Beginning Row: Make a single crochet in the 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across - total of 37 single crochet at the end of this row. Slip stitch into the first single crochet (at the beginning of the row) to join into a ring.
1. Beginning with the next round, you will be working in joined rounds. Do not turn at the end of each round.
2. The beginning chains do not count as stitches, they are only used to raise the work to the correct level to work the stitches.
3. Always work a stitch into every double or single crochet of the previous round. Do not work into the joining slip stitch.
4. Count your stitches after each round! If you don't have 37 stitches, check each stitch around to see where you missed a stitch or did an extra stitch. Then, just unravel your stitches back to that point to finish the round correctly.
Round 1: Chain 3, double crochet in each stitch around; join with a slip stitch in top of beginning chain-3.
Round 2: Chain 1, single crochet in each stitch around; join with a slip stitch in first single crochet.
Rounds 3-8: Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 three more times.
Weave in ends.
