Flower 3
Start with a round braid of 4 strands using green string, end the braid with a crown knot. Place 2 coloured strings on the knot. Make a crown knot over the new strings. Bring your green strands down between the coloured ones. Tie a wall knot of 4 ends around the braid and tighten well. Bring the rests of the green strings back up. Tie with the coloured ends a crown knot over 2, keeping the green ends coming out in the middle.
Now make a petal knot with 3 turns, (this is one more than in the drawings,) followed by one with 4 turns, and end with a petal knot with 6 turns, up side down.
Cut your strings short and melt the ends, tuck them away into the knot. Cut your green strings short as well, they stay rather visible.
In the view from above you can see the petal knot with 3 and with 6 turns well.
