Milwards Steel Crochet Hook No. 9.

Starting at one end of center, ch 10.
1st row: Holding back on hook the last loop of each tr, 3 tr in 10th ch from hook, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (cluster made); ch 7, dc in tip of cluster just made, 3-tr cluster in same ch as first cluster was made (cluster shell made). Ch 9, turn.
Next 8 rows: In ch-7 loop of cluster shell make 3-tr cluster, ch 7, dc in tip of cluster just made and 3-tr cluster (cluster shell over loop made). Ch 9, turn.
10th row: In ch-7 loop make 3-tr cluster, ch 3 and 3-tr cluster. Now work in rnds as follows:
1st rnd: Make 15 tr in each of the ten ch-9 turning chains around (10 solid shells made). Join with sl st to first tr.
2nd rnd: Sl st in next 3 tr, ch 4, dc in next tr, (ch 1, dc in next tr) 7 times-starting open shell over shell made; dc in 4th tr of next shell, (ch 1, dc in next tr) 8 times-open shell over shell made; (open shell over shell) twice; dc in first tr of next shell, (ch 1, dc in next tr, ch 1, in next tr make dc, ch 1 and dc; ch 1, dc in next tr) 4 times, ch 1, dc in next tr, ch 1, in last tr of shell make dc, ch 1 and dc (corner open shell over shell made); (open shell over shell) 4 times; corner open shell over shell. Join to 3rd ch of ch-4.
3rd rnd: Ch 1, * across each of the next 4 open shells make sc in first sp and (ch 3, sc in next sp) 7 times-7 loops over each shell made; across corner open shell, make sc in first sp and (ch 3, sc in next sp) 18 times-18 loops over shell made. Repeat from * around. Join to first sc.
4th rnd: Ch 1,** sc in first loop over shell, * (ch 7, skip next loop, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 3, sc in first loop over next shell. Repeat from * 3 times more; (ch 7, skip next loop, sc in next loop) 4 times; ch 3, sc in next loop, (ch 7, skip next loop, sc in next loop) 4 times; ch 3. Repeat from ** around. Join as before.
5th rnd: Sl st in next 3 ch, ** sc in first loop over shell, * (ch 7, sc in next loop) twice; ch 9, skip next ch-3 sp, sc in first loop over next shell. Repeat from * 3 times more; (ch 7, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 9, skip next ch-3 sp, sc in next loop, (ch 7, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 9, skip next ch-3 sp. Repeat from ** around, ending with ch 5, tr in first sc to form last loop.
6th rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop just formed, ** ch 7, * (sc in next loop, ch 7) twice; in next loop make sc, ch 7 and sc; ch 7. Repeat from * 3 times more; (sc in next loop, ch 7) 3 times; in next loop make sc, ch 7 and sc; (ch 7, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 7, in next loop make sc, ch 7 and sc. Repeat from ** around, ending with sc in first loop used at beg of rnd; ch 3, tr in first sc to form last loop.
7th rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop just formed, * ch 7, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around, forming last loop as before.
8th rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop just formed, * (ch 3, make a cluster shell-as on first row-in center ch of next loop, ch 3, sc in next loop) 9 times; (ch 3, cluster shell in center ch of next loop) 7 times; ch 3, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3. Join to first sc.
9th rnd: Sl st to within ch-7 loop of first shell, in loop make sl st, ch 4 and 10 tr; 11 tr in each remaining ch-7 shell loop around. Join to top of ch-4.
(32 shells).
10th rnd: Sl st in next 2 tr, ch 4, dc in next tr, (ch 1, dc in next tr) 5 times; * dc in 3rd tr of next shell, (ch 1, dc in next tr) 6 times. Repeat from * around. Join to 3rd ch of ch-4.
11th rnd: Ch 1, * sc in next sp, (ch 3, sc in next sp) 5 times. Repeat from * around. Join to first sc.
12th rnd: Ch 1, * sc in next loop, (ch 7, skip next loop, sc in next loop) twice; ch 1, sl st in next 2 sc, ch 1. Repeat from * around, ending with sl st in last sc.
13th rnd: Sl st to center of next loop, ch 1, sc in loop, * ch 7, sc in next loop, ch 9, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 9. Join to first sc.
14th rnd: Sl st to center of next loop, ch 1, sc in loop, * ch 5, cluster shell in center ch of next loop, ch 5, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5. Join as before.
15th rnd: Sl st to center of ch-7 loop on first shell, ch 1, * sc in ch-7 loop of shell, (ch 13, sc in next ch-7 loop) 9 times; (ch 15, sc in next ch-7 loop) 5 times; ch 13, sc in next ch-7 loop, ch 13. Repeat from * around. Join.
16th rnd: Ch 1, sc in joining, over each of the next 9 ch-13 loops work as follows: (ch 5, skip next 2 ch, sc in next ch) twice; ch 5, skip next ch, sc in next ch, ch 5, skip next 2 ch, sc in next ch, ch 5, sc in next sc; over each of the next 5 ch-15 loops work as follows: (ch 5, skip next 2 ch, sc in next ch) twice; (ch 5, skip next ch, sc in next ch) twice; ch 5, skip next 2 ch, sc in next ch, ch 5, sc in next sc; work across next 11 loops exactly as for previous ch-13 loops; work across next 5 loops exactly as for previous ch-15 loops; work across last 2 ch-13 loops as before. Join, break off and fasten. Starch lightly and press.
