Row 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in same, 3 dc in next and in each around. Join. (30 dc)
Row 3: *Ch 6, skip 4, sl st in next* Repeat *to* around for a total of 6 ch spaces. The last sl st should be worked in the same sp as the beginning ch and counts as your join.

Now you will work behind the petals you just created and in the unworked stitches from row 2. The stitches you want to work into are directly to the left of the stitches you sl st-ed into for row 3. In the photo below I marked the stitches you should be using.
