 “From deep within the soul and somewhere in the heart, there was the tiniest of rumbles and a million tiny sparks.

Turning nothing into something this was only just the start, and when it was all finished it split up into ten different parts.”

You should now be before the ch3, you will crochet around both the ch3 AND in the stitches

sl st, hdc, dc,

^^the following () is to be crocheted in just one st but around 2 chs (not at the same time), you will start in the st and around the ch3 you are already in, then making a FPdc around the toffee popcorn, and continuing still in the same st and around the next ch3^^

(2 dc, FPdc around toffee popcorn, picot2b, 2 dc), dc, hdc, sl st, sk st, sc, hdc, (dc, picot2b, dc), hdc in next 2 sts, esc around dc2tog, hdc, (dc, picot2b) (dc, 2 hdc) in ch2-sp, sl st in bl behind the 1st picot3a

Corner leaf bunch done!

^^For this part you will be crocheting in front of the picot rnd from rnd 16. When you are done you will pull the picots through the spaces made making them pop up like little flower buds. You will be working FPdc2tog in front of them and small chains to go behind them creating the spaces mentioned. If you look at this section you should clearly see gaps in between the chains you made from rnd 14 that were attached to your work with BPsl-st, and these are the ones that you will place your FPdc2tog around EXCEPT for the one in front of the picot6a which is placed in the ch1-sp from rnd 13. There are six of these places, just like there are six picot3a, so in the pattern the 1st one will be in front of the 1st picot3a. ^^

ch1, FPdc in front of 1st picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 1st AND 2nd picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 2nd AND 3rd picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 3rd picot3a AND in the ch1-sp in front of picot6a, ch3, FPdc2tog in the ch1-sp in front of picot6a AND in front of the 4th picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 4th AND 5th picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 5th AND 6th picot3a, ch2, FPdc in front of the 6th picot3a, ch1, sl st in bl behind the 6th picot3a

Flowerbud section to the right done!

(sc, 2dc, picot2b, hdc), hdc in next 2 sts, sc

Now you will jump over the ch4 and crochet over it, so it will come through your work when you are done. You might need to push it a little to the side to reach to the next stitch

sl st, 2 hdc in each of the next 2 sts, (dc, ch2, dc) in ch1-sp, 2 hdc in each of the next 2 sts, sl st,

Again you will be crocheting over the ch4

sc, hdc in the next 2 sts, (hdc, dc, picot2b, dc, sc), sl st in bl behind picot3a

Middle leaf bunch done!

ch1, FPdc in front of 1st picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 1st AND 2nd picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 2nd AND 3rd picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 3rd picot3a AND in the ch1-sp in front of picot6a, ch3, FPdc2tog in the ch1-sp in front of picot6a AND in front of the 4th picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 4th AND 5th picot3a, ch2, FPdc2tog in front of 5th AND 6th picot3a, ch2, FPdc in front of the 6th picot3a, ch1, sl st in bl behind the 6th picot3a

Flowerbud section to the left done!

Rep from * til end
