 A colourful motif for all sorts of projects...

for cushions
stool cover
or chair seat cover.

All the same colour
or lots of different colours

Ch 8 or a two finger magic circle.
NOTE: A magic circle gives a cleaner finished round, no knot showing....wrapped 5 times around 2 fingers should give the correct size for 24 dc.

Round 1: 24dc into the circle keeping a large hole in the centre if you use the magic circle. sl st to complete round.

Round 2: 2dc in first st, 2dc in second st, miss a st and repeat until you have 8 'petals' sl st to finish round.
