Notes:

  • Pattern is written with a ch 4, sl st to form a ring to begin. I prefer to use a double magic ring to begin, as it is more secure. Either is acceptable for this pattern.
  • Sl st to join is worked under both loops of the stitch and pulled tightly (to make it as small as possible).
  • Sl st does not count as a stitch and we do not work into it.
  • The first st of each round is worked in the same stitch where we just worked our sl st to join.
  • The ch 1 at the end of every round does not count as a stitch.
