STITCH GUIDE

slst – slip stitch

sc – single crochet

GOOD TO KNOW:

You will be working in a spiral, it means  that you won’t join the beginning and end of each round.  Rather you will continue around, making the first st of each round in the first st of the previous round.I strongly recommend using a stitch marker when you work in a spiral as you won’t have any other prompts to remind you where the end of the round should fall.

Make two of these, dont cut the yarn on the second one.
Put the pieces together, back to back, be careful with the six corners

Now you will assemble the two pieces with one sc in every stitch, be careful with the four loops, dont miss anyone.
