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

Round 2: Ch 4, (dc, ch 1) in each dc around, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 4. (12 dc and ch 1 sp)

Round 3: Ch 5, dc in same st as joining (beg V), V-stitch in each dc around, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 5. Finish off CA

Round 4: Join CB to an V-stitch space, (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2dc) in V-stitch (beg DblV), DblV in each V-Stitch around. Join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 5: Sl st to ch 2 sp of DblV, (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2dc) in ch 2sp, ch 1, (DblV, ch 1) in each DblV around, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 6: Sl st to ch 2 sp of DblV, (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2dc) in ch 2sp, ch 2, (DblV, ch 2) in each DblV around, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3. Finish off CB

Round 7: Join CA to any ch 2 sp of a DblV, [ch 5, (trc, ch 1) 2 times and trc once more] in DblV, [*ch 2, DblV in next DblV, 4 hdc in next ch 2 sp, DblV in next DblV, ch 2,* (trc, ch 1) 6 times, and trc once more in corner (making 7 trc in the corner with a ch 1 sp in between each)] 3 times, and * to * once more, (trc, ch 1) 3 times in same corner as joining, join to the 4th ch of beg ch 5.

Round 8: (ch 3, 2dc, ch 3, 3dc) in same trc as joining, [*ch 1, skip next (sp,trc,sp,trc), dc in next sp, ch 1, dc in next sp, ch 2, sc in next sp, ch 2, hdc in next hdc, ch 2, skip next 2 hdc, hdc in next hdc, ch 2, sc in next sp, ch 2, dc in next sp, ch 1, dc in next sp, skip next (trc,sp,trc,sp)*, (3dc, ch 3, 3dc) in next trc] 3 times, and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 9: Sl st to corner loop, (ch 3, 2dc, ch 3, 3dc), [*sk next 3 dc, skip next sp, DblV in next dc, DblV in next sc, skip next sp, skip next hdc, DblV in next sp, skip next hdc, skip next sp, DblV in next sc, skip next sp, skip next dc, DblV in next dc, ch 1* (3dc, ch 2, 3dc) in next corner] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 10: Sl st to corner loop, (ch 3, 2dc, ch 3, 3dc) in same corner [*dc in next 3 dc, dc in next sp, (skip next dc, hdc in next dc, sc in next ch 2 sp, hdc in next dc, skip next dc, dc in next sp) 5 times, dc in next 3 dc,* (3dc, ch 2, 3dc) in next corner] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.
