Cross St: (takes 2 dc) skip dc, dc in next dc, dc over last dc made in dc just skipped.
 
Ch 4, join to form a loop
Round 1: Ch 4, 3 dc in loop, (trc in loop, 3 dc in loop) 3 times, join to 4th ch of beg ch 4.

Round 2: Ch 3, trc and dc in same st as joining, [*dc in next 3 dc*, (dc, trc, dc) in next trc] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3

Round 3: Sl st to next trc, ch 1, [(sc, ch 3, sc) in trc, (ch 3, skip next dc, sc in next dc) twice, ch 3] 4 times, join to 1st sc

Round 4: Sl st in next loop, ch 3, (trc, dc) in same loop, [*3 dc in next 3 loops*, (dc, trc, dc) in corner loop] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Round 5: Sl st in next dc and trc, (ch 3, dc, trc, 2 dc) in trc, [*dc in each dc to trc, (2 dc, trc, 2 dc) in trc] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3

Round 6: Sl st to next trc, (ch 3, dc, trc, 2dc) in trc, [*dc in next dc, (ch 1, skip dc cross st in next 2 dc) 4 times, ch 1, skip next dc, dc in next dc, * (2dc, trc, 2dc) in next trc] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3

Round 7: Sl st to next trc, (ch 3, dc, trc, 2dc) in trc, [*dc in next 2 dc, (cross st in cross st, ch 1) 5 times, cross st in next cross st, dc in next 2 dc*, (2 dc trc, 2dc) in next trc] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3

Round 8: Sl st to trc, ch 1, [(sc, ch 5, sc) in trc, ch 5, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc, ch 5, skip 2 dc, sc in next ch 1 sp, (ch 5, sc in next ch 1) 4 times, ch 5, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc, ch 5, skip next 2 dc] 4 times, join to 1st sc

Round 9: Sl st in next loop, (ch 3, 2dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in loop, [*3 dc in each loop to corner loop, (3dc, ch 2, 3dc) in corner] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3

Round 10: Sl st to corner loop, (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2dc) in corner, [*skip next dc, (3 dc in next dc, skip 2 dc) 9 times, 3 dc in next dc, skip next dc,* (2dc, ch 2, 2dc) in corner] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 3

Round 11: Ch 1, sc in each dc to corner, [3 sc in corner, sc in each dc across] 4 times, join to 1st sc. Finish off.
