This unique flower is easy and fun to work up and would be a great addition to any hat.
It would also make a great pin, flower barrette or headband.

Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Chain 5, 4 triple crochet into first stitch on chain, chain 4, slip stitch into first stitch on chain, Repeat 4 more times to create 5 petals. *Be sure to stitch into first stitch of each chain and not into the center of flower as it is being created. (this pattern can also be transformed into a bow- two petals with yarn wrapped around center. Or a 3-4 leafed clover- just make 3-4 petals and add a stem)
It will get a little tricky holding it all together for the first couple times you make this flower but I promise you it will all come together nicely.
From front to back insert hook into loop of first petal and slip stich, continue to slip stitch all the way around through each petal and finish by slip stitching nto first slip stich in center.
