I was too impatient to start this pattern. I did not study the pattern thoroughly and had to stop here.
After starting a second time, this is what it should look like.
The darker 'stars' should have been tatted first and then joined to the centre.
I think the shape of this motif is visually very appealing.
Pattern is from The Tatted Artistry of Teiko Fujito.
Tatted in Flora Size 20 in #208 and #234.
