Now work each petal this way:

FORM THE PINWHEEL
Turn your work, attach any color thread fold like a picture.
Do the filet row,* 3ch count as first dc, 2ch, 1 dc, skip 1 dc* of previous row repeat from * around..
Start the filet row in the top of any point.
See the drawing, join X with Y with dc.
Note: With filet you join the points and form the pinwheel, please see the pic.
In each stitch of filet: * sc, picot ( 3 ch, slip st in last sc), sc * repeat from * around.
You can buy a plastic ring and fill in it with sc or you can do it with thread this way:
Wrap your thread around your fingers, 6 times. Pull it of carefully leaving a hole in the center, this is where you will crochet with sc around. I can not say the number of sc, depends the size of the ring.
Sew the ring to the potholder in any petal.
Join weave in all threads and block
And That’s it, It’s ready your Pinwheel Potholder!
