* = repeat
- = picot (small picot)
---- = large picot
+ = join
, = Shuttleknot (shuttle join)

You need one shuttle and a ball or two shuttles
Material Finka Nr.12 Perlkotton was used in the example
Wire 0,40 mm (for the petals) and 2 mm (for the stem)
Top and bottom petals worked 3 times.

Top petal
1.ch 2-4-2 rw
2.ch 2,4,2,2-rw
3.ch 2,2,4,2,2-rw
4.ch 2,2,4,4,2-rw
5.ch 2,4,4,4,2,2-rw
6.ch 2,2,4,4,4,2,2-rw
7.ch 2,2,4,4,4,4,2-rw
8.ch 2,4,4,4,4,4,2,2-rw
9.ch 2,2,4,4,4,4,4,2-rw
10.ch 2,4,4,4,4,4,4,2,2-rw
11.ch 2,2,4,4,4,4,4,4,2,2-rw
12.ch 2,2,4,4,4,4,4,4,4-rw
*13.ch 4,4,4,4,4,4,4,4-rw * 8 times then decrease as you work the chains in descending order; take 4 away at 1 side.

DO NOT CUT THREAD

Cut wire 3 times the length of the petal and work the wire around the petal to each row 1+1+ and then cut thread leaving a short piece at the ends (5-7cm) .

and go backwards , you can even take 4 away at 1 side.

DO NOT CUT THREAD

.

Small green leaf 29 cm of length beginning at the top.
1.ch 4-rw
2.ch 4,2-rw
3.ch 2,4,2-rw
4.ch 2,4,2,2-rw
5.ch 2,2,4,2,2-rw
6.ch 2,2,4,4,2-rw
7.ch 2,4,4,4,2-rw
8.ch 2,4,4,4,2,2-rw
9.ch 2,2,4,4,4,2,2-rw
10.ch 2,2,4,4,4,4,4-rw
*11.ch 4,4,4,4,4,4-rw * repeat until length of about one foot (29 cm) is reached.

DO NOT CUT THREAD

Cut wire 3 times the length of the leaf and work the wire around the leaf to each row 1+1+ and then cut thread leaving short length (5-7cm).

View closeup of the tapered leaf block:
Base
Point

Small yellow "beard" measure the length you want.
ch 1---1--1----1 (I worked 50 knots), folding them together then cut thread 7-10cm of length, cut picots, and then sew on.


To finish the blossom:
Cut 2-mm-wire to measure the length of the stem desired.
Arrange your 6 blossom petal-wires wrapping around the stem. Cover wires by wrapping with thread (or use floral tape)
