  • 3 skeins worsted weight yarn
  • I used Vanna's Choice in Taupe
  • Size J crochet hook
  • Yarn needle


  • 10in (25cm) wide
  • 56 in (142cm) in circumference

Stitches Used (US terms)

  • Ch Chain
  • Dc Double Crochet
  • Dc2tog Double crochet 2 together or a double crochet decrease
  • Sl St Slip Stitch
  • Dc2tog: [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops] 2 times, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook

Note: Crochet the beginning chain really loosely. When working into the chain I always work into the back ridge loop (not the same as the back loop). It is a little more time consuming, but it is worth it, because this will give your bottom edge a finished look.


Ch 120

Edit ch 119 or will need an odd number of stitches if will end up with an extra chain

Note: I like working into the chain before joining. It prevents you from twisting the chain. Later you can take the starting tail and join with bottom edge.

Round 1: Dc2tog into the 4th and 5th ch from the hook, dc in last ch worked which is the 5th ch)… this is the pattern stitch. The first 3 chains count as a dc.

(Dc2tog into the next 2 chains, Dc in last ch worked) Repeat this across the beginning ch. Join the round with a sl st into the top of the first dc.

If you feel more comfortable with joining the chain from the get go then use this method.

Traditional Rnd 1: Join ch with sl st (careful not to twist ch). Ch 3 (counts as first dc). Dc2tog in next 2 chs, dc in last ch worked, repeat the pattern stitch around. Join with sl st to first st.

Rnd 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), (dc2tog next 2 sts, dc in last st worked) repeat around. Join with sl st to first dc.

Rnd 3-14: Repeat Rnd 2. Finish off.

Don't worry… once you get used to the pattern stitch… you'll be fine.
