1st Rnd: Ch 3, 2 dc in ring, (ch 9 3 dc in ring) 7 times; ch 9. Join.

2nd Rnd: Sl st in next dc, sc in same place, * ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc. Repeat from * around. Join.

3rd Rnd: Sl st in next 4 ch, sl st in sp, sc in same sp, * ch 3, sc in next sp, ch 5, sc in next sp, ch 11, sc in next sp, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 sp. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5, sl st in first sc.

4th Rnd: Sl st in first loop, ch 4, 8 tr in same loop, * ch 5, in next ch-11 loop make 3 dc, ch 5 and 3 dc; ch 5, skip next sp, 9 tr in next ch-3 loop. Repeat from * around. Join.

5th Rnd: Ch 5, (tr in next tr, ch 1) 7 times; * tr in next tr, ch 5, sc in next dc, ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc, ch 5, in next sp make sc, ch 5 and sc (corner loop); ch 5, sc in next dc, ch 5, (tr in next tr, ch 1) 8 times. Repeat from * around. Join to 4th ch of ch-5.

6th Rnd: Sl st in first sp, sc in same sp, * (ch 3, sc in next sp) 7 times; ch 5, sk next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 5) twice; in corner loop make sc, ch 5 and sc; (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice; ch 5, skip next ch-5 sp, sc in next sp. Repeat from * around. Join.

7th Rnd: Sl st in next loop, sc in same loop, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 6 times; ch 5, skip next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 5) twice; in corner loop make sc, ch 5 and sc; (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice; ch 5, skip next sp, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join.

8th Rnd: Sl st in next loop, sc in same loop, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 5 times; ch 5, skip next sp, (sc in next loop) twice; ch 5, skip next sp, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join.

9th Rnd: Sl st in next loop, sc in same loop, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 4 times; ch 5, skip next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 5) twice; in next corner loop make sc, ch 5 and sc, (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice; ch 5, skip next sp, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join

10th Rnd: Sl st in next loop, sc in same loop, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 9 skip next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 5) twice; in corner loop make sc, ch 5 and sc; (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice; ch 9, skip next sp, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join.

11th Rnd: Sl st in next ch, sl st in same loop, ch 3, holding back on hook the last loop of each dc make dc in next 2 loops, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (joint dc made), * ch 15, skip next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 5) twice; in corner loop make sc, ch 7 and sc; (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice; ch 15, skip next sp, make joint dc over next 3 loops. Repeat from * around. Join and break off.


SECOND MOTIF—Work as for First Motif until 10 rnds have been completed.

11th Rnd: Sl st in next ch, sl st in same loop, ch 3, make a joint dc over next 2 ch-3 loops, ch 15, skip next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 5) twice; sc in next corner loop, ch 3, sl st in any corner loop on First Motif, ch 3, sc in same corner loop on Second Motif, (ch 2, sl st in corresponding loop on First Motif, ch 2, sc in next loop on Second Motif) twice; ch 7, sl st in center ch of ch-15 loop on First Motif, ch 7, make a joint dc over next 3 ch-3 loops on Second Motif.
