The Galaxy Crochet stitch will be used for this project. We will be working on both sides of the foundation with round 1. There will be 15 GS=Galaxy Stitch on each side for a total of 30. The first Galaxy stitch will be worked in the beginning chain 2 of each round. One single crochet will be skipped between the elongated sections of the bottom part of the stitch.
