  3. Double Crochet (dc): Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through the first two loops on hook, yarn over again, pull through the remaining two loops.

  1. Creating the Flowers:
    • Start with a magic ring (also known as a magic circle).
    • Inside the magic ring, crochet 6 single crochet (sc) stitches.
    • Pull the ring tight to close the circle.
    • Join with a slip stitch (sl st) to the first sc to form a small circle.
    • Chain 4 to create the first petal, skip one stitch, and slip stitch into the next. Repeat this process to create 6 petals.
  2. Creating the Leaves (if desired):
    • Using green yarn, chain a desired number (usually 5-7 chains for each leaf).
    • Work single crochet (sc) or double crochet (dc) stitches into each chain to create the leaf shape.
    • Attach the leaves to the stem by slip stitching them on.
  3. Assembling the Lily of the Valley:
    • Attach the flowers to the tops of the floral wire stems.
    • Wrap the stems with green floral tape to give them a natural look.
    • Arrange and shape the leaves around the stems as desired.
  4. Finishing Touches:
    • If you like, you can add small white beads in the center of each flower to mimic the appearance of the Lily of the Valley’s bell-shaped blooms.
