Starting at center: Ch 6. Join with sl st to form ring.
1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 dc in ring (24 dc counting the ch-3 as 1 dc). Join to top of ch-3.
2nd rnd: Ch 1, sc in joining, ch 2, (skip next dc, sc in next dc, ch 2) 11 times. Join to first sc.
3rd rnd: Ch 1, in each sp around make sc, hdc, dc, hdc and sc (shell made). Join to first sc.
4th rnd: Sl st in next hdc (shell in next dc, ch 2) 12 times. Join as before.
5th rnd: Sl st in next hdc, (shell in next dc, ch 3, skip next sp) 12 times. Join.
Next rnd: Work as for 5th rnd, making 1 ch more between shells.
7th rnd: Sl st in next hdc, * shell in next dc, ch 3, sc in next sp, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.
8th rnd: Sl st in next hdc, * shell in next dc, ch 3, in next sc make tr, ch 2 and tr (tr-V st made), ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.
9th rnd: Sl st in each st across to next V-st sp, ch 5, dc in same sp, * ch 15, dc-V st in next V-st sp, making dc's instead of tr's (V st over V st made); ch 15. Repeat from * around. Join to 3rd ch of ch-5.
10th rnd: In V-st sp make sl st, ch 5 and dc, * 13 dc in next loop, dc-V st over next V st. Repeat from * around, ending with 13 dc in last loop. Join as on 9th rnd
(12 scallops started).
11th rnd: Ch 1, sc in V-st sp (sc in V st made); *ch 2, skip the 2nd dc of the V st and following dc, sc in next dc (ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc) 5 times; ch 2, sc in next V st. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 2. Join to first sc.
12th rnd: Ch 4, hdc in joining (starting hdc-V st made), skip next ch-2 sp, 3 dc in each ch-5 loop across next scallop, skip next ch-2 sp, hdc-V st in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with 3 dc in last ch-5 loop. Join to 2nd ch of ch 4.
13th rnd: Ch 1, * sc in V st, ch 2, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc) 5 times; ch 2. Repeat from * around. Join to first sc.
14th rnd: Work as for 12th rnd, making 5 dc in center loop of each scallop, instead of 3 dc.
15th rnd: Ch 1, * sc in V st, ch 2, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc) twice; ch 5, skip next 3 dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc) twice; ch 2. Repeat from * around. Join to first sc.
16th rnd: Work as for 12th rnd, making 7 dc in center loop of each scallop.
17th rnd: Ch 1, * sc in V st, ch 2, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc) 7 times; ch 2. Repeat from * around, Join.
18th rnd: Repeat 14th rnd.
19th rnd: Ch 1, * sc in V st, ch 2, skip next dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc) 4 times; ch 5, skip next 3 dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc) 4 times; ch 2. Repeat from * around. Join.
20th rnd: Starting hdc-V st in joining, * skip next sp, (3 dc in each of next 2 loops, ch 1) twice; 7 dc in next loop, (ch 1, 3 dc in each of next 2 loops) twice; skip next sp, hdc-V st in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with 3 dc in each of last 2 ch-5 loops. Join.
21st rnd: Ch 1, * sc in V st, ch 5, tr-V st in next ch-1 sp, (ch 7, d tr-V st in next ch-1 sp) twice; ch 7, tr-V st in next ch-1 sp, ch 5. Repeat from * around. Join.
22nd rnd: Starting hdc-V st in joining, * ch 3, 3 dc in next V st, 7 dc in next loop, 3 dc in next V st. 9 dc in next loop, 3 dc in next V st, 7 dc in next loop, 3 dc in next V st, ch 3, hdc-V st in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join to 2nd ch of ch-4.
23rd rnd: Ch 1, * sc in V st, ch 2, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc) 5 times; ch 5, skip next 3 dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc) 5 times; ch 2. Repeat from * around. Join.
24th rnd: Starting hdc-V st in joining, * skip next sp, 3 dc in each of next 4 loops, 5 dc in each of next 3 loops, 3 dc in each of next 4 loops, skip next sp, hdc-V st in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with 3 dc in each of last 4 ch-5 loops. Join as before.
25th rnd: Ch 1, sc in V st, ch 2, skip next 3 dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc) 4 times; (ch 5, skip next 3 dc, sc in next dc) twice; (ch 5, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc) 4 times; ch 2. Repeat from * around. Join.
26th rnd: Starting hdc-V st in joining, * skip next sp, 3 dc in each of next 3 loops, 5 dc in each of next 2 loops, ch 1, 5 dc in each of next 2 loops, 3 dc in each of next 3 loops, skip next sp, hdc-V st in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with 3 dc in last 3 ch-5 loops. Join.
27th rnd: Ch 1, * in V st make sc, ch 3 and sc; ch 2, skip the 2nd dc of V st and next dc, (sc in next dc, ch 2, skip next 2 dc) 6 times; sc in next ch-1 sp, (ch 2, skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc) 6 times; ch 2. Repeat from * around. Join to first sc.
RUFFLE: 1st rnd: * In next ch-3 loop make (sc, ch 9) 5 times; in each of next 14 ch-2 sps make (sc, ch 9) 3 times. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 4, d tr in first sc to form last loop. Next 7 rnds: Ch 1, sc in loop just formed, * ch 9, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join as on first rnd. At end of 8th rnd, break off and fasten. Starch lightly and press.
