6th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, ch 3, in same space make dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (shell made); in each ch-3 space around make shell of 2 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc. Join.

7th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next ch-2 sp, ch 3, in same sp make dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (shell over shell made); * ch 1, in next ch-2 sp make 2 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (another shell over shell made). Repeat form * around, ending with ch-1, join.

8th to 12th rnds: Repeat 7th rnd, having an extra ch between shells in each rnd.

13th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, ch 3, in same sp make dc, ch 5 and 2 dc; * ch 6, shell over shell, ch 6, in next ch-2 sp make 2 dc, ch 5, and 2 dc. Repeat from * around, join.

14th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, ch 4, 12 tr in same sp, * ch 5, shell over shell, ch 5, 13 tr in next ch-5 sp. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5, join.
