Found this Japanese crochet flower pattern on a Japanese crochet book originaly. After upgrading my computer I lost those ebooks unfortunately. However, after some time I saw this pattern again on Pinterest and decided to try this pattern.
While working on my yarn I couldn’t finish because my white yarn finished while half finished. So, I thought “Oh, crap. What should I do now?” And this came into my mind.
Why not try another color to finish it? Turned out fine. See for yourself .
Here is the pattern for this crochet flower .
Start from a slip knot. 6 chains. Slip knot into the first chain from slip knot.
4 chains from slip knot. *Double crochet into the round. Chain 1. Repeat from * until you crochet 11 double crochets.(first 3 chains are considered as the first dc. So, the total would be 12 dcs.)
Chain 1, sc on slip knot.sc on next, 2sc on after.10 chain. Again *sc on next, 2sc on after.sc on next 2sc on after.10 chain. Repeat from *.
*10 double crochet into the left side loop, 3 chains, another 10 double crochets in the same loop. Slip knot on the middle of space between 2 loops. This makes one petal. Continue working on 6 petals repeating from *.

The normal path of making a hat is starting from the upper part with a magic ring or something and crocheting around the hat increasing the stitch count. I wanted to try otherwise and made this down to up crochet hat as an experiment.
Turned out the hat is a win so I thought I should share the pattern here. This technique is great if you are unsure of keeping the desired head circumference on your hat.
First you need to crochet a stripe out of green color. Make sure that the length of the hat matches with your head circumference. As this is a newborn size hat I chose the size of 15 inches.
Yarn brand – Handy Rabbit worsted weight 3 ply yarn
I used 4.0 hook for the stripe and 3.0 hook for crocheting around the hat.
Making the Stripe
Make a slip stitch and 8 chains. On 8th chain make a double crochet like this hat pattern. Crochet 8 dc on 8 chains.
Row 2 – fpdc on each dc stitch.
Row 3 to 40 – repeat row 2.
Join 1st row and last row with slip stitches.
Now you have made a head band matches with your preferred head circumference.
With white color yarn crochet 2 dcs onto each dc of your head band. (80 dcs) Join 1st dc with the last dc with a slip knot making a round.
Row 2 – *dc, skip 2 stitches, (dc, chain, dc, chain, dc)on next stitch, skip 2 stitches, repeat from *.Join with a slip knot.
Row 3 to 5 – Repeat row 2.
Row 6 – Change color to green.dc on each stitch (80 stitches).
Row 7 – *dc on 4 stitches, dc decrease on next 2 stitches. Repeat from *.
Row 8 – *dc on 3 stitches ,dc decrease on next 2 stitches. Repeat from *.
Row 9 – *dc on 2 stitches ,dc decrease on next 2 stitches . Repeat from *.
Row 10 – *dc , dc decrease on next 2 stitches. Repeat from *.
Row 11 – *dc decrease on 2 stitches. Repeat from *.
Row 12 – Repeat row 11. Fasten off .
Attach a white color pom pom to make your hat more beautiful .
