Foundation using colour A: ch6 and ss into the 6th ch from the hook to form a circle.

Round 1 using colour A: ch3, tr, ch1, *2 tr, ch1* 5 times. ss into the third chain from the bottom of the original chain. Tie off.

Connect colour B into a chain 1 space from round 1

Round 2 using colour B: ch5, 2 trs into the same space. *ch1, 2 trs into the next chain 1 space, ch 2, 2 trs into the same space* 5 times. ch 1, tr, ss into the third chain from the bottom of the original chain.

Round 3 continuing to use colour B: ch3, 6 trs into the chain 2 space (you will have 7 stitches including the initial chain 3 which creates a ‘fan’) ss into he chain 1 space. *7 trebles into the chain 2 space, ss into the chain 1 space* 5 times. Insert your hook into the third chain of the original stitch and ss. Tie off.

Connect colour C into a space between the 7 trebles.

Round 4 using colour C: dc between each treble. Once you reach the ss from the previous row, dc into the space from row 2 in order to crate a longer stitch. continue to dc between each stitch and ss once you have worked your way around. Tie off.

Connect colour D. Find the centre treble of your ‘fan’ and count back 3 stitches. Connect your yarn into the top of the double crochet from round 4

Round 5 using colour D: ch3, tr into the next dc, tr, tr (this should now be your centre stitch) ch1, tr into the same space, tr, tr, tr.

This will be repeated on each ‘fan’. It is crucial that you locate the correct stitch to work your next treble, so if need be, find your centre stitch again and count back three. This is where you will insert your first treble.

They Put Away Their Phones

Nothing will turn someone off to you like a mid-conversation text message or even a quick glance at your phone. When you commit to a conversation, focus all of your energy on the conversation. You will find that conversations are more enjoyable and effective when you immerse yourself in them.

They Are Genuine

Being genuine and honest is essential to being likeable. No one likes a fake. People gravitate toward those who are genuine because they know they can trust them. It is difficult to like someone when you don’t know who they really are and how they really feel.

Likeable people know who they are. They are confident enough to be comfortable in their own skin. By concentrating on what drives you and makes you happy as an individual, you become a much more interesting person than if you attempt to win people over by making choices that you think will make them like you.

*tr, tr, tr, (tr, chain 1, tr) into same space, tr, tr, tr.* 5 times. ss into the third chain from the bottom of your previous row. Tie off.

Blocking may be beneficial but not essential.
