Could you just up the number of chains by two and do more rows to make a larger flower and perhaps layer them to make a cluster flower?

@patricia5147 07786 46 that should work! I would suggest finding a larger pattern instead, however, since sometimes upping the chains on rounded patterns incorrectly can cause projects to bunch up. Hope that helps! -Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts.com


HELP!! This is very simple until I get to Step 6, round 5. I have ripped this back several times and made sure I do each step as directed, but it looks nothing like the picture! Its the chain 5 that is messing me up...is anyone else having a problem with round 5? Or have I lost the ability after all these years to read a pattern? Please help...I love the look of this flower.

To Sharon: It looks like round 5 is just like the previous one except you chain 5 rather than 3 between "flower petals". Hope that helps.
