Turn work at the beg of each rnd.


If you find it difficult to join the beg ch into a ring without twisting the ch, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row, then joined into a rnd, as follows: Leaving a long beg tail, ch 85, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; join with sl st in first sc - 84 sc.

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

Proceed to Rnd 2.
