Made up of only three rounds, this cute little stitch works up quickly and is a good motif to start with when just learning to crochet shapes.

Round 1: Work 8 sc into ring, sl st to first sc.
Round 2: Ch 5, 1 hdc in next sc (skipping sc at base of ch 5), ch 3, hdc into next sc, *ch 3, hdc into next sc; rep from * 5 more times, ch 3, sl st to 2nd ch of beginning ch 5.
