1. With the colour required for the inner circle make an adjustable ring and ch 3 (counts as 1st dc [1]; work 11 more dc into ring and tighten.  Join with a sl st to top of ch 3 [2]. (12 sts)

2. Ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), work another dc into same st * work 2 dc into each stitch around.  Join with a sl st and fasten off. [3] (24 sts)

3. With colour for ‘porthole’ ch 12 and join into a ring. [1]

4. Ch 1 and work 24 sc into ring.  DO NOT JOIN.  [2]

5.  Ch 1 [3], then working over the sc sts work 24 dc into ring.  You may find it easier to mark the 1st dc with a stitch marker [4] so that you can tell which stitch it is.  Spread the 24 dc sts evenly around the ring and join into top of 1st dc and fasten off. [5] (24 sts)

6. You will see that the porthole ring is bigger than the inner circle – that’s how it should be.  When you join it the porthole will puff out slightly because it’s bigger than the bottom circle.
