For those of you who prefer to work with visual aids, I am also enclosing a video tutorial. This is for a slightly different Poinsettia pattern, but it will at least give you an option. This has been created separately by Kristi Simpson – many thanks Kristi!

Some of you have had problems with crocheting the center of the flower. This is a response thread from the designer to the this issue, which hopefully will help:
I am working on this beautiful pattern and enjoying it very much. I’m still working on the petals, but I glanced ahead to the yellow center, and I wondered if you could help me understand the instructions a little better.
So I will work 6 sc in the magic ring. And then in Rnd 2, I’m supposed to end up with still only 6 st, but that is where I’m having trouble understanding. If I work one sc, ch 2, and one more sc in each stitch around, wouldn’t that mean a total of 24 st?
I’m sorry I’m having trouble, and thank you for any help you are able to give. It is such a lovely pattern!’
‘Sorry for the confusion: it’s 6 of the resulting looped stitches, where each loop is formed by a sc, ch 2, and another sc in the same stitch.’
If you still find this confusing, we have have now also added a video to the page which uses a similar technique.
