PATTERN NOTES

The beginning ch-2 doesn’t count as a stitch.

For a tight, no-hole result make back loop hdc into the back loop and into the middle loop at the back of the stitch.

Gauge is not critical to this project. it can be crocheted using any weight yarn working with smaller hook than recommended.
