3cl: yo, insert hook in specified dc, yo and pull up a loop, yo, pull thru 2 loops, (yo, insert hook in next dc, yo, pull thru 2 loops on hook) 2 times, yo and pull thru 4 loops on hook.

 
With gold, ch 4, join to form a loop
Round 1: Ch 3, 11 dc in ring, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3, finish off gold.

Round 2: Join orange to same dc as joining, (ch 2, dc in next dc) beg cluster made, ch 2, (2cl in current and next dc, ch 2) around, join to 2nd ch of beg ch 3. finish off orange.

Round 3: Join blue to any ch 2 sp, (ch 3, 2dc, ch 3, 3dc) in loop, [*2 hdc in next loop, sc in next 2cl, 2 hdc in next loop*, (3dc, ch 3, 3dc) in next loop] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 4: Sl st to corner, (ch 3, 2dc, ch 3, 3dc) in corner, [*skip next dc, 3cl in next 3 st, (ch 2, 3cl in current and next 2 st) 3 times, ch 1, skip next dc*, (3dc, ch 3, 3dc) in corner] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3. Finish off blue.

Round 5: Join orange to any corner, ch 1, [5 sc in corner, sc in next 3 dc, sc in next ch 1, (sc in next 3cl, 2 sc in next sp) 3 times, sc in next sp, sc in next 3 dc] 4 times, join to 1st sc. Finish off orange.

Round 6: In back loops only, join purple to any 3rd sc of corner, (ch 3, dc, ch 3, 2dc) in corner [*(ch 1, skip sc, 2cl in next 2 sc) 7 times, ch 1, skip next sc*, (2dc, ch 3, 2dc) in corner] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 7: Sl st to corner, (ch 3, dc, ch 3, 2dc) in corner [*dc in each st and sp across, (2dc, ch 3, 2dc) in corner] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 8: (if needed) ch 1, sc in each st to corner, [5 sc in corner, sc in each st across] 4 times, join to 1st sc. Finish off purple. Weave in the ends that we love so much!
