As requested by vicarno's mama, here is the pattern for the flower pens. I did three styles of petals to show how you can change the pattern depending on what is your favorite. You could also design your own petals.
The pattern below is for this style of petal.
Use an f hook throughout. It fits a standard plastic pen.
Starting with your center color, use the magic circle and sc5 in a circle
Rnd 1: 2sc in each sc around (10)
Rnd 3: sl st, switch to petal color, *sl st in front loop only, ch8, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc1, hdc1, dc2, hdc1, sc1, sl st in original front loop* repeat 9 times (10 petals)
Rnd 4: switch to green, sl st in back loop left behind from Rnd 3, sc 10 in back loops (10)
Rnd 5: decrease, sc1, decrease, sc1, decrease, sc2 (7)
Rnd 6-15: sc around (7) sl st last stitch and weave in end.
Here is a photo of when I switched to the petal color in Rnd 3.
Here is a photo of when I switched to green in Rnd 4
After you have done Rnd 4 you can trim the yarn ends a little before you go on.
Here are some examples of other petal designs you could use. They are nice to brighten up a desk.
