Row 2 Ch 6, hdc into 4th ch from hook and next 2 ch.  Working in ch 3 space from block in previous row, *ss, ch 3, 3 hdc* all in same space.  Turn.

Row 7 – 10 Continue in the same manner as previous rows, increasing with each row.  (Hint: for row 7, you should have a total of 7 blocks, row 8 a total of 8 blocks, etc.) 

Row 11 ss up the side of last block completed in previous row, ss into ch 3 space (total of 4 ss).  Ch 3, 3 hdc into ch 3 space. (You are working your blocks exactly the same, but now we are decreasing how many we will have across.)  Work blocks across your row just as you have been. When you reach the last block, do not work a new one, but just ss into the ch 3 space.  Turn

Row 12 – 19 Repeat Row 11, decreasing until you are down to 1 block.  Do not finish off! 

Ch 1, work 2 rounds of evenly space sc’s around entire cloth, working 3 sc’s into each corner

You may want to use a stitch marker or 2 to hold them together if you are having trouble holding them and stitching them together at once.

Ss top and bottom together, when you get halfway around your circles, tuck the other end of your handle between your top and bottom, make sure you ss goes through all 3 layers, then finish ss around to end. (You should have 40 ss)  Finish off and enjoy!
