MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole 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 yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, ch 3, then work 11 dc around the loop. Pull yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side.

CROCHET TIP: Replace 1 hdc at beg of round with 2 ch.

STRIPES:
Work stripes as follows:
0-27 cm / 0-10½": 2 strands off white
27-37 cm / 10½"-14½": 1 strand off white and 1 strand ice blue
37-47 cm / 14½"-18½": 2 strands ice blue
47-57 cm / 18½"-22½": 1 strand ice blue and 1 strand gray blue
57-67 cm / 22½"-26½": 2 strands gray blue
