12th rnd: Ch 5, make a 4-dtr cluster in joining, * (ch 10, skip next 7 sc, 5-dtr cluster in next sc) twice; (ch 10, skip next 6 sc, 5-dtr cluster in next sc) twice. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 10, skip next 6 sc, 5-dtr cluster in next sc, ch 10. Join to tip of first cluster.
13th rnd: Repeat 3rd rnd.
14th rnd: Sl st in next 5 sc, in next ch-5 loop make sl st, ch 6 and (dtr, ch 1) 4 times; * in next ch-5 loop make (dtr, ch 1) 5 times. Repeat from * around. Join last ch 1 to 5th ch of ch-6-32 fans.
15th rnd: Sl st in next sp, ch 6, * (dc in next sp, ch 3) 7 times; joint dc over last sp of this fan and first sp of next fan, ch 3. Repeat from * around, ending with (dc in next sp, ch 3) 7 times; dc in last sp of last fan. Join to 3rd ch of ch-6.
16th rnd: Ch 1, sc in joining, * (ch 3, dc in next sp) 8 times; ch 3, sc in joint dc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join to first sc.
17th rnd: Ch 1, sc in joining, * 2 sc in next sp, (ch 3, dc in next sp) 7 times; ch 3, 2 sc in next sp, sc in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, 2 sc in last sp. Join.
18th rnd: Ch 1, sc in joining, sc in next sc, ** skip next sc, 3 sc in next sp, ch 4, dc in next sp, * ch 3, dc in next sp. Repeat from * across to within one sp before next 5-sc group, ch 4, 3 sc in next sp, skip first sc of next 5-sc group, sc in next 3 sc.
