any feltable yarn can be used for the Curly Dahlia - for the Greenery I crochet over 28 gauge jewellery wire - Fascinator base was covered with a hand-felted patch - flower, greenery & beads were then attached to felt-covered base - created in honour of Melbourne Cup Day 2008 - Down Under Land…

it has been brought to my attention that there is an error in the pattern - row 1 should read: * make 18 ch
Row 1: ss in 2nd ch from hook, dc (US sc) in next ch, htr (US hdc) in next ch, tr (US dc) in next 4 ch, dtr (US tr) in next 5 ch, tr (US dc) in next 2 ch, htr (US hdc) in next ch, dc (US sc) in next ch, ss in last ch, repeat from * 11 times more, finish off leaving a long tail – 12 petals - wind petals into flower shape & sew securely in place
