Christmas Flower Ornament
Small amounts of red, green and white worsted wt yarn
Size G, H, or I hook (I used an "I" hook making the ornament measure 4 1/2")
Ribbon for bow
Row 1: sc in next 2 sc, *( 3 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc, skip 2 sc, sc in next 2 sc). Rep from * , Ch 1, turn
Row 2: Skip first sc, sc in next 2 sc, *(3 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc, skip 2 sc, sc in next 2 sc). Rep from * to within last 2 sc. Dec over last 2 sc, change color, ch 1 turn.
Rows 3 thru 10: Repeat row 2 working 2 rows of each color.
Sew the two short ends together. Thread yarn through center sc of each 3 sc group (each point) and pull tightly and fasten. Stuff with filler lightly and thread yarn through center sc of each point and pull tightly, fasten and pull yarn through center a couple of times and pull tightly to form a dimple on each side. Add bow and ribbon for hanging.
To make a flat ornament, instead of stuffing with filler, slip over a CD or cardboard or anything sturdy.
