Finished Size:

Finished size is about 7” 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 you feel comfortable with (i.e. Magic Circle, chain 2 and single crochet in second chain, etc). You’ll be working most pieces in a continuous spiral, as indicated by the MC. If your row starts with CH then you’ll be working in regular rows unless otherwise indicated.

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.
