Pattern notes

The pattern is written using USA terminology, for a conversion chart to US terminology.

The squares are worked in the round. You do not need to turn your work after each row and you continue working in the same direction as before.

(Stitches written in brackets like this are all worked into the same stitch.)

For the first stitch on each row: Chain 1 to move up to the next round if the round starts with double crochet. Chain 2 if the round starts with a half treble crochet, and chain 3 if the round starts with a treble crochet. These chains count as the first stitch in the row
