Row 1:
Tr, ch 3, tr in the ring.

Row  2
2 tr in tr, ch 2, 5 tr in ch3-sp, ch 2, 2 tr in tr.

Row  3
2 tr in the first tr, ch 2, skip tr + ch2-sp, 1 dc in each of the following  5 tr, ch 2, skip ch2-sp + tr, 2 tr in the last tr.

Row 4
2 tr in the first tr, ch 2, tr + ch 2 + tr in ch2-sp, ch 2, skip 1  dc, 1 dc  in each of the following 3 dc, ch 2, tr + ch 2 + tr in ch2-sp, ch 2, 2 tr in the last tr.

Varv 1 – 6

Row 6
2 tr in the first tr, ch 2, skip tr + ch2-sp, 1 dc in each of the following 5 tr, ch 2, skip ch2-sp + dc + ch2-sp, 1 dc in each of the following 5 tr, ch 2, skip ch2-sp + tr, 2 tr in the last tr.

Repeat row 4 – 6, but with more repetitions of the pattern on each row, until you reach the size you want. I have repeated row  4 – 6, 31 times. Fasten off.

Here you can see what the first repetitions should look like (the edging will be made later).

Edging:  (is made from the right side)

1 dc in each of the two tr (start with a standing dc, or ss + ch 1), 2 dc in ch-sp, *1 dc in the back loop in each of the following 5 dc, 2 dc in ch-sp, repeat * to the end of this length and make 1 dc in each of the last two tr.

Weave in all the ends. Block for best result. Make tassels if you like those!
