    Hello! I love this CAL so much. I have a question: in round 6 (UK terms), are there slip stitches between the petals? I figured there was only one at the beginning and the end of the round, but in round 7 the pattern says sl st between dc pairs at base of petals, and I’m a bit confused about how to do that. Thank you for your help in advance.

      Hi Betty! No there are no slip stitches between the petal (only after you’ve put round 7 on. There should be a gap between your dc (see picture from round 7) where you can sl st when making your chains around the petals. Hope this helps. Mandy xx
