I give up
I still think it's a good idea to use Catherine wheel joins for Wally Sosa's hibiscus, as I wrote here, but they're very time consuming. Even if you're good at Catherine wheel joins, which I patently am not, they have to be slower than the lock joins I resorted to. The original crochet chain is probably neater as well as quicker than either of them.
One good thing about this project is that I finished off the thread on several spools. I have great numbers of spools with just a smidgeon of thread on them, just as I have jam jars with only a smear of jam in them, and wine bottles containing a mere slurp!
