ROUND 2 (switch to medium pink): ch 6 (= 1 dc + 3 ch), * 1 dc in next sc, ch 3 *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 8 dc with 3 ch between each.
ROUND 3: ch 1, continue to crochet as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 3 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves, cut the yarn.
ROUND 4 (switch to raspberry): ch 7, * 1 sc between the next 2 leaves, ch 6 *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-spaces.
