Thank you Beth for testing!!! 

Materials:
I hook
Worsted Weight yarn - any color 
Ch 4, join to form a ring

Round 1 - ch 3, 11 dc in loop, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3 (12 dc)

Round 2 - ch 4 (counds as 1st dc ch 1), dc ch 1 in each dc around, join with a sl st to 3rd ch of beg ch 4(12 ch 1 spaces)

Round 3 - ch 3, dc in same as joining, ch 2, (2 dc, ch 2) in each dc around, join to the 3rd ch of beg ch 3(12 2 dc groups and 12 ch 2 spaces)

Round 4 - ch 3, 1 dc between joining and next dc, dc in next dc, ch 2, (dc in next dc, dc between two dc on previous round, dc in next dc, ch 2) in each 2 dc group around, join with to the 3rd ch of beg ch 3 (12 3dc groups and 12 ch 2 spaces)

Round 5 - ch 3, 1 dc in same as joining, dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, (ch 2, 2dc in next dc, dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc) 10 times, ch 2, 2dc in next dc, dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, join with an hdc to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 6 - ch 1, sc around hdc, (sc in next 5 dc, sc in next sp) around, join to 1st sc.

Round 7 - ch 4, (trc, ch 3, 2 trc) in same sc as joining (corner made) [*skip sc, trc in next sc, dc in next 2 sc, hdc in next sc, sc in next 7 sc, hdc in next sc, dc in next 2 sc, trc in next sc, skip next sc*, (2 trc, ch 3, 2 trc) in next sc (corner made)] 3 times, and * to * once more, join in BLO to 4th ch of beg ch 4.

Round 8 - ch 3 (in BLO this round) dc in next dc, *(2dc, ch 3, 2dc) in next loop (corner made), dc in next 19 st*, repeat * to * 3 more times, dc across, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3

Round 9 - sl st to next corner loop, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in corner loop, [*(ch 1, skip next 2 dc, 3 dc next dc) 7 times, ch 1*, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in corner loop] 3 times, and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 10 - st st to next corner loop, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in corner loop, [*(ch 1, 3 dc in next sp) 8 times, ch 1*, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next corner loop] 3 times, and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

(NOTE: round 11 can be used to get the desired size. sub ch3/dc, or ch1/sc instead of ch2/hdc for desired size)
Round 11 - ch 2, hdc in next 2 dc, 3 dc in corner loop, [*(dc in next 3 dc, dc in next sp) 8 times* dc in next 3 dc, 3 dc in corner loop] three times, and * to * once more, join to 2nd ch of beg ch 2.
