Stitch Guide

Pattern is worked in rounds.
Pattern is worked from the top down.
Starting chains/turning chains count as stitches.
You will not turn your work.
Throughout R3, you will notice your work getting wavy. It should. (See last image.)

Special Stitches

This is a v-stich variation of 2 double crochets worked between 2 double crochets.

Back bump only means that you are working behind the stitch from the front so it pushed the stitch forward exposing the front loop and back loop. (The next image is taken from the back side of the work because I couldn’t get a better image for you. Do not turn your work; just reach back over the front and back loops.)
