Simple Crochet Flower

I used these to decorate the ankles of my first Socks of Doom during Sock Wars 2006.

Use a crochet hook appropriate for the size of your yarn (F or G with worsted).
Ch 4 leaving a tail 3-4 inches. Join with sl st to form loop.
(Ch 3, Sc 1 into loop) 4 times.
Ch 3. Join with sl st to base of first ch 3. (You now have five petals.
Fasten off, leaving a tail 3-4 inches.
Using the two tail ends, attach flower to garment. Pull both ends up to the front of the flower through the center. Knot. Trim ends to approximately 1/4 inch. Fray ends to fluff the center of the flower.
