Skill Level: Easy

Finished Size: 6" x 6"

Supplies:
Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn
Size I (5.5 mm) Crochet Hook
Tapestry Needle
Scissors

Abbreviations (US Terms):
BLO - Back Loop Only
Ch - Chain
Dc - Double Crochet
Hdc - Half Double Crochet

Important Notes:
-This pattern uses a magic circle, if you don't know how to make one you can learn how here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64O9WVJucFA
-A group of stitches listed between these brackets [ ] are to all be worked in the same space.

Round 1: Magic circle, ch 1, 8 hdc in circle. Pull circle tight, do not join. (8 hdc)

Place a stitch marker in the last hdc made.

Now, instead of joining with a sl st you will begin working in the round by working the first stitches directly into the first hdc of row 1.

Round 2: In BLO: [Sc, hdc] in first, 2 hdc in next and in each around. (1 sc, 15 hdc)

Move the stitch marker to the last hdc made and continue to do this at the end of each round as you go to help you keep your place.

Round 3: In BLO: 2 hdc in first, hdc in next. *2 hdc in next, hdc in next.* Repeat *to* around. (24 hdc)
Round 4: In BLO: 2 hdc in first, hdc in next. *2 hdc in next, hdc in next.* Repeat *to* around. (36 hdc)
Round 5: In BLO: 2 hdc in first, hdc in 2. *2 hdc in next, hdc in 2.* Repeat *to* around. (48 hdc)
Round 6: In BLO: Hdc in 3, 2 hdc in next. *Hdc in 3, 2 hdc in next.* Repeat *to* around. (60 hdc)
Round 7: In BLO: [Sl st, ch 2, 2 dc] in first. 3 dc in next and in each around. Join with a sl st. (180 dc)

Don't worry about counting your dc's in round 7, it's ok if you're off by a few.

Fasten off and sew in ends.
