Here’s a brief reminder of how to do the crochet stitches required in this pattern:
Chain Stitch, ch st: Make a loop on hook, pull another loop through it, forming 1 ch st, repeat for length required.
Slip Stitch, sl st: Make a ch, skip 1 st, insert hook into ch st, thread over hook, draw through ch st and loop together.
Double Crochet, dc: Make a ch, thread over hook, skip 3 sts, insert hook into next st, draw thread through ch, thread over hook, through 2 loops, thread over hook, through 2 loops.
In this pattern, all the double crochet stitches are done directly into the base ring.
