**Special Notes** How to get loop to back of work; Pull loop on hook out slightly, remove hook, insert hook from back to front between sc's of petals, place loop back on hook and pull through to back. Re-insert hook back through same space and insert hook through the sl st of round below, yo, and make a sl st.

Instructions:

With Baby Pink form a ring or ch 4 and sl st in first ch, ch 1.

Rnd 1: (Sc in ring)16 times, sl st in first sc, ch 1.

Rnd 2: Sc in same st as joining, ch 2, * sk 1 sc, sc in next st, ch 2, around ending with sl st in first sc. ( 8 ch 2 loops)

Rnd 3: Sl st into next ch 2 loop, ch 1 *(sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc) all in loop and every loop around, end with sl st in first sc. 

Following "Special Notes" above pull loop to back of work.

Rnd 4: Ch 4, *insert hook via directions above and make a sl st, ch 3 and rep around, ending with sl st in first ch of ch 4.

Rnd 5: Sl st into next ch 3 loop, ch 1 and work (sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc, sc) in each loop around, ending with sl st in first sc.

Rnd 6: Rep rnd 4, having ch 5 for first loop and ch 4 for the other 7 loops.

Rnd 7: Sl st into next ch 4 loop, ch 1 and work (sc, hdc, 5 dc, hdc, sc) in each loop around, ending with sl st in first sc.

Rnd 8: Rep rnd 4, having ch 6 for first loop and ch 5 for the other 7 loops.

Rnd 9: Sl st into next ch 5 loop, ch 1 and work (sc, hdc, 7 dc, hdc, sc) in each loop around, ending with a sl st in first sc.

Rnd 10: Rep rnd 4, having ch 7 for first loop and ch 6 for the other 7 loops, finish off.

With light Sage attach with a sl st to any ch 6 loop.

Rnd 11: Ch 3, 2 dc in same space, *ch 1, V st in next loop, ch 1, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next loop, rep around, ending with 3 dc, ch 1, sc in top of beg ch 3.

Rnd 12: (Make beg 2 tr cluster, ch 2, 2 dc cluster, ch 2) all in the same space, *2 dc cluster over 2 sts (2nd and 3rd dc of corner 3 dc group), ch 1, dc in next sp, ch 1, 2 dc cluster in ch 2 sp of V st, ch 1, dc in next sp, ch 1, 2 dc cluster over 2 dc (1st and 2nd dc of corner 3 dc group) ch 2, (2 dc cluster, ch 2, 2 tr cluster, ch 2, 2 dc cluster, ch 2) all in corner ch 2 sp, repeat around ending with 2 dc cluster, ch 2, sl st in top of beg 2tr cluster. finish off. With Soft White attach with a sl st to any 2 tr cluster.

Rnd 13: Ch 3, dc in same sp, *dc in next st, dc in next sp, dc in next st, dc in next sp, dc in next st, dc in next sp, dc in next st, dc in next st, dc in next sp, dc in next st, dc in next sp, dc, in next st, dc in next sp, dc un next st, dc in next sp, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in 2 tr cluster, dc in next st, repeat around, ending with 2 dc, ch 2 in same st as joining, ch1, sc in top of beginning ch. (21 dc to each side)

Rnd 14: Ch 3, dc in same sp and in next dc, *ch 1, sk next st, dc in next st, rep across to corner, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc), rep around, ending with 2 dc, ch 1, sc in top of beg ch.

Rnd 15: Ch 3, dc in same sp and in each st across to corner, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc), rep around, ending with 2 dc in same sp as joining, ch 1 sc in top of beg ch.

Rnd 16: Rep rnd 14, end this rnd with a ch 2, sl st in top of beg ch, finish off.

With Baby Pink join in any ch 2 corner space.

Rnd 17: Rep rnd 15, end this rnd with a ch 2, sl st in beg ch, finish off.

With Soft White attach with a sl st to any ch 2 corner sp Fudge Round- if your square measures 11 inches use hdc, if it measures 10 1/2 inches use dc.

Rnd 18: Using either hdc or dc, ch 2 or ch 3, 2 hdc/dc in same sp as joining, and 1 hdc/dc in each st around having 5 hdc or 5 dc in corner ch 2 sp, sl st to top of beg ch. finish off.

Bows:
Make 2 With Baby Pink and a sl st on hook and leaving long tails , ch 6, using back loop of beg ch, 3 tr in 5th ch from hook, ch 4 sl st in same st, sl st in next ch, ch 4, 3 tr in same st, ch 4, sl st in same st, ch 10, using back loops, sl st in 3rd ch from hook, and in next 7 sts, sl st in joining st, sl st in next st (the first 3 tr sp) ch 10, turn bow so back is facing you and using back loops, sl st in 3rd ch from hook and in next 7 sts. sl st in joining st. finish off. Pull tail to back of work and tie a hard knot, thread yarn needle with tail and pull through square at rnd 17 at a corner, 1st dc of 3 dc group, do the same with the other tail to opposite side of corner, using 3rd dc of 3 dc group. Take a few tacking sts and then weave in tails. Repeat with other bow in diagonal corner.
