Alternatives

The pattern below can be adjusted, depending on your own preferences. For example:

  • The initial ch on round 1 can be made with a magic ring. 
  • You can start each round with standing stitches where ever possible, instead of ch.
  • You can end rounds with either an invisible join (as shown in the pictures below) or with a sl st . 
  • I prefer to weave in the ends after each round, for best result. You can choose to do that after finishing all rounds as well.
