Tying Each Side
*Remember that the yellow yarn should be inside of the  green yarn when tied together.  To tie the right (left) side correctly in the 5th round,  the side with the  hole should be placed on top of the other side.  Have the 1st  3 pairs of holes on both sides       meet.  Insert one end into the 2nd pair of holes going to the right (left) direction.  Insert it in the next 16 holes.  Upon reaching the last hole, pull it lightly.  Tie it once.  Insert the shorter end into the nearest hole and pull it out into the center of the flower.  Tie it twice.  Pull the yarn tightly.  Just leave the extra yarn hanging on its side*.  Repeat from * to * for the left side.

Extend yarn longer before making (ch).  12 (ch) and (sl st) in 1st (ch).  Leave the extra yarn hanging.  20 (Sc) and (sl st) in 1st (sc).  20 (Dc) and (sl st) in 1st (dc).  Next round, 6 (ch) and (sl st) in 1st (dc) below.  [3 (Ch) and (dc) in next (dc) above.  3 (Ch) and (sl st) in next (dc) below]  19X.  3 (Ch) and (sl st) in 3rd (ch) of  6 (ch).  Extend yarn a little longer before cutting it.  Tie it once.  Use extra yarn to attach the small, fancy button aligning where the middle hole is. Tie it twice and hide the excess yarn.
