1st Rnd: Ch 4, 6 tr in ring, (ch 3, 7 tr in ring) 3 times; ch 3. Join with sl st to 4th ch of ch 4.

2nd Rnd: Ch 5, (tr in next tr, ch 1) 5 times; tr in next tr, * ch 5, (tr in next tr, ch 1) 6 times; tr in next tr. Repeat from * around. Join to 4th ch of ch 5.

3rd Rnd: Sl st in next sp, sc in same sp, * (ch 3, sc in next sp) 6 times; ch 3, 7 dc in next sp, ch 3, sc in next sp. Repeat from * around. Join.

4th Rnd: Sl st in next loop, sc in same loop, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 4 times; ch 3, (dc in next dc, ch 1) 3 times; in next dc make dc, ch 3 and dc; (ch 1, dc in next dc) 3 times; ch 3, skip next sp, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join.

5th Rnd: Sl st in next loop, sc in same loop, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 5, skip next sp, 5 dc in next sp, drop loop from hook, insert hook in first dc and draw dropped loop through (pc/popcorn - st made); (ch 2, pc st in next sp) twice; ch 3, 7 dc in next sp, ch 3, (pc st in next sp, ch 2) twice; pc st in next sp, ch 5, skip next sp, sc in next ch-3 loop. Repeat from * around. Join.

6th Rnd: Sl st in next loop, sc in same loop, * (ch 3, sc in next loop) twice; ch 5, skip next sp, pc st in next sp, ch 2, pc st in next sp, ch 5, (dc in next dc, ch 1) 6 times; dc in next dc, ch 5, skip next sp, pc st in next sp, ch 2, pc st in next sp, ch 5, skip next sp, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join.

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

8th Rnd: Sl st in next loop, sc in same loop, * ch 7, dc in tip of next pc st, ch 7, dc in next sp, ch 7, (sc in next loop, ch 3) 4 times; sc in next loop, ch 7, dc in next sp, ch 7, dc in tip of next pc st, ch 7, skip next sp, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, tr in first sc.

9th Rnd: Ch 3, dc in next sp, * (ch 7, sc in next ch 7 sp) twice; ch 7, (sc in next loop, ch 3) 3 times; sc in next loop, (ch 7, sc in next sp) twice; ch 7, holding back on hook the last loop of each dc, make dc in each of next 2 sps, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (joint dc made). Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, tr in top of ch-3.

10th Rnd: Sc in loop just formed, (ch 7, sc in next loop) 3 times; * ch 7, holding back on hook the last loop of each tr, make tr in next 3 loops, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (joint tr cluster made), (ch 7, sc in next loop) 6 times. Repeat from * around. Join.

11th Rnd: In each of next 3 loops make (2 sc, ch 3) 3 times and 2 sc; * ch 7, make a 3-tr cluster in next sp, ch 11, 3-tr cluster in next sp, ch 7, in each of next 5 loops make (2 sc, ch 3) 3 times and 2 sc. Repeat from * around. Join and break off.



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

11th Rnd: In each of next 3 loops make (2 sc, ch 3) 3 times and 2 sc; ch 7, 3-tr cluster in next sp, ch 5, sl st in any corner loop on First Motif, ch 5, 3-tr cluster in next sp on Second Motif, ch 7, (in next ch 7 loop make 2 sc, ch 3, 2 sc, ch 1, sl st in corresponding ch-3 loop on First Motif, ch 1, in same loop on Second Motif make 2 sc, ch 3 and 2 sc) 5 times; ch 7, 3-tr cluster in next sp, ch 5, sl st in next corner loop on First Motif, ch 5, 3-tr cluster in next sp on Second Motif.
