Important Notes:
-This pattern uses the Magic Circle, if you do not know how to make a magic circle (aka magic ring) check out my quick video here: https://youtu.be/64O9WVJucFA OR you can also Ch 2, then proceed to work your stitches into the first chain.
-Because this pattern is worked in the round, I recommend placing a stitch marker in the last sc of the row, moving it up as you go so you can easily keep track of your rows. 
-Sc2tog counts as one sc.
