Crochet Pattern for a Double Flower

I got this pattern at BYU Women's Conference a few years ago.  They always have a crochet service project for you to sew if you want as you listen to speakers.  They took all the flowers we women crocheted in the two days of the conference, attached jewels to the center of them, and sewed them on to barrettes for little girls' hair.   So cute!  Since then I have made these flowers to decorate the little hooded towels that I made for my new granddaughter, Lily.  Enjoy!

Crochet instructions:

Chain 4, slip stitch into first chain to form a circle.
Single crochet 12 times in circle.  Slip stitch to connect to first single crochet.
Single stitch in first single crochet.
Chain 3, skip a stitch, single crochet in next stitch, repeat till you have 6 loops going around in a circle.  In the first loop, 1 single crochet, 5 double crochet.  Repeat for all loops.
Connect with slip stitch.  You should now have five petals.
Single crochet at the first "post" and then chain 7.
Single crochet at the second "post" (where the first and second petals join), and then chain 7 again.
Repeat for all petals.
Work the chains behind the petals.  Slipstitch to connect.
In first 7-chain loop, 1 single crochet, 7 double, 1 single.
Repeat on all 7-chain loops.  Single stitch to connect.  Tie off.
