African Flower Pincushion, pattern

Now that you've made an African Flower tape measure, I know you're in need of a matching pincushion. Here is a quick an easy pattern for you.

You need:
 Thin cotton yarn in 1-4 different colors. I've used DMC, Natura Just Cotton
 3 mm crochet hook
Polyfil stuffing
 Scissors

 Needle

African flower pincushion

US crochet terms.
Abbreviations:
ch = chain
st = stitch
ss = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
ch-sp = chain space
rnd = round
bl = back loop

Work a magic circle

  1. Color 1.  Around the circle: Ch2, 1 dc, *ch1, dc 2 together*, repeat from*-* 4 more times, ch1, finish with 1 ss in 1st dc. Cut yarn, weave in ends
  2. Color 2. Attach yarn in any ch1-sp, on rnd 1. 
    Ch3 = 1 dc, ch1, 2 dc around the same ch1-sp as the ch3, *[2 dc, ch1, 2 dc] in next ch1-sp*, repeat from *-* 4 more times, finish with 1 dc around the 1st ch1-sp, finish with 1 ss in 3rd ch.
  3. 1 ss around the 1st ch1-sp, ch3 = 1 dc, 6 dc around the same ch1-sp as the ch3, [7 dc around next ch-sp]x5, finish with a ss in 3rd ch. Cut yarn, weave in ends. (= 6 petals)
  4. Color 3. Attach yarn with a sc in any 1st dc in a petal, on rnd 3.
    1 sc in the next 6 dc, 1 dc in between the last dc in a ch-sp and the first dc in the next ch-sp on rnd 2, *1 sc in the next 7 dc, 1 dc in between the last dc in a ch-sp and the first dc in the next ch-sp on rnd 2*, repeat from *-* 4 more times, finish with 1 ss in 1st sc. Cut yarn, weave in ends. Make sure the flower fits on top of your tape measure.
  5. Color 4. Attatch yarn in any st on rnd 4.
    Ch3 = 1 dc, 1 dc in each st around, finish with 1 ss i 3rd ch. Cut yarn, weave in end. Make one more (= 48 dc)
  6. Color 1. Now it's time to crochet the two flowers together. With the wrong side facing each other, attach yarn with a sc in the back loop of any dc on rnd 5, on both flowers.
    Crochet trough the bl on each flower, 1 sc in each st around, when you have about 10 stitches left, stuff the flower with poyfil stuffing, continue to crochet 1 sc in the remaining st, finish with 1 ss in 1st sc. (= 48 sc)
  7. Ch1 = 1 sc, skip 1 sc, 5 hdc in next dc, skip 1 sc, *1 sc in next dc, skip 1 sc, 5 hdc in next dc, skip 1 sc*, repeat from *-* around, finish with 1 ss in 1st ch. Cut yarn, weave in ends.
