So for this project I used a worsted weight yarn and an H hook because that was what I was working with. You are more than welcome to use whatever size yarn you have and the hook needed for that yarn. My flower ended up being about 4 inches wide, so of course the smaller yarn and hook you use then the smaller the flower will be, while the larger they are then the larger the flower will be.
This pattern has been edited 08/10/2015 due to an error. Round 5 of the flower base creates too many loops and the the rest of the pattern then doesn't make sense. IF you download the PDF file please make sure to omit round 5 for a correct flower.

Note: Do not join rounds in the base, work in a continuous spiral. You may want to mark the beginning of each round with a stitch marker.
Make a magic loop/ring.
Rnd 1: ch 1, work 8 hdc in loop. (8 hdc)
Rnd 2: in back loops only, work 2 hdc in each hdc around. (16 hdc)
Rnd 3: in back loops only, (hdc, 2 hdc in next st) around. (24 hdc)
Rnd 4: in back loops only, (hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next st) around. (32 hdc)
Sc in next st and turn.
Don't fasten off.
After you've turned your piece you should be looking at the side edge of it. Now you will slip stitch around the edge of your piece and in the front loops that were left unworked from the spiral.
Ch 3, skip the sc and 1 hdc, slst in next st, (Ch 3, skip 2 hdc, slst in next loop) until you have 19 Ch3 spaces.
(Ch 2, skip 1 hdc, slst in next loop) around for 12 Ch2 spaces.
In each of the 12 Ch2 spaces work (slst, hdc, 2 dc, hdc, slst).
In each of the 19 Ch3 spaces work (slst, hdc, 3 dc, hdc, slst). At the end of the flower slst to the next stitch on the flower base.
Fasten Off and weave in ends.
That's it! I hope it was easy to follow and if you have any questions then please feel free to leave them below so I can help you! You are more than welcome to sell what you make from this pattern but please link to this blog. :)
I've made a wrap flower square using this flower with double crochets. Check it out for a full photo tutorial of these flowers.
