To begin, ch 6, join with sl st to form ring. 1st rnd: * Ch 7, s c in ring, repeat from * 3 more times. 2nd rnd: * Ch 6, 3 s c in next loop, repeat from * 3 more times. 3rd rnd: Ch 6, 3 s c in 1st ch-6 loop of previous rnd and 1 s c in each of next 2 s c picking up the back loop of st only, ch 6, 3 s c in next ch-6 loop and 1 s c in back loop of each of the 2 s c. Continue in this manner, making ch-6 be­tween groups, 3 s c over the ch loop and s c in each s c except the last, until the 8th rnd is completed (15 s c in each group). 9th rnd: * Ch 6, s c in ch-6 of previous rnd, ch 6, skip 1st s c of group, 1 s c in each of next 13 s c, picking up back loops only, and repeat from * around. 10th rnd: * Ch 6, s c in 1st ch-6 loop of previous rnd, ch 6, s c in next loop, ch 6, skip 1st s c of group, s c in each of next s c except the last s c of same group. Repeat from * around. 11th rnd: * Ch 6, s c in ch-6, ch 6, 4 d c in center ch-6 loop, ch 6, s c in next ch-6 loop, ch 6, skip 1st s c, s c in each of next s c excepting the last s c. Repeat from * around.

12th rnd: * Ch 6, s c in loop, ch 6, 3 s c under next ch, ch 3, skip 4-d c group, 3 s c in next loop, ch 6, s c in next loop, ch 6, skip 1st s c and make s c in each of next s c, omitting the last s c. Repeat from * around. 13th rnd: * Ch 6, s c in loop, ch 6, 3 s c in next loop, ch 10, skip the 3 s c, the ch 3 and the 3 s c, then make 3 s c in next loop, ch 6, s c in next loop, ch 6, skip 1st s c, s c in each of next s c, omit­ting last s c in group. Repeat from * around. 14th rnd: * Ch 6, s c in next loop, ch 6, 3 s c in next loop, ch 6, 4 d c in ch-10 loop, ch 6, 3 s c in next loop, ch 6, s c in next loop, ch 6, skip 1st s c, s c in each of next 3 s c. Repeat from * around. 15th rnd: Ch 6, s c in next loop, * ch 6, 3 s c in next loop, ch 6, 4 d c in next loop, ch 14, 4 d c in next loop, ch 6, 3 s c in next loop, ch 6, s c in next loop, ch 3, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around. 16th rnd: Ch 5, s c in center st of loop, ch 10, s c in center st of next loop, ch 10, s c in 5th st of corner loop, ch 10, s c in 10th st of same corner loop, and repeat making ch-10 with s c in each ch-6 loop and at corners make an extra ch-10 as directed, ending with ch-10, sl st to s c after first ch-5 in this rnd. Break off.

Joining Blocks: Hold 2 blocks together (with the wrong sides facing each other). With a sewing needle and crochet thread, attach to center st of the 2 corner loops of the blocks and sew together with 2 or 3 over and over stitches, do not break thread but make a running stitch through the ch-loop (be careful not to draw thread tight) on one block as far as next s c, then continue running stitch on the chain to the center of the next loop on the same block, and take 2 or 3 over and over stitches in the center of this loop and the one on the other block to join the two blocks together. Continue join­ing in this manner across the two blocks. Break thread. Join blocks into strips and then join the strips together the same way.

Edging. 1st row: Holding right side of work toward you, attach thread to the center st of any corner loop, ch 7, d c in same loop, ch 5, * s c in next s c, ch 8, d c in next s c, ch 6, d c in same s c, ch 8, repeat from * all around (skipping s c at joinings of blocks), ending row with ch 5, sl st to ch-7 loop first made. 2nd row: Ch 7, 4 d c in same loop, ch 3, d c in same loop, ch 6, * 2 s c in next s c, ch 8 d c in next ch-6 loop, ch 3, 4 d c in same loop, ch 3, d c in same loop, ch 8, repeat from * all around, ending row with ch 6, sl st in ch-7 loop first made. 3rd row: Ch 3, 3 d c in same loop, * ch 5, skip 4-d c group, 4 d c in next loop, ch 9, s c in next s c, ch 9, 4 d c in loop just before next 4-d c group, repeat from * all around, ending row with ch 9, sl st to 3rd st of ch-3 first made.
