Flower Instructions For A Happy Valentines Day!

Two of these hearts have a fun and easy flower that's all chains. They just spin around.


 I invented a cool easy pattern  for a flower!
at least I haven't seen one like it yet! 
I want to call it my "first flower" because it is done with all chain and no rings and for those who haven't learned rings yet, can tat this! The red heart in center at top photo also shows a variation of this flower too, so yours can be unique to you!
below is basic instructions and picture of back side of flower!

With two shuttles in two different colors you just start with  4 double stitches and picots in between all double stitches then connect at beginning and make 8 more ds. with picots and connect  at top and then 16 with picots connect, then you switch shuttles, begin with other color for petals.  Each petal has 8 double stitches separated by 2 picots attach petals every 4 picots of opposite color.  Till you have 5 petals. I made one mistake on this one at end I should have connected ant same place picot started! As shown on the last heart above!
You can have lots of fun changing color and size of flower adding mor
e petals and larger centers too!
Let me know if you want further instructions I am not that great with writing them out, got to work on that!
