Pattern Notes

  • The foundation ch can be substituted for a foundation double crochet of 85sts..
  • You may wish to recount stitches at the end of each row just to ensure the number of required stitches are correct as you work.
  • You may find it useful to add a stitch marker into the first and last st of your row, moving the stitch marker up as you work.
  • The ch 3 at the start of a row counts as the first dc, this can be substituted with a ch 2 if you have a looser tension and it produces too big a gap.
