INSTRUCTIONS:
Ch 4. Join with sl st to first ch to form a ring.
 
Rnd 1: Ch 2. 10 times in ring. Join with sl st to first dc. 10 dc and 10 ch-10 loops.
 
Rnd 2: Ch 2. 1 dc in same sp as sl st. *Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. 1 dc in next dc. Rep from * around. Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. Join with sl st to first dc. 10 dc and 10 ch-10 loops.  
 
Rnd 3: Ch 2. 2 dc in first dc. *Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. 2 dc in next dc. Rep from * around. Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. Join with sl st to first dc. 20 dc and 10 ch-10 loops. 
 
Rnd 4: Ch 2. 2 dc in first dc. 1 dc in next dc. *Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. 2 dc in next dc. 1 dc in next dc. Rep from * around. Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. Join with sl st to first dc. 30 dc and 10 ch-10 loops.
 
Rnd 5: Ch 2. 2 dc in first dc. 1 dc in each of next 2 dc. *Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. 2 dc in next dc. 1 dc in each of next 2 dc. Rep from * around. Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. Join with sl st to first dc. 40 dc and 10 ch-10 loops.   
 
Rnd 6: Ch 2. 2 dc in first dc. 1 dc in each of next 3 dc. *Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. 2 dc in next dc. 1 dc in each of next 3 dc. Rep from * around. Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. Join with sl st to first dc. 50 dc and 10 ch-10 loops.  
Step 2
Rnd 7: Ch 2. 2 dc in first dc. 1 dc in each of next 4 dc. *Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. 2 dc in next dc. 1 dc in each of next 4 dc. Rep from * around. Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. Join with sl st to first dc. 60 dc and 10 ch-10 loops. 
  
Rnd 8: Ch 2. 2 dc in first dc. 1 dc in each of next 5 dc. *Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. 2 dc in next dc. 1 dc in each of next 5 dc. Rep from * around. Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. Join with sl st to first dc. 70 dc and 10 ch-10 loops.   
 
Rnd 9: Ch 2. 2 dc in first dc. 1 dc in each of next 6 dc. *Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. 2 dc in next dc. 1 dc in each of next 6 dc. Rep from * around. Ch 10 (loop). Skip next ch-10 loop. Join with sl st to first dc. 80 dc and 10 ch-10 loops.    
 
Cont in same manner, inc 10 dc every rnd until work from center measures approx 27" , ending with odd numbered rnd. Do not fasten off. Draw up long loop in last st. After chaining loops (see below), return hook to last st to complete final rnd (see below).
 
Chaining Loops: Pick up ch-10 loops from 2nd rnd and pull through ch-10 loops from 1st rnd. Pick up ch-10 loops from 3rd rnd and pull through ch-10 loops from 2nd rnd. Pick up ch-10 loops from 4th rnd and pull through ch-10 loops from 3rd rnd. Rep in same manner for all ch-10 loops to end.
 
Final Rnd: Return hook to last st. Ch 2 (does not count as st). *1 dc in each dc to next ch-10 loop. 3 sc in ch-10 loop. Rep from * around. Join with sl st to first dc. Fasten off.
