Granny Square Instructions:
Chain 4, join into a ring with a slip stitch. Round 1: Chain 4, work (3 dc into center of ring, chain 1) 3 times, then 2 dc into center of ring. Join to close with a slip stitch. Round 2: Slip stitch over to the first corner space. Then, to work the corner of round 2, first chain 3, then 2 dc in same space, then chain 1, then 3 dc in the same space...first corner done! Then chain 1, then work the next corner by working 3 dc in next space, chain 1, then 3 dc in same space, chain 1, repeat two more times to complete the round. Round 3: Work the corner in the same manner as the previous round: slip stitch over to the first corner space, then chain 3, 2 dc in same space, chain 1, 3 dc in same space, chain 1. To work the sides, simply work 3 dc in the next space then chain 1...repeat until you reach a corner again. Keep working in this manner, with two clusters in the corners and one cluster on the sides until you finish the round. Just be sure there is a ch 1 in between each grouping of 3 dc as you work each round. That is what gives you those pretty spaces in between each cluster and keeps it nice and flat.

Fasten off, weave in any ends that remain and move onto the dot instructions below...



Small Circle Instructions (shown in pink, make 3):

Ch 4, join in the chain furthest from the hook with a sl st.

Round 1: Ch 1, then work 11 sc into the center of the ring.  Join the round with a sl st.  

Round 2: Ch 1, then work a sc into the first st.  Work 2 sc in each st all the way around the circle.  Join to close the round with a sl st.



Medium Circle Instructions (shown in yellow, make 3):

Round 1: Ch 2, then work 11 hdc into the center of the ring.  Join the round with a sl st.  

Round 2: Ch 2, then work a hdc into the first st.  Work 2 hdc in each st all the way around the circle.  Join to close the round with a sl st.



Large Circle Instructions (shown in orange, make 3):
