from Orange Flower Patterns

 

materials:
 heavy cotton yarn, worsted weight
 crochet hook, size I - or whichever is appropriate for the yarn
 yarn needle
 optional decorative yarns, buttons, etc.

 This project is crocheted in a spiral formation. It is helpful to mark the first stitch on each row, in order to keep track of rows and stitches.

 Round 1: make an adjustable ring with 6 sc. (or: ch2, 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook)
 Round 2: make 2 sc in each sc = 12 sc
 Round 3: sc in next sc, increase in next sc, repeat around = 18 sc
 Round 4: *sc in next 2 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=24 sc
 Round 5: *sc in next 3 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=30 sc
 Round 6: *sc in next 4 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=36 sc
 Round 7: *sc in next 5 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=42 sc
 Round 8: *sc in next 6 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=48 sc
 Round 9: *sc in next 7 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=54 sc
 Round 10: *sc in next 8 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=60 sc
 Round 11: *sc in next 9 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=66 sc
 Round 12: *sc in next 10 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=72 sc
 Round 13: *sc in next 11 sc, increase 1 in next sc, repeat from*=78 sc
 Round 14: sc in BACK LOOP of each sc around =78 sc
 Rounds 15+ sc in each sc around until reaching desired height=78 sc
 Top Fold: sc in FRONT LOOP of each stitch = 78 sc
 Following rounds: sc in each stitch. Continue to desired length.
 End. Hide yarn ends by weaving into fabric w/yarn needle.
