• Size 10mm Crochet Hook 
  • 1 Ball of Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek or 205 Yards of a Similar Worsted Weight Yarn
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends


Ch - chain 

Hdc - half double crochet 

St(s) - stitch(es)

Slst - slip stitch 

Hlo - hidden loop only (the loop that is located directly below the back loop of hdc)


7 sts ×11 rows in pattern = 4”


Begin by chaining 60. Join with a slst to first ch to form a ring being careful not to twist.

Round 1: Ch 1. Hdc in every ch around. Once you have completed the last hdc, do not join. Twist work down so that you are working on the opposite side of your beginning ch and continue to hdc in every ch around. Join with a slst to your very first hdc.

You will now have 120 stitches in this round and in every  consecutive round.

Now your work will be twisted. That's what you want. When you continue to work consecutive rounds you'll be working around both sides of the beginning ch without having to twist each time as the work will automatically twist on its own. 

Round 2: Ch 1. Hdc in the hlo of every st around. Join with a slst to first hdc.

Rounds 3 - 12: Repeat round 2 ten times. Fasten off and weave in ends.
