Take the main yarn color and cut three 36" peices

here's a picture to help.
Now cut the extras off and tie a tight knot at the end.
Step 3: Theading the Needle
Now, cut about 20" of the contrasting yarn and thread it through the yarn needle.
Step 4: Forming the Flower
Take the needle and stick it through a strand of yarn near the knot.
Stick it through another strand 4"from the knot.
keep sticking it through stargnds 4" apart
(it should be through 5 strands).
Pull the braided yarn together to the knot.
Step 5: The Tricky Part
Re-thread the needle with the white yarn.
Stick the needle inside the nearest petals to the right , and under the white yarn.
Repeat inside all the other petals.
After you have finnished going through all the petals, turn it upside down and tie a square. knot with the two ends of the white yarn
