A Flower a Day: Crochet Corkscrew Spiral Flowers

Materials: Acrylic DK yarn
Techniques: Crochet

These are super-easy to do, just crochet a foundation chain and then do 3 trebles (UK or double crochet US) into each chain on the way back.  I think there may be an optimum length for the foundation chain, but don't know what it is.  Too long, and you end up with a corkscrew shape.  To short, and it's not a very full flower.  I think the spice coloured one works best, and I think I chained 30 or so as the foundation.
As you can see, I haven't fastened off the ends - that will come when I decide what I'm going to do with them.
