START WITH CTM
R1 = (thread pink) 1DS ?V (5x) MP CH1 = 1 - (9x)
Cl = (thread pink) 12 passes + MP
CH2 = 2DS + 2nd picot
CH3 = make 9 picots
Cl2 = 12 passes + 2nd picot. Make 6 petals
Start petals 2nd round, using the same picots of the previous round.
CH1 = 13 ?V 1ds locking
Cl = 18 passes
CH2 = 2DS + (2nd - 1st ROUND)
Make 6 petals. Finish with a bead in the center or place bead on Ring 1.

FAN - ROUND 1
CTM with dark green in 1st petals
CH 1 = 5DS ?V 5DS ?V 5DS ?V 5DS + (2nd petals)
Continue until the 5th petal
Thread dark green
Cl 1 = 19 passes (1 -)
Cl 2 = 19 passes + (2nd - CH 1 1st Round)
Cl 3 = 19 passes (1 -
Cl 4 = 19 passes + (3rd - CH 1 1st Round)
Continue until the 5th petals. CUT & TIE
CTM with water green
RI = 10DS + (1st - Cl 1/2) 10DS. Clr
CH1 = 3DS ?V 3DS
R2 = 10DS + (1st - Cl 1/2 ) 10DS. Clr
CH2 = 3DS ?V 3DS
Do until the 5th petal. CUT & TIE
CTM with thread white
Repeat the rings and chains equal to the 3rd row until the penultimate (next to last) picot of the 3rd row.
In ultimate (last) petal, make:
SR1 = 8DS + ( ultimate ?V 3rd round ) / 8DS. Clr
SR2 = 8DS / 8DS. Clr
CH = 3DS; SCH = 3DS
Do the 5th and 6th rounds the same way.
CTM with thread pink
CH = 1DS ?V (6X) + 4th ROUND. Continue around.
BIRD - ROUND 1
CTM with thread lilac
R = 3DS ?V 3DS. Clr
CH1 = 8DS + (R) 8DS + ( base R)
CH2 = 13DS + (CH1) 10DS ?V 1DS - 1DS + (base. Cut & Tie
CTM with thread blue starting at the base of the bird's head.
Use the block technique.
CH1 = 22DS
CH2 = 20DS
CH3 = 18DS
CH4 = 16DS + (Picot of head)
CH5 = 14DS
Invert the work to continue the body, still using the block technique.
CH6 = 4DS
CH7 = 4DS
CH8 = 3DS
CH1= 10DS (1DS Locking) 10DS + (CH8). REPEAT 2X.
TO FINISH THE BODY:
CH 9 = 3DS + (CH5) 12DS ?V 1DS ?V 1DS + (Picot of head). CUT & TIE
CTM with thread lilac staring on the 1st picot of CH5.
CH1 = 15DS (1DS Locking). Tat 7 picots in graduated sizes with 1 ds between them.
Embroider the bird's eye and beak, joining the beak to the fan.
