  1. Hi Terry,

    I worked on the center and got that part looking mostly correct the second time around (can't do rounds without stitch markers!). The table top look on the center is really great. I am working with size 10 thread, which looks a little bigger than the photo shown here.

    The petals next ..I have been thinking about these. wouldnt it be great if you could modify these, layer them and you would end up with an agave. Here in the desert southwest I am inspired by cactus and succulents all the time.

    I would love to see you do some cactus. Barrel cactus especially, they are round but corrugated, spiny, with yellow fruit arranged neatly across the top.

  2. Hi Rama,
    Cactus would be an interesting project. I will add it to my "To Do" list and see what I can come up with.

  3. Hi teresa, I have made many of these petals but I think I am failing to understand the pattern. In Round 1, there seem to be 12 stitches, but on my foundation row there are 14. So is that decrease intentional?

  4. Anonymous,
    There are 7 single crochet to start the foundation of the petal. In round 1 of the petal, there are 16 stitches. I have edited the flower petal to reflect how many single crochet should be in each round. You will be increasing by 3 single crochet at each end, each round of the petal. It sounds like you may have missed increase stitches on round 1. There are not any decreases on the petal.
