How to crochet a Trefoil

This beautiful field flute which is considered to be a weed because it is prolific everywhere is also called acetosella due to its acidic and salty flavor. March is her month, she is immediately recognized by the immense yellow mats with which she covers the fields together with the calendula and daisies
. I also have a lot of them in the garden and when I start growing vegetables have already made their season, to keep it a bit with me I thought about recreating this crocheted blossom. Now I get the explanation
of this plant which is composed of: flower, bud, chalice and leaves. Let's begin
.

Explanation of the flower.




Start 4 chains and in the first make 9 double crochet (total 10)
1 lap: 10 double crochet.
2 lap: 2 double crochet at a point twice, turn the job.
3 laps: 1 double crochet, 2 double crochet at one point for 2 times, a double crochet, turn the job
4 lap: 1 half double crochet, one double crochet, 2 triple crochet in one point twice, one double crochet, one half double crochet.
Get down to a slip stitch up to a 10-point lap and make equal again for a total of five petals.

Explanation of the bud.

The bud is a petal.

Start 4 chains and in the first make 3 double crochet (total 4), turn the work.
1 turn: a double crochet, 2 double crochet at one point for 2 times, a double crochet, turn the job
2 lap: 6 double crochet, turn the job.
3 lap: a half double crochet, a double crochet, 2 triple crochet in a point 2 times, a double crochet, a half double crochet. Close the work and hold the thread a bit long to sew the petal.
Cut a piece of plastic wire and bend it into a tip to form a small knot (help with a clamp). Close the spiral petal and sew it around the stem tip. This work is done only with the first bud, for the other buds cut off a piece of galvanized iron wire of about 10 cm in length, bend it halfway and over the top, sew around the bud, the remaining iron wire twist it on itself to form a small stalk, the other 2 cm at least leave them free to hook the bud to the main stem.

Explanation of the small flower pistil.


Cut about 10 cm of galvanized iron wire and center a small ball of dark yellow cotton rolling over it several times, then twist the remaining galvanized iron wire, except for 2 cm, that will be used to fasten the flower to the stem .

Explanation of the chalice.

Start 4 chains and in the first make 9 double crochet (total 10), close the work and hold the cotton a bit long to be able to sew.
Now put in and sew the goblet to buds and flowers, then around the small stems you will work around the chains to cover them with green cotton. Once you put both flowers and buds around the stem at the top in a very similar way to the original, then work the chains to the stem to cover everything except those 3-4 cm that will serve to insert the stem into the jar. Now do not worry about preparing the leaves.

Explanation of the leaf.

Start 11 chains and make these 9 single crochet, a slip stitch in the first chain. Do 10 chains and do these: 9 single crochet, again a slip stitch in the first starting chain, again 10 chains and 9 single crochet in these, a slip stitch in the first chain.
1 lap: Now in the 9-single crochet to make: 2 slip stitch, a single crochet, a half double crochet, a double crochet, two triple crochet in one point, two double triple crochet three times in a point twice and then two triple crochet , a double crochet, a half double crochet, a single crochet at one point. Repeat the opposite to the other side of the single crochet. A slip stitch in the first chain of the initial and resemble the same for a total of 3 times.

Now cut a piece of plastic wire length of wire that you need, place it in the center of the leaf then bend the tip and with the clamp close it, you have created the leaf stem. Now with slip stitch, turn the center of the leaf to close the edges and close the center, then down and work the chains around the stem, except those 3-4 cm that will serve you to insert it into the jar. If you see that the leaves are not stuck in a little (much depends on the type of cotton you are using). It seems a bit complicated to understand but you will realize that while you work it will be simple to accomplish. I just hope I've explained everything to the best. All you have to do is make all the flowers, buds and leaves you need to create your jar or yellow clover bouquet (very nice also in the pink variant). Good for everyone, hello to the next!
