Tutorials you may find helpful:
Note: Beginning in R2 you will be working in the back loop for this entire project.
R1: Leave an 8″ tail of yarn; Foundation Single Crochet 180 times, line up the beginning and end of R1 and make sure it does not twist.
You will be working in continuous rounds. Do not slip stitch to join or chain additional stitches unless specifically indicated.
R2: (1 blsc in the first st, 1 bldc in the next st, 1 blsc in the next st) 60 times
R3: Work (1 blsc, 1 bldc, 1 blsc) in each bldc around. Skip all other stitches.
R4-R17: repeat R3, finish off and weave in ends. Use the initial 8″ tail of yarn to close the small gap left at the beginning of R1 before adding the edging below.
Edging: Now attach your yarn using a single crochet join, in any stitch that lines up with a double crochet on the unworked loop of R1. Now you will work one ‘imitation’ round of R3 around; as an edging. Try your best to line up the stitches so it mimics the position of the other sets of stitches you worked from R3-R17.
