DIRECTIONS: Weave in ends as work progresses. To change color, work old color to last yo; yo with new color & draw through all loops on hook. Continue work with new color. Do not carry unused yarn colors along. Join a new ball for each section of color. On chart, each square represents one single crochet. Read odd-numbered rows from right to left, even-numbered rows from left to right.

TULIP MOTIF: Make 6 in 1st color combination. Make 4 in 2nd color combination. 10 tulip motifs total.
1st color combination: background color A, tulip color B.
2nd color combination: background color C, tulip color B.
With background color, ch 24.
Row 1 (RS): Sc in 2nd ch from hook & in each remaining ch across, turn—23 sc.
Rows 2–23: Ch 1, sc in each sc across; changing color as shown in tulip chart, turn.
Do not fasten off at end of Row 23. Begin working in rounds.
Rnd 24: With background color, ch 1, work 21 sc evenly spaced along each edge, working 3 sc in each corner; join with slip st in 1st sc—96 sc. Fasten off background color.
Rnd 25: Join tulip color with sc in center sc of any 3-sc corner, 2 sc in same sc (corner made), sc in each sc around, working 3 sc in center sc of each 3-sc corner; join with slip st in 1st sc—104 sc. Fasten off tulip color.

SURFACE SLIP STITCH TULIP OUTLINE: With RS of motif facing, hold hook on RS of piece & tulip color on WS of piece.
Insert hook from RS to WS near edge of tulip, yo & draw loop through to RS of piece; *move hook slightly forward & insert again from RS to WS, yo & draw loop through to RS & through loop on hook (surface slip st completed); rep from * working around entire edge of tulip to outline. Fasten off tulip color.

SOLID MOTIF: Make 6 with D. Make 4 with E. 10 solid motifs total.

dc in next 3 dc, ch 1] 3 times, sk next dc, dc in next 3 dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next dc (corner made),
dc in last 2 dc; join with slip st in 3rd ch of beg ch—4 ch-2 corner sps, 4 ch-1 sides sps, & 10 dc along each side.
Rnd 4: Ch 3, dc in 1st ch-1 space, dc in next 5 dc, [5 dc in next ch-2 sp, dc in next 5 dc, dc in next ch-1 sp, dc in next 5 dc] 3 times, 5 dc in last ch-2 sp, dc in last 4 dc; join with slip st in top of of beg ch—64 dc.
Rnd 5: Ch 3, dc in next 8 dc, [(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next dc, dc in next 15 dc] 3 times, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next dc, dc in last 6 dc; join with slip st in top of beg ch—4 ch-2 corner sps and 19 dc along each side.
Rnd 6: Ch 1, sc in each dc around, working 3 sc in each corner ch-2 sp; join with slip st in 1st sc—88 sc.
Rnd 7: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, working 3 sc in center sc of each 3-sc corner; join with slip st in 1st sc—96 sc.
