crocheting first doilie

can anyone help me understand rnd 9 sunburst pattern in Stella Beauties by leisure arts. I just can not figure out Fig. A

Is that the place where the round motifs are added to the doily? You'll have to give us a good chunk of text to see if we can help. One Ravelry crocheter has very little good to say about the pattern. I didn't look to see if there were others.
