This comprehensive photo tutorial pattern (9 pages, 60 photos, 5.3MB) will show you how to make this lovely realistic Mandevilla flower. The flower base and petals are made in one piece with no sewing or piecing together needed. Instructions also include finishing and adding a stem wire.
Also included is a condensed text-only excerpt of just the written instructions from the tutorial. The numbered steps correspond to the photos of the tutorial. Printed paper copies sent by USPS mail are not available.
You will need a PDF reader such as Adobe Reader or PDF-XChange to view or print the files. Printed paper copies sent by USPS mail are not available.
Materials: DMC Cebelia crochet thread or other tightly wound thread, appropriately sized hook & optionally a 2nd hook one size bigger. Recommended: Size 10 thread & 1.75mm hook for the base & an optional 2.0mm hook for the petals (flower approx 3.5" across) OR Size 20 thread & 1.5mm hook for the base & a 1.75mm hook for the petals (flower approx 3" across) OR Size 30 thread & 1.25mm hook for the base & a 1.5mm hook for the petals (flower approx 2.5" across)
The shank of the hook needs to be able to hold up to 13 loops. If your hooks don't allow this, or you find it too crowded, consider getting a cro-tat hook (2mm to use with size 10 thread). PRYM is a brand that is inexpensive & widely available online. It's unlikely to be an issue with size 20 thread & smaller.
You need the following skills: magic ring chain slip stitch single crochet controlling tension accuracy & attention to detail patience
This flower uses a Tunisian Crochet stitch which is fully explained step by step and no prior experience with Tunisian Crochet is needed. This tutorial is appropriate for the intermediate to experienced crocheter.
