Materials:

1-6 inch spool (15 yards) of tulle, in the color of your choice

U.S. size J crochet hook

scrap cotton yarn

Pattern:

Notes: First three rounds are worked continuously, without joining. And, as tulle is a material that can be a little harder to work with due to friction of the texture, you may want to try to keep your work loose.

Ch 2, and then make 6 sc in second ch from hook. This makes up round 1. Do not join, but continue around. 

Round 2: 2 sc in each stitch around (total of 12 sts)

Round 3: 2 sc in each stitch around (total of 24 sts)

Round 4: [ch 3, skip two stitches, then sc in third stitch], repeat from [ to ] 7 more times (you should then see eight ch 3 spaces around), sl stitch in first ch space at beginning of the round to join.

Round 5: In first of the eight ch 3 spaces, you will make [1sc, 2 dc, 1sc]. Repeat from [ to ] 7 more times for a total of 8 slight petals, sl st at the join but do not break off. Ch 16 (for loop to hang from), join at ch 1 spot and weave in ends.

Use scrap cotton yarn to freeform embroider a floral center for your “poppy”.

It’s not only a great pot scrubber/tawashi, but works great on glass cook tops as a non-scratch cleaner! Enjoy!
