Pinecones!!


This is my first original pattern. I was trying to come up with something I hadn't seen before in the world of crochet, so I thought pinecones!!!
Rnd 1: 6 sc in a ring, pull closed
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc)
Rnd 3: (sc in next sc, inc in next) around (18 sc)Rnd 4: (sc in next two sc, inc in next) around (24 sc)
Rnd 5: (sc in next three sc, inc in next) around (30 sc)
Rnd 6a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (10 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 6b: In the back loops of rnd 5, (sc in next 8, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (27 sc)
Rnd 7: Sc in each sc around (27 sc)
Rnd 8a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (9 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 8b: In the back loops of rnd 7, (sc in next 7, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (24 sc)
Rnd 9: Sc in each sc around (24 sc)
Rnd 10a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (8 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 10b: In the back loops of rnd 9, (sc in next 6, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (21 sc)
Rnd 11: Sc in each sc around (21 sc)
Rnd 12a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (7 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 12b: In the back loops of rnd 11, (sc in next 5, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (18 sc)
Rnd 13: Sc in each sc around (18 sc)
Rnd 14a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (6 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 14b: In the back loops of rnd 13, (sc in next 4, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (15 sc)
Rnd 15: Sc in each sc around (15 sc)
Rnd 16a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (5 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 16b: In the back loops of rnd 15, (sc in next 3, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (12 sc)
Rnd 17: Sc in each sc around (12 sc)
Rnd 18a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (4 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 18b: In the back loops of rnd 17, (sc in next 2, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (9 sc)
Rnd 19: Sc in each sc around (9 sc)
Rnd 20: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around (3 "petals")
Fasten off, stuff and close hole.
