Step-by-step crochet instructions
Make a foundation chain of 200 chain stitches plus 1 returning chain.
1st round – (right side) – slip stitch* 200 and chain 1
You should be at the beginning of your foundation chain where your starting point is.
*slip stitch (sl.st.) – insert a crochet hook into the second chain from your hook, grab the yarn, and pull it through the chain. You should have 2 chains on your hook. Then pull the 2nd stitch on your hook through the first one. You must have 1 remaining st. on the hook.
After that, do not turn your work to the wrong side. Just proceed crocheting the 1st round using bottom loops of the foundation chain.
1st round continue – (right side) – sl.st. to end
Cut the yarn and secure it.
