Applique, brooch, button, decoration, whatever, feel free to add bits and beads and color! This one is quite small as it was done with thin thread and a 1.5 mm hook. Experiment and let me see! :)
Sorry that the pattern turned out a bit tricksy and too complicated! Send feedback, please!
R1:: into magic ring: ch2, sc 9, sl st to top of ch2 (10 sc)
R2:: ch2, sc in same st, 2 sc in each st around, sl st to top of ch2 (20 sc)
R3:: ch2, *2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next* around, sl st to top of ch2 (30 sc)
R4:: ch2, sc in next st, *2 sc in next, 1 sc in each of next two sts* around, sl st to top of ch2 (40 sc), do not fasten off
R1:: ch4, join with sl st in first st to form a ring
R2:: ch2, then, working into the ring: sc 9, sl st to top of ch2 (10 sc)
R3:: *ch3, make a 3-dc cluster with the base of one dc in same stitch as ch3 and the other two in the next, fasten off cluster leaving a long tail* repeat 5 times to form petals: each petal requires 2 sc's from the 10-sc circle in the middle
Place the flower on top of the flat circle, both with right side facing. Holding the hook in the last loop of the circle, insert hook through the top point of a petal, then through the next st on the circle. YO, draw through st on circle and petal top, YO and draw through the remaining 2 loops. Petal secured!
Now sc in next 7 sc’s on the circle. Repeat until all petals are in place. Make the last 7 sc’s and close round with sl st in first st. Fasten off.
FINISHING TOUCHES (OPTIONAL)::
Draw the loose ends to the wrong side through the sc located above each petal point.
Working on the wrong side, insert hook into a space right above the hole in the middle of the circle, in straight line below the petal-top sc. Resurface the hook (still on the wrong side) just below the drawn-though end. Pull the tail through. Repeat with each loose end. In this way, all loose ends are in a neat circular bunch near the center. Tie them in a knot and draw them all to the right side through the hole in the middle. They should remain hidden under the flower, so make sure you cut all the extra thread.
