Repeat from * until there are 8 center spokes and 8 outer spokes. Join with sl st to first ch of ch-7. Break off. With right side of outer spokes facing, attach thread to outer loop of any outer spoke.
2nd rnd: In same loop as thread was attached make sc, ch 3 and sc; * ch 7, in next outer loop make sc, ch 3 and sc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 7. Join with sl st to first sc.
3rd rnd: Sl st in next ch-3 loop, ch 3, holding back on hook the last loop of each dc, make 2 dc in same loop, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (3-dc cluster made, counting ch 3 as 1 dc), * ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 5, make a 3-dc cluster in next loop.

4th rnd: Ch 8, * (sc in next loop, ch 5) twice, dc in tip of next cluster, ch 5. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5. Join to 3rd ch of ch-8. 5th rnd: Ch 3, dc in same place as sl st was made (dc group started), * ch 3. sc in next loop, ch 3, in center ch of next loop make dc, ch 3 and dc (V st made); ch 3, sc in next loop, ch 3, 2 dc in next dc (another dc group started). Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join to top of ch-3.
6th rnd: Ch 3, dc in same place as sl st, dc in next dc, * ch 3, make 9 tr in next V-st sp (shell made), ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join (8 shell panels started).
7th rnd: Ch 3, 2 dc in next dc (1 dc in-creased), dc in next dc, * ch 3, sc in next loop, ch 5, sc in center tr of shell, ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 3; dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join (8 shell panels and 8 dc groups).
8th rnd: Ch 3, dc across dc group, increasing 1 dc in center of group (5 dc, counting ch-3 as 1 dc), * ch 3, (sc in next loop, ch 5) 3 times; sc in next loop, ch 3; dc across dc group, increasing 1 dc as before (5 dc). Re-peat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join.
9th rnd: Ch 3, dc across dc group, increasing 1 dc as before (6 dc), * ch 3, skip next loop, sc in next loop, ch 5, V st in center ch of next loop, ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 3, dc across dc group, increasing 1 dc as before (6 dc). Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join.
10th rnd: Ch 3, dc across dc group, increasing 1 dc as before (7 dc), ch 3, sc in next loop, ch 5, shell in next V-st sp, ch 5, skip next loop, sc in next loop, ch 3, dc across next dc group, increasing 1 dc as before (7 dc). Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join.
11th rnd: Ch 3, dc across dc group, increasing 1 dc as before (8 dc), ch 5, skip next loop, sc in next loop, ch 5, sc in center of shell, ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 5, dc across dc group, increasing 1 dc as before. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5. Join.
8th to 11th rnds: Constitute the pattern for shell panels between dc groups.
12th rnd: Ch 3, dc in next 3 dc (4-dc group, counting ch-3 as 1 dc), ch 3, dc in next 4 dc (another 4-dc group made), * work in pattern across shell panel; across next dc group make 4-dc group, ch 3 and 4-dc group. Repeat from * around. Join.
13th rnd: Ch 3, dc in next 3 dc (dc group over dc group made), * V st in center ch of next loop (another shell panel started), dc in next 4 dc (another dc group over dc group made); work in pattern across shell panel, dc group over dc group. Repeat from * around. Join.
14th rnd: Dc group over dc group, ch 3, 3-dc cluster in next V-st sp, ch 3, dc group over de group, work in pattern across shell panel. Repeat from * around. Join.
15th rnd: * Dc group over dc group, ch 5, sc in tip of cluster, ch 5, dc group over dc group; work in pattern across shell panel. Repeat from * around. Join.
16th rnd: Dc group over dc group, ch 3, sc in next loop, ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 3, dc group over dc group; work in pattern across shell panel. Repeat from * around. Join.
17th rnd: * Dc group over de group, ch 5, skip next loop, V st in center ch of next loop, ch 5, dc group over dc group; work in pattern across shell panel. Repeat from * around. Join.
18th rnd: * Dc group over dc group, ch 5, shell in next V-st sp, ch 5, dc group over dc group, work in pattern across shell panel. Repeat from * around. Join. 19th rnd: Dc group over dc group; work across next shell panel as for 7th rnd, dc group over de group; work in pattern as established across next shell panel. Repeat from * around. Join.
20th to 23rd rnds: Dc group over dc group, work in pattern across shell panel. Repeat from * around. Join.
24th to 27th rnds: Work in pattern as established, increasing 1 dc on each rnd in the center of the first and in every other dc group alternately around. There are 8-dc groups and 4-dc groups alternately around on 27th rnd.
28th rnd: * Make 4-dc group, ch 3 and 4-dc group over 8-dc group (another shell panel started); work as for 20th rnd across the next shell panel, the next dc group and the fol-lowing shell panel. Repeat from * around. Join.
29th to 38th rnds: Work in pattern as established, shaping the shell panel just started as for 13th to 22nd rnds.
39th rnd: Ch 3, dc in next dc, ch 5, sc in last dc made (picot loop); dc in next 2 dc; * ch 5, skip next loop, sc in next loop, in center of next shell make (ch 5, sc) twice; ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 5, across next dc group make 2 dc, picot loop and 2 dc. Repeat from * around. Join.
40th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in following picot loop, in same loop make ch 4, 2-tr cluster and (ch 3, 3-tr cluster) twice; ch 5, make a 3-sc group over the next loop, the next sc and the following loop; ch 5, in next loop make (3-tr cluster, ch 3) twice and 3-tr cluster. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5. Join. Break off. Starch lightly and press.
