Picot, ch 3, sl st back into first ch, or through center of sc if that is where you started from.
Small picot = ch 1, sl st back into ch

Measurements:
Completed flower measures 3” across

Additional Notes:
-Ch-1 at beginning of row does not count as a stitch
-I used a smaller hook and tighter tension than I usually use to achieve a stiffer flower
-Starching your flower once it is finished should help it hold its shape for longer
