Square 9 -- Circle Granny Square

I chose the circle Granny square to make next.
I've never made one before so I used the pattern by Kate from Signed With an Owl's blog
Here is Kate's beautiful square
and here is mine
Kate has really good photo's and instructions on her blog for the block.
I followed her instructions for rows 1-5 except that I used an H hook.
My instructions probably aren't very clear and I apologize for that in advance.
I'm writing them out in my own way mainly for me to go back and make more squares for another afghan, but I will be more than happy to try to help you understand my way of writing if you are interested in making some of these squares. 
 Just leave a comment or email me.
So here's my changes:
Row 6:  (white)  I started in between a 2 DC of Row 5 with a SC, ch 3.    SC in between the next set of two DC of Row 5 all the way around. (24 ch 3 sets and 24 SC around)
Row 7:  sl into the ch 3 space, ch 3 for your first DC and add 2 more DC, ch 1 in same space, 3 HDC, ch 1 in next chain 3 space , 3 SC, ch 1 in next 2 ch 3 spaces, 3 HDC, ch 1 in next ch 3 space,
and now for the corner: 3 DC, ch 2 in the next chain 3 space and then 3 DC, ch 1 in the next ch 3 space.  So the corner will take 2 of the ch 3 spaces.
Continue around with the 3 HDC, ch 1 and SC, ch 1 as above. 
Row 8:  (purple)  In each corner of Row 7 make 3 TC, ch 2,  3 TC, 1 DC in the BL of the next 3 stitches, ch 1 and sk ch of previous row, 3 HDC in the BL of the  next 3 stitches, ch 1, 3 SC in the BL of the next 3 stitches, ch 1 and repeat backwards for the other side of the row.  (24 stitches and 5 ch on each row)
Row 9:  (light blue)  1 SC, ch 2, 1 SC in each corner and a SC in the BL of each stitch and ch of the previous row.  (31 SC)
Row 10:  (darker blue)  2 SC, ch 2, 2 SC in each corner space and a SC in each stitch of the previous row.  (35 SC on each side)
