welcome to the third and fourth weeks in our kinda crochet along:) for those just getting here I’ll be posting pattern I posted originally at the end:).

what’s new this week is the number of motifs  you need for the last color and the assembly…for E you need 46 motifs…. to finish using one A motif as center, potion the other six around it and sew tog, joining 2 shells of the center motif edge to each of the 6 motifs.
Sew twelve B motifs around these A motifs and so on, foll the chart.
Press according to yarn directions.
