FIRST MOTIF—Starting at center, ch 10. Join with sl st to form ring. 1st Rnd: Ch 4, 4 tr in ring, (ch 10, 5 tr in ring) 3 times; ch 5, dtr in top of ch-4.

2nd Rnd: Ch 3 (to count as dc), 2 dc in loop just formed, * ch 7, sc in center tr of next tr group, ch 7, in next loop make 3 dc, ch 5 and 3 dc. Repeat from * around, ending with 3 dc in same place as first 2 dc, ch 2, dc in top of ch-3.

3rd Rnd: Ch 3, 2 dc in sp just formed, * ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, 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 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, 3 dc in next sp. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, half dc in top of ch-3.

4th Rnd: Sc in sp just formed, * ch 5, sc in next sp, ch 5, 5 tr each of next 2 sps, ch 5, sc in next sp. Repeat from * around. Join to first sc.

5th Rnd: Sl st in next 2 ch and in loop, ch 3, in same loop make 2 dc, ch 5 and 3 dc; * ch 5, (tr in next tr, ch 1) 9 times; tr in next tr, ch 5, skip next sp, in next loop make 3 dc, ch 5 and 3 dc. Repeat from * around. Join.

6th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, * ch 5, 3 dc in next sp, ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, (sc in next ch-1 sp, ch 3) 8 times; sc in next sp, ch 5, dc in next 3 dc. Repeat from * around. Join.

7th Rnd: Ch 3, dc next 2 dc, * (ch 5, sc in next sp) twice; ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, skip next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 3) 7 times; sc in next loop, ch 5, dc in next 3 dc. Repeat from * around. Join.

8th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, * ch 5, sc in next sp, ch 5, in next loop make 3 dc, ch 5 and 3 dc; ch 5, sc in next sp, ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, skip next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 3) 6 times; sc in next loop, ch 5, dc in next 3 dc. Repeat from * around. Join.

9th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, * (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice; ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, 3 dc in next sp, ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice; ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, skip next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 3) 5 times; sc in next loop, ch 5, dc in next 3 dc. Repeat from * around. Join.

10th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, * (ch 5, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, (ch 5, sc in next sp) twice; ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, (ch 5, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, skip next sp, (sc in next loop, ch 3) 4 times; sc in next loop, ch 5, dc in next 3 dc. Repeat from * around. Join.

11th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, * (ch 5, sc in next loop) 4 times; ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 5, in next loop make 3 dc, ch 5 and 3 dc; ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, (ch 5, sc in next loop) 4 times; ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 7, skip next sp, holding back on hook the last loop of each tr, make tr in next 4 loops, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (joint tr cluster made); ch 7, dc in next 3 dc. Repeat from * around. Join and break off.



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

11th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, (ch 5, sc in next loop) 4 times; ch 5, dc in next 3 dc, ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 5, 3 dc in next loop, ch 2, sl st in any corner loop on First Motif, ch 2, 3 dc in same loop on Second Motif, ch 2, sl st in next loop on First Motif, ch 2, sc in next loop on Second Motif, ch 2, sl st in next loop on First Motif, ch 2, dc in next 3 dc on Second Motif, (ch 2, sl st in next loop on First Motif, ch 2, sc in next loop on Second Motif) 4 times; ch 2, sl st in next loop on First Motif, ch 2, dc in next 3 dc on Second Motif, ch 3, sl st in next loop on First Motif, ch 3, make a joint tr cluster over next 4 ch-3 loops on Second Motif, ch 3, sl st in next loop on First Motif, ch 3, dc in next 3 dc on Second Motif, ch 2.
