  • Hook: 3.0mm
  • Stitch marker: for tracking the rows


  • mc - magic circle
  • ch- chain
  • sc - single crochet
  • inc - increase (two single crochet in the same stitch)
  • sl st - slip stich
  • (..) - represents the sequence that will repeat
  • x and number - the number of times to repeat a sequence
  • [..] - the number between square brackets is the number of loops at the end of row

This row will be worked with 'special' sc stiches. Insert hook into the base of next stitch (not into the top loop of the stitch, like you would for a regular sc). This will wrap your sc over the previous round.
