Color Sequence
Work in the following color sequence: 2 rows each of *A, B, C, A, B, D, A, B, E; repeat from * throughout, ending with 2 rows A.

Throw Measures: 48“ x 53“

With A, ch 147.
Row 1 (right side): Dc in 4th ch from hook, *dc in each of next 6 ch, skip next ch, dc in each of next 2 ch, skip next ch, dc in each of next 6 ch**, 2 dc in each of next 2 ch; repeat from * across ending last repeat at **, 2 dc in last ch, turn—8 pattern repeats.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc, here and throughout), dc in first st, *dc in each of next 6 dc, skip next dc, BPdc around each of next 2 dc, skip next dc, dc in each of next 6 dc**, 2 dc in each of next 2 dc; repeat from * across, ending last repeat at **, 2 dc in last dc, turn. Fasten off.
Row 3: With right side facing, join B with a slip st in first st, ch 3, dc in first st, *dc in each of next 6 dc, skip next dc, FPdc around each of next 2 dc, skip next dc, dc in each of next 6 dc**, 2 dc in each of next 2 dc; repeat from * across, ending last repeat at **, 2 dc in last st, turn.
Row 4: Repeat Row 2.
Row 5: With right side facing, join C with a slip st in first st, ch 3, dc in first st, *dc in each of next 6 dc, skip next dc, FPdc around each of next 2 dc, ch 1 (slip st, [ch 5, slip st] 3 times) around last FPdc worked, ch 5, (slip st, [ch 5, slip st] 3 times) around previously worked FPdc (flower completed), skip next dc, dc in each of next 6 dc**, 2 dc in each of next 2 dc; repeat from * across, ending last repeat at **, 2 dc in last st, turn.
Row 6: Ch 3, dc in first st, dc in each of next 6 dc, *skip next dc, 2 dc in center of flower, skip next dc, dc in each of next 6 dc**, 2 dc in each of next 2 dc; repeat from * across, ending last repeat at**, 2 dc in last st, turn. Fasten off.

Rows 8–74: Maintaining color sequence as established, repeat Rows 2–7 for pattern ending with Row 2 and A. Do not fasten off.
