Here’s the pattern – this makes one 8" medallion:
Crochet Hook – J (adjust based on the yarn you are using)

Round 2: Chain 3. Double crochet in same stitch at bottom of chain 3. Crochet 2 double crochets in each stitch around circle for a total of 24 double crochets. Connect with a slip stitch.

Round 3. Chain 9. Skip 3 double crochets and slip stitch in 4th double crochet. Repeat around circle to create 6, “chain 9” loops. Connect last loop in starting stitch with a slip stitch.
Round 4: Working across chain 9 loop, slip stitch in each of the first 4 chains. Single crochet around the chain 5 stitch. (at the top point of the chain 9 loop). Chain 11.
