Ch 4 and sl st into beg st to form a ring.
ch 2 ( counts as first DC) DC 15 into ring, sl st in top of beg ch 2 (16 sts)
ch 2, DC into same stitch. * Dc 2 into all sts around * sl st in top of beg ch 2 (32 sts)
ch 2 and FPDC onto the post of the CH 2 from round 2, * sk a st, V st (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) into next stitch, sk a st, FPDC onto post of DC. * repeat for round. Until you reach the end of the row. If you ended up with 2 or 3 stitches at the end of this row it doesn’t matter, you still want to do a V stitch nearest the beginning ch 2.
So if you have 3 sts at the end of this row, sk 2 st and V st (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2)
or if you have 2 sts at the end of this row, sk 1 st and V st (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2)
Then sl st in the beg FPDC not the ch 2.
ch 2 and FPDC onto the post of the CH 2 from previous round. * sk a st, V st
(dc 3, ch 1, dc 3) Make note you dc 3 instead of 2 for this round fo V sts. Sk a st, FPDC onto last rounds FPDC * repeat for row. Then sl st in the beg FPDC.
ch 2 and FPDC onto the post of the CH 2 from previous round. * DC 1 in the next 3 dc’s, ch 1 and skip the ch 1 space and DC 1 in the next 3 sts. FPDC onto the next FPDC, then we’ll do our corner, DC 1 in the next 3 dc’s, then working in the ch 1 space work a DC 3, ch 1, DC 3 all in the same space. Dc 1 in the next 3 Dc’s, FPDC onto the next FPDC * repeat for the round Then sl st in the beg FPDC.
