➤ Chains at beginning of a round/row NEVER count as a stitch. ➤ Total number of stitches per round/row in (#) at end. ➤ I tend to crochet TIGHT, so you may need to adjust your hook size to accommodate. ➤ I suggest using the invisible join for a seamless look when finishing off. Heart Hook Home video tutorial for Invisible Join First DC Options: In this pattern, the 1st DC st in rows/rounds will always be noted as a regular DC. There will be NO Chain instructions on rows/rounds beginning with a DC. **Use your preferred method for 1st DC stitch of these rows/rounds.** 1 – Chainless Beginning DC: This is the technique I prefer to use & this pattern is written using it. I use this same technique for 1st DC/FPDC/BPDC of rows/rounds. Moogly Video Tutorial for Chainless Beginning DC stitch 2 – Stacked SC: Stacking 2 SC will result in a similar look to a DC st without
