Ch 25 (multiple 6 sts +1)

Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. (24 sc)

Rnd 2: Ch 1, *sk next 2 sc, 7 dc in next st, sk next 2 sts, sc in next st; rep from * around, join with sl st. Change to MC, turn.

Rnd 3: Ch

Ch 25 (multiple 6 sts +1)

Rnd 2: Ch 1, *sk next 2 sc, 7 dc in next st, sk next 2 sts, sc in next st; rep from * around, join with sl st. Change to MC, turn.

Rnd 3: Ch 3 (count as first dc)

Step 1: Yo, insert hook in next st, yo, pull through just 2 loops as if working a dc halfway, instead of completing a dc, *yo, insert hook in the next st and work another ½ dc; rep from * once more (4 loops on hook), your work should look like this:

Step 2: Yo, pull through all 4 loops creating ¼ of a Catherine’s Wheel, ch 1 to create the “eye” of the wheel, ch 2, sc in next st (this should be the middle dc of shell from the previous rnd).

Step 3: Ch 3, *yo, insert hook in next st, work a ½ dc; rep from * over next 6 sts including the sc in between the 2 shells from the previous rnd (8 loops on hook), your work should look like this:

Step 4: Yo, pull through all 8 loops creating ½ of a Catherine’s Wheel, ch 1 to create the “eye” of the wheel, ch 2, sc in next st, (this should be the middle dc of the shell from the previous rnd).

Step 5: Rep Step 3 and then Step 4 all the way around until there are 3 sts remaining. In these 3 sts, work ½ dc as you did to start the rnd creating the ¼ Catherine’s Wheel, yo, pull through 4 loops, but instead of chaining to create and “eye,” simply sl st into the eye of the first ¼ Catherine’s Wheel created, turn.

Rnd 4: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), in the same “eye” dc 3 times creating ¾ of a Catherine’s Wheel, *sc in the sc from the previous rnd, sk chains and work dc 7 times in the “eye” of the next ½ Catherine’s Wheel creating a full wheel; rep from * all the way around to the ¾ Catherine’s Wheel, dc 3 times in that eye, sl st in beg ch-3, completing the wheel, turn.

Rnd 5: Change to CC, ch 3, *yo, insert hook in next st, work a ½ dc; rep from * over the next 6 sts including the sc in between the 2 shells from the previous rnd, yo, pull through all 8 loops creating ½ of a Catherine’s Wheel, ch 1 to create the “eye” of the wheel, ch 2, sc in next st, (this should be the middle dc of the shell from the previous rnd). Continue in this fashion all the way around the base of the garment, end with a sc in the same st at start of rnd, turn.

Rnd 6: *Sk chains and work dc 7 times in the “eye” of the next ½ Catherine’s Wheel creating a full wheel, sc in the sc from the previous rnd; rep from * all the way around, sc in the same st at start of rnd, turn.
