DIRECTIONS:

Throw measures 62" diameter.
GAUGE: 12 sts = 4"; 7 rows= 4" in de with larger hook. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

Special Abbreviations
inc (increase) = 2 de in next de.
dec3 (decrease)= Yo and draw up a loop in next de, yo and draw through 2 loops, skip next de, yo and draw up a loop in next de, yo and draw through 2 loops, yo and draw through all 31oops on hook.

NOTE: Join and cut colors as required, always joining new color in a ch-2 space. When possible, carry yarns loosely along wrong side of work, twisting every other row to avoid long strands.

With larger hook and C, ch 5; join with a slip st to form a ring. Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as a de), 15 dc in ring; join with a slip st in top of ch-3- 16 dc.

Round 2: Ch 3, de in same st as joining, inc in each de around; join- 32 dc.

Round 3: Ch 3, de in same st as joining, [inc, dc in next de] 15 times, inc in last de; join- 49 dc.

Round 4: Join A in same st as joining, ch 3, dc in next de, [inc, dc in next 3 de, inc, dc in next 2 dc] 6 times, inc, dc in next 3 dc, inc; join - 63 dc.

Round 5: With C, ch 3, de in next 2 dc, dec3, dc in next 3 dc, [ch 2, dc in next 3 dc, dec3, dc in next 3 dc] 6 times, ch 2; join -7 ch-2 spaces and 49 dc (7 dc between ch-2 spaces).

Round 6: Join A in any ch-2 space; ch 3, * [inc] twice, dec3 (skipping dec3 of previous round), [inc] twice**, (dc, ch 2, de) all in ch-2 space; repeat from *to last space, end at**; dc in last space; ch 1, hdc in top of ch-3 to join and form last space-row ended- 7 ch-2 spaces and 77 dc (11 dc between ch-2 sps).

Note: Work the first inc of each following round in the top of the beginning ch-3 of the previous round (in the same place as the joining hdc).

Round 7: Ch 3, * [inc] twice, dc in next 2 dc, dec3 (skipping dec3 of previous round), dc in next 2 dc, [inc] twice**, (dc, ch 2, dc) all in ch-2 space; repeat from* to last space, end at**; dc in last space, end row (see italicized text at end of Round 6)- 7 ch-2 spaces and 15 dc between ch-2 sps.

Round 8: Ch 3, * [inc] twice, dc in next 4 dc, dec3, dc in next 4 de, [inc] twice**, (dc, ch 2, de) all in ch-2 space; repeat from *to last space, end at**; dc in last space, end row- 7 ch-2 spaces and 19 dc between ch-2 sps.

Round 9:With C, ch 3, * inc, dc in next 7 dc, dec3, dc in next 7 dc, inc**, (dc, ch 2, dc) all in ch-2 space; repeat from *to last space, end at **; dc in last space, end row- 7 ch-2 spaces and 21 dc between ch-2 spaces.

Round 10: With A, ch 3, *inc, dc in next 8 dc, dec3, dc in next 8 de, inc**, (de, ch 2, de) all in ch-2 space; repeat from *to last space, end at **; dc in last space, end row- 7 ch-2 spaces and 23 dc between ch-2 spaces.

Round 11: Wth D, ch 3, *inc, dc in next 9 dc, dec3, dc in next 9 dc, inc, (dc, ch 2, dc) all in ch-2 space; repeat from * to last space, end at**; dc in last space, end row- 7 ch-2 spaces and 25 dc between ch-2 spaces.

Repeat Round 11 (working 1 more de before and after center dec3) in colors as follows:

Rounds 12-13: A (working 1 dc in next 10 dc on Round 12, then in next 11 dc on Round 13). Round 14: D.

Rounds 15-16:A.
Round 17: D.
Round 18:A.
Round 19: C.
Round 20:A.
Round 21: C.
Round 22:A.
Round 23: C.
Round 24:A.
Round 25: C. There will be 26 dc before and after center dec3. Cut yarn.

Round 26: Join A in any ch-2 space; ch 3, *[inc, dc in next 6 dc, dec3, dc in next 6 dc, inc, (dc, ch 2, dc) all in next dc] twice, inc, dc in next 6 dc, dec3, dc in next 6 dc, inc**, (dc, ch 2, dc) all in next ch-2 space; repeat from *to last space, end at**; dc in last space, end row- two ch-2 spaces have been added between each of the original ch-2 spaces.

Round 27: Ch 3, * inc, dc in next 7 dc, dec3, dc in next 7 dc, inc**, (dc, ch 2, dc) all in next ch-2 space; repeat from *to last space, end at**; dc in last space, end row.

Round 28: Wth C, ch 3, *inc, dc in next 8 dc, dec3, dc in next 8 dc, inc **, (dc, ch 2, dc) all in next ch-2 space; repeat from *to last space, end at **; dc in last space, end row.
