  • Beginning chain/s on each row do not count unless specifically told that they do. They are merely to obtain height and a smooth transition between rows.

  • This pattern requires the knowledge of working a foundation half double crochet and also front post half double crochet.

Abbreviations:  sc = single crochet; hdc = half double crochet; dc = double crochet; fhdc = foundation half double crochet; fphdc = front post half double crochet; st/s = stitch/es; rep = repeat; beg = beginning; sk = skip

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Sew on a pretty button if you wish.
