after i finished off the pattern and wove in the ends, i began the task of figuring out how to finish it off. the instructions r a bit confusing. but i finally did get the "petals" to look like the picture. u actually have to twist each one so the fold is correct. here is the finished piece. i added an extra row of sc with ch4 picots. I LIKE IT!!
the color used is CARON ONE POUND persimmon and RHSS soft white.
