Row 3: Magnolia Centers Ch 1, sc in the same st, sc in the next 5 sts, magnolia center in the next st, sc in the next 11 sts, magnolia center in the next, repeat between * * to the last 6 sts, sc in the remaining st. Turn

Row 4: Note: I recommend working row 4 before working your flower petals for row 3. With Color A, ch 3, 1 dc in each st of the row. To maintain stitch count, pick up a stitch behind flowers or work 2 dc in the last st before each flower. Turn.
