Making the large motif
Ch 4 and sl st in beginning ch to form a ring, *(ch 3 and sl st into ring.)* repeat this 9 more times until you have 10 small petals.
Fasten off and change colors.
Now working in the back sts, attach your new color to one of the back sts, as shown below.
*(Ch 3 and sl st into next back st)* continue that around until you have 10 small white petals.
At the end of row you want to sl st into the nearest petal to your left and ch3, dc 4 more, then turn your work to the back and sl st into the top of the beginning ch 3 st to create the popcorn st. Ch 2. Repeat making a popcorn and ch 2 until you have 10 popcorn sts. Fasten off yarn.
Attach your green yarn into one of the ch 2 spaces and dc 2, then dc 2 into the loop created at the top of the popcorn st when you made it.
(top space of the popcorn) continue to dc 2 around for a total of 40 dc's. Fasten off yarn.
Attach the black yarn into any st and ch 1, then working to the right sc backward, which is called a crab st.
Continue that all the way around and leaving yourself a tail to sew your flowers together cut yarn.
Making the small motif
With your yellow yarn create the beginning flower again, working the first two rows. (only the second row instead of white, use Black.)
Change to black and do ch 3 sl st into back of next st. Like you did before. Fasten off yarn.
Now to sew the rug together. To make sure the rig stays on the front side, you want to sew using the back sts like shown in the picture
Sew through back loops only
Each of the top three rows will be 7 large motif's and 6 small motif's.
On the fourth row you will also be using 6 small motif's, but only 5 large motif's. On the fifth row you will be using 4 small motif's and 3
large motif's as seen below.
Finish sewing in all your tails and your done! Enjoy!
