INSTRUCTIONS:

IF YOU DO NOT WISH FOR THE 3D FLOWER – YOU CAN:
CH 6; SL ST into the first CH to form a ring; then CH 3(counts as 1 DC); work 15 DC into ring;
SL ST into top of 3 . (16 DC) – continue to RND 2!

With B

NOTE: Leave a long STARTING TAIL to sew your flower. DO NOT TURN WORK – in the pattern to complete each ‘petal’ you will work the SC into the side edge of the previous ‘petal’s’ SC.

FLOWER: CH 6; SL ST into the 3rd CH from hook; CH 2; SKIP 2 CH; work 1 SC into the last CH;
[CH 5; SL ST into the 3rd CH from hook; CH 2; SKIP 2 CH; work 1 SC into the SIDE EDGE of the previous SC] x 8 – 9 petals made;
[CH 7; SL ST into the 3rd CH from hook; CH 4; SKIP 4 CH; work 1 SC into the SIDE EDGE of the previous SC] x 9 – 9 petals made (18 petals altogether);
[CH 9; SL ST into the 3rd CH from hook; CH 6; SKIP 6 CH; work 1 SC into the SIDE EDGE of the previous SC] x 9 – 9 petals made (27 petals altogether);

SL ST into the 8th SC from hook – this will form your FOUNDATION RING.
Fasten off .

The flower will curl in a direction – using your starting tail – sew the flower together using the SC edge as a guide. Be careful not to sew your ‘foundation ring’ close! Fasten and weave in your tails.
