How to crochet a Water Lily

The Water Lily, a wonderful water flower that with its presence can transform any puddle of water into a dreamy pond. It blows at dawn and closes at sunset, and this beautiful way of life is also linked to a beautiful legend.

Also known as a water lily and just as he has the meaning of purity and chastity. I created this crocheted flower so that I can admire it all year without even having a pond. Crocheted water lilies
I have simply placed them in a basket with inside the gardening sponge. It consists of petals, pistils and leaves that with the explanation that I am giving you are fairly simple to recreate.

Explanation of the flower


The flower of the water lily consists of 4 sections of 5 petals each sewn at the ends of 2 different sizes and placed one above the other offset with center 3 different measures of pistils and at the center of these a central pistil made of yellow cotton Twisted into a piece of plastic wire and then bent to form a small ball holding those 4-5 cms to fit them into the jar. Okay, let's move on to the petals explanation.

Explanation of the small petal

With light pink cotton, start 15 chains and do these: 1 single crochet, 1 half double crochet, 2 double crochet, 6 triple crochet, 2 double crochet, 1 half double crochet, 1 single crochet, equal to the other side Of chains. Now place a piece of galvanized iron wire that has the length of the petal and attach it to the work by working around the single crochet. Now twist the remaining galvanized iron wire, cut the excess and fold the small tip forward to the outside of the petal. Of these petals make 5 equal. Now join the base by hearing them like forming a circle. Of this measure do it twice.

Explanation of the medium petal

With the pink cotton, start 20 chains and make them 1 single crochet, 1 half double crochet, 2 double crochet, 11 triple crochet, 2 double crochet, 1 half double crochet, 1 single crochet, equal to the other side of the chains. From here on the same petal small procedure.

Explanation of the bud




For the bud done a lap of 5 small petals and a 5 petal round lap. With green cotton instead, only 3 medium petals are sewn at the base so that they can be combined. Once you have all the sections going as well as the flower, the petals instead of extending them close a little inside.

Now let's go to the pistils that I have already mentioned are 3 different sizes to position one over the other.


Explanation of small pistil



Start 6 chains, close in round and inside 9 times to make: 5 chains and in these do: 3 single crochet, 1 half double crochet, 1 slip stitch.

Explanation of the average pistil

Start 6 chains in round and inside 9 times to make: 7 chains and in these make: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 1 slip stitch.

Big pistol explanation

Start 6 chains in round and inside 9 times to make: 9 chains and in these do: 4 single crochet, 4 half double crochet, 1 slip stitch.
Bend them slightly to stretch the tips well.


Explanation of the leaf

4 chains and in the first one 11double crochet (12 points high).
1 turn: Work 2 points in each previous point, in the end do not close in round but turn the work and work and filet the subsequent laps.
2 Turn: Work 2 points in each previous point.
3 lap: 1 double crochet, 2 points high at a previous point (an increase every 2 points).
4th and 5th lap: 1 single crochet in each high point above except in the second and in the penultimate that you will triple crochet.
6 and 7 laps: 2 points high, 2 double crochet in a previous point (an increase every 3 points).


Now according to the position you need to create your leaf, you can also just lay it on it or twist the galvanized iron wire with a small green pistil to fit in the jar to keep the leaf still. Thread them slightly to give them a slightly elongated shape and relax the two openings well. Let yourself be guided by your fantasy and set the composition in your personal pond.


Girls just gave you an example all the rest you have to do with your passion by having fun creating your own small masterpiece. Hi everyone to the next.
