Pattern Notes

For every 1st double crochet of each round, I suggest using chainless starting double crochet technique or ch 2 then make a double crochet into same stitch (counted as 1st dc). So in the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc (double crochet) instead of ch 3 for every 1st double of each round.
