go back on the intersection of the 5th and 6th space that was marked. It forms a cross. Go 6 stitches along each arm of the cross, making 3 trc in each stitch, then go back on the other side of the arm of the cross, always working 3 trc in each stitch. Do that for each arm of the cross then join to the first trc with a ss. Do a second round with 3 dc in each trc. Join with a ss. Break yarn and stop live stitch, weave in ends.Curlicues :
Chain 32 leaving a long tail of yarn, pick the hook in 3rd stitch from the hook, and make 3 dc per stitch, gently forming the curlicue with your finger as you go along. Break yarn, leaving a long tail. With this tail and the tail of the beginning, attach the curlicue to the flower by a ss.
Chain 42 and make and attach a second curlicue.
Hide ends of tails.
Contrasting colour :
fill the interior of each hole of the skeletton with a row of sc, passing 1 stich before and 1 stich after each angle of the skeletton. You'll need to break the yarn and hide the tails as you go, to avoid beeing overwhelmed by the number of yarn ends when you're finished.
