round four


An edging of colour completes our mystery motif, the ‘Hawaiian Flower motif.’

Round four:

Work a round of double crochet in a contrasting colour as such:

Work 9 double crochet up one side of the petal, chain 3, work 9 double crochet down the other side of the petal, work 1 double crochet into chain 1 space of round two, continue around, join with a slip stitch to end.

Fasten off.

I am joining my Hawaiian Flowers as I go. 


You’ll find my tutorial for ‘joining as you go’ here, which you can adapt to join the Hawaiian Flowers.

Tomorrow I’ll show you my progress, they do look pretty all joined together!

  1. This is so painfully adorable I might die if I don’t learn how to crochet now!

  2. Beautiful! Have just finished my first and about to start the second. SO glad I found your blog. x PS thanks again for sharing.

  3. Love these. Haven’t seen anything like them. Will have to make some.

    Can’t wait to see them all joined together.

  4. Very cool. Love learning new motifs. Thanks so much for showing us. Lots of fun!

  5. Thank you so much for this lovely flower. Already working on them. I just finished my hexagon blanket (it is on my weblog) and this is a great new project to start with. Greetings from the Netherlands.

  6. Thanks so much Sarah. The day by day thing has been such a cute way to teach the flower.

  7. Thanks so much for this gorgeous flower, it’s just lovely, I will definitely give this a try ASAP. I’ve enjoyed the way you have kept everyone in suspense for the next step!

  8. I love your hawaiian flowers! they are just so much fun for the eye!
    I try to make them but for some reason they don’t come out stright like yours… :c/ they keep folding in… any idea why?!

  9. Absolutely lovely! And thank you Sarah for sharing your passion.

  10. Oh for goodness sake I missed it! Thanks for the instructions though. I’ll be trying these out tomorrow. 🙂

  11. Thanks for this tutorial. I have just finished my first flower and it was pretty easy to make up. My only problem is that I think is that my yarn was too thin or my needle was too large as it looks a little loose compared to yours. I don’t know the size of the yarn as it was what I found in a garage sale once but the needle was size 4.
    What sized yarn and needle did you use?

  12. Hello Sara, my name is Gabriela and I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    I enjoy very much handmade things, crocheting, knitting, painting, modelling, …. and so on! Thanks very much for your Blog, I admire your beautiful work, and I´ve followed today your tutorial for the hawaian flower (I love crochet flowers!!), and if I can, I´ll also try to learn to join motivs together …. wish me luck, I´ll keep you posted, by the way, where are you from? Greetings from the South, I´m knitting with cottom thread, now it´s impossible to use wool, too hot in the summer!
    Bye, Gaby
    PD: sorry for my amateur english …..

  13. WOW!!!

    but I’ll keep practicing 🙂

    You make beautifull things


  14. Love the flowers. Found your web site while browsing “Sewtakeahike”. I have tried making flowers but am stumped on round #2….it looks to me the round is “single crochet” but directions are for “double”. Doing double crochet does not look like picture. Any input would be appreciated.

    I have been looking at all your postings. You are one talented artist!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful work.


  15. @ Dee Cwiok

    – Actually you are correct, the double crochet is supposed to be in single crochet. The instructions on here are written in Australian terminology. Hope that helps. 🙂

  16. Thank you for this wonderful flower. A long-time dear friend of our passed away a week ago and his wife wants to have a Hawaiin rememberance service (it was his request before he died for something happy and not sad). These Hawaiin flowers are perfect!

  17. New to the web. Thanks so much for this wonderful flower. Thanks for sharing.
