GAUGE:
4 1/2 double crochet = about 4 in. (10 cm). EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:
If you find it difficult to join the beginning chain into a ring without twisting the chain, Round 1 can be worked as a row, then joined into a round, as follows: Leaving a long beginning tail, chain 28, single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across; join with slip stitch in first single crochet-27 single crochet at the end of this row.

Use beginning tail to sew gap at base of first row closed.

Proceed to Round 2.
