Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


Exact gauge is not essential to this project.


1. Poinsettia is made from 15 pieces: 6 Leaves, 6 Petals, and 3 Centers.
2. Leaves and Petals are worked along both sides of the foundation ch.
3. Materials are sufficient to make multiple Ornaments.

LEAF (make 6)
Beg at base of Leaf, with A, ch 10.
Row 1: Sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 2 ch, hdc in next 3 ch, sc in next 2 ch, (sl st, ch 2, sl st) in last ch (tip of Leaf); working across opposite side of foundation ch, sc in next 2 ch, hdc in next 3 ch, sc in next 2 ch, sl st in next ch.
Fasten off. Cut yarn leaving a long yarn tail.

PETAL (make 6)
Beg at base of Petal, with B, ch 6.
Row 1: Sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 2 ch, hdc in next ch, 5 hdc in last ch (tip of Petal); working across opposite side of foundation ch, hdc in next ch, sc in next 2 ch, sl st in next ch.

Poinsettia Ornament Reviewed by Sandra Patrick on 2012-12-16 ****
I had a go at this and the finished flower looks fine and has been made into a brooch. If I was making this again, I would alter the petal shape to make the ends more pointed.

However although the crochet part didn't take long, it took forever to sew everything together. Has someone come up with a poinsettia pattern yet that can be made up in one piece?
