Getting near the middle!

Hopefully your tree is looking somewhat like this silly boy's hat!So you now have 4 rows treble branches
3 rows dc branches.
Ok, now we're going to make those branches even smaller!
Each branch will now go like this;
dc, ch1
dc, ch1
dc, ch2
dc, ch1
dc, ch1
dc, ch1

And you can skip 2-3 posts between branches, depending on how you like the branches looking. I skipped around some to get my branches lined up where I wanted them. You can't mess up this pattern, so don't worry about not skipping the same amount of posts between branches!

Do 2 spiraling rows like this,
and then we make the branches even smaller.
Next 2 rounds will go like this;
dc, ch1
dc, ch1
dc, ch2
dc, ch1
dc, ch1

Now you can do a row or two of;
dc, ch1
dc, ch1
dc, ch1
dc, ch1

and while getting near the top now, you will want to start doing hdc's.
hdc, ch1
hdc, ch2
hdc, ch1
and skip only 1-2 posts between branches now.
