Here’s one way I like to use crochet for maximum “bang for the buck” in my knits.
Written instructions for working the crocheted flower:
CH 4, SL into first chain, making a ring.
CH 2, 10 DC into center of ring. Close the ring by SL into the 2nd chain you made at the beginning of this round.
(Change color here, if you like.)
Pull up a loop in new color.
*SL into next stitch, CH2.
4 DC into next stitch, CH 2.*
Repeat between the *s for 5 petals total.
Finish by SL into 1st SL of the round. Break yarn, weave in ends (or just tie them off and cut them, since it is unlikely that the back of the flower will show.)
Information on things you’ll see in this video:
The bulky yarn I’m using to demonstrate is Berroco Peruvia Quick.
The sweater on the mannequin is my Zasio Sweater Coat, pattern + video tutorial.
The nail color I’m wearing is by Essie, color “Go Overboard”.
