How to crochet a Gentian

A flower of extraordinary beauty that beautifies almost all Alpine parks, it grows mainly in high mountains near the rocks. A delicate but tenacious plant that challenges a soil and a climate at the limit of tolerability. Determination is in fact the meaning of the Genziana flower. This crocheted flower is part of the composition of mountain flowers.
Quite simple to recreate is composed of flower, bud, chalice, pistil and leaves
.

1 lap: 15 double crochet.
2 laps: 20 double crochet.
3-4-5 and 6 laps: 24 double crochet.

Explanation of the pistil.

Start 20 chains and in seventeenth make 17 double crochet (18 in total). Once this is done the 18 ° double crochet to make a picot of 4 chains in the tip, then make another picot the center of the double crochet and still another picot at the end of the double crochet (total 3 picots on the top). Cut the cotton by letting it over a piece that will serve to sew the edges of the double crochet. Cut a piece of galvanized iron wire the length of the double crochet plus another 3-4 cm must be twisted on itself to create a small stem that will be incorporated into the jar. Now put the iron wire halfway above the 18 double crochet and sew the edges by locking it inside. Tighten the remaining wire of iron and put the pistil into the flower.

Explanation of the chalice.

Start 4 chains and in the first do 9 double crochet (total 10).
1 and 2 laps: 20 double crochet.
3 laps: 7 chains and in these make: 2 single crochet, 2 half double crochet, 2 double crochet, skip 3 base points, a slip stitch, resemble equal to a total of 5 times.
Thread the tips of the goblet to keep it open.


Now let's explain the leaves that are of two different sizes and that I distinguish between medium and small.

Explanation of the medium leaf.
Start 30 chains.
1 lap: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 double crochet, 11 triple crochet, 3 double crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 single crochet, equal to the other side of the chains. Insert the iron wire into the leaf (cut the length of the leaf plus another piece to twist on itself) which will then serve to insert it into the jar and work around the single crochet, close the work.
Explanation of the small leaf.
Same procedure as the average leaf, only the chains that will be 25 and the triple crochet will be 6.
Once you have prepared the flower, the pistil and the cup, make the Gentian by first inserting the pistil into the flower and then the small cup in the small stalk and in this for about 2-3 cm work around a few green cotton cords to cover it. Same work to compose the bud.
I always hope to have been fairly clear with the explanations (I'm more trying to create the explanation than the flower) and to have helped you create this tenacious map that challenges the extreme nature. You can place this crocheted flower in a single jar or combine it with other flowers in a composition as I did. Have fun creating with your imagination. Hi everyone and next.
