  • In order for your project to turn out the correct size, always check gauge before beginning.

  • This pattern includes one size (see size chart).

  • The pattern is worked from the top down.

  • If the number comes before the abbreviation for example: 2hdc, this means stitch the given number into the same stitch. If the number is given afterward, for example: hdc2, this means to half double crochet the given number over the next 2 stitches.

  • All the joins are completed with a slip stitch.
