Note:

  • The turning chains (tch) do not count as a stitch, they are only used to get height for the next round.
  • Does your work tend to get wavy? You may have too many stitches, so gradually decrease a few stitches. Otherwise, you might want to try a half-size smaller hook.
  • Does your work pull together too tightly? You may have too few stitches, so gradually add a few extra stitches. Otherwise, try using a half-size bigger hook.
