MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the thread over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull thread through loop, work ch 1, then work sc around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end at the back. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE:
After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last sc and first sc on the round, move the marker upwards when working.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 sc by working 2 sc in next sc.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 sc by working 2 sc tog as follows: * Insert hook in next sc, get thread *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook.
--------------------------------------------------------

CLEMENTINE:
Worked in the round in a circle. Start by making a MAGIC CIRCLE - read explanation above - at the bottom of clementine with orange on hook size 4.5 mm / US 7.
ROUND 1: Work 7 sc in the magic circle - READ WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE.
ROUND 2: Inc 1 sc in every sc = 14 sc.
ROUND 3: * 1 sc in next sc, inc 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 21 sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, inc 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 28 sc.
ROUND 5: * 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc, inc 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 35 sc.
ROUND 6-10: Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 11: * 1 sc in each of the next 5 sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 sc.
ROUND 12: Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 13: * 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 sc.
ROUND 14: * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 sc.
ROUND 15: * 1 sc in next sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 12 sc.
ROUND 16: Work all sc tog 2 by 2 = 6 sc, cut the thread. Fill the clementine with some poly stuffing, sew the last 6 sc tog with thread end. NOTE: Pull the thread end through the top and bottom of clementine to make a dent in each side.

LEAF:
Worked back and forth. Crochet a row with 6 ch and opal green on hook size 4.5 mm /US 7, then crochet along the ch-row as follows: 1 sl st in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in next ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 dc in next ch, 3 dc in the last ch. Then work on the other side of ch-row as follows: 1 dc in next ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 sc in next ch, 1 sl st in last ch, cut and fasten the thread.

ASSEMBLY:
Work another leaf the same way and fasten them at the top of the clementine. Sew a couple of stitches with brown between the 2 leaves.
