Gauge is not important for this project. If you have purchased the kit, it is important to use the right size hook  in order to ensure you have enough yarn.
Note – this project is worked in continuous rounds. Do not join the rounds.

 

Notes: Almost the entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

 

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

 

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

 

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.
