When working the points of the leaves (from Round 12) crochet tr on the number of tr in each leaf, in addition to the first and last tr on each leaf, where you work 1 sl st. Continue working tr on 2 less tr per round until there are 3 tr left on each leaf, and now continue with Round 18, Round 19 etc.
