Starting at center, ch 2.

1st Rnd: 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook. NOTE: Hereafter pick up back loop only of each sc; do not join at end of sc rnds.

2nd Rnd: Make 2 sc in each sc around.

3rd Rnd: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc) 8 times.

4th Rnd: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc) 8 times.

5th Rnd: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc) 8 times. Join with sl st to back loop of next sc (40 sc)

6th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in joining, make 2 dc in back loop of each sc around (80 dc, counting ch-3 as 1 dc). Join to top of ch-3.

7th Rnd: Ch 4, * skip next dc, working through both loops make dc in next dc, ch 1. Repeat from * around. Join to 3rd ch of ch-4.

8th Rnd: Ch 3, 2 dc in joining (starting shell made), * ch 2, sc in next dc, ch 2, 3 dc in next dc (shell made). Repeat from * around,
ending with ch 2. Join to top of ch-3.

9th Rnd: Sl st in next dc, ch 3 and complete starting shell (starting shell over shell made); ch 3, * shell in center st of next shell (shell
over shell made), ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.

10th Rnd: Starting shell over shell, *ch 3, sc in next sp, ch 3, shell over shell. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join.

11th Rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4. Repeat from * around. Join.

12th Rnd: Repeat 10th rnd.

13th Rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 6. Repeat form * around. Join.

14th Rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4, sc in next sp, ch 4. Repeat from * around. Join.

15th Rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 8. Repeat from * around. Join.

16th Rnd: Repeat 14th rnd.

17th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in joining, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, ch 9, 2 dc in next dc. Repeat form * around. Join.

18th Rnd: Sl st in next 2 dc, ch 3, in same place as sl st make dc, ch 3 and 2 dc (starting open shell made); * ch 2, in center ch of next
loop make 2 dc, ch 3 and 2 dc (open shell made); ch 2, skip next 2 dc, make an open shell in next dc. Repeat from * around, ending
with ch 2.  (40 petals started).

19th Rnd: Ch 3, *dc in each dc to within next open shell sp, make an open shell in sp. Repeat from * around. Join.

Next 5 Rnds: Repeat 19th rnd. Mark th e10th dc each side of shell sp on next petal and every other petal around (40 markers).

25th Rnd: Sl st to first marked dc, ch 3, * dc in each dc to within next shell sp, in sp make 2 dc, tr and 2 dc; dc in each dc to within next
marker, holding back on hook the last loop of each dc, make dc in each of next 2 marked dc, thread over and draw through all loops
on hook (joint dc made and 1 front petal completed). Repeat from * around, ending with dc in last marked dc. Join to first dc. Remove
all markers and break off. Mark the 11th dc each side of each shell sp skipped on previous rnd.

26th Rnd: Attach thread to 5th dc preceding any shell sp, ch 3, * dc in each dc to within next shell sp, in sp make 2 dc, tr and 2 dc; dc
in each dc to within 1 dc of next marker, h dc in next dc, sc in each of next 2 marked dc (1 back petal completed), h dc in next dc.
Repeat from * around. Join to top of ch-3.

27th Rnd: Working over back petals only, ch 16, * sc in next tr, ch 11, skip next 6 dc, make a joint d tr going into next dc and 7th st on
next petal, ch 11. Repeat from * around, ending with skip 6 dc, d tr in next dc. Join to 5th ch of ch-16.

28th Rnd: Ch 4, * in next loop make (dc, ch 1) 5 times; dc in next sc, ch 1, in next loop make (dc, ch 1) 5 times; dc in next joint d tr, ch
1. Repeat form * around. Join to 3rd ch of ch-4.

29th Rnd: Shell in joining, *ch 3, skip next sp, sc in next sp, ch 3, skip next sp, shell in next dc. Repeat form * around. Join.

30th Rnd: *Shell over shell, (ch 5, dc in center of next shell) 3 times; ch 5. Repeat from * around. Join.

31st Rnd: * Shell over shell, (ch 3, sc in next sp, ch 3, dc in next dc) 3 times; ch 3, sc in next sp, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.

32nd Rnd: * Shell over shell, (ch 5, skip next 2 sps, dc in next dc) 3 times; ch 5. Repeat from * around. Join.

33rd Rnd: Repeat 31st rnd.

34th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in joining, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, ch 4, dc in next dc, ch 4, 5 dc in next dc, ch 4, dc in next dc, ch 4, 2 dc in
next dc. Repeat from * around. Join.

35th Rnd: Sl st in next 2 dc and complete a starting open shell, * ch 2, skip next 2 dc, open shell in next dc. Repeat from * around.
Join.

Next 5 rnds: Repeat 19th rnd. Mark the 9th dc each side of shell sp on next petal and every other petal around (80 markers).

41st Rnd: Repeat 25th rnd. Mark the 10th dc each side of each shell sp skipped on previous rnd.

42nd Rnd: Attach thread to 4th dc preceding any shell sp and complete as for 26th rnd.

43rd Rnd: Working over back petals only, ch 15, *sc in next tr, ch 10, skip next 5 dc, make a joint d tr going into next dc and 7th st on
next petal, ch 10. Repeat from * around, ending with skip 5 dc, d tr in next dc. Join to 5th ch of ch-15.
