   Starting at center, ch 10, join with sl st. 1st rnd: 24 s c in ring, sl st in 1st s c made. 2nd rnd: S c in same place as sl st, * ch 5, skip 3 s c, s c in next s c. Repeat from * around. Sl st in 1st s c made—6 loops made. 3rd rnd: In each loop make s c, half d c, 3 d c, half d c and s c. Sl st in 1st s c made—6 petals made.
   4th rnd: Ch 5, 1 s c between petals with ch 5 between s c's. Join—6 loops made. 5th rnd: Repeat 3rd rnd. 6th rnd: Sl st between s c and half d c, ch 7, to count as d tr and 2-ch, * d tr between half d c and d c, (ch 2, d tr between this d c and next d c) twice; ch 2, d tr between this d c and next half d c, ch 2, d tr between this half d c and next s c, ch 2, skip 2 s c and half d c, make d tr between this half d c and next d c, (ch 2, d tr between this d c and next d c) twice; ch 2, d tr between this d c and next half d c, ch 2, d tr between this half d c and next s c, ch 2, skip 2 s c, make d tr between last s c and next half d c, ch 2. Repeat from * around, ending with d tr between last half d c and s c of 6th petal, sl st in 5th ch of ch-7 (33 d tr counting starting ch as 1 d tr).
   7th rnd: Sl st in next ch-2 sp, s c in same sp, * ch 4, s c in next sp. Repeat from * around, ending with s c in 1st loop made. 8th and 9th rnds: * Ch 5, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around, ending with s c in 1st loop made. 10th rnd: Same as 9th rnd, but making ch-6 loops instead of ch-5. 11th rnd: * (Ch 4, d c in 4th ch from hook) twice; s c in next loop—a 2-group loop made. Repeat from * around, ending with s c in last loop before 1st group. 12th rnd: * (Ch 4, d c in 4th ch from hook) 4 times; s c between first and second group just made, ch 4, d c in 4th ch from hook, s c between next 2 groups of previous rnd—a group loop made; (ch 4, d c in 4th ch from hook) twice; s c between next 2 groups of previous rnd. Repeat from * 15 more times. Fasten off.
   13th rnd: Leaves are made individually as follows: First Leaf. 1st row: Starting at center ch 11, s c in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 2, s c in same place as last s c, s c in each ch along opposite side of foundation chain. Ch 1, turn. Hereafter, pick up only the back loop of each s c throughout. 2nd row: S c in each s c across to the ch-2 sp; in the sp work s c, ch 2 and s c, then work s c in each s c along other side to within last s c, ch 1, turn—s c decreased.

Repeat 2nd row until there are 14 s c on each side of ch-2 sp. Ch 1, turn. To join, work s c in 9 s c, s c between 2nd and 3rd group of a 5-group loop, s c in each remaining s c on leaf to ch-2 sp, s c in sp, ch 1, s c between the 2 groups of next 2-group loop on center, ch 1, s c back in ch-2 sp of leaf, s c in next 5 s c, s c between 3rd and 4th group of next 5-group loop, s c in next 9 s c on leaf. Fasten off.

