The following are suggestions for placements for your circles – the first image is the one I used.

Repeat from * to ** all around circle.
To join the circles – you will SL ST into the opposite SC (black) of a circle.

When joining to more than one circle – SKIP 2 ‘picots’ in-between.

NOTE: leave a least 10 cm piece of yarn for joining at start.

With yarn (Black) make a magic circle/or CH 6 and SL ST into first CH to make a ring

RND 1: CH 2 (does NOT count as a ST); work 12 DC into ring; SL ST into first DC worked. (12 DC)

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

“Crochet is an art and crocheters it’s artists. Each crafted item is unique and own to its crafter”
