I've designed it for my Cherry Blossom knit shawl, which I'm currently working on :)

Here's my symbol crochet chart for the flower:

You can use medium/aran weight yarn with a 5.5mm crochet hook for large flowers, which you can incorporate in accessories, such as shawls, scarves, bags, hair pins, barrettes, etc, or crochet thread #10 or even 30 with a corresponding crochet hook (1.75/1.50 mm) for tiny delicate flowers that you can make into earrings, rings, bracelets, or necklaces. Try other yarn-hook combinations too!

You are welcome to also check out my video.  It's pretty short - but it clearly shows how to work all of the stitches and the one-chain-picots at the top of the extended double crochet stitches. It also displays written instructions for the pattern. Note: if you have any little ones napping in the room - be sure to turn off the volume, the video has a soundtrack in the background:

For your convenience, here's a pdf file with the symbol chart pattern: Cherry Blossom Crochet Flower - Easy Crochet Pattern 1.

Lastly, here's the written crochet pattern for Cherry Blossom 1:

Foundation: sl lp.

Rnd1: ch1, 5 sc in sl lp; sl st in 1st sc to join.

Rnd2: ch3, dc, edc, (ch1, sl st in left-side-front-loop at top of edc, right below top loop of edc - at base of ch1 just made (see video demonstration above) to form a ch-1-picot (ch1p); edc, ch1p, dc, ch3, sl st in same sc as join. 1st petal made. 
(Sl st in next sc, ch3, dc, edc, ch1p, edc, ch1p, dc, ch3, sl st in same sc) 4 times. Sl st in 1st sl st to join; or: sl st in back loop of 1st sl st and/or back of dc base to join. Fasten off, weave in ends.    

If you're using two different colors - A and B, join color B after you slip stitch at end of round 1 (see symbol chart), i.e. begin Rnd2 by chaining 3 in color B. 

Happy Crocheting!
