Ch = Chain; sc = single crochet, dc = double crochet, trc = treble crochet, dtc = double treble crochet, ddt = double double treble.
Dc - means threat over hook once work off in twos.
Trc - means thread over twice work off in twos.
Dtc - means thread over three times work off in twos.
Ddt - means thread over four times and work off in twos.
Chain 8, join to form ring.
lst Row: Ch 7, 1 trc in ring, 6 more trc in ring with a ch of 3 between each.
2nd Row: Ch 4, 5 trc in first space, ch 2, 6 trc next 7 spaces, with a ch of 3 between each set six, join.
3rd Row: Ch 4, 7 trc above the 6 trc, ch 5, 8 trc above the next 6 trc, 8 trc above the next 6 groups with a ch of 5 between each group. join.
4th Row: Make first cluster above the 8 trc as follows: - ch 4, * 1 trc draw thread through 2 loops and 2 loops, leaving 1 loop on hook, make 4 such trc, then having 6 loops on hook, draw another loop through all at one, * and ch 1 to draw cluster closer together, ch 7, 1 sc in center of ch of 5, ch 7, make second cluster as follows: 1 trc, casting off 2. loops 3 times, leaving 1 loop on hook, 5 more trc same as from * to *, join and break thread. Make another daisy, and join to preceding one with slip st.
EDGE: Fasten thread in center of 7 ch, (2nd daisy to right form corner) ch 7, one sc in center of next 7 ch, ch 7, 2 dtc in center of next 7 ch, ch 7, 2 dtc in center of next 7 ch * draw through 2 loops and 2 loops and 2 loops, * leaving 2 loops on hook, 2 dtc in center of next 7 ch, work off same as from * to *, draw loop through altogether, ch 1 to draw cluster together, ch 7, 2 dc in center of next seven, ch 7, 1 sc in center of next 2 ch of 7 with a ch of 7 between each sc, ch 7, 2 dc in center of 7 ch of daisy, draw through 2 loops and 2 loops and 2 loops, holding top loop of each trc on hook, 3 ddt in center of next ch of seven, draw through * 2 loops, 2 loops, 2 loops and 2 loops * 3 ddt in next 3 ch of seven, 1 dtc in center of next ch, leaving 16 loops on hook, draw loop through all at once and fasten with sc to hold cluster together; this forms the half star in corner of yoke. Now continue all the way around and join.
2nd Row: of edge- Ch 5, 1 trc in same stitch where you join, draw through 2 loops and 2 loops, 2 trc in next sc draw 2 loops, 2 loops now draw through all loops held on hook, 2 trc in same stitch as preceding trc and 2 trc in next 2 dc always holding top loop of each trc on hook and draw altogether, so on all the way around, join.
BEADING: 2 trc in top of each cluster of preceding Row with a ch of 7 between. Scallop, 2 trc in each ch of 7 with a picot in every other one making 14 trc for scallop, now fasten scallop in center of next ch of 7 with a single crochet, and continue all the way, around.
Border on bottom is made same as on top only beading is omitted.
