Join with sl st to top st of first ch-3. 2nd rnd: Ch 1, * s c behind next d c-bar—to make an s c behind a d c-bar, insert hook between next 2 sts from back to front of work, pass hook over next d c and insert hook between sts from front to back, yarn over, draw loop through and finish as for an s c (s c will be behind d c-bar). Repeat from * around (30 sts). Join to 1st s c made. 3rd rnd: Ch 3 (to count as 1 d c), d c in same place as sl st, 2 d c in next st, d c in next 10 sts, 2 d c in next 5 sts, d c in next 10 sts, 2 d c in next 3 sts (40 sts).

Fasten off. Make another piece same as this.
