Use this stitch to cast on 4 more stitches (5 in total) and repeat from ** to give desired number of petals (3, 4 or 5)

If you'd like a larger flower then simply cast on 7 stitches and follow the same principle of working only on the centre 5 stitches for the first 6 rows and then decreasing by knitting 2 stitches together at both ends of the following rows until you have a single stitch again. Repeat for the desired number of petals.

To finish: thread end through last remaining stitch and then gather up the middle of the flower by catching up 2 stitches the from base of each ‘petal’, pulling up tight and tying off the end

I've made the 4 petals I want, and I've threaded the end through the last remaining stitch. But when she says to "gather up the middle of the flower by catching up 2 stitches the from base of each 'petal', pulling up tight and tying off the end", I don't know what any of that means.

What does she mean catch up 2 stitches, how do I pull them tight, and then what do I do?

This part should be done with your yarn on a tapestry needle. Cut a long tail and thread the needle, pull that through the sts like a drawstring. Then fasten off the tail sewing on the WS, maybe making a small knot..
