I was able to whip up one of these motifs in about 7 minutes, so I imagine making this will be really quick. I found needing to change hook size 3 times a bit of pain though. I decided to make one with just one hook size and the results are that the one made with all 3 hooks (yellow center) is 5 inches across, and the one made with only the I hook (red center) is 5 inches across. The one made with all three hooks looks someone neater, with a small center, but I think I prefer the one made using just the I hook.

I noticed the measurements I listed were sanitized by the sites validation script. The motif made with all 3 hooks (yellow center) is 5 inches across. The one made using only the I hook (red center) is 5 and a half inches across.

Is this pattern missing a few rows? Instructions for 4 rows only. Thank you.
