5, m2) in the sixth row
and so on until you have the lawn size
you desire.
When you reached your desired width
stop increasing and make two more rows.
NOTE: when being "between two
flowers" (i.e.. in the valley of a row) I
decreased a few stitches, also I found
to decrease with dc instead of sc to be
quite useful, since the row itself would
become more even, so your lawn will
become more of a circle than this
roller coaster rows (hope you can
understand what I mean)

what you might change:

ö

a very useful tip: don't forget to stuff
the full length of your stems before
you sew them to the earth ball,
otherwise you a) can un-sew it from the
earth or b) like I did, push stuffing
through the little holes between the
crochet stitches very carefully

if your flower pot has a bigger
circumference at the bottom, you might
need to increase one or two more rows.
the circle made should be almost as big
as the bottom of your flower pot, but
not equally big or even bigger. It will
stretch when stuffed. Then just make
several rows until the height of your
crochet will be as high as the pot you
use. If your flower pot has a tapering
form you also should increase one row
in the middle of your crochet (six
increases evenly spread) or one row
every third part of your flower pot.
When reached the desired height just
decrease six stitches every row (see row
16 and following).

Now all that is left to do is push some
florists wire into the stems. Start at
pistils of flowers and stick it through
the whole length of the stem right into
the earth ball. Bend top endings of wire
a little so you can screw it into the
pistils carefully and it won’t come out
by itself.
I needed three to four pieces of wire per
flower, but it depends on the strength
of your wire.

You're done!

Now you’re really finished
Don’t water it, it will bloom anyhow

Diana

How to sew the flowers including the
lawn to the earth ball?
just do it!
Use leftovers from lawn yarn and seam
around.
BO and hide yarn ends inside.
