How to crochet a Tulip

It is one of the most popular flowers in the gardens, loved by everyone for its simplicity and for the countless and colorful flowers that in spring decorate all flowerbeds. I put a little bit to create the typical shape of the tulip. In its simplicity it has created some difficulties but in the end I think I have succeeded and I want to share with you the explanation of this tulip to the crochet. The flower consists of 6 petals sewn at the base and molded with your hands to give it the right shape and helping you with small stitches on the sides of the petals to hold them still. Ok we start
.

Explanation of the petal



• Start 30 chains
• 1 lap: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 double crochet, 17 triple crochet, 1 double crochet, 1 half double crochet, 1 single crochet, resembling the opposite on the other side.
• 2 laps: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 double crochet, 22 triple crochet (every 3 points increase), 2 double crochet at one point below, 2 half double crochet jumps at one point below, 1 single crochet , to do the same thing on the other side.
• Now cut a piece of galvanized iron wire of the length of the petal plus 2 cm in height, put it in the petal and work around the dots. Pull the petal well to give it the right shape, twist the remaining wire of iron to close the work, cut off that which is more than the piece that remains folded into the inner side of the petal.

Explanation of the "central" gradient of the tulip

Forgive me but I do not know the exact term and anyway I think it makes the idea. I could not create it with the petal without being seen outside as well, so I thought to do it like this:

• With the black cotton start 5 chains, close in round and do:
• 1 lap: 24 triple crochet.
• 2 turns: with yellow cotton, make 2 single crochet at each point below and every 8 points make a 3-point chain.
Now cut a piece of plastic wire length you want to give to the stem of your tulip. Then, in a tip, wrap several times of yellow cotton to form a sort of pistil, helping you with a bent pliers the tip of the stem to close and stop the cotton. Now enter the "gradient" and the flower.

Explanation of the leaves



• Start 50 chains
• 1 turn: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 double crochet, 31 triple crochet, 3 double crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 single crochet, equal to the other side.
2 laps: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 double crochet, 41 triple crochet  (increase one point every 3 points) 3 double crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 single crochet, equal to the other side.
Cut a piece of galvanized wire wire of the leaf length more about 2 cm per side and work around the single crochet. Make 2 leaves for each flower.
 Tend the leaf well to give it the right shape, close the work and join the leaf to the stem through the remaining iron wire by twisting it well. Put them apart one cm apart and position them one in front of each other because in nature they are put this way. Now there is nothing else to do about chains around the stem except the piece that will be inserted into the vessel as I did. And if you want more natural composition, you can add some smaller leaves around. You can also make a bunch of cut tulips, in this case cover the whole chain with the chains and remember to fold the tip (helping you with a pinch) so that the job did not slide away.


As always I hope you have explained everything to the best and have helped you along with your passion and fantasy to create your masterpiece. A warm greeting to everyone and to the next.
