Skill Level: Intermediate

Abbreviations
FPDC = Front Post Double Crochet
BPDC = Back Post Double Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
CH = Chain
SL ST = Slip Stitch
EA = Each
BEG = Beginning

Size I Crochet Hook
4-ply Worsted Weight Yarn

Gauge:
4 inches = 8 Rows
4 inches = 10 Stitches

NOTE: There is a chain 1 used at the beginning of each round. This chain 1 will not count as a stitch. It is just used as a step up to the next round. It will also help eliminate noticeable seams.

Post Stitch Note: Complete each new post stitch around the chain 1 and the first stitch.

Chain 4, join

Round 1: CH 1, 15, HDC through the CH, join (15 Half Double Crochet)

Round 2: CH 1, 1 HDC between each stitch in the previous row. (15 Half Double Crochet)

Round 3: Ch 1, *1 HDC between the next St's, 1 HDC in the top of the next ST. Complete 15 times total from *. join in beginning stitch. (30 Half Double Crochet) This is an increase round with staggered stitches.

Round 4: CH 1, *1 HDC between the next St's, 1 HDC in the top of the next ST. Complete 26 times total from *. 1 HDC in ea of the last 2 stitches. We want to end up with 56 stitches exactly with this round. The next rounds will be done in segments of 4 so that is why we need the even number. (56 Half Double Crochet)

Round 5: Ch1, *1 BPDC around ea of the next 4, 1 DC in ea of the next 4 stitches, Complete 7 times total from *, join.

  3. Melanie,
    As long as you knot your tails in well it won't unravel even if the tails do come out. If the tails should come out, all you do is sew them back in if that happens. I just wash it on a regular warm cycle and throw it in the dryer. You do need to check the label on the skein of yarn. Some yarns may not recommend washing.

  6. linhtran1994,
    On round 3 there are only 15 staggered stitch increases. The last 2 stitches are regular stitches. The video goes in to detail about this round too.
