I used a green, lavender and purple #10 crochet thread with a #5 steel hook
- Into a magic circle, hdc 10, finish off with ss in beg sc [10 hdc]
- 2 hdc in each hdc around [20 hdc]
- hdc in 1st sc of rnd 2; 2 hdc in next hdc; 1 hdc; fpdc into 2nd sc of rnd 1; hdc into next; [you have not skipped the hdc behind the fpdc], (hdc; 2 hdc in next; hdc, skipping 1 sc of rnd 1, fpdc into next; hdc) X 4; join with ss to beg[30 hdc, 5 fpdc]
- hdc into 1st hdc of rnd 3, hdc in next 3; (fpdc into fpdc of rnd 3, 4 hdc [you have not skipped the hdc behind the fpdc]) X 3; fpdc into fpdc of rnd 3; hdc; join to beg hdc and finish off. [35 hdc, 5 fpdc] Your work will begin to curl up, just as a real petunia would.
- With lavender, hdc into the hdc before the beg hdc of rnd 4; hdc into next 4 hdc, (fpdc into fpdc, hdc into next 4 hdc) X 4, fpdc into last fpdc; join to beg hdc [40 hdc, 5 hdc]
- ss to 3rd hdc of rnd 5, hdc, 3 dc, hdc in same st; (hdc, dc, fptrc, dc, hdc into fpdc; hdc, skip 2 hdc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc into next) X 4, hdc, dc, fptrc, dc, hdc into last fpdc, join to beg hdc, finish off [20 hdc, 25 dc, 5 trc]
