Notes:

I prefer to use a double magic ring to begin as it is more secure. You may substitute and begin with a ch 4, sl st to form a ring. Either is acceptable for this pattern.

Pattern is written with a sl st join at the end of each round. I prefer to use an invisible join instead because it is tidier. Either is acceptable for this pattern except for R5 which cannot end with an invisible join and the last round, which should have an invisible join.

Pattern does not have a turning chain for each round because I usually start each new round with a standing st. If you prefer a sl st join and a turning chain, feel free to substitute.
