Round 2: Chain 1, work 10dc into ring (10dc)
Round 3: (increase round) 2dc into each stitch around (20dc) (make the first stitch into the dc from previous round)
Round 4: (Inc round) *2dc in next stitch, 1dc in next stitch *repeat from * to * all around (30dc)

Round 10: Dc in next 15 stitches, 1 treble in next 5 stitches, then dc2 together in next 20 stitches, (decreasing these to 10 stitches) then 1 treble in next 5 stitches, 1 dc in next 15 stitches. (50 sts)
Round 11: Dc in next 15 stitches, 1 treble in next 4 stitches, dc2tog for next 12 stitches (to decrease these to 6 stitches) ,1 treble in next 4 stitches, dc in next 15 stitches (44 stitches)

Making the Hanging Loop:
- Chain 16 from the stitch you are in.
- Slip stitch back into the same stitch.
- DC into 22 stitches around the chain.
- Cut a long tail of ribbon yarn and wind around the loop.
- Sew the tail in, or tuck in at the back.
