Over Labor Day Weekend, my daughter Annie was invited to play in a Pro/Am golf tournament supporting the Epson Tour on the road to the LPGA.
My husband and I accompanied her and we all were so excited to golf with a Pro Golfer. On the plane ride over, I quickly made a gift bag for a sleeve of Golf Balls with the DFC logo and some other goodies.
This was a fun opportunity for Annie to get a glimpse of what it’s like to play as a golf professional since she wants to be a player and ultimately be a golf instructor.
And the pro we were paired with was Kendra Dalton! She’s a former BYU golfer and Annie had played with her on the Cactus Tour here in Arizona.
She is absolutely delightful and was so fun to watch! For several holes, my husband and I just watched Annie and her swing away. They are soo good!
Anyway, I shared about it on Crochet Sister Chat and several people wanted the quick little pattern so I thought I’d share.
I love how my daisy turned out too! So cute.
(but you can use any yarn you choose, make sure you check the label for the appropriate hook size.)
1 skein Golden. 1 Skein Cotton (cream)
Size G 4.0mm hook, tapestry needle, scissors
Chain any number to 4 inches (or to any size you’d like)
Round 1: Begin in the second chain from the hook with SC. SC into each of the next chains to the end. In the last chain work 3 SC. Turn the chain to work on the underside of the chain. Work SC at the base of each stitch and around the bottom of the chain. When you return to the starting SC, work 2 SC into that same space.
Round 2: Do not join, continue working 1 SC into the back loop of each SC around.
Repeat round 2 until you have the height you need.
Last round: Work 1 DC into the back loop of each SC stitch around. Join with a SL ST to the first DC of the round. Tie off.
Weave in the ends and turn the bag inside out. (The ridges are on the outside.)
Make a chain long enough to weave through the DC and have extra for tying. Tie knots on either end of the chain to secure. Attach a safety pin to one end of the chain and weave it through the DC stitches.
Make a magic circle and chain 1. Work 6 HDC clusters into the magic circle. (*YO, insert hook into the middle of the circle, YO, pull up a loop, repeat from * 2 more times, YO and pull through all loops on your hook.) Join with a SL ST to the ch 1, tie off.
With cream color, pull up a loop in the top of a cluster, ch 6, work DC2tog Cluster in the 4th chain from the hook. (*YO, insert hook, YO pull up a loop, YO pull through 2 loops. Repeat from * 1 more time, YO and pull through all loops on your hook.) Work DC2tog Cluster in each of the remaining 2 chains. (petal made) SL ST into the top of the next cluster.
Make 7 petals total. after the last petal, SL ST to first join, tie off with long tails for sewing.
Sew the flower to the front of the gift bag.
