Blocking

I suggest blocking your loops for the best results. For a tutorial on how to block your project, check out:

All About Blocking

If you have a blocking board: Lay your work down flat and secure your crochet foundation row with pins being sure to stretch your work slightly as you pin. Pull each loop up so that they are oriented directly above the sc foundation and pin them one by one to the blocking board.  Saturate with a spray bottle filled with water. Allow to fully dry before assembling your flower.

Finger blocking: pull each loop straight up from the sc foundation row with your fingers. This will stretch the loops to their maximum size and train them to stand up. I found it helpful to feed each loop through a knitting needle and pulling on the sc foundation to stretch the loops uniformly.

Assembly

Orient your work flat on a table with the loops facing towards you. With your left hand, press the loops upward starting on the right side of the work. With your right hand, begin to roll the work from right to left. As you roll your flower, be sure to move every loop so that they are facing upward. Once you have rolled the entire strip, use a darning needle to secure the base. I threaded the tails into my darning needle and stuck it in one side and fed it through to the other multiple times until the whole flower was secured.
