I just worked up a swatch of this and it turned out pretty darn close. Here's what I did: I did a chain 4 and then I did enough dc in first ch to make a circle, joining with a slip stitch to first "dc." Then I switched to DPNs and picked up stitches in the top loops of all the dc. I then purled a row, knit a row, and purled a row. Then I knit one more row and bound off knitwise.

It looks pretty close, but the key is making sure you use large enough needles so that your flower doesn't become a cup!
