Begin at center bottom with your color choice, CH 6, join with SL ST to form a ring.
RND 1: (CH 3) for first DC, work 9 DC in ring, join with SL ST to top of starting (Ch -3) till 10 DC counted, including starting chain
RND2: (CH 3) for first DC, Dc in same ST as starting CH, 2 DC in each DC around, join in SL ST to top of starting (CH-3) till -20 DC counted, included starting CH
RND3&4 : (CH 3) for first DC, Dc in same ST, DC in next DC, 2 DC in next DC repeat around, join- 30 DC on RND 3; 45 Dc on RND 4
RND5: CH 3 for first DC, DC in each of the next 2 DC, 2 DC in next DC; repeat around join -60 DC
RND6: CH 3 for first DC, DC in same ST as starting CH; Dc in each of the next 3 DC, 2 Dc in the next; Repeat around, join -75 DC
RND 7: CH 3 for first DC, Dc in same ST as starting CH, Dc in next 4 DC, 2 DC in next DC: repeat around, Join-90
RND8: CH 3 for first DC, Dc in same St as starting CH, DC in next 5 DC, 2 Dc in next; Repeat around, join -105 DC
RND9: CH 3 for first DC, Dc in same ST as starting CH, DC around and inc 19 DC evenly spaced, join 124-DC
RND10: Ch 3 for first DC, DC in each DC around, join

Easy instructions…..Start with six , join to make round, double every DC in next row, double in every 2nd DC in next row and every 3rd DC in next, and double in every 4th DC in next row, then every fifth until you have reached 8-9 “ diameter. Continue Single DC in each DC until desired length, remember to add in some spaces for loops near top edge….Easy as pie…sort of..
