Do not be afraid from the apparent intricacy of this pattern! It is not easy, but suitable also for non-expert crocheters; furthermore I used a cotton yarn and a "big" hook (well, big to a threader...), so you will do it without big problems, I am sure!
Size : 18 cm (7 inches) diameter
Material: Lustersheen or equivalent cotton yarn, hook no. 3 (US C/D)
Stitches : ch, sl st, sc, hdc, dc, picot (= 5 ch, sc on 3rd ch), cluster (= 3 dc closed together).
Difficulty: medium to difficult.
Start with 10 ch, join ;
1. in lp work 16 sc ; join with sl st in first dc.
2. * hdc, 1 ch * ; Repeat from * to * 15 times more; join with sl st in first st.
3. 3 ch in first st (=dc), 2 dc closed together in same st (first cluster), 3 ch, *cluster in next hdc, 3 ch* ; Repeat from * to * 14 times more; join with sl st in first cluster. =>16 clusters
4. sl st in first 3-ch sp, 3 ch in sp (=dc), 2 dc closed together in same st (first cluster), 5 ch, *cluster in next hdc, 5 ch* ; Repeat from * to * 14 times more; join with sl st in first cluster.
5 . sl st in first 5-ch sp, sc in 3rd ch of sp, § 8 ch, sc in next sp, turn; 1 ch, 8 sc in 8-ch sp just made, 3 ch, turn; (dc, 2 ch) on each sc (=>8 sp), turn; in ea. 2-ch sp work 3 sc (#) (=>24 sc), turn; (picot, sk 2 sc, sc in next sc) 7 times, 3 ch, sc on last sc, sc on next 5-ch sp § . Repeat from § to § 7 times again; finish joining with a sl st in first sc between two dc in first petal (i.e. that made at point (#)); Cut thread, weave in ends.
