Finished Size:

Finished size is about 7.5” tall. Size varies based on yarn, crochet hook, and how tightly you crochet.

Special Stitch Instructions:

Most pieces begin with a “ring”. Use any type of ring you are comfortable with (i.e. Magic Circle, chain 2 and single crochet in second chain, etc.). You’ll be working in one continuous spiral, unless otherwise noted.

The use of a marker is very useful if you’re not used to working in continuous rounds. It’s also great if you have to stop midway.
