Scheepjes Catona left to right: 128, 398, 257.
            Base
            Colour A (Scheepjes Catona 257)
Start with a magic ring, which I like best because with a magic ring you can very neatly determine how large (or small) you would like the opening to be.
If you find it hard to make a magic ring, start with chain 6 and then form a ring by slip stitching into the first chain made.

Magic ring.













Round 1

Ch 1 on top of the magic ring chain (=1st hdc) and work in the ring: 2 hdc, 5 dc, 1 trc, 5 dc, 3 hdc
slst in top ch of 1st hdc to close this round.
NB: If you started with ch 6 to form a ring, you start with ch 2 for your 1st hdc.
Total of 17 stitches.
