How to Read Crochet Charts: A Flower Motif

A new how to read crochet charts guys! This one's taken from pinterest. Sharpen your hooks!
For the motif I used sport yarn (5 colors) and 1.9mm hook.
Pattern reads as follows:
Ch 4 and sl st in 1st ch to make a ring.
Round 1: Sc 8 in ring. Ch5 (3 as the 1st dc and 2 for the chain), dc1, ch2. Repeat the pattern in bold 6 times.

Round 2: Insert new yarn and sc over the dc below, sc2, make a (3-ch) picot, sc1 on the chain. Repeat the pattern in bold around. Sl st to end round.

Round 3: Insert new yarn and make a sc. Ch 6, skip 3 stitches and sc in the 4th st. Repeat this pattern for the whole round.

 Round 4: Insert new yarn. Ch 3 (counts as 1st dc of the cluster) and make a 2dc cluster. Ch 3, dc1 in chain below, ch3 and make another dc in the chain, ch 3 and make a 3dc cluster over the sc (between the chains) below. Next, ch 2, sc on the chain and ch2 more. Repeat these two patterns to the end of the round Sl st to end it.
Round 5: Insert new yarn and sc over the cluster below. Sc 3 on the first chain, ch 2 on the center chain make a trefoil (see picture explanation below) and sc 1 more. Sc 3 on the last chain.  Next, sc1 over the cluster below, ch1, dc1 over the sc below, ch3 and dc1 (again on the sc below), ch 1 and sc over the cluster below. Repeat these two patterns consequently to the end of round. Sl st to end it.

I already know how to use mine. Do you have any ideas?
