Color A (Scheepjes Catona 257)
Start with a magic ring, which I like best because with a magic ring you
can very neatly determine how large (or small) you would like the
opening to be.

There are quite a few YouTube instruction videos on how to make a
magic ring, e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLUaywX0-WE

If you find it hard to make a magic ring, start with chain 6 and then form a
ring by slip stitching into the first chain made.
Magic ring.

Round 1
Ch 1 on top of the magic ring chain (=1st hdc) and work in the ring: 2 hdc, 5 dc, 1 trc, 5 dc, 3 hdc,
slst in top ch of 1st hdc to close this round.
NB: If you started with ch 6 to form a ring, you start with ch 2 for your 1st hdc.
Total of 17 stitches.

Magic ring + ch 1.

Round 1 completed.

Round 2
Color B (Scheepjes Catona 398)
Start with a sc in 3rd hdc made in round 1
1 sc in each of the next 5 stitches
1 sc, 1 ch, 1 sc in next stitch (= trc)
1 sc in each of the next 7 stitches

1 sc in next stitch, picot 3 (=ch 3, slst in 3rd ch from hook)
1 sc in each of the next 2 stitches
slst in 1st sc made to close this round.

Beginning sc in 3rd hdc.
Round 2 completed.

Round 3
Color C (Sceepjes Catona 128)
Start with a sc in the 4th sc after the picot made in round 2
slst in next stitch, picot 2 (=ch 2, slst in 2nd ch from hook)
slst in next stitch, picot 2
slst in next stitch, picot 3
slst in next stitch, picot 3
slst in next stitch, picot 3
slst, picot 4, slst in ch-1 space (picot 4= ch 4, slst in 4th ch from hook)
picot 3

Beginning sc in 4th sc after picot.
slst in next stitch, picot 3
slst in next stitch, picot 3
slst in next stitch, picot 2
slst in next stitch, picot 2 (you now have a total of 11 picots)
slst in next stitch
sc in next stitch

Cut yarn and weave in the ends.
Attach a fishhook ear wire in the picot 3 if you want to use these motifs
as earrings. Enjoy!

Round 3 completes the mini feather.
