Border:
Starting in a corner, join yellow yarn with a SC, CH2, SC into corner. Work 1 SC into next 3 SC:
*(CH2, SL ST into CH1 space of Flower Petal, CH2, SL ST into top of last SC made), work 1 SC into next 5 STS, (CH2, SL ST into CH1 space of Flower Petal, CH2, SL ST into top of last SC made), work 1 SC into next 3 STS, repeat from * around blanket, SL ST into first SC made. FO and weave in ends.

Note: This can be a daunting task, I made 10 flowers at a time and
attached them to the blanket.ย 
This way it breaks the repetitive cycle of doing just one thing!
