Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), 15 dc in ring; join with a slip st in top of ch-3 - 16 dc.

Round 2: Ch 3, dc in same st as joining, inc in each dc around; join - 32 dc.

Round 3: Ch 3, dc in same st as joining, [inc, dc in next dc] 15 times, inc in last dc; join - 49 dc.

Round 4: Join A in same st as joining, ch 3, dc in next dc, [inc, dc in next 3 dc, inc, dc in next 2 dc] 6 times, inc, dc in next 3 dc, inc; join - 63 dc.

Round 6: Join A in any ch-2 space; ch 3, * [inc] twice, dec3 (skipping dec3 of previous round), [inc] twice **, (dc, ch 2, dc) all in ch-2 space; repeat from * to last space, end at **; dc in last space; ch 1, hdc in top of ch-3 to join and form last space - row ended.

Round 7: Ch 3, * [inc] twice, dc in next 2 dc, dec3 (skipping dec3 of previous round), dc in next 2 dc, [inc] twice **, (dc, ch 2, dc) all in ch-2 space; repeat from * to last space, end at **; dc in last space, end row.
