Doily

Rnd 1: With color A, ch 8, sl st in first ch to form ring, ch 3, 23 dc in ring, join with sl st in top of ch-3. Fasten off. (First ch-3 counts as first dc; 24 dc made)
Rnd 2: Join color B with sc in first st, sc in each dc around, join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in each of first 2 sts, ch 20, (sc in each of next 2 sc, ch 20) around, join.
Rnd 4: Sl st in second sc, (sl st, ch 3, 11 dc, ch 2, 12 dc) in first ch-20 sp, (12 dc, ch 2, 12 dc) in each remaining ch-20 sp around, join with sl st in top of ch-3. Fasten off.

Rnd 6: Join color B with sc in first st, sc in each dc around with (sc, ch 3, sc) in each ch-2 sp, join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You will notice that the 12 ‘points’ of the Pinwheel have a natural tendency to twist. In the following round, you will twist each point and work into the ch-3 sp at the center top of the point. The wrong side of the stitches on the previous 2 rounds will be facing you as you work Rnd 7. Make sure that you twist each point in the same direction!
Twist each point as shown in photo when working Rnd 7
