RND 1:  6 dc into the ring. Pull tight.

RND 2: ch 3 (does not count as a stitch here and throughout), *(puff-st, ch) twice, (puff st, ch, puff st) into the next ch-sp, Rep from * twice. Join into the top of your 1st puff with a sl st. (8 puff st)

RND 3: ch 3, (puff st, ch, puff st, ch) into each ch-sp. Join into the top of your 1st puff with a sl st. (16 puffs) Fasten off.

Join CC2 to the between of any 2 puff sts in the ch-sp.

RND 4: ch 3, 3-cluster into same ch-sp, ch 1, (3-cluster, ch 1) into each ch-sp. Join into top of cluster-st with sl st. (16 clusters) Fasten off.

Join MC or CC1 into any ch-sp.

RND 5: ch 4 (counts as a dtr), (dtr, ch 2, 2 dtr) into same ch-sp, *(tr, 2 htr) into next ch-sp, 3 dc into next ch-sp, (2 htr, tr) into next ch-sp**, (2 dtr, ch 2, 2 dtr) into next ch-sp, Rep from * three times, stopping at ** on last rep. Join into top of ch 4 with sl st.

RND 6-7: ch 3 (counts as st), tr in each st to the corner-sp, (2 tr, ch 2, 2 tr) into corner-sp. *Tr to the next corner-sp, (2 tr, ch 2, 2 tr) into corner-sp, rep from * 3 times, tr to last st.