Second Leaf. Work same as first leaf until there are 14 s c on each side of ch-2 sp, but join as follows: Ch 1, s c in last s c of previous leaf, turn; s c in next 9 s c on Second Leaf, s c between 2nd and 3rd group of same 5-group loop to which previous leaf was joined. S c in each remaining s c on Second Leaf to the ch-2 sp, s c in sp, ch 1, s c between the 2 groups of next 2-group loop on center, ch 1, s c back in ch-2 sp of leaf, and complete joining in same way that First Leaf was joined. Fasten off. Make 14 more leaves like this, joining as Second Leaf was joined, and joining last leaf with s c to First Leaf to complete 13th rnd of doily. Do not fasten off. 14th rnd: Ch 3, skip 1 row of last leaf, ** d c at end of next row, * (ch 4, d c in 4th ch from hook) twice; skip 3 rows of same leaf, s c at end of next row. Repeat from * 2 more times, (ch 4, d c in 4th ch from hook) twice; d c in last row of same leaf, skip 1 row of next leaf. Repeat from ** around, ending with s c between the 2 groups of 1st loop made. 15th and 16th rnds: * (Ch 4, d c in 4th ch from hook) twice; s c in center of next loop. Repeat from * around. Fasten off.
   17th rnd: Motifs are made individually as follows: First Rosette Motif. Repeat 1st 6 rnds of doily. 7th rnd: Sl st in next ch-2 sp; s c in same sp, * ch 3, s c in next sp. Repeat from * around, ending with sl st in 1st s c made (33 loops). 8th rnd: Sl st to center of next loop, s c in same loop, * ch 3, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join. 9th rnd: Sl st to center of next loop, ch 7, to count as d c and 3-ch, s c in 3rd ch from hook—a p made; ch 1, (d c in same loop, p, ch 1) twice; d c in same loop, ch 5, skip 3 loops; in next loop make 4 d c with p and ch-1 between—a shell made; ch 2, s c in center of loop on last rnd of doily, * ch 2, skip 2 loops on motif, in next loop make d c, p ch 1 and d c; ch 1, s c in center of next loop on doily, ch 1, d c back in same loop as last d c on motif, p, ch 1, d c in same place on motif. Repeat from * once more. Ch 2, s c in center of next loop on doily, ch 2, skip 2 loops on motif, make a shell in next loop, ch 5, skip 3 loops, make a shell in next loop (p, ch 2, p, ch 1, skip 3 loops, make shell in next loop) 3 times, p, ch 2, p, ch 1, join with sl st to 3rd ch of ch-7 first made. Fasten off.

First Petal Motif. Starting at center, ch 12. Join. 1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 d c in ring, sl st in top of ch-3 first made. 2nd rnd: Ch 4, to count as d c and 1 ch, * d c in next d c, ch 1. Repeat from * around, sl st in 3rd st of ch-4. 3rd rnd: ** Sl st in next sp, ch 9, d c in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across, s c in next sp of previous rnd, ch 2, turn. Working along petal, make half d c between 1st and 2nd d c, * half d c between this and next d c. Repeat from * across one side, make 5 half d c at tip of petal, then work across opposite side to correspond, sl st into sp, ch 1, turn. S c in each half d c to tip of petal, 3 s c in center half d c, s c in each half d c across other side, s c in next sp of previous rnd—1 petal made. Repeat from ** until 8 petals have been made in all. Fasten off.
   4th rnd: Attach thread in 3rd s c down from tip at left side of 1 petal, ch 3, d c in corresponding s c of next petal, ch 4, sl st in center of second shell from joining on Rosette Motif; ch 3, s c at tip of same petal on Petal Motif; ch 3, skip 2 ch on Rosette Motif, s c in next ch. Ch 4, d c in 3rd s c down from tip of same petal, d c in corresponding s c of next petal, ch 3, sl st in center of next shell on Rosette Motif; ch 5, s c in tip of same petal, * sl st in center of next loop on doily, sl st in next 3 s c of petal, ch 3, sl st in center of next loop on doily; ch 3, sl st in corresponding s c of next petal, sl st to tip of same petal. Repeat from * once more. Sl st in center of next loop on doily, ch 8, d c in 3rd s c down from tip of same petal, d c in corresponding s c of next petal, ch 7, s c in tip of same petal, ch 7, ** d c in 3rd s c down from tip of same petal, d c in corresponding s c of next petal, ch 1, p, ch 1, shell at tip of same petal, ch 1, p, ch 2. Repeat from ** until 3 shells are made, ch 1, p, ch 2, sl st in 3rd ch of ch 3 first made. Fasten off. Alternate Rosette and Petal Motifs joining as first 2 motifs were joined—14 motifs in all. Join last motif on both sides.
