Then work the petals thus:

Row 1: yo, k2 tog, (p1, k1) five times, p3tog, (k1, p1) five times, k1; now turn, and using the 6th needle proceed:

Row 2: yo, k2tog, *p1, k1. Repeat from * to end of row, turn

Row 3: yo, k2tog, (p1, k1) four times, p1, k3tog, (p1, k1) five times.

Row 4 and alternate rows: As row 2.

Row 7: yo, k2tog, (p1, k1) three times, p1, k3tog, (p1, k1) four times.

Row 9: yo, k2tog, (p1, k1) three times, p3tog, (k1, p1) three times, k1.

Row 22: yo, k2tog, p1, k1

Row 23: yo, k2tog, p2tog

Row 24: yo, k3tog.

Row 25: k2tog. Finish off.

Now take the next 26 stitches and work them in the same way, then continue round until you have all the petals completed. Fasten off all ends securely.
