Giant Flower take

Start with the giant flower but add rows of dc and sc, or another favourite stitch, maybe 'v' stitch or bobble stitch even to make a giant flower don't forget to increase every other row so it grows and lies flat 

Keep going until it is the size you want or make several and join them together...
