(The number you will see in parentheses behind the instructions is the number of stitches you will have at the end of the row)
Petal 1 - (make 3)
Row 1: 6 sc in a magic ring
Row 2: 6 inc (12)
Row 3: 1 sc - 1 inc (18)
Row 4 and 5 : 18 sc in each row
Finish with 1 slip stitch and cut the yarn
Make another part exactly the same, but don't cut the yarn after having made the last slipped stitch.
Put the two pieces together
Row 6: The piece we have in our crochet, remains in the crochet. Take the first piece we knitted, and make 1 slip stitch in the slipped stitch we made in the first piece.
The two pieces are placed with the magic circle facing us
Pass the crochet hook through the slipped stitch we made in the first piece and we make 1 slip stitch
This will be the first stitch of this row number 6 and we can mark it.
As we knit we hook the yarn of the first piece, it is important as we knit the first and second stitches to adjust the slipped stitch we made by pulling the yarn to make it as tight as possible.
We make 18 sts. At the end of this first part we will have 19 sts.
Now we return to knit 1 slip stitch on the other piece, and knit the remaining 18 stitches.
Row 9: 3 sc - 1 inc - 1 chain x 9. Finish making 8 sc and secure with 1 knot.
Glue the petals to the stick
To glue the petals to the stick I use a silicone gun.
The half of the petal has to be glued to the stick and the knot part will be placed at the bottom.
We have to roll it up as if it was a little roll. we glue all the "Petals 1", then we continue with the "Petals 2" and finish with the "Petals 3".
Stretch the fabric gently so that it is compact and without looseness. Cut the excess strands if any of them are too long.
How to make the leaves
(in the video tutorial that you can access from the top of the page, you can see the step by step at minute 18:24 in case you find it easier to follow)
Make a chain of 9 stitches, avoiding that the stitches are loose.
Make 1 double crochet in the chain nº6 and continue with another double crochet in the next chain.
Make 1 half double crochet in the next two chains.
Make 1 sc in the last two chains.
On the last single crochet that we have just knitted we make 2 chains and 1 slip stitch in the first chain.
Now we are going to knit the other part of the chain going back to the beginning.
At the end of the two sc, make 1 half double crochet in the next two stitches.
Continue with 1 double crochet in the last 2 stitches
Finish by making 2 chain stitches and knit 1 slip stitch, in the last stitch of the holes formed in the center along the length of the sheet.
Continue making 1 increase on the first chain we made. If you pay attention, I don't insert the hook through the big hole, I do it to the left of the stitch, taking advantage of the small hole.
If you can't see this hole well, you can also increase by taking the back loop of the stitch.
In the next stitch, we make another increase.
Continue with 7 sc, make 2 chain stitches, 1 slip stitch in the first chain
Continue with 7 sc and 1 increase in the last two stitches, as we did at the beginning. Finish with 1 slip stitch and cut yarn.
Hide the strand behind the leaf and secure with 1 knot. Pass the yarn carefully so that it does not show on the front part of the leaf. Trim the threads at the end.
Make the chalice
Row 1: Magic ring 6 sc. Don't close the ring too much because the wooden stick will go inside.
Row 2: 6 sc
Before continue, make sure that the stick you are going to use fits through the hole
Row 3: 6 sc
Row 4: 6 inc (12)
Row 5: 1 sc - 1 inc (18p)
Row 6: 18 sc
Row 7: 4 sc, make a chain and turn
Row 8: Make 1 increase in the first stitch, continue making 1 sc in the next 2 stitches. Finish by making another increase in the last stitch, one chain and turn
Row 9 and 10: 6 sc, chain and turn
Row 11: 5 sc starting with the 2nd stitch, 1 chain and turn
Row 12: 4 sc, starting at 2nd stitch, 1 chain and turn
Row 13: 3 sc, starting at 2nd stitch,1 chain and turn
Row 14: 1 decrease starting at 2nd stitch. Decrease by picking up the front of the last 2 stitches. Cut the thread and secure with 1 knot.
Hide the thread with the help of the crochet hook be careful that the thread doesn't show on the outside when hiding it
Second leave of the chalice
For the second leaf, we insert the crochet hook in the next stitch pick up the yarn and pass it through the loop then make 1 sc in the same stitch.
This will be the 1st stitch of row 1, make 4 more stitches to have 5 stitches in total. As I knit, I pick up the yarn at the beginning to hide it. At the end I make a chain and turn.
Row 2: 1 inc - 3 sc - 1 inc - chain and turn (7)
Row 3 and 4: 7 sc - chain and turn
Row 5: 6 sc at 2nd stitch, chain and turn
Row 6: 5 sc starting at 2nd stitch, chain and turn
Row 7: 4 sc starting at 2nd stitch, chain and turn
Row 8: 3 sc starting at 2nd stitch, chain and turn
Row 9: 1 dec beginning at 2nd stitch
Cut thread and secure with 1 knot.
Now make a leaf of 4 sc, like the first leaf we made. The last leaf will be of 5 sc, like the one we just made.
Place the chalice
For the base, I will use the silicone gun. I like some leaves to cover the relief between two petals
Place the leaves
Cut a piece of thin wire, cut this piece in half and twist a couple of times so that they intertwine. They will move a little, but then when we put the thread on they will stay fixed.
Cover it with the thread. We can help ourselves with a bit of instant glue. It is very good because it is less bulky than silicone when it is applied, but it can obscure the thread, so it is better not to use it on parts that will not remain visible. Don't line the part of the wire that will be attached to the stick.
At the height you want to place the leaves, put them on and tighten the thread while lining all the way to the end. You can also secure the wire to the stick with a bit of glue before lining, wait for it to dry and continue lining. I don't recommend using a silicone gun because it is more bulky than using instant glue.
Secure them with instant glue or with the silicone gun at the end.
Glue the leaves to the wire
I put the leaves with instant glue. Two glue drops are sufficient. Silicone gun also sticks well, but the glue remains very visible underneath the leaf.
