Pattern notes: I made my circles in one shade but you can change shade on each round if you prefer and get creative making a multi colour circle. Change shade by completing the final part of your treble stitch of the previous round with your new shade. I used a contrast shade to turn my circle into square for Round 5, I like to start my round just after the last treble stitch of Round 4 but it’s entirely up to you where you start Round 5.
Foundation Round Using any colour make a magic loop or chain5, and ss to join into a ring.
Round 1 Into the magic loop or ring ch3 (counts as tr), 11tr into the ring, ss to join into beg ch-3, fasten off. (12tr)
