Crochet Ribbon Flower

I was checking out my youtube subscriptions this morning seeing what new videos have been uploaded when I came across some older crochet videos on how to make some flowers. If you've been reading my blog for a while you know how much I LOVE flowers!!

I learned something new while watching this video: how to crochet a half double crochet foundation chain (that's a half treble in UK terms). I'm off to go practise it now. 

it's a long video around 18 minutes

Another thing we have in common...the love of flowers! :-) And these are really interesting...I thought you knew how to do the half double crochet. It's one of the stitches in your squares!...Anyway, it's not difficult. I think of it as just a double crochet (treble in UK terms), without the extra draw through. ^_^

I did know how to do the half treble (double crochet) but not as a foundation chain. I'd never tried that before.
