Step 2

DIRECTIONS
FLOWER (MAKE 16, 4 OF EACH COLOR)

CO 80 sts.
Row 1-4: Knit.
Row 5: *K2tog; rep from * across—40 sts.
Row 6: Knit.
Row 7: *K2tog; rep from * across—20 sts.
Row 8: Knit.
BO all sts, leaving long tail for assembly of rug.

Wrap strip into a spiral, using photo as your guide. Using long tail, and with the WS facing, tack the spiral down (where the flower will be a flat surface), allowing for the front to be 3-dimensional.
Note: the size of the flower will be different at this point. The finished flower size is determined by the assembly of the rug (when the flowers are sewn together).

Step 3

FINISHING
Referring to photo of rug and with the RS of the flowers facing up, hold the outer petal edge of two flowers next to each other and sew 1/6 of the circumference of each together. The flowers will each have a natural inner spiral petal.
Note: The flowers are sewn offset, so the circles are actually sewn as hexagons, with 1/6 of each side being sewn to 1/6 of adjacent flower’s side. Weave in ends.
