Floral Bouquet Doily

MATERIALS:
Today most crocheters use the newer crochet thread. I would suggest you use what you have or what you can find. I use crochet cotton #10 on almost all my doilies. I usually use southmaid or Aunt Lydia's. There are many different brands. It will make about 14 inch doily with #10. crochet cotton and a size 11 hook.
DAISY: With Yellow ch 5, join to form a ring, ch 3 and work 17 dc in ring, join, break thread.
PETAL: With White ch 14, insert hook in any dc, pull loop through, ch 1, 1 sc in next st of ch, 1 sdc in each of the next 3 sts (s dc: thread over hook, insert in st, pull loop through, thread over and work off all loops at one time), 1 dc in each of the next 9 sts, 6 sdc in end st, working on opposite side of ch, 1 dc in each of the next 9 sts, 1 sdc in each of the next 3 sts, 1 sc in next st, sl st in same dc, break thread. Skip 1 dc, work another petal in next dc. Continue working in same manner all around. Work a 2nd daisy same as 1st daisy, joining it to 1st daisy as illustrated.
FORGET-ME-NOT: With Yellow ch 2, 8 sc in 2nd st from hook, join, break thread. Attach Color, * ch 4, 3 trc in same space, ch 4, sl st in same space, skip 1 sc, sl st in next sc, repeat from * 3 times, break thread. Work all remaining forget-me-nots in same manner, always joining in center trc of petals.
PANSY: All pansies are worked in same manner, ch 7, join to form a ring, ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 2 dc in ring, * ch 7, 3 dc in ring, repeat from * 3 times, ch 7, join.
2nd Row: Sl st to loop, ch 3, 12 dc in loop, * 1 sc in center dc of next dc group, 13 dc in next loop, repeat from * once, * sc in center dc of next dc group, ch 4 and work 8 dtrc, 2 trc, 2 dc with ch 1 between each st in next loop, sc in center dc of next dc group, 2 dc, 2 trc, 8 dtrc with ch 1 between each st in next loop, ch 4, sc in center dc of next dc group, join, break thread.
LEAF: All leaves are worked with Green in same manner. Ch 25, sc in 2nd st from hook, 1 sc in next st of ch, 1 s dc in each of the next 2 sts, 1 dc in each of the next 3 sts, 1 trc in each of the next 8 sts, 1 trc, 1 dc in next st, 1 dc in each of the next 4 sts, 1 s dc in each of the next 2 sts, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, break thread.
