A—2 yd Pink
B—15 yd Kelly Green
C—20 yd Bubblelicious
D—2 yd White
E—10 yd Sweet Pea
Hook US I, or 5.5 mm
Stitches Beg trc cluster—ch-4, work 2 more trc, each time leaving the last step out so there are now 3 loops on hook, yo and draw through all three loops on hook.
Trc cluster—Work 3 trc, each time leaving last step out, so there are now 4 loops on hook, yo and draw through all four loops on hook.
Round 1: Using Color A, ch-4 and join to first ch with sl st, then ch-3 as first dc, work trc, dc, ch-1, (dc, trc, dc, ch-1) x3, sl st to first ch-3. Fasten off. (4 three stitch groups and 4 ch-1 spaces)
Round 2 : Join Color B to any first dc of any cluster. Ch-2 as hdc, sc into trc, hdc into dc, then [corner in ch-1 sp as (2 hdc, ch-2, 2 hdc), then hdc in dc, sc in trc, hdc in dc] x 3, then work corner in final ch-1 sp and sl st to the top of first ch-2. Fasten off. (4 sc, 24 hdc, and 4 ch-2 sp)
Round 3: Join Color C with a sl st to any corner ch-2 sp, work beg trc cluster, ch-3, trc cluster, then corner as (cluster, ch-3, cluster), then (ch-3, sk 3 st, trc in next 2 st, ch-3*, corner in ch-2 sp) x 3, then work to *only and sl st to top of beg trc cluster. Fasten off. (8 trc, 8 clusters, 12 ch-3 sp)
Round 4: Join Color D with a sc to any corner sp. Work 4 more sc into corner. Then 3 sc into each ch-3 sp, 1 sc in each trc, and 5 sc into corner sp around. Sl st to first sc. Fasten off. (52 sc)
Round 5: Join Color C with a sl st to any corner sc (center of the 5 sc corner groups) Work into that sc(beg trc cluster, ch-3, trc cluster), then [ch-2, sk 2, trc cluster, ch-2,sk 2, trc in next 3 st, ch-2,sk 2,, trc cluster, ch-2*, sk1 work corner as (trc cluster, ch-3, trc cluster)] x 3, then work to * only, sl st to beg trc cluster. Fasten off. (16 clusters, 12 trc, 4 ch-3, 16 ch-2)
Round 6: Join Color E with a sl st to any corner ch-3 sp. Ch-3 as dc, then in same sp, ( 2c, ch-1, 3 dc), then [(3 dc in ch-2 sp) x 2 , dc in 3 trc, (3 dc in ch-2 sp) x 2* , (then corner in ch-3 sp as (3 dc, ch1, 3 dc)] x 3, then work to * only and work dc into first ch-3 sp. Sl st final dc to top of first ch-3. Fasten off. (84 dc, 4 ch-1 sp)
Round 7: Join Color B with a sl st to any corner ch-1 sp. Ch-3 as dc, then work in same sp (dc, trc, 2 dc), then work a dc into each dc around, and work corners in ch-1 sp as (2 dc, trc, 2 dc). Sl st last dc to top of ch-3. Fasten off. (100 dc, 4 trc)
Round 8: As desired to get to size. If making a sc or hdc round, work 3 sc or 3 hdc into each corner trc and sc or hdc into each st along sides. If making a dc round, work corners as (2 dc, ch-2 , 2dc) or (2 dc, trc, 2dc) and dc into each st along sides.
