twice, yo and through 4 loops on hook–one 3-trc cluster made.

4-Trc Cluster: * (yo hook) 2 times, draw up a loop in next ch-space, (yo and through 2 loops on hook) 2 times, repeat form *

Motif: Make 59 (85). Ch 8, join with sl st to form a ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 7 for first trc and ch 3, * trc in ring, ch 3; repeat from * 6 times more–8 trc counting starting ch. Join with sl st to
4th ch of starting ch.

Rnd 2: Sl st in ch-3 space, ch 4 for first trc, in same space work 3-trc cluster, ch 4, 4-trc cluster for corner, * ch 5, sc in next
ch-3 space, ch 5, in next ch-3 space work 4-trc cluster, ch 4, and 4-trc cluster for corner; repeat from * 2 times more, end
ch 5, sc in next ch-3 space, ch 5, join with sl st to top of 3-trc starting cluster–4 corners made.

Rnd 3: Sl st in ch-4 corner, ch 4 for first trc, in same space work 3-trc cluster, ch 4, 4-trc cluster for corner, * (ch 5, sc in
next ch-5 space) 2 times, ch 5, in ch-4 space between clusters work 4-trc cluster, ch 4, and 4-trc cluster for corner; repeat
form * 2 times more, end (ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space) 2 times, ch 5, join with sl st to top of starting ch.

Rnd 4: Sl st in ch-4 corner, ch 4 for first trc, in same space work 3-trc cluster, ch 4, 4-trc cluster, * (ch 5, sc in next ch-5
space) 3 times, ch 5, in ch-4 space between trc clusters work 4-trc cluster, ch 4, 4-trc cluster; repeat from * 2 times more,
end (ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space) 3 times, ch 5, join with sl st to top of starting cluster.

times, in corner work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc; repeat from * 2 times more, end ( 4 dc in next ch-5 space) 4 times, join with sl st to
top of starting ch. Turn.

Rnd 6: Working from wrong side, ch 2, for first hdc, hdc in each dc around, at each corner work 3 hdc. Join with sl st to top
of starting ch.

Half Motifs: Make 4. Ch 4.

Row 2: Sl st in first dc, ch 2 for first dc, 2 dc in same dc as ch-3, dc in each of next 3 dc, 3 dc in top of ch-3 of row 1. Turn.

Row 3: Sl st in first dc, ch 3 for first dc, dc in same dc as ch-3, dc in each of next 7 dc, 2 dc in top of turning ch. Turn.


Row 4: Sl st in first dc, ch 3 for first dc, dc in same dc as ch-3, dc in each dc to last st, 2 dc in top of turning ch. Turn.
