5-Petal Flower

I'm in the mood for flowers this week, so here's the pattern I promised ages ago.
5-petal flower
worsted weight yarn
5.0 mm (H/8) crochet hook
yarn needle for weaving in ends
3-5 beads or small sequins(optional)
sewing thread to match center of flower (optional)
sewing needle (optional)

Notes
When I say to slip stitch into back center stitch of first petal I mean to work into the vertical threads found at the base and only on the back of the center st of the first petal as shown in photo.
working into back center stitch
This flower was designed so that the petals pulled together to form a cupped flower shape.
See option for beaded center below.

Special Stitch:
edc (extended double crochet): yo, insert hook in st, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop on hook, [yo and pull through two loops on hook] twice.

I made two of these flowers so far. I made them all one color, but am planning on using two now that I learned the basic idea. This pattern is well written, as I got it right the first time with no troubles. Thanks and keep on hooking. You are great!

Ooooh! I am stoked to see this and plan to try it. I have crocheted for years but rarely use patterns...need to 'grow up' and 'branch out'...one can only make so many scarves/blankets/wraps right? LOL!
