Tulip Motif Knitting

I came across a chart for a knitted tulip motif that is absolutely wonderful! I wrote out the instructions for those that do not like to read charts. If there are any errors please let me know in the comments section below. It knits up pretty easy in just a few short hours. I added a garter edge to mine which is not included in the pattern, the pattern represents the tulip only. Have fun!
