How to crochet a Anemone

Its name means flower of the wind perhaps for the short flowering period or for the delicacy of its petals. Beautiful lively flower that delights every garden. So I liked that I wanted to recreate this crocheted flower. There are so many different varieties and shapes of anemone, I really liked this with its beautiful colors. Let's go
straight to the explanation.

Explanation of the flower:



Start 6 chains in round and inside to do:
1 lap: 12 single crochet.
2 lap: 3 triple crochet in one point for 2 times
  Turn the work and make: 1 triple crochet, 2 triple crochet at one point, 3 triple crochet in one point for 2 times, 2 triple crochet in one point, 1 triple crochet.
  Turn the work again and do it: 2 single crochet, 1 half double crochet, two double crochet  in one point, one triple crochet, two triple crochet at one point twice, one triple crochet, two double crochet in one point, a half double crochet, 2 single crochet.
Get small points down to the circle of single crochet and repeat the same for a total of 6 petals.

Explanation of the frangi pistillo:

Start 7 chains and close in round and inside to make: 5 chains and in these make 4 single crochet then a single crochet in the chainring. Repeat the same for a total of 12 times.

Explanation of the chalice:

Start 5 chains in the round and inside to do:
  1 lap: 12 double crochet.
2 laps: 5 chains and in these make: 2 single crochet, 2 half  double crochet, skip a base point, 1 slip stitch. Repeat the same for a total of 6 times.

  Explanation of the bud:

Start 5 chains in the round and inside to do:
1 lap: 12 double crochet.
2 lap: 18 double crochet (increase one point every 2 points)
3 lap: decrease one point every 2 points.
4 revolutions: Insert the plastic wire (previously cut and bent 2-3 times on the tip to form a ball, help with a clamp) and close the rim at small points.


Now cut the iron wire of the length that you need according to your composition, then wrap a bit of black cotton several times to form a kind of ball, then bend the stem to lock the cotton (always help with a clamp), this will be the central pistil that will pivot and hold it all. Now put in order: the frangible pistil, the flower and the cup without sewing it and then work around the stem for the chains to dress it with cotton. Remember to keep those 3-4 cm stems uncovered that will be what you will have to put in the jar. Same procedure for the bud. If the petals do not remain beautiful, you have to fix them a bit, much depends on the type of cotton you use. Now let's go to the leaves that I made of 2 different sizes to give more naturalness to the whole.

Explanation of the large leaf:


Start 35 chains and do these: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 double crochet, 16 triple crochet, 3 double crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 single crochet, resume identical to the other side. Now cut a piece of zinc plated wire of the length of the leaf plus about 4-5 cm in height and work around the single crochet. Spread the leaf well to give it the right shape and twist the remaining iron wire to form the jacket that will serve to insert the leaf into the jar.
Explanation of small leaf
Start 25 chains and do this: 3 single crochet, 3 haldìf double crochet, 3 double crochet, 6 triple crochet, 3 double crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 single crochet, equal to the other side. Continue with the same procedure as the other leaf.

Make all the leaves you need to complete your composition. The larger ones try to put them in the middle near the buds and the smaller ones a little more externally in order to give more naturality to the whole set. I always hope to have explained everything to the best and to have helped you create your crocheted flower jar that will color a corner of your home. Hi everyone and next.
