For flowers I suggest the following:
ww yarn of you choice in 2-3 colors
I liked to use a texture yarn to jazz up the flower
F hook
needle to weave in ends

I used the following yarns to make my flowers:
Plymouth Encore
Lion Brand Micro-fiber
Bernat and Moda Dea fancy yarns
Caron Simply Soft

Picot= ch3, sl st in top of dc
Join: Where ever it says join you can sl st to join or you can do an invisible join
Finishing off: Weave in ends or leave some ends for sewing on to another project
You can work the flowers in a single color or change colors at each round.

Ch8 sl st join to form ring; Ch1
15 sc in ring sl st to join

Ch8 Skip 2sc then sc in nxt st around, sl st to join, ch1

[(1sc, 1hd, 3dc, ch1,3dc, 1hdc, 1sc. ) all in the Ch 3 loop, ch1] repeat for each chain loop

Here's the first step which is the same as the basic flower.

Basic Flower and ....

If changing colors here: Join in any ch1 loop

*sl st into the back loop sts across then (1 dc, 1dc & picot, 1dc) into the ch1 space, sl st across previous sts* then repeat from *to* then join

Here's the finished flower.
Fancy Star Flower

I used a Mod Dea Fancy purple for the center, Caron Simply Soft for the first petal color a Caron Siply Soft Purple for the second color. I did not use a center effect option for the flower.

Center effect for the flower:
To create that pollen center effect in the flower, I suggest using a color with some texture to mimic the textured look many flowers have from stamens and pollen or a different color.

A: sc in each sc of the ring
B: sc ch1 around
