Do not turn at the end of each row.

Pattern

Row 1. Chain 75, 1 slip stitch in the first chain.

Row 2. Chain 2 (these chains do not count as a stitch), make 1 half double crochet in the base where you just made the 2 chains, make 1 half double crochet in each stitch around, skip the 2 chains and make 1 slip stitch in the first half double crochet that you made at the beginning of this row. (75)

Rows 3-19. Chain 2 (these chains do not count as a stitch), make 1 half double crochet in the base where you just made the 2 chains, (skip the next stitch, make 1 half double crochet in the next stitch, make 1 half double crochet in the stitch you skipped) repeat around, skip the 2 chains and make 1 slip stitch in the first half double crochet that you made at the beginning of this row. (75)

Row 20. Chain 1 (this chain does not count as a stitch), make 1 single crochet in the base where you just made the chain, make 1 single crochet in each stitch around, make 1 slip stitch in the chain you made at the beginning of this row that counted as the first single crochet, fasten off and work away yarn ends.

Edging

Attach yarn in between two half double crochet stitches that you made in row 2. Chain 1. Make 1 single crochet in the base where you just made the chain.

  • You have apparently given the knitting gauge for this yarn, as on the yarn website. But in this gauge, 8″ = 48 rows, and the pattern finishes with 20 rows. In stitches, 21″ = ~95 stitches, not 75. I have not actually made a swatch yet, but the math doesn’t look right. ?
