Ribbon Candy Flower Free Crochet Pattern

Free Ribbon Candy Flower Crochet Pattern
Ribbon Candy Flower
When I designed the Ribbon Candy Infant Dress crochet pattern, I wanted a fun embelishment that would play off the design of the twirling ribbon effect in this stitch.  This was the final result and I think it's pretty fun to work up and it fits!  
It is included in the dress pattern, and now, it will also remain free here on my blog for everyone to enjoy.

Small amount of 4ww yarn (2-3 colors)
**Color A will be the center color, Color B will be the outer color**
Hook size H
Button (size of choice)
Matching thread and needle

Ch - Chain

Sp - Space 
St - Stitch
Sl St - Slip Stitch
SC - Single Crochet
HDC - Half Double Crochet
DC - Double Crochet
TR - Treble Crochet

Round 1: With Color A - Ch 4, work 8 DC in beginning Ch Sp, Sl St to top of Ch 4 to connect
