Continue with the flower:
R1: make 2sc in each of the 8sts in the ring = 16sc, join with sl st, 1ch
R2: make 2sc in each of the 16sts in the ring = 32sc, join with sl st
R3: 4ch, 1sc in next 2sts, (4ch, 1sc in the last st and 1sc in the next st) x 31, join with sl st, 1ch; join in the padding cord and make
R4: 11sc, 1hdc, 8dc, 1hdc, 1sc on the cord alone, turn
R5: working on the front loops only and over the cord make 1sc in each st from R4, drop the padding cord, make 1sc in the back loops of the sts at base of first 5 picot loops, turn
R6: skip the 5sc at back of the picot loops and make 1sc in each st on the petal that were done on the padding cord alone = 22sts, fasten off. Join in working thread in the 3rd sc from the 5 sc made in the back loops of the picot loops, bring the padding cord in front of work through the hole created by missing the 5sts and repeat from R4. Make 8 petals in total.
