These wheels are pretty and may be joined by crocheting the picots together while making them, or you may sew them together if you wish after they are made.
Make a chain of 8 sts and join into a ring using sl st.
1st round: 5 ch (3 of them take the place of the 1st dc), 1dc in circle, *2ch, 1dc in circle; repeat from * 5 times more
(or until you have 7 loops), ch2, join with a sl st to to 3rd ch at the beginning of the round.
2nd round: one sc on every st and 2 sc into each space of the previous round.
3rd round: Chain 10, miss 2sts, 1dc in next st, **ch7, miss 2 sts, 1dc in next st; repeat from * 5 times, ch7, join to 3rd ch at the beginning of round with a sl st.
4th round: Over 7ch of previous round work *3sc, 1 picot of 4 ch, 2sc, 1 picot, 2sc, 1 picot, 3sc; repeat from * in each 7
chain loop to the end of the round. Join to beginning of round with a sl st and fasten off. This completes one wheel.
