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.
