Vintage Flower Octagon Pattern

This pattern is written using USA terminology. I've written the UK equivalents you'll need at the start of each round :)

Round 1

(dc = UK tr)

Ch 5, ss into 5th ch from hook to form a ring, ch 5, 1 dc into ring.

(ch 2, 1 dc into ring) 6 times, ch 2, ss into 3rd of 5 ch to join.

Round 2

(trc = UK dtr)

Ss into 1st 2 ch space. Ch 4, 3 trc into same space.

(ch 2, 4 trc into next space) 7 times, ch 2, ss into top of 4 ch to join.

32 sts (including the 4 ch at the start) and eight 2 ch spaces.

To join a new color: tie off first color. Join new color into same 3rd of 5 ch where you finished. Draw the yarn through the chain, then continue with Round 3, slip stitching into the space below.

Two rounds completedFirst two rounds crocheted.

Round 3

(trc = UK dtr)

Ss into space between 4 ch and 1st trc, ch 4, 1 trc into same space.

2 trc into each of next 2 spaces between the trc stitches. We now have 6 stitches (including the 4 ch) sitting on top of the 3 spaces formed by the 4 trc in the round below.

(Ch 2, skip 2 ch space, 2 trc into each of the next three spaces between trc stitches) 7 times.

1 stitch next space - remember we're crocheting all these 5 stitches together! - 2 stitches into next space, 1 stitch into next, 1 stitch next - 6 loops on hook, yarn over, pull through all loops.

Ch 6, ss into 2 ch space.

*Ch 6, trc6tog into the spaces between the next set of trc working thus:
