How to crochet a Edelweiss

The queen of mountain flowers, the Star Alpine is a protected flower and perhaps even the most famous around which there are so many beautiful legends. A flower that after years of ruthless gathering today is returning to spread and has managed to survive because it usually lives in improvised areas. This crocheted flower is also part of the composition of mountain flowers
.

Explanation of the flower.



The flower consists of 2 sections of 5 petals each, one small and one large.
Section of 5 Small Petals: Start 5 chains, close in circle and inside to do:
1 turn: 10 chains and in these make: 9 single crochet, a slip stitch in the circle for a total of 5 times.
2 laps: in the single crochet, make a single crochet, a half double crochet, 2 half double crochet in a base, 3 single crochet, 3 slip stitch, make the same on the other side to complete the petal, a slip stitch.
Section 5 Large Petals: Start 5 chains
1 turn: 15 chains and in these make: 14 single crochet, a slip stitch in the circle for a total of 5 times.
2 lap: a single crochet, a half double crochet, 2 half double crochet at a base, 3 double crochet, 2 half double crochet in a base, a half double crochet, 3 single crochet, 3 slip stitch, same equal 'other side of the chains to complete the petal, a slip stitch.

Explanation of the pistil.

Start 5 chains
1 turn: 4 chains and in the first one 6 double crochet (total 7 because the 3 chains substitute the first double crochet), put the crochet in the first double crochet and make a slip stitch, you have got such a nutshell, make a slip stitch within the circle of 5 chains and resemble the same for a total of 6 peanuts.

Explanation of the flower chalice:

Start 5 chains
1 turn: 15 single crochet.
2 lap: 3 chains and in these do: a single crochet, a half double crochet, skip 2 base points, a slip stitch, resemble equal to a total of 5 times.

Explanation of the bud.

Start 4 chains and in the first make 11 double crochet (total 12).
1 lap: 18 double crochet.
2 laps: 2 double crochet closed together for the whole lap. Then insert the stem by cutting a piece of plastic wire, the length you need and bending it 2-3 times on a tip to form a small ball and insert it into the bud.
3 laps: with 4-5 slip stitch, close the job.

Explanation of the Blossom Chalice.

Start 5 chains.
1 lap: 15 double crochet.
2 rounds: 7 chains and in these make: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, skip 2 base points, a slip stitch, resemble the same for a total of 5 times.

Once you have prepared all the sections of the flowers, the pistols and the chalices of the flowers and buds prepared the stems.
Then cut a piece of plastic wire wire and wrap the same cotton on the tip of the tip repeatedly for the pistil until you get a ball of the same size as the peanuts. It will be the central pistil and will be a pivot to hold the whole flower. Put in the order first the pistil, then the section of small petals and then the big one trying not to put them superimposed but offset so that all the petals are visible (if you need to somewhat pinch the petals and the goblets). Now let's explain the leaves I made of two different sizes. The small leaves will be loosened to the stem in a very thin way. The large leaves are paired and joined by 2 through the galvanized iron wire and placed in the jar at the base of the flowers.

Explanation of the small leaf.

Start 20 chains.
1 turn: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 7 double crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 single crochet, equal to the other side of the chains.
2 revolutions: Insert the galvanized iron wire of the leaf length (more than 2 cm more per side to fit it to the stem) and work around the single crochet.

Explanation of the large leaf.

Start 25 chains.
1 turn: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 12 double crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 single crochet, equal to the other side of the chains.

As the large leaves are joined by the iron wire, cut the length of 2 leaves and join them to the first leaf by working around the single crochet. Twist the iron wire for 2-3 times on it to stop the work and make 25 chains and then another identical leaf, then drop to a slip stitch until the beginning of the second leaf and join the remaining iron wire by working around the single crochet. The iron wire that is in it ties it to itself to form a small stem that will serve you to insert the leaf into the jar.
Once you put the small leaves on the stem, work around the chains once on the right and once on the left of the stem, except for 2-3 cm that you will leave without covering because it will be inserted into the jar. Same work for buds.

You just have to put your Alpine Star in a jar with some pebbles and a few grass clumps to recreate its natural environment. The Alpine Star is so beautiful either alone or to be included in a composition of mountain flowers. I always hope to have given you an extra idea and to have explained everything to the best. Have fun creating with your imagination and let yourself be guided by your inspiration. Hi everyone, next!
